I blame the directing and script, not Stahl. I'm sure with better directing and writing he would've done fine. It doesn't help that the writing also makes his Connor quite idiotic when he asks the Terminator if he remembers the events of T2 when he should know none of the Terminators are the same and thus wouldn't share memories.

The movie to me just feels like a rehash and bad spoof of T2 that at the last minute tries to be serious. It's also not very entertaining overall to me. Maybe not boring per say but it lacks the wow factor the first two both have that still makes them timeless.

Pretty much. It would be an unnecessary sequel either way, but I feel like Mostow's direction really prevents it from being a solid action film anyway.

Not to mention after T2, what else could be done? There's a reason another sequel didn't happen for so long after T2, not counting the T2 3D attraction at Universal (which is very cool but obviously not canon).

If they had to do a third film, I feel a prequel set during the future war should've been done with the ending leading directly to the events of the first two with Reese and the protector T-800 both being sent to their respective timelines for their duties. From what I read about the original opening sequence planned for T2 that was axed due to budget reasons that could've made for quite an epic film.

It may just be me
No way ! I've seen CoM like 5-6 times vs The Hustler 2x, it's a classic alright but Color of Money is awfully underrated in comparison IMO

Return Of The Living Dead Part II is another I've always been a fan of. The original ROTLD is forever a classic but dare I say it, I prefer the second. Both movies are a ball, though. I like ROTLD3 but it feels so different from the first two.

I just posted in the Unpopular Opinions thread that I thought Blue Brothers 2000 was a great sequel. (Rotten Tomatoes score: 45%.) I saw it in a theatre and loved it. Just bought the Blu-ray and I'm looking forward to enjoying it again.

Recently I discovered the two most recent Universal Soldier films, Regeneration and Day of Reckoning. I had been told that they were the best straight-to-video films ever made. Those people were right; these are two of the best action films I've ever seen. But looking at the critics' scores on RT had me confused: Regeneration was at 34% and Day of Reckoning was at 54%. So I guess they qualify as underrated sequels.

Rocky II is just as good as Rocky. It goes stride for stride with its character development and emotional impact. The ending is just as powerful as well. It's so well done that it looks like it could've been shot side by side with the original. Partly due to its continuation right after the first, which I love. Rocky II doesn't seem to get mentioned as much as Rocky but I feel it should. It's a perfect sequel to a perfect film. I wish I could splice the two together into one long epic.

The training sequence is better in Rocky II (arguably the high point of all the training sequences) and the score by Conti is also perfect. I think before the bombast of the 80's kicked in - mirrored by Stallone's own career upswing - Rocky II was the last of the "grounded" Rocky films until Rocky Balboa, give or take a few moments of suspension of disbelief. The first may be slightly more "worthy" in a sense, a tad nuanced IMO, but the 2nd isn't far behind.

wow ... that's a leap ... I love r2 , but the original script smokes it by a mile and the performances of fairly unknown actors at the time were quite spectacular. I'm sorry ... I respect your opinion , but I just cannot get there in this one. hahaha.

Halloween IV. Very solid slasher flick with a very gloomy atmosphere. Great kills as well.
