Just thought I'd throw this quick review out there for anyone who's sitting on the fence. Go see it. Speaking as someone who is very cynical about modern movies I came out of the theatre feeling very happy I chose to see this movie on the big screen. While the story itself did not 'need' to be told I was very happy with it, it added on nicely to the original without taking anything away from the first film. The visuals we fantastic and the world was well realised. No spoilers, but do not judge this movie by the trailers it is not a mindless Hollywood shoot 'em up action film made for the mindless masses with no attention span. Running time came in at just under 3 hours but I was never bored or fidgity. The narrative was well paced and held my interest for the whole time. In fact the Mrs and our son enjoyed it as well and it's rare that we all agree on a movies worth. Even Ryan Gosling did a good job and I usually find him a bit annoying for some reason.
