As far as stuff like mood, atmosphere, tone, and intensity is concerned, this sequel is a completely empty vessel.

The only thing the lowly Hills 2 has going for it is the grossness, ferocity, and superhuman strength of the rampaging mutants. I mean, these guys put the ugh in ugly; they make the original's Michael Berryman look like a hunk.

...could have been more than a pale shadow of the original if the filmmakers had taken their time...

The Hills Have Eyes 2 offers another round of dull, gory fright scenes that neither push the horror envelope nor exhibit any noticeable ingenuity.

There is not any plot worth discussing: people go into a desert, some die. The end.

In case you miss what's happening, one soldier wails, 'Oh, man, we're gettin' picked off one by one, here.'

Well, no, they don't. If they did and if they could see, they would have read the script, passed on it, and we all would have been better for it.

Better made than most low budget and derivative movies of its genre, but it just doesn't have enough to stand out as anything more than an improvement upon those dregs.

This horror fanatic doesn't have room for Craven in his genre anymore. Collect your cash and call it a day already, Wes...

a film as bloodily pointless as the current conflict in Iraq that it so unsubtly allegorises.

Maybe it's just time to put an end to this mutant circle of life, or at least send it straight to DVD from now on.

Another shining example of the sorry state of horror filmmaking these days

Written, disappointingly, by Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, this limp sequel to last year's remake of Wes' 1977 original feels like the work of a guy who's spent a few too many days lost in the desert.

It never generates a real sense of dread or building pressure. Instead, it uses its feeble set-up to string together one grisly shock after another.

One man-versus-mutant dust-up ends with a sledgehammer to the groin. Enough said.

The roman numeral in the title is the most sophisticated thing about the sequel. Otherwise, this radioactive spawn of Wes Craven is abysmal, stupid and -- horror of all horrors! -- incredibly boring.

Although series creator Wes Craven wrote this sequel's script with his son Jonathan, the film has little of that filmmaker's usual sass.
