Some of the same events that occurred in the first book/movie happened in this one as well. The same characters were there and recognized her, but the story seemed to be written like everyone in the audience had no idea what had happened. I understand that a percentage of the film’s viewers haven’t been introduced to the movie/books/story, but things were explained only to a level that made us consider them strange and unrealistic, but then made us wonder why they were only mentioned. The story seemed like it was so dumbed down for the masses. There was an unfilled prophecy aspect to the story that ruined the movie for me. They told her what was going to happen, she denied her own ability, and then it happened. It just became boringly predictable and barely even entertaining.
