I had high expectations for this movie, but also fear it could not deliver - unfortunately I was left with feeling that the latter were right.

It is still a good movie, great actors, interesting plot, etc. but it is still "just" a sequel to a better movie.
I loved the first movie, and the genre of murder mysteries - I don't mind them being fun and silly... but I just sat with the feeling a lot of this was lazy writing to make bigger and grander plot twists.
