If it was in the 40's or 50's I might just figure that most of the critics don't understand it or were offended by the level of violence, but 28% is undeniably bad movie territory.
I would say its critical review has been a touch harsh, it IS a comedown from the first, and does have some moments which really do drag it down but not nearly as bad as some have made out I think if it had score of 40-50 it would be fairer. There is some enjoyment here but just not anything like the first but I guess a lot of critics really didnt like the tone of this one or those one or two really bad moments could not be overlooked.
