So... that's part 2 and it looks like it's going to be a part 3.
I have to admit that although the film is not bad, it does look like an attempt to make some more $$$ by milking the first film.
Most of the problems lie within the story. And here is the main difference with the first film:
In the first film, there was a clear storyline, minor plot holes, novelty and the right amount of tension.
But in this film, you kind of know exactly what is about to happen and that can be be very annoying for this film genre.
For example, the tropes used in this film, are all the classics.
They were used in the 1st film too, but at least then they were timed and deployed much better, so a sense of unpredictability was evident and that was the fun part.
Further, the motives of the protagonists are many times unjustified and are there only just to push the story forward.
So the story ends up with many flaws, which rather disappoint mostly because of the predictability and the cliches that we all hoped to avoid in this 2nd installment.
I would want to mention a few which I m sure everyone noticed but better not to spoil it. You will know once you see...
Also...it's not as quiet as the first film. Sound editing is great also in this one, but maybe there were more speech moments than needed.
Overall, the good parts: tension is there, cinematography is beautiful once again and we get to see some good acting.
For the ones that liked the first film, yes you should watch this one too but don't expect something amazing.
I do hope that there's a part 3 and I hope they improve the story.
