It is true that the phrase “Sequels were never good” applies to some movies, but we must be honest and accept that there are tapes that are far better than the first.
Whether because of the plot, because they perfected details of the first ones or because they included new characters that made these sequels unforgettable, here are five movies that far surpassed their predecessor.
1. Shrek 2
In 2001 we met the greenest and most friendly ogre that could conquer us. The tape moved us so much with each of its characters that we wanted to see more and DreamWorks consented us by giving us the second part of this movie. In 2004, Shrek 2 Not only did it keep the magic of the original alive, experts also say it was the best installment in the franchise. This sequel became a true cultural giant and the highest grossing film of 2004. In fact, it held the title of the highest grossing animated film in history in the United States for more than ten years.
two. Crazy Addams II
The sequel to crazy addams It took the first one a step further in that it’s not only an improvement in every way, it also manages to make the whole family more lovable while perfecting the wacky dark humor without being too bleak.
3. the knight of the night
We don’t think we should explain why it’s on the list, but, yes, the knight of the night It is much better than Batman starts and that what we are fans of the superhero. The truth is, we all know that there is only one reason this movie remains a cultural landmark: Heath Ledger as the Joker. His performance makes him so unforgettable that almost 15 years later, no other villain has come close to what the actor achieved in this film.
Four. Spider-Man 2
Although the first film in the Sam Raimi trilogy was groundbreaking, the second is the most impressive and is universally regarded as the best. In this sequel we see Peter Parker, played by Tobey Maguire, struggle with the great responsibility that comes with his great power. This seems touching as he just wants to lead a normal life. Also, Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, is one of the best spider-hero supervillains.
5. Top Gun: Maverick
The original 1986 film is undoubtedly well loved and although its fans were skeptical about updating this text 40 years later, fortunately, Maverick is still flying with pride, as the sequel seems like a tribute as an improvement on itself. Surely when they see it, they will realize that it is a more coherent film and that it is very well done.
