    In reality, none of these sequels after 10+ years are great. A few are good (TMNT, Live Free or Die Hard, Hannibal, and Rocky Balboa), but none are great, and most sucked.

    If I was forced to choose, I'd say Rocky Balboa.

    I liked Rocky Balboa and the Exorcist III was pretty damn good.

    I saw Rambo last night, loved it, and that's the way I voted. I could have very easily gone with Rocky Balboa or Terminator 3, though. I enjoyed all three of those movies and thought they fit in with the others in the franchises.

    On this list I'm currently split over Rocky Balboa, TMNT and Live Free or Die Hard. I think I'm going to say TMNT, although I'll probably regret this later, I personally loved this film and found it to be equally enjoyable for younger and older audiences alike. And after an absolutely horrible sequel,(Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III)... well, not really a sequel but the latest film before this one, this franchise really needed to get back on track and I think CGI is the best way to go.

    Terminator 3 to me kicked the most ass because unlike other 10+ year sequels, it actually closed a story arc instead of just reviving one.

    I picked Superman Returns by default. Rocky Balboa was okay, but it lacked a good opponent for Rocky. LFODH was okay, but it wasn't as good as Die Hard or Die Hard with a Vengeance.

    Voted for SR, at least it had something to look awesome. Rocky 6 was also a very good film, but I thought SR was better.

    Rambo, easily. And i never heard of Indian Jones, only Injun Joe from tom sawyer.

    But anyway you have to look at how hard it is to follow first blood. The film's badass, very well acted, well scored, the works, but here we are with an uncommon kind of sequel that somehow hits all the right notes you'd expect and thensome. What kind of damn effort it must have been to accomplish that I can't imagine...

    Hmm... None of these are any good. For me, probably TMNT, Superman Retutrns, and AvP.

    RAMBO, with Hannibal and ROCKY BALBOA being right behind it.

    TMNT was great too.

    That's a pretty big list of a lot of mostly bad movies. Rarely does it go the other way. The bigest exception to that rule, I would have to say is Live Free or Die hard. I was actually impressed with that movie as a sequel. I'd even say it's the best out of the 3 sequels to follow the original.

    It's funny how all of these 80's action guys are making last attempts at what made them popular initially? Arnold did T3, Bruce did Die hard, and Stallone did Rocky and Rambo late sequels.
