Straight-to-DVD sequel to the cult 2001 film 'Donnie Darko'. Seven years after Donnie's death, his little sister Samantha (Daveigh Chase) and her best friend Corey (Briana Evigan), now 18 years old, take off on a road trip to Los Angeles in a bid to hit the big time. When their car breaks down in the small desert town of Conejo Springs, a sequence of bizarre occurences is set in motion that undermines the girls' friendship and threatens to herald the end of the world.

Donnie Darko was a cult classic for it's odd plot, outstanding pefomances from upcoming actors and actress and the hit song Mad World being a Christmas number 1 for a while. When I heard that they were making a sequel, I was a little annoyed as it really didn't need one but would be willing to check it out at home. The story is of Sam, the youngest sister of Donnie, going on a road trip with her friend Corey, only for their car to break down. Stuck in a dead-end town, they meet with all sorts of characters only to have the same sort of event happening again with the world coming to a end in four days only this time without the scary looking rabbit prejecting the future. It was okay, had a much happier ending than Donnie Darko, but like one reviewer did it really need a sequel? It has some stunning sights and alright pefomances from the young cast but I wasn't too overkeen with it. Recommened only if you are a fan of Donnie Darko and is intrested in the sequel, if you are a fan of the orginal and not sure about this avoid as it's not really the same without the lead (Jake Gyllehaal) being in it.

Donnie Darko is one of my favourite films. Sadly, I cannot say the same for the sequel, and understand why the director of the original (Richard Kelly) refused to be involved in any way with the making of a sequel.

To explain - Donnie Darko is an extremely well thought out film, with everything seamlessly tied together at the end. And although it is also complicated, it does make complete sense to those who ponder endlessly over it. Everything is perfect. Sadly, this is not the case with S. Darko.

It seems Fisher has taken the basic elements from the original film - time travel, a complicated plot, and the future trails - and exploited them.

Let's take the future trails: he uses them more often than he should, and makes it seem on a couple of occasions that they are alive (they react to the person). Although it is fine to interpret these things differently, as a viewer, I did not think it worked.

The whole thing seems yet another film about a misunderstood, mopey teenager, which we have seen enough of in Twilight. Although Donnie in the original film was mopey, the audience were also led to believe he was slightly mad. In this film, the main character is simply dislikeable.

One final flaw - the special effects resemble something out of Smallville. They make the film so much less believeable, and prevent the viewer from becoming lost in the universe, as they were in the original.

If you are a huge Donnie Darko fan, I highly suggest you skip the sequel altogether.

It's not that it is badly acted or directed because those two elements are, on their own, okay. It is just that it is completely pointless and muddled. And this would apply even if the original film had not been a masterpiece.

It doesn't have any coherent plot and then makes it worse by contriving time slips to completely change the non-plot again. It has a sort of sub story about missing people but doesn't make that a coherent part of the story.

It is terrible and very disppointing. The one star is for it being relatively short - thankfully.

If you have watched the original Donnie Darko 1 then please do not watch this or even think about it.

This film will ruin your donnie darko 1 experience. the story does not even relate to donnie darko and uses the same storyline again with very few changes.

Story does not even make any sense either, an absolute failure in terms of a good movie, i hated this film and i would never recomend it to anyone.

Watch donnie darko 1 the original and youll be amazed.

I am a huge Donnie Darko fan and was excited when I found out there was a sequal. When it arrived I was very disapointed. There was hardly any story to it and there was really no need for it. I got bored quickly and it really ruined the whole Donnie Darko experience for me. Dont wate your money.

Whats wrong with this film?

It doesnt have a heart, we dont have much sympathy for any of the characters. You know something is wrong when characters are dying and you dont really care.

The actors give half-hearted performances; nothing seems very believable or delivered with much passion.
It's doesnt help that alot of the characters are essentially cliches at their core. Sam the protagonist is the young innocent and honest virgin type and her friend Corey the more rebellious,risque,promiscious and wild type.

Its a shame that there is little character development to expand the characters, just not enough to make them truly interesting with the exception of a few scenes. The supporting characters suffer the same problems and quite a few are just nothing more than typical cliches.

The story did have some interesting points but the ending wasnt a climax, its just so bland throughout. Our journey around the town seemed devoid of any interesting character albeit there was a few interesting scenarios but that was it.

The film in general shocks me that it had a 4 million dollar budget, the setting and camera-work could justify such a big budget but the actors and script are bordering on B-movie status.

Its watchable, 4/10 as the film in my opinion is just trying to ride on the success of Donnie Darko, and it fails miserably in comparision to it.
