These successful movie sequences, which were not only about making money

Cinema 20 February, 2017

We are not fooled, most of the time, it’s a carrot and you’re disappointed. Sometimes, however, the sequel was even better than the first film of the saga. Examples.
Too good, too con. It’s always the same, when you like something, you leave the benefit of the doubt, you are naive, you trust, even when it stinks. We will not mention here all the “sequel” misses, the suites without tail or head, clearly produced to continue to collect money. Let us concentrate on the positive, on those that have surprises us and regaled us .
Mad Max 2
The first opus had tape everyone in 1979, by its universe, its violence, its central character … And two years later, the suite did even better. Benefiting from a bigger budget , “The Road Warrior” (the original title) struck even harder. Both literally and figuratively! And Mel Gibson was propelled to the rank of star.
The Dark Knight
The second film in the Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan remains a massacre. Both in critical and commercial terms. In 2008, it became the fifth film to cross the $ 1 billion mark in revenue. We all remember the crazy performance of Heath Ledger in Joker , one of the most successful villains in history, more true than life.
Shrek 2
Honors to animated films too, why not? Besides the jokes and the funky atmosphere of the first, we see here the ass and Shrek tweak their duo , as well as huge scenes like infiltration in James Bond mode …
Terminator 2: The Last Judgment
Between 1985 and 1991, James Cameron took the time. And it was worth it! Six years after an already considerable success, the director returns us Schwarzy in the past in order to protect John Connor . From whom? From the highly motivated T-1000, with whom the chase and face-to-face racing will multiply and get tougher. Until the end, you do not breathe.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
The thing is heard, it is the best film of the saga. The twist you take in this film, the emotions lived, the crazy scenes, two hours of which you come out washed . So, the best Star Wars obviously includes the “list” of the best movies in history. Just that.
Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier
We reward here mainly the enormous difference between the 1 (First Avenger) and this suite, much more worked and effective. In the first, there was the impression that the producers wanted to introduce Steve Rogers before the Avengers. This second film succeeds the feat of going out of the frame of the banal superhero film centered around special effects and choreographed stunts to instill a rhythm and a spy thriller plot. Which one did you prefer among these films?
