I agree with you. It just seems not as tight. More generic shots that feel like basic coverage than precise framing. And the actors seem to be hamming it up a bit more than in the first one. It kind of reminds me of a 90s direct to video film - okay, not quite that bad, but you get the idea.

I'm still excited and it still looks like a damn good film, but I doubt it'll have nearly the same amount of soul or magic that made the first film one of my favorites.
