I very much enjoyed the first film back when I got its home release, and while I looked forward to a sequel, I was always pretty skeptical if it would live up to the standards of the original film. Just saw Chapter 2 earlier today, and this movie is a fantastic action film. I didn't think the sequel would outdo the action scenes in the first, at best be its equal, but the stuff on display here is a spectacle. The gun and fight choreography is jaw-dropping at times, and much credit goes to, and this also applies to the first film, the lack of shakey cam; you clearly see everything happening on screen, and for the most part, the actors are actually going at it with each other.
Not really a spoiler, but if you do go see it, early in the film it has a wind down period followed by a huge build up where almost no action happens. I personally didn't have an issue with this, but I know some people out there would just want this to be all action, all the time. When the action finally resumes, it's an entertaining, R-Rated rollercoaster ride.

I'm planning to see it, but I might have to wait until I buy the blu-ray. The first movie surprised me by how awesome it was, though, so I know that I will watch the sequel at some point. And since everyone is gushing over it, I know to look forward to that moment.

I just hope all the hype doesn't skew your expectations of the film. It's really a pure, enjoyable action flick that does a lot of things right, like the first film.

It's more of the same withOUT trying to go "Bigger" and the ending completely mixes up future installments of the franchise and that's really damn well done.
