Bullshit. I was the one who got Becker to talk. If it wasn't for me, you and that bitch would be nowhere.
You're absolutely right, you deserve an equal share or maybe 60/40. After all, you were the one who had to go back inside.

You can only appreciate this sequel if you saw the first one as there are so many references to it. Whereas the first one was quirky, original and well produced this one isn't. It's just OK.
There are too many silly behaviours and plot holes to mention like leaving the killer to get up and walk away for no good reason when they could easily have got him. Plus its full of the usual clichés. The two actors are wasted in a film with much lower production costs. It looks and feels a bit cheap. Even the so called special effects aren't up to much.
The actors work well together but I think Dennehy is the one that adds character and depth and saves the film.
So all in all a disappointment. I'll be watching the first one again sometime but not this one.
