I think this one is much better than the first.
Better animation, the story is more focused, better characters, better slapstick (better comedy overall) and better action.

Granted, it might be a little less "poetic" than the first one but it's equally beautiful and the score by James Horner is still amazing (if not even better ?)

Although it is globally a comedy there is a lot of melancholy in here and I liked that. Original tone, themes and great characters.

What a shitty poster though!
It makes the film looks like a "Snatch wannabe" but it's really something else!

A corny "Kevin Costner-porn" for old women, a giant soap opera way too long and way too cheesy directed by a totally uninspired Sam Raimi.

Fresh, cute but a little too dumb.

Incredibly underrated indeed !
Why did I never heard of this movie before ? It's a gem ! (and not in any official list ?! Seriously ??!)

Of course it's a minimalist "little" movie by its nature but it's incredibly written, directed and played ! The subject is quite deep and complex and more than ever relevant these days !
This movie REALLY needs to be rediscovered !

"What an unexpected twist !"
You litterally see the ingeneers controlling the whole thing in the first few minutes of the film lol

However it's a pretty fun and "clever" movie to watch but as I'm concerned I think it lacks the intensity of a real inspired directing and writing to make it something really good.
It's ok and original though.

Surprisingly a very introspective movie but a great one with precious subjects in it.
A slow burn that needs a few time to grow on you.

One of the most overrated movie I've ever seen. I simply hate it.

It pretends to be about "a separation" but it is mostly about living with a alzheimer parent at home and finding out if the maid has been pushed in the stairs or not.

It is very melodramatic with a very "grey" and uninspired filming, and in the end everything is resolved by spoiler (and there's nothing racist in me saying that, it's just too much of a cop-out plotwise)

I hate it.

Come on ! It's pretty bad and schlocky, yes.
But "worst movie ever" ? Really ??!

What about the horrendous Highlander 3 and (most of all) 4 then ? =)

Superb directing by Bertolucci, amazing story, complex characters, powerful commentary about the absurdities in politics and power, wonderful soundtrack and all you guys are talking about are the english dialogues ?! Seriously ??!!!!

Imagine Lost In Translation but removes the spontaneous humour from Bill Murray, the shy sensuality of Scarlet Johansson, the romantic tension between the two and the exotic experience of living in a 5 stars hotel in Tokyo and you get... Somewhere.
An interesting but clearly weaker movie.

Yes it's a complete ripoff of Yojimbo but discoreving these two back to back I must say that "Fistful of Dollars" is superior in a lot of way ! Faster pacing, spectacular directing, beautiful soundtrack, improved plot (yes it is !)
Yojimbo is still very good though !
