Top 10 Best Movie Sequels

Sometimes one movie isn't enough to tell the whole story. Enter the movie sequel. Here are the movies that did the very best job of adding another chapter to their respective movie series.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

A darker tone and more fleshed out plot and characters make this probably the best Star Wars film. - Jackamalio

Even though it isn't my favorite sequel a lot of people think it's the best, so that's why I put it here.

This entire list is just perfect - MojoSpaederman

The best movie of the franchise. - HoldenFanatic

2 Terminator 2 - Judgment Day

I haven't seen this movie yet or even the first one, but I'm excited to see them, and I here this one is the best of the Terminator franchise.

Come with me if you want to live. - Cyri

Best movie ever made

Who Else Could have been nr. 1?

3 Aliens

Aliens is an epic sequel - maybe even better than original. Great story, well developed characters, cool action moments, cool acting - Alexandr

Your more likley to die from flying Alien blood than actual Aliens... awesome movie, not a hard choice

4 The Dark Knight

Second movie in the Dark Knight trilogy, and in my opinion is easily the best of the three. - Metarock

The dark is such an amazing movie guys... Joker is outstanding - "WHY SO SERIOUS! " haha... And that great dialogue - " Either you die a hero, or you see urself become a villain. "

5 Toy Story 2

Best animated sequel of all time. Best in the franchise in my opinion. - Yankees2003

I have never seen a single sequel that I thought was even better than the original like this!

It's one of my favorite Disney movies. It was creative, strong and atmospheric.

most sequels are annoying but not toy story 2

6 The Godfather, Part II

Godfather, Part II is undoubtedly the greatest movie sequel in history.

Um, how is this not at the top of the list?

As if it all happened.

7 Toy Story 3

I love this movie, although I still think Toy Story 2 is better.

8 Spider-Man 2

This and Empire Strikes Back. I can't decide but this one was further down.

9 Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

To be honest, Empire and T2 really are the two best, but I wanted to give some love to my favourite of the LOTR trilogy. - truckturner

10 Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

I think this is the greatest and most epic movie ever made. - DesL42

This, part 1, 2, The dark Knight, and Captain America Civil War are all some of the 10 best movies of all time.

Best movie ever. - TheArrowPerson

The Contenders

11 Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

This is my favourite star wars film and film in general, this movie is a staisfying conclsuion to the epic and legendary star wars saga. Seriously 's who doesn't love the final confrontaion in this movie? Its just so damn epic and emotional.!

12 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
13 War for the Planet of the Apes

Absolutely fantastic - PeeledBanana

14 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
15 Transformers: Dark of the Moon
16 Captain America: The Winter Soldier
17 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Awesome way to end the prequels.

18 Shrek 2

This film just seems like a regular animated sequel, but once you watch it over and over, you will see more and more layers of symbolism, artistic details and deep thought, especially with dialogue revolving around King Harold. The original Shrek (2001) was fantastic, and this sequel expands the universe and add new, brilliant characters who weave into the story very well, instead of feeling forced. Also, the "Holding out for a hero" scene was made as if God decided to work for Dreamworks for a day to help with the movie. Purely fantastic. It's a shame that the third movie couldn't live up to the pure majesty of the first two incredible films.

This needs the be in the top ten or five!

19 Captain America: Civil War

This is a near perfect marvel movie and my favorite film of all time. It has great acting, characters, action, story, and even a decent villain. And do I even need to mention the fact it has the BEST VERSION OF SPIDERMAN EVER?! I think I've made my point.

How is it not on the list? - Triceratops

20 Back to the Future Part III
21 Mad Max: Fury Road
22 The Dark Knight Rises

I liked The Dark Kinght way better but I still really liked this one

23 Jurassic World
24 Finding Dory

I like the original a lot better, but this is still good my God!

Actually, I didn't like the sequels to the matrix. They messed up everything and overloaded the film with fight scenes. I can watch the first film a million times and never get tired, but I fell asleep watching this one and I was less than a quarter way through the film. - BoltMarksman
