Honestly, I don't think it was that bad. Ok, now you're thinking I'm crazy but let me put some context around this statement... This flick is notoriously one of the worst sequels ever made so, beforehand, I thought it would be just awfull and since my expectations were so low, this flick had actually a shot to positevely surprise me. Does it make any sense? Anyway, of course, it is pretty average and it remains a disappointing sequel. First of all, it is obviously pretty funny that they decided to make an action flick around a huge boat which is not really a fast vehicle at all. Keanu Reeves knew that this was a stinker going nowhere so he wisely staid away of it and it was a terrible blow for Jason Patric and Jan de Bont whose careers never really recovered from this disaster. Still, I thought the whole thing was midly entertaining. I mean, Jan de Bont is a decent action movie director, Willem Dafoe is always a badass bad guy and there were some entertaining sequences and I think the original opinion is a little too harsh. Of course, it is pretty average but the genre doesn't require anything mind-blowing (As a matter of fact, Roger Ebert surprisingly gave it a 3 stars review). To conclude, it is not that bad but it is still pretty average and, eventually, not really worth a look.
