This sequel certainly seems to polarize fans of the original. After seeing it in high school, I personally found the original to be quite unsettling, despite its gore-over-real-scares approach. A decade later, this sequel hit the right notes for me - it felt like a satire about the first film's acclaim (complete with endless one-liners from Mick). This wholly felt like a pitch-black comedy, and it sorta worked.
Horror di qualità che inquieta molto e rende temibile l'outland australiano. Montaggio ottimo e la regia riesce a mantenere alta la tensione e a disturbare lo spettatore.Effetti speciali artigianali e ottimi. La trama non aggiunge molte novità, ma ha alcune sequenze fantastiche e deliranti.Personaggi poco approfonditi, ma il pazzo, vero protagonista, risulta ottimo, folle e razzista, e ha in sè il peggio dell'umanità
Tone-changing sequel that trades in disturbing nihilism for mainstream action-thrills and a lighter tone. McLean is good at creating a narrative that plays on conventions in the first 2/3, akin to Robert Harmon's The Hitcher. Main problems are while a German couple is properly fleshed out, Ryan Corr is a non-dimensional hero and the last act is the terrible, Saw-esque crap the 1st film wisely avoided.
Hands down the worst movie I've seen in ages! I really liked the first one and I cannot fathom how they messed this up. What the director serves up here is a frigging parody of everything the first movie accomplished. Utter trash...
