But not by that much. Actually the main actor does help a lot and the vote could have been lower without him. Sharon Stone on the other hand, seems almost completely misplaced. I'm not sure if they had American backing or if the director/producer or whoever was a fan of hers, but she almost put me off the movie. And I quite like her in other movies, but this one ...
With that being said, we get more of Largo and his back-story. While I'm not familiar with the source material (haven't read anything, only watched the first movie), it seems like there is a rich story behind the character. I'm not sure if there will be another installment into the series (could go even further back I guess), but I do know that Largo made an impression on me overall. Good action-thriller that delivers what it needs to
