|Power Hug!||[Star Cinema]|
The talk was that the sequel was going to come out in February as a Valentines movie, but then when the only movie that came out around that time was the other follow up of sorts (same pair, different producer) movie, I was losing hope. I didn't hear any publicity about it but there was talk that it would happen.
Finally about two weeks before I caught the movie, I finally heard SOMETHING about the movie. It was a sequel and because the trailers didn't give away anything, I didn't know what the hell to expect. Especially when I found out that the production wasn't really given a lot of time, I got really worried.
So when I finally watched it (alone at that) in Rockwell last Sunday, I wasn't expecting to be blown away. And well, that's a good thing, because I was pleasantly surprised at how the movie did a pretty good follow up considering the many different things going against it (not as rabid publicity, the fact that it's a sequel, the limited production time).
I Still Loved the Second Time Around

Verdict: Though it wasn't as great as the first, it was a pretty good follow up. The shots weren't as beautiful or breathtaking. I wasn't in awe at the camera work anymore, but it's all good. This is the story of what happens after 'happily ever after' and I thought they did a good portrayal of it. Sure, it had it's annoying moments (namely: Sarah's excessive Hello Bebe Ko shrieks) but the rest of it was pretty fab. Sarah and John Lloyd's chemistry is undeniable and I would pay to see them together again, hopefully though with a different plot already.
