My initial impression of NA2 is that it follows the plot of NA fairly well. BUT, I found the movie boring. Just couldn't get into the characters at all. I don't think they were well rounded enough to satisfy my opinion of what they ought to be. I had a difficult time maintaining an interest in them.
Or perhaps I'm simply trying to compare a movie too much to a brilliant novel and find it falling short. I don't think this is true because I tried to view the movie with an open mind.
One thing I did like was the imaginary scenes of our heroine and her gothic dreams. On that count I felt the movie was good and it really does deserves some credit for following the plot fairly well for a standard 2-hr. movie.
I've since acquired NA1 but haven't viewed it yet. Perhaps I'll have a better basis for evaluating NA2 after I have something with which to compare it, but for the time being I find NA2 boring and am not certain I'll be viewing it again. At least I didn't throw it in the trash as I did recently with MP2. :)
