Reviews

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Majorly flawed sequel to a fantastic film 20 Dec 2010
By Ellie
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did It Really Need A Sequel? 26 July 2009
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't touch with a bargepole 23 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
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.

This movie isn't bad. It follows the type of movie Donnie Darko was, although there is multiple time travelling in this as well, but the main character shifts from Samantha Darko to her best friend half-way through before her friend sacrifices herself to bring Samantha back for the climax.

I'm happy I bought this as I wanted to see it and I don't understand why people are treating this like the plague. If you don't like it, ignore it and pretend Donnie Darko is alone in the cinematic universe. If you liked it, cool.

Nice picture and good sound. Plus, I wish I could time-travel to 1995. Well, earlier, before Kurt Cobain died. That's probably one of the reasons I liked this as well, I'm a huge fan of the nineties.

Look, it doesn't hold a candle up to Donnie Darko, but if you're feeling adventurous and would like to watch something Donnie Darko-esque without ruining Donnie Darko after 100+ viewings, give this a spin. At this price, you can't really argue.

I'm not ashamed I bought it, I don't hate the film-makers for making this and I can view this as canon or non-canon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Donnie's sister has let him down. 26 Jan 2011
By Phoebe
Format:DVD
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.

By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Donnie Darko" was a film you had to watch twice, because when you learnt what the real twist was you had to watch it all again with a totally different perspective- a very clever film.

"S. Darko" tries to pull the same trick twice, but doesn't have the same appeal. Seven years after the events of "Donnie Darko", Donnie's now-grown-up younger sister Sam is on a road trip with friend Corey, where their car breaks down in a dead-end town and strange things start unfolding. It's a combination of stuff you've seen before (transparent glowing time-worms coming out of your stomach) and stuff you haven't (impossible geometrically-shaped orange meteors).

The cast seem to have been pulled from a predictable teen movie- there's the wispy blonde, the ballsy brunette with a nose piercing, the handsome jock, the geek with classes, a house party where people jump in the pool... an unbelievably cliched bunch of characters that are totally at odds with the sinister storyline. The actors are generally far too flat and emotionless. No matter how they're supposed to be acting, they all just look permanently vacant.

It's actually a fairly watchable story in its own right, but the acting is a letdown and it's not a patch on the "Donnie" version.

I liked the first film but this one didn't live up to it's predecessor. Sometimes sequels really shouldn't be made and this is a good example of why.
