Lackluster, yet fun sequel
17 February 2002 | by (Dixie, USA) – See all my reviews

Sequels rarely come close to the original, and this is no exception. With the exception of N!xau, most of the cast has changed. It's an attempt to recapture the magic of the first movie, but it falls short. Yet, I still love it, and feel it's still a good movie, since there is a weaving of multiple stories. It's a nice film for fans of the original.
