3.0 out of 5 stars O dear. . . I changed my opinion, 7 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Space - Aftermath [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I will leave my original review up tho my mind has been changed quite a bit. The main reason is, I feel this story while still not as well done as the 1st is still enjoyable to watch.

It really is all about (Nolan) Stross, and you simply wont care or know who he is if you HAVE NOT played Dead Space 2. While still trying to do too much, it does tell and show how the marker can effect people. With Stross suffering most. Its dropped in price and for that reason I say give it ago.

*********************************orginal review below*****************************

In short, its terrible. Dont bother unless you are the biggest fan boy/girl and its a freebie.

Like most people who are sitting at this page. I'm a Dead Space fan. I own the orginal PC game, and Dead Space:Extraction for Wii. Both I reconmend.

This film on the other hand, I do not.

I saw the 1st Dead Space movie Downfall and liked it. Certainly didn't love it. Personally thinking the animated comic where the best extension of the story after the Dead Space:Extraction game.

Not this "film"

Feeling like a cheap cash in compared to the 1st movie. You cant rent it (as far as I'm aware!) and with good reason.

Its not a good movie to watch even if your not a fan. Despite the nice opening at the start of the film, it all falls apart very quickly. The story is mostly set around 4 people (who you will fail to care about) and how they recall a incident. What you get is a story told from 4 different view point in a slightly different styles with some god awful CGI space sequences in between. While the ending is predicable, AND achieves nothing.

It feels completely soul less and is hard to believe that the company who made the 1st movie has spat this disaster out too.

Next time dont shoehorn the story and actually take some time with it.

And dont even start me on the Dante Inferno shameless plug!

I totally agree.
And i'm not even much a D.S fan, but the previous film was epic in comparison to this piece of crap!
