Perhaps I should pray that I too will remember our love so little, because I will never know joy again until I forget, or you remember.

I've watched both parts and they entertained me very well. The second part was better, because the role of Kristanna Loken ("T3") was bigger and the fightscenes looked much better! This is a very good TV movie and Benno Fürmann ("The Order"), Max von Sydow ("Minority Report") and Alicia Witt ("Vanilla Sky") did a great job. Julian Sands ("Warlock") was very cool as the bad guy ;)
The story was different to the original German saga, but it was enjoyable. The effects were also very exciting for this budget! (23 Mio.)
First part: 6/10 Second part: 8/10
