With no context to lend it any sense of drama, it's reduced to the narrative level ...

I think the first movie worked well because it felt like a personal fight between two fighters in a distinctly impersonal battlefield. This movie introduces more complications, including a cult that feels half-baked and only gets some explication in ...
