Although the film is just as imaginative as the first film, and entertaining, it is not as good. The original heroes are back, as well as the cute little monster, Wuba. This film was more about effect instead of plot, especially towards the end when the wire-effects became a bit too much and the fighting scenes became repetitive.
I found some of the humor downright silly, while others were really funny. Some of the action scenes felt Charlie Chaplin-inspired, and were quite wonderful, actually. Regardless of whether you enjoy the plot, you have to admire the film for its visuals. It truly is a visual spectacle (especially the first half of the film). They also have fantastic sets.
I enjoyed the film, but would much rather watch the first film a few more times instead of giving this a second viewing.
