An interesting sequel

4 years, 6 months ago at Jan 18 11:53
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.

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

"From.... (Chinatown 1974) To... (The Two Jakes 1990) Gap between movies : 16 years Was it worth the wait ? : Yes. Even if the sequel was not as good as the original it was still pretty nice to see Mr Gittes again. Source: "I can't wait for the sequel!!!" Actually..."

"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"
