The first rule of a sequel should be: Do NOT destroy the happy ending of the previous film.

Manages to lack ALL the surprising creativity of the original. It's actually very, very terrible.

Audience Reviews for The Second Arrival

I would rather have just seen a sequel with Charlie Sheen. He did some other movies for HBO so I don't know why they couldn't get him for this. Instead they lamely just say he was killed by aliens and a relative of his character that was never mentioned in the original is in it instead. Just check out the original movie!
