Still as engaging, exciting, and funny as the first one. But unfortunately it's so much like the first one that it feels more like a redo than a robust continuation.
Visually lush & wonderfully shot, this is a fairly faithful adapation of the novel with a clear passion for the material and several strong performances driving it. It's just a shame about Keanu Reeves and his complete and utter inability to perform a British accent. (See also Keanu in Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing.)
