5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking little film
What a cracking little movie this is!!! I am a long time fan of the original and was almost expecting dissapointment but when you get away from the fact that apart from a few props being the same as the original movie (i.e. the uniforms, the home town and the Hanson Bros.) and watch it for what it is... which is not a real sequel but a comical ice hockey romp in...

2.0 out of 5 stars Woefully Inadequate
Why? That is the question that must be asked. The first film was really something special, one of the great sports movies. This is far from that. It tries hard, but the story itself is poor, completely lacking depth, believability or any originality. Stephen Baldwin is unconvincing, and Gary Busey just goes through the motions. The Hansons are the only good thing in it,...

Does the same for Hockey as Major League did for baseball....
Plenty of laughs, babes and most importantly... hockey!!!!
Buy it and enjoy it!

This film just continues the trend of dreadful sporting sequels, like Caddyshack 2, and Major League 2 & 3. Pray to god they don't try for number 3 on this. Grab a beer, and watch the original again.

It could never match the original, which is probably the best sports movie of all time. But it's OK. Avoid the third installment though.

This review is from: Slap Shot 2 - Breaking The Ice [DVD] (DVD)
Tries to work off the first film but fails in interesting the viewer I believe.Don't expect it to be like the original cult film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slap Shot - Don�t bother, 5 Oct 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Slap Shot 2 - Breaking The Ice [DVD] (DVD)
If you have watched the original film and liked it then be content that you have discovered a great 70's film.
The sequel (like so many other sequels) really doesnt come close to touching the original and within 10 minutes of watching it you realise that it really isnt going to come close.
Poor acting, bad storyline and cheesy / unfunny lines coupled with the Hanson brothers that are 20 years past ther best is a real disapoinment to fans of Slap Shot that were hoping it would be even half as good will be terribley disappointed.

Truly awful. Avoid like the plague. Buy the original and enjoy forever. Don't even imagine this is anywhere even simlar in style to the original. Struggling to give it one star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel as enjoyable as the original, 9 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Slap Shot 2 - Breaking The Ice [DVD] (DVD)
As a fan of the original Slapshot movie, I was a little dubious about a sequel. But I was not disappointed!
The return of the Hanson Brothers was a delight. Besides being a rollicking good hockey movie, it makes a very serious comment about sports being manipulated by the sponsors and penny-counters.
If you enjoyed the original, go for it, and watch this one.
