-->'''WebVideo/TheRageaholic''': In many ways, the second ''Death Wish'' film is a remake of the first, but with the violence, brooding atmosphere and omnipresent sexual assault cranked UpToEleven. But fret thee not, because by ''Death Wish 3'' we're gonna find a way to crank that violence up to a ''twenty-fuckin'-eight''!

* The original ''Franchies/AloneInTheDark'' is a slow-paced horror story. The sequel has Carnby repeatedly gunning down and being gunned down by gangsters and pirates.

** ''VideoGame/BioShock2'' made the combat system much faster than the [[VideoGame/BioShock1 first game]] by letting the protagonist fire [[DualWielding weapons and special powers at the same time]], turning [[HackingMinigame the cameras and security bots hack into a reflex based minigame]], and gave the player much more powerful abilities to use against much more dangerous enemies. The game still has a few stealth elements inherited from its predecessor but mostly relies on overpowering your enemies instead of getting past them. Despite the game's ContestedSequel status, this aspect was generally considered an improvement over the original. This can also arguably be considered GameplayAndStoryIntegration. Subject Delta, being a Big Daddy, much stronger than Jack Ryan, but his bulk and heavy footsteps makes stealth more difficult.

* ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy'' started more in the realm of an adventure series like Franchise/IndianaJones: exploring tombs, outrunning rival grave robbers, death traps, deciphering ancient mysteries and dealing with angry natives. There was certainly it's own brand of action, but when Rick takes a sword and starts slicing apart mummies like a regular action hero there is a certain dissonance there. The sequels included a lot more extended action sequences, Evie and Jonathan became [[TookAlevelInBadass capable badasses in their own right]], Rick became [[TheChosenOne a destined hero]] and there are entire supernatural armies to face.

* ''Film/JackReacherNeverGoBack'' is this to ''Film/JackReacher''. While ''Jack Reacher'' was still an action movie, it was basically like a thriller with action sequences such as the car chase and the final battle at the quarry, and even those were subjected to {{Deconstruction}} of common action movie trappings and RealityEnsues. ''Never Go Back'' features [[UpToEleven even more shootouts, fights, car chases,]] and [[StuffBlowingUp explosions]], the last of which didn't occur in the first movie.

* ''VideoGame/SplinterCellConviction'' turns up [[GenreShift the action]] and gives Sam Fisher another [[TookALevelInBadass level in badass.]], with rather mixed reactions from the fans.
''Splinter Cell: Blacklist'' downplayed it by making stealth a viable approach again while allowing for the Conviction-style or even regular TPS gameplay - though even on the easier difficulties, trying to play too aggressively will get you killed fast; it's better to play smart, be tactical, and make use of all your gadgets to even the odds in your favour.
