My Thoughts:

We just finished this film. I enjoyed it quite a bit... unfortunately Brittany wasn't as impressed with it as I was. Before watching this film everyone I talked to that seen it already said it was even better then the first. While I enjoyed it quite a bit... I don't think I would go that far. I would say it is as good as the first... but not better. It is definitely worth the time put in to watch it. I would say if you liked thef first film... then this one is a must see.

My Rating:

I wasn't that thrilled by the first one, so I think I will give this one a pass, at least until it drops significantly in price.

addicted2dvd ... you are right.  This was definitely a 4.0 for me.  I think it is better more well formed than the first but I liked the first one very much too.  They have followed the flavor of the books quite well and i am looking forward to the 2part finale. 
Thank you
