Why? ... oh, why ?! ... simply horrible!!!
on 6 September 2002
This movie really made me angry:
It is a cheap "direct to video"-production with bad actors, a very weak script, low budget, bad directing and no good ideas at all!
The story about a girl, who kills Patrick Bateman, later goes to collage and wants to become an FBI-agent with the help of an ex-profiler (and now collage-professor), but has to kill off all who stand in her way, ist plain stupid!
Even if you let it stand alone, it is a bad film, but compared to the superb original, this one can't stand a comparison for a second! It made me angry to see that the filmmakers didn't even care about what the ending of the original was about...
"American Psycho" was a great satire about the eighties, Christian Bale was perfect in his role, and the entire movie had style - all this isn't to be found in the sequel.
Avoid at all costs (unless you want to see William Shatner at the end of his career, or are going to filmschool and want to look at an example how not (!) to make sequel or a movie in general...)!!!
Do I sound too negative? Believe me: After watching this picture, you'll understand (so better don't)...
