Top 10 Movie Sequels Better Than the First Movie


The Top TenXW

1Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

The Dark Knight was a classic sequel, yes, but The Empire Strikes Back was the original movie to be a better movie than its already great predecessor. - SevenTreeTool

2Shrek 2

Shrek 2, though is overall my favourite Shrek movie out of the 4.

They followed up one of the most unlikely successes with a plot which even thinking of it would make you think "oh, this will be good." And you'd be right.

I have always loved this one more than the first! It is more funny and the plot line is more touching than the first one!

3The Dark Knight

None of the other movies on the list are up to par with the Dark Knight

Arguably the best vote on the list - Mcgillacuddy

This is the BEST in this list. Specially the acting of Heath Ledger as a Joker is very remarkable. it'll be a classic movie for the future. - johnalekseicanon

4Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is not true, the first movie was better.

It's an amazing movie, but it doesn't compare to ANY of the originals. - LarkwingFlight

I think it was a good comeback from the prequels. I loved it all.

I prefer the first one, but it's Still good - Martinglez

7Batman Returns

I agree completely. This one is seldom spoken about as being a superior film to the 1989 original, so I am very happy to see it here. - BKAllmighty

9Mad Max: Fury Road

It's quite possibly better than the second film, also. It easily outshines the third, of course. - BKAllmighty

I hear this was one of if not the best movie that came out in 2015 so...yes?

11Lion King 1 1/2
12My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks
13Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

I totally agree. The comedy and the animation was good as always and the movie ended with a spectacular big bang. Definitely one of my favorite movie sequels of all time along with Toy Story 3. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15Spider-Man 2

So far we haven't seen a better Spider-Man film since this one. Here's hoping 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' does the trick. - BKAllmighty

16Iron Man 3

This one I cannot say I agree with. The original 2008 film stands as the best. - BKAllmighty
