Characters: The protagonist is absolutely awful, but the others make up for him. B
Dialog: Again with the protagonist being awful; he never shuts up. C
Special effects/design: B
Acting: Have I mentioned that the protagonist is awful? Listening to his voice makes me want to tear my ears off. I don't remember him being that bad in the first movie. C
Enjoyment: There is some pretty cool Miyazaki-ish fantasy going on. And a surprisingly touching story between the Cate Blanchett and Gerard Butler characters. B
