17 Times Movie Sequels Were Even Better Than The Original Film

By  | 

There's nothing quite as painful as watching a really bad sequel to a beloved classic. They often turn out to be either a lazy carbon copy of the first film or a complete disaster that barely resembles the original concept. And unfortunately, in the past few years, we've seen a lot of failed attempts at good remakes, including The Hangover 2 and Son of the Mask. This trend has convinced a lot of people that maybe certain classics ought not to be touched…

But then came the remakes that actually lived up to the original movies and, even better, actually outdid them. It just goes to show that, when done the right way, movie sequels really can exceed our expectations.
