    This was quite the rage back in '81 when I was a young cineaste at university. The Italians were "killing it" with these genre films back in the day. In 2013, there was a lot of "laughing out loud".

    Well. The sequel thing with any successful original film is always a thorny path to traverse. This film has just an amazing, spectacular look throughout. The screenplay goes awry in the middle act then recovers nicely through the finale. I really enjoyed this movie, more as I was reflecting on it than during the actual screening
