The second part of Along With the Gods is even better than the first.
Even though lots of things are happening the movie manages to give every aspects enough room and time to manifest in front of our eyes. The story cast light on the guardians and doesn't waste time on things that were already established in the first movie.
All the cast are skilled in their craft and manage to conveye the emotiongs to the audience. Their acting works both in the funny and sad moments of the movie.
The production value, the costumes and the sets are fitting and the CGI is great in creating the fantasy world. While I was at parts overwhelmed by some stylistic choices and the fast pace in the first movie, here I truly enjoyed them.
While I truly enjoyed the story and also the superb acting that made those character come to life, I wonder how this movie appears to people who haven't seen the first installment. Therefore my overall rating is 9.5.

The only reason why I have not rated this a solid 10 is because of its predecessor. Everybody knows that second installament doesn’t always give you the same punch in the gut making you think “wow, I’m alittle speechless right now”. But I’m glad to report it was a great film nonetheless.

In this instalment you will learn all about the guardians and where they came from. They tied everything in perfectly and the visuals were just as great as the first. Acting was superb and like the first one you will laugh and cry sometimes simultaneously.

A must watch and would rewatch without a second thought.

Sequels sure have a tough job ahead of them, following the success of a blockbuster hit. In this case, AWTG2 may have come up short in a few aspects, but it sure captured the spirit and the heart of the first movie.

Guiding another paragon, Kim Su Hong into the afterlife is just a side story here. It's about the much awaited back story of our 3 grim reapers, and it didn't disappoint. Didn't disappoint to tug at my heartstrings, that is.

Honestly before that last third of the movie, I thought ok this is still a good fun fantasy movie, but it doesn't quite capture the wonder of that first movie, the magic of going into this world as a newbie, meeting all these grim reapers, unforgiving gods, and lost souls.

To be frank, Kim Su Hong is quite annoying, and probably one of the last people you want to be rooting for. While the other part of the movie, was about 3 powerful beings figuring out how to get a mortal kid adopted, and Jurassic Park dinosaurs?

Before I realize it, the movie got to me, so be prepared to have the Kleenex ready. I love how the tale of our reapers tackles war, compassion, race, acceptance, repentance, and forgiveness. All in all, I adore this series (awesome acting and great cameos) , and I can't wait for more!

The second movie of the Along with the Gods series was entertaining, but not as good as the first one. Whethere the first one was backed with emotions and twists, this one was just a good movie about two things, the trial of the last movie's lead's brother and the past of the three grim reapers massed up in the story of a young boy and his grand father. The story about the boy and the background story on the three main characters were interesting and kind of sad. The trial part, however, failed to impress. And when all the stories came together, it was a quick and awkward mass up, concluding everything so we could move on to the next chapter about the othe soldier, whose story will be presented in the third movie. I just hope that the last one will be the best one.
Other than that, the performances were really well by all the actors in the film and they actually looked natural. The special effects in addition, were decent and enjoyable.
So, 7.5 out of 10, because it was a good movie, but it could have been better.

About this

Very soulful history. Actor play the main characters is at a high level. The entire series empathized with the main character. One of my favorite projects. There are plans to revise. In the breaks of the game at the https://casinoscroll.com/ , I watched most of the episodes. I recommend to all fans of the genre! If someone can, advise such works. In general, the cinema of the Middle Kingdom stands out for its charm...........
Now with my husband we are in search of a new film.................. After viewing this work, there remains a sweet aftertaste, the main character, like the heroine, is very sympathetic to me.

First off, I loved the first part to the core. It was action-packed, emotional and magical.

This happens with LAST 49 DAYS also. It has a lot of action, drama, some comedy and twists presented in a screenplay that is thoroughly engaging and will keep you hooked to the end despite of long duration.

The guardians are all excellent as before, but this time their characters have been explored so well that no glitches matter after a point of time. Ha Jung-woo excels in the film with his strong expressions and dialogue delivery. Surprisingly enough, Ju Ji-hoon takes the cake for an astonishing performance, while Kim Hyang-gi still delivers a cute performance. Ma Dong-seok is a worthy addition to the cast and you'll love his character. Lee Jung-jae is brilliant as he was in the first one. Kim Dong-wook is superb.

The action sequences are once again breathtaking but this time the director has kept them more grounded. From chases to superhero-esque fights to sword fights etc: every action block clicks. The director has used action sequences in a very interesting way, making them an integral part of the story while not losing grip on the characters or story. Visual effects are still dazzling but the focus seems more on story than CGI so it's a little less glossy than the prequel.

The emotional depth of the characters makes them extremely likable. Perhaps this is another thing which makes this fantasy action sequel a bit better than the THE TWO WORLDS, even though the prequel has an upper hand in terms of pacing, action choreography and visual spectacle.

10/10

Just like the first installment, this movie will not disappoint you at all. It has a soulful history. Each of their stories is blended with morals and sadness that will capture your spirit of empathy. The tales about wars, repentance, and forgiveness were perfectly combined in a setting of fantasy, but the emotions are conveyed to the audience perfectly.

Hands up to the cast. They are flawlessly skilled in their own craft. They manage again to portray their characters. The visuals have been just as great as the first movie, obviously, the production is at a high level along with the customs and sceneries.

There is no boredom moment while watching this movie, you must definitely watch it.
