    It’s like walking into a dance club sober at the end of the night where there’s no security or bouncers.

    ★★½

    This film has not aged well.

    The VFX and CGI made me feel like I was in a virtual room in a computer screen most of the time.

    The plot is recycled, rehashed, and reused from the freshness of the first one but manages to be extremely thin.

    The one plus was that it managed to make me laugh out loud a few times.

    I remember knowing that I saw this in theaters back in 2002 as a senior in high school, however, I had forgotten everything except the prologue.
    I have a feeling I will likely forget it again.

    ★★★★★

    This is a fantastic miniseries. The writing, directing, and acting are all superb and the cast is at the top of their game. It's well told, riveting, and haunting and should be a model for how to do historical docudramas in the future - making a well-told narrative out of the detailed historical events.
