After the absolutely amazing first film comes what is my least favourite in the series. The first film may have celebrated an excess of testosterone, but this one seems to just revell in excess. Violence is over the top, characters become caricatures and the future setting is itself a parody. Don't get me wrong, there are certainly some good moments but they're mainly confined to the last half hour. So much of what goes on prior to that is fairly generic, something which the first film never had to worry about.

Another good upgrade. There are upticks in detail, colour handling and contrast. It's still got a bit of a flat look that was so prevalent in a lot of 90's films, but the new scan and HDR really make a huge difference.
Like the first film, there's no change in the audio specs from the Blu-ray. It's a solid track, but it lacks a little of the punch the first film has. Unlike the first which had excellent dynamics, this one is pretty much "go" all the time. It certainly isn't a bad track, it just lacks the refinement and dynamics to make it a great one.
