Watchable but poorly executed,
This review is from: Halloween II [DVD] (DVD)
Halloween 2007 was a remake that I rather liked even though it made some rather big changes in the way it told the original story of Michael Myers (i.e: showing what actually made him become the tormented psychopathic serial killer that he would later become and also delved more into the psychitraic sessions between him and Dr Loomis), it was still merely a story (very gory one) that was merely getting from A to B is the best way to describe it with some average-good acting.
Now onto the 2009 sequel, Halloween 2. Again it's a story getting from A to B but this time the writers stupidly put in C (the Dream Sequences, I suppose they felt these scenes would replace the ones between Michael and Dr Loomis but these scenes soon got very irritating as they just repeatedly jump out of no where) The ending hardly makes any sense (the only way it does is if you remember a scene in the middle which is a replica of the opening murder scene from episode 1 but this time with a different character. Some characters like Dr Loomis are now completely re-written. Acting Average-good again but hey it's a slasherfest. There is some fun and scares in the film, it's just a shame that the end product has been executed so badly. Hopefully Halloween 3 will improve upon this mess (I mean this in the right sense).
