Excerpt: This movie is no way better than the 1st one, the 1st one is a lot better than this one (the movie is just like this sentence, silly). Overall this is a boring movie with boring dialog, if you have time, do not watch this.
Excerpt: Although I was never a fan of the first "Hatchet," a movie that let down expectations due to unworthy fanboy buzz, I had no problem giving the sequel a shot. I love horror sequels. Compared to the original; I heard it was a bit less humous (+1 because the humor in the original fell flat), I heard it was gorier (+1 because I love practical make-up fx), and all the hype about it getting pulled from it's small theatrical release made it even more promising (+1 hoping for...
Excerpt: Does not have the same super fun feel as the 1st film, but still enjoyable. We get some more back story about Victor Crowley and his family and more Tony Todd. Overall a good over the top slasher flick. PQ is great and so is the AQ, which is DTS-HD MA 5.1 and not DD 5.1 as stated on the cover.
Excerpt: The plot is not that crazy and follows right off the end of the first. The story is actually realy good and you get to know Victor Crowleys story! PQ is as solid as can be for this film, I felt audio lacked a bit. Very decent extras, some repetitive. If you enjoy slasher films pick this up!!!!!!
Conclusion: Hatchet 2 is a franchise genre movie so if you're expecting pathos, emotional depth or cutting edge psychological horror then you will be disappointed. However, if you want a splatter-comedic swamp horror party movie with a cast of well loved genre faces then welcome to the bayou, prepare for voodoo splatter and watch out when the hatchet falls.
Conclusion: This is a brilliant sequel to one of the coolest horrors in the last ten years, Hatchet 2 is more brutal, more bloody and more intense than the first and has a great story too with more insight into the Crowley family, This movie starts off right from where the original left off with Danielle Harris taking over as the lead actress, she is great and does a good job! If your a fan or just have an interest in oldskool splatter gore than this is a must see at any cost!!!
