I did not care that much for the first one. I thought it was a "good" movie but it one of those movies you get when a director who wants to be filming serious dramas gets put in charge of making a popcorn blockbuster.
I so much want to like these kinds of movies but I'm sorry I thought the first one sucked. It seemed like a made for TV movie, I didn't see anything serious about it.
The characters are either wooden eye candy if they are the good guys, or ridiculous over the top sleaze balls if they are the bad guys we're suppose to root against. Nothing about how anyone in the movie behaves is realistic. It's like they have a plot line (full of holes) that they have to get through, and the characters just do whatever is required to move it from point A to B to C no matter how ridiculous just to keep the plot moving along.
I'm all in now though, going to get the second one and hope it is better.
