Ultimate Avengers 2: Rise of the Panther

First off, Marvel needs a new movie-naming team. To recycle movie title phrasings within the same year is pretty bad.

This movie picks up in the aftermath of the first movie. While the bad guys were defeated, there were prices to pay. Intercut this with the introduction of a small African nation and our newest hero, Black Panther. We also see the aliens from the first movie, meaning that our heroes were not entirely successful. From here our story takes off.

Again, I was pleased with the animation and storytelling, even if it did seem like parts of “Independence Day” and “War of the Worlds” had invaded the story. In watching this one and its predecessor, it felt like I was watching the comic book. The widescreen aspect and the 5.1 sound mix again adds to the movie.

DVD features include a feature on the Ultimates, a funny gag reel, and first looks at the next two animated projects (Iron Man and Dr. Strange).

My advice: Well if you listened to me on number one, then you will be happy with this sequel.
