Good sequel, but does not soar as high as the first film did.
6 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this sequel, however for the most part I feel it was a bit unnecessary as the last movie wrapped up okay. This one only tops the first one in that the ending is a bit more final, in that it feels like there is not going to be anything else afterwords and all the questions have been resolved. In this one the young boy is once again going to board the Galaxy Express for destinations unknown. He is reunited with Matel whom he seems to really like a lot and they are off on another adventure that just is not as memorable as the first film. I have seen them both about the same number of times, but that one I can remember more of while this one the main things I remember is the kind of snotty robot girl who at the end has a change of heart that is kind of sad as know one really is there to acknowledge it and the ending itself where the young boy must face off against a very deadly adversary that has a shared past with the young boy. Captain Harlock is back and plays a bit more of a prominent role in this movie than he did the last and most of the other main players are back as well as one adversary thought disposed off. Like I said, the only thing this movie does is tie everything together at the end while most of the journey to get to the end feels very similar to the first film. In the end it is good, but not the first film.
