Top 10 Movie Sequels that are Better Than the Original

The Top Ten

The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

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

Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Product Image

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

Best Sequel Ever

Terminator 2 - Judgment Day Terminator 2 - Judgment Day Product Image

The first one wasn't even that good, this was the best one by far!

This movie should be first! - WWEarth

The Godfather Part II The Godfather Part II Product Image

It is worse

Aliens Aliens Product Image

Brilliant. One of the best sci-fi films ever.

Batman Returns Batman Returns Product Image

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

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens Product Image

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

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

Before Sunset Before Sunset Product Image
Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man 2 Product Image

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

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Product Image

Lol why is this on here it was originally a book you know

YAS - Blizzard

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Product Image
Shrek 2 Shrek 2 Product Image

You just wanted to meet Fiona's parents.
The first ended like a fairytale and it didn't even need a sequel.

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!

Frozen 2 Frozen 2 Product Image

No doubt about it

Spider-Man: Far From Home Spider-Man: Far From Home Product Image
From Russia With Love From Russia With Love Product Image
Mad Max: Fury Road Mad Max: Fury Road Product Image

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?

Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3 Product Image

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

Captain America: Civil War Captain America: Civil War Product Image

Best movie eeevver
