I hadn't seen a first run movie in six months when I walked into the theatre in Dar-el-Salaam. I was excited, everyone who had returned to the states raved about this movie. I had genuinely enjoyed the first one, and the second wasn't...bad. Well just like Titanic and Ben Hur, this movie lacked everything but production values. It was pretty that's for sure, but there was no suspense, no acting, no logic to the plot, in fact nothing to engage one as a human being instead of a marketing recipient. Why not just walk during the intermission you may ask? The taxi driver wasn't returning until the end, and I felt honour bound to use the same one. Oh, and the end, it was over, final scene, everything's tied up (cutting out the book's poignant postscript) and then it keeps going.
