Not as impressive as I had hoped it would be...
16 September 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

As much as the first movie was good, this sequel turned out to be somewhat disappointing and nowhere near as interesting or captivating as the first movie was.

It was nice though, to see the cast together again and revisiting their previous roles from the first movie. But storywise, then "The Iron Ladies 2: Before and After" just lacked a profound red thread and that special ingredient which was present in the first movie.

The story is about how The Iron Ladies have broken up due to differences and how they manage to get back together, having to conquer various personal and team differences in order to reunite in the former glory. This time they are taking on a team that resembles a mockery of their own, being an almost copy of their original team.

Where the first movie was sassy and lovable, the sequel comes off as a rushed movie, forged with the iron was still hot - or while The Iron Ladies was still hot, so to speak. Sort of like a rushed attempt to cash in on the fame of the first movie. And the end result comes out as half-hearted and lacking the charisma, sassy wits and genuine lovable nature that was ever-present in the first movie.

It should be said that the cast still pull off good performances, but they just didn't have a proper script or proper story to work with.

If you have seen the first "The Iron Ladies" movie and enjoyed it, then you might want to check out the sequel as well. However, just be warned that it is not up to par with the first movie, not by a long shot. Where I rated the first movie 7 out of 10 stars, then this sequel have to settle for a mediocre 5 stars out of 10.
