The picture in this link captures everything you're talking about. Somebody post this picture from this link as it's late and I just got back from watching it. Count how many errors there are in that picture.

Do you need to see the first one? I want to see this with the wife but she hasn't seen the first movie.

Action sequences were good but the plot made even less sense than the first one.

I saw Part 2 the other day without having seen the first one. I watched the first one today and there really wasn't anything in the first one that would preclude anyone from understanding everything about Part 2.

There is a little bit of background that you'd pick up about Alejandro in the first one as well as some of the backstory of how Alejandro and Graver are tied together, but seeing Part 2 without seeing the first one is not a problem.

I liked them both even though I watched them "out of order" per se.....

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Pretty good but nowhere near as tight storytelling as the first. I liked Blunt's character in the first one. FBI are nothing compared with what the CIA gets away with, plus, cartels are on a higher plane of violence...

Also, its nearly impossible to tell... was this a prequel or a sequel? I thought prequel because of how it shows Brolin in ME and then being introduced to the Mexican theater. So if its a prequel, obviously Alejandro's fate is not really in question.
