4 that I gave is for CGI and some acting. But not all actors were good. Some characters were certifiably stupid and other things made no sense unless you just accept them as part of the story and don't attempt to question it... It felt as if the budget was too big for the studio and they rushed through the editing and filming process. Major, major fail because of it! I didn't know which characters to like or hate as almost all were dis-likeable, which should not happen!
Overall, I found the movie pretty boring. It took me 15 minutes of trying to remember what happened in the first one(shot a few years back) to even understand what was happening in the beginning. I heard other people asking each other what is going on. Basically, if you haven't watched the 1st one, you will have some trouble understanding the 2nd(this one) as the movie does not go about explaining everything, other than very light details. But even though I watched the 1st one, it was still a bit hard to follow not only because I couldn't remember some details, but also because of the very bad script/story which never helped.
Some dialog was very "theatrical" and fake. Nobody likes that. Viewers connect better to real dialogs.
1st movie was much better imho. It was flawed,but it was better nevertheless.
Acting: 6/10 ( some were good and some really bad)
