For me, the film started out really shaky, but it just won me over. It did practically everything that was keeping me from loving the first film, giving weight to the central romance and just making more mature choices all together. The film still hasn’t shed its juvenilia completely, but now it serves as an accent rather than a focus, and the story benefits as a whole for it. It’s still far from perfect: entire subplots could be dropped without much effect, the screenplay could be a lot tighter, and the filmmaking could’ve been less rushed. But overall, it’s an improvement, providing the most important thing of all: a love worth fighting for.
