Top Ten Underrated Sequels Better Than Their Predecessor

The Movie sequels were underrated. But they were better than the previouse one.

The Top TenXW

1The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

This is my favrout movie of all time. Its way better than the original (original still amazing). This is definitely underrated and the best film. - idontknow

A sequel that's just as good as the first. All of the people who think that it's awful need to shut the heck up.they always have to complain about's a great sequel period.

2Toy Story 3

Uh, I really wouldn't say this is "underrated." Still a fantastic film. - DrewtheGamer98

One of the best prision escape IN HISTORY. Also better than the 1st 2. - idontknow

3Batman Returns

Catwoman, Penguin This is one great film. - idontknow

4Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom

Worst one in the franchise. Worse even than the one everyone hates. - PositronWildhawk

5Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Not as good as the first, but the best we can expect from a sequel. And better than the second by far. - PositronWildhawk

8Men In Black 3

A very good movie, but the most plot holed film in the franchise. - PositronWildhawk

9How To Train Your Dragon 2
10Thor: The Dark World

AMAZING. Better than the original thor - idontknow

The Contenders

11Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

My favorite part of the movie was when Obi Wan Kenobi fought General Grievous and then shot his stomach and then he blew up.

Why do people think Empire is the best star wars movie. It's good but I think this one is better.

12Star Trek VIII: First Contact

To this day it remains not only the very best of the Star Trek movies but the absolute pinnacle of all things Trek!

13My Summer Story

One particular whipping-boy here seems to be A Christmas Story 2, and I'm not here to dispute that choice. (after all, any movie that goes directly to dvd without a theatrical release can't be ALL GOOD. )
What's especially perverse about this is that there already was a sequel. My Summer Story (aka It Runs In The Family) concerns Ralphie's adventures the following summer. it took a decade so it's a whole new cast - Kieran Culkin as Ralphie, Charles Gorden and Mary Steenburgen as his parents - but it is nonetheless a much worthier follow-up and a textbook case of a "lost" film that should've gotten a chance.
It's worth seeing if only because Bob Clark and Jean Shepherd are still at the helm.

14Muppets Most Wanted
15Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

My favorite part was the final lightsaber duel with Count Dooku Yoda
Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi it was also nice to see Yoda kick some ass

16Jurassic World
17Wes Craven's New Nightmare
18Insidious: Chapter 2
19Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
