Could be kinda like when you hear a song and think it sucks but when you listen a few more times you end up liking it.
I think that the animated/comic cut scenes gave it a cheap B-movie feel and that the penance stare not being a visual effect we could see were two big mistakes that if fixed would have made the movie better recieved by general public and fan alike.
I still think the first movie was far better but this movie wasnt as bad as I thought at first.
Lack of budget & a weak script really hurt the movie from being better than it was. I wonder how much of the movies budget the dual director's pocketed that could have been invested into the movie had it only been 1 director?
