Most Underrated Movie Sequels

This list compiles the movie sequels (whether they are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 36th film in a series) that deserve more credit than they are given.

The Top TenXW

1The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Just finished watching it for the umpteenth time and it's just as dark, powerful, energetic, action-packed, and fun as ever. Still my favourite entry in the 22-year-old franchise. Severely underrated. Of course, I can understand why the original 1993 film is considered to be the best (just consider how revolutionary it was - for one thing), but nothing can convince me that 'The Lost World' isn't the most fun Dinosaur movie ever made. - BKAllmighty

I do agree that this is one massively underrated sequel, by far the best Jurassic park sequel and that scene with the 2 dinosaurs and the caravan tipping over the bridge was awesomely intense. - idontknow

2Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

...although Donald Trump's cameo ruined it for me when I watched it for the millionth time.

It should mean something, the fact that this movie gets me in the mood for Christmas at any time of the year. The original 'Home Alone' cannot do that. Plus, I love NY with a passion. - BKAllmighty

3Ghostbusters 2

Just a stupid retread of the much better and funnier first flim

Really, bud? You couldn't go to the "Worst Movie Sequels" list to make this comment? This list is here for people to express their positive feelings, thank you very much. - BKAllmighty

4Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom

I understand why a lot of people (like my father) were a little disenchanted with the film after it deviated so greatly from the tone of 'Raiders' (which is about as perfect as an action/adventure movie can get), especially with all the slimy, occult-themed, bugs and monkey brains-filled craziness. But that doesn't mean that just because it's different that it has to a "bad" kind of different. There's a lot of wild, wacky, and wonderfully campy stuff to appreciate this time around, and it's entertaining as hell. - BKAllmighty

I agree,while it was not as good as Raiders, I loved this film- at least it's better than the...You know what, there is only 3 Indiana Films - idontknow
