So I'll leave you with the short version, which is that I enjoyed it quite a bit. There are things I loved and things that bugged me; I do think the first one was notably better, and I can understand what people disliked about it. But overall, in terms of the story and most of the characterization and the experience of watching it, I come down in the positive column. Certainly I'm interested in seeing it again.
More to come.
