Antagony & Ecstasy

Nowhere near as good as the first, and lacks the traces of true stupidity that make the latter two fun bad movies.

Delivers [Nearly] as much as the first

Roy Scheider is the only redeeming quality of this sequel.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

The first of three crummy sequels unworthy of the original.

I actually enjoyed this sequel a lot. It was missing the great chemistry of Brody and Hooper but Scheider manages to carry the movie just fine on his own. I… More
