    It held its interest at the time. Now, it just feels like a film that’s trying to hard to recapture the first film while also unsuccessfully pressing what it can do with its effects. It also bears the mark of a film that, in a few spots, they tried a little too hard to save this in the edit.

    A tight, toned story, character expressed in interesting ways, and constant special effect interest and invention — just a wonderful summer film.

    The worth and emotional impact of the interviews in this movie are unquestionable, and having them recorded is a great service. The rest of this movie is sloppy and lacking of insight. Making a documentary on North Korea, the most reclusive state in the world, is no small task, but an aimless structure and nonexistent visual style don't help this.
