Describing reiki is like trying to explain the smell of a rose, says one reiki master when asked—and that’s true. Although the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) defines it as a complementary health approach in which practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above a person, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response, experts interviewed for this article agree: The best way to understand reiki is to experience it.

I will be brief: On the one hand, I can appreciate the tongue-in-cheek references to big box-office sequels. We can almost chuckle at how the film beats a dead horse with constant quips about formula plots and increased production budgets…almost. Honestly, I really could have appreciated all the wink-and-a-smile,‘breaking-the-fourth-wall’ references if filmmakers had put an iota of thought into the script. It’s all well and good to joke about how sequels are more expensive, less amusing repeats of the original, but to then go ahead an actually be just that is mind-boggling. It would seem the joke is on us.

Together, one would think there would be very little that could keep them from making a terrific film--unless that one thing is the script.
