Second verse, same as the first? I think
this isn't an entirely fair thing to say, but there's some truth in it. If you liked the first one, you'll like
the second one. My favorite comment from my wife as she's reading the first one is also very apropos:
"It ain't Shakespeare, but it sure does have action."
Guns aplenty, we jump right back on board with Z and all the other
crazies that make up Monster Hunter International and that's not a bad ride. I
can't call it a formula, but it's roughly the same pattern as the last one. I think
the abuse of the hunters and the level of action is beyond what humans have the ability to actually do (and survive), but it's not any different from a
high flying martial arts film that you'd see on a Saturday afternoon. There's
place for that - and I like to visit that place on occasion.
I'm not sure when the next one comes out - and there's just enough
strings dangling to make a connections - but when I need something quick and action oriented, I'll probably come back to the series.
