I really wanted to support the cause and I did make it through to the end credits.
BUT it really was bad. It reminded me of one of those really bad soap dramas on terrestrial TV when you're abroad. In fact that's pushing it, at least those soaps have a plot you can understand even if you can't understand what they're saying!
It felt like different parts of the film were made by different people with different skill levels, different budgets, different visions and different scripts.
Like they all went off and made their bit independently, then someone else tried their best to stick all the pieces together and make sense of it all.
Some good scenes, music and even 'some' good acting. But so far and few between. So much of it was that bad it was almost painful to watch. A real shame especially after the first one.
Two stars because I feel bad it was that bad.
