This is where the series goes off the rails (and probably why I’ve never seen another NOES sequel since). NOES 2-4 do something fun within the same formula whereas this movie tries a different approach that just doesn’t work within the rules established in prior films. It’s not completely without merit but also makes the previous films look much better.
