Really good story and character development; echoes with part 1 a lot, so better make sure u remember the details from that before watching this. I think the themes of this movie is redemption and forgiving, while the themes of part 1 is regrets and the judgement of good/evil. Very inspiring. Jumps between storylines thus may be a little confusing, but it's good and clear overall. The backstory from 1000 yrs ago is very well written. CGI did keep up the standard. May need to watch it twice to be able to pick up all the details and clues.
