The 10 best movie sequels ever!

Updated on June 27, 2014

A great box set!

The attack of the sequels!

All movie buffs know that most sequels fall short and do not do justice to the original, right? I often see it that way but, I also like a lot of those I have seen. Here are the ones that I thought knocked it out of the park... again.

Which ones almost made it?

Star Trek 2, The Bride of Frank..., and All Saints Day.

The four pack of action!

A unique look at a great movie classic !

More collections!

A horse and an offer ...

An epic showdown. But does the younger one know what it is over?

Part 2 is good too!

12. Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman-(1943) Though this was bashed by the critics, it was a great black and white classic! Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi were perfect together.

11.Superman 2- The addition of General Zod and his friends brought terror and drama to the series. The original cast teamed up perfectly with Terrance Stamp and Sarah Douglass when an intergalactic grudge is settled on Earth. Will Earth survive?

10. T2- One of Arnold's best performances! Loaded with action and surprises, T2 has become a classic in its genre. NOTE: Val Kilmer was supposed to play the liquid steele Terminator but was bounced. Arnold said he would back out if Val was in. Then Val did the same with Batman and Robin. Both times Arnold won the battle.

9. Beverly Hills Cop 2- This was even funnier than the first. Axl and friends were back to take down a deadly gang of criminals.

8. Psycho 2- This was loaded with surprises and a ending that no one could forget. The acting, suspense, and all of the twists and turns made me watch this about 20 times! Part 3 and 4 were awful, but I thought part 2 stayed with the best!

7. Dirty Harry (Magnum Force)- Harry comes back and kept the audience wanting more and more.

6. Rocky 2- Rocky and Appollo get back in the ring for another bout. This time, the fight is personal, and the outcome may be different.

5. Aliens- The Xenomorph comes back and a team of U.S. Marines respond. Ripley goes with them to see that the monstrous race is wiped out. There is evil and destruction everywhere, but which race has to claim the worse villains?

4. Leathal Weapon 2- Roger and Riggs team up again to take down a group of drug lords that have diplomatic immunity. Will Riggs come apart, or will the immunity get revoked? Joe Pesci was great!

3. The God Father 2- A horse's head, a family, and a new era in crime.

The top two may surprise you.

2. The Dark Knight- Batman Begins- Heath Ledger lead the way and stole the show. The Dark One is up against 2 or maybe 3 villians. It took all he had to survive.

This may surprise some, but think about how much more likable the characters were when we got to know them better. Both droids, Han, Lea, and Luke had matured in personality so much! Besides who can deny the famous twist and the introduction of Yoda? No way this writer can.

1. The Empire Strikes Back- Star Wars

      Though I may not agree with all your choices, you have certainly chosen a novel subject and proven your point very well. I would definitely agree with Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman! They really new how to make movies back then.

      Voted up.

      The Dark Knight is one of my favorite movies and definitely a great sequel! Heath Ledger was amazing as The Joker! I wish he was still around so we could continue to watch his growth as an actor. Great list : )

      It was very hard to leave Star Trek 2 and the Bride off! They almost made it. I thought that Psycho 2 was brilliant even though 3 and 4 were awful. Thanks as always Rob!

      A lot of good sequels here. "Godfather 2" and "Empire Strikes Back" are iconic. I might have listed "Bride of Frankenstein" instead of "Frankenstein meets the Wolfman", and I also might have added "Star Trek 2: the wrath of Kahn". Nice List. The only one I don't agree with here is "Psycho 2".

      Not sure why Arnold did that. I have heard that Val is strange and hard to work with.

      Love Dirty Harry and Beverly Hills Cop.

      I wonder what Arnold had against Val?
