Well done and acted. The entities (while based on cliché visual tropes) were memorable and effective, as was the haunting atmosphere. Definitely entertaining.
Not quite as effective as the film's predecessor. Far too much misplaced and forced sentimentality competing with an otherwise oppressively loud and frightening tone. Had some pacing issues, attributed to a need to have many climaxes throughout the runtime, which felt rather jarring. The use of many jumpscares also cheapened the experience a bit, as they become too regular of an occurrence. Also, and this is a nitpick, but using the Clash's "London Calling" as a scene setter to tell the viewer that it indeed took place in England was rather amateurish.
Overall, still decent, and certainly better than the majority of the garbage that comes out in the genre in a given year, but rather disappointing, considering how effective and how much of a good surprise the first film in the series was.
