An interesting sequel

3 years, 2 months ago at Jan 18 5:53
I really love Chinatown and even though this sequel was not as good, it is still an interesting movie. Jack Nicholson is obviously not as good as Roman Polanski as a director but he was competent enough and his perfomance as an actor was rather impressive. Definitely worth a look.

My Movie Highlights of 1990 (28 movies items)

"LA, 1948, eleven years after the events of the movie "Chinatown": Jack is now the best known private detective of LA and by a new case his past catches up with him. It's not necessary to watch "Chinatown" before but it does help. I liked this movie and its cinematographie very much. But it stays behind the quality of its prequel. I also enjoyed watching the beautiful Medeleine Stowe and Meg Tilly. Jack Nicholson and Harvey Keitel gave a good performance as usual. Fans of "Chinatown" should not "

Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"14.7. Nicholsonin itsensä ohjaama Chinatownin jatko-osa on niin totaalisen turha ja ankean keskinkertainen elokuva kaikin puolin, että aloin jollain tasolla nauttia siitä. Nicholson hukkaa heti hahmonsa, alkaa toistella maneerejaan, ei tee oikeastaan yhtään mitään mielekästä sekä räjähtää, mikä on nähtävä omin silmin, koska en rehellisesti sanottuna uskonut sen tapahtuvan kirjaimellisesti. Räjähdys ei oikeastaan vaikuta mitenkään mihinkään saati sitten murhauhkaukset tai"

Grotesque weirdness... (55 movies items)

"A completely useless sequel for Chinatown where Jack Nicholson does nothing except plays golf with Harvey Keitel and literally explodes. Yeah, he gets his nose cut in Chinatown and suffers from that almost the whole film and in this overlong and idiotic film he explodes - and suffers a lot less from that."

"Ihan kohtuullisen hyvä dekkari, muttei kuitenkaan tuo mitään uutta lajityypiinsä. Kulkee varsin tuttuja latuja. Tosin elokuva on ihan viihdyttävä ja näyttelijätyöskentely toimii hyvin."

"15.10.2009, DVD Ei tää niin huono ollut kuin olis voinut olettaa, meinaan vaan et Polanskin Chinatownhan nyt sattuu olemaan yksi 70-luvun upeimmista elokuvista ja ajatus melkein 20 vuotta myöhemmin väännetystä jatkiksesta herättää ensimmäisenä suurta kauhua ja ihmetystä, edellisen leffan lopetushan ei nimittäin mitään jatkotarinaa olis periaatteessa tarvinnut. Joo, no, kovasti tää yrittää saada kiinni ykkösosan tunnelmaa ja onhan toki sanomattakin selvää et Polanskin tajut"
