There’s a lot wrong with this sequel: very little actually happens, what does happen is wildly implausible, and almost nothing makes sense without reference to the superior original. However, the languid pace allows us ample time with the characters, who are more complex and interesting than your average crime-thriller fodder. If I were watching this film theatrically I’d be disappointed, but viewed as an episodic drama in the tradition of Traffik it has a lot going for it.
