Yates has gotten far better with his actors, their performance has improved remarkably!!! (even though Emma Watson still, sometimes, looks like she's in pain or something ... what's up with that!?!?) But the action scenes are occasionally dodgy. The opening air attack isn't as coherent as it ought to be, and a climactic forest chase is edited to shreds. Not a deal-breaker, yet, but he'd better not mess up the final battle in the next flick.
