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 Ten
1 The Lost World: Jurassic Park The Lost World: Jurassic Park Product Image

I know I have commented on this flick before but I will do it again. This movie is severely underappriecated. It has good action scenes, good effects, a unique soundtrack, dark atmosphere and great moments of tension. It is not without a few flaws but I do not think this movie is as boring or terrible like everyone says it is. That is just my opinion and I think this movie deserves more love and respect rather than people criticizing the characters, the plot and the pacing. If you watched it and had problems with it before, give it another chance.

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.

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.

Masterpiece that was the first will never be! But is an Awesome film and Still the Best Sequel better then Jurassic Park 3, Jurassic World, Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom and Jurassic World 3!

2 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Product Image

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.

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

Humor was just as good as the first movie, and President Trump is in this movie.

Donald Trump cameo aside, this is a good film.

3 Ghostbusters 2 Ghostbusters 2 Product Image

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

4 Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom Product Image

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

In my opinion I do not think this movie deserves to be on this list. It is the worst indy film in the franchise. I actually preferred Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull over this. Please don't kill me.

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
