My Review:

It may become this generation Indiana Jones. It has that same type of story. It was good. I loved the comic relief character Riley Poole just as funny as the first. The second seem more over the top than the first. The first one focused on learning history while at the same time incorporating fiction. This one runs with historical legends, fiction and non-fiction. I say watch it but other may disagree.
