I found myself really getting into this movie as it went along.
I haven't seen the first Animal, but the movie was about a father who goes to jail, and fights people (fights for his LIFE, in fact) because a dishonest "religious" man forces him to. I never could tell if the guy was seriously religious or just pretending to be. This guys performance, while exaggerated a bit, was pretty entertaining.
The movie centers around the fathers kids, and well, I won't spoil anything, but the storyline progresses into some pretty interesting directions that I honestly didn't see coming until about halfway through. His kids play a big part that involves a pretty crazy story.
I can honestly say this is a pretty good movie that starts out a little slow and predictable, but develops into a more interesting storyline slowly and carefully.
