Cheesy and yucky, it's a guilty pleasure.

A nastily effective piece of action-horror, as reflective of its time and its war as the Vietnam-era Deliverance was of its time and war.

The new movie is a pre-combat nightmare, whereas the first -- Alexandre Aja's effective 2006 remake of Craven's low-rent 1977 original -- was pure post-nuclear paranoia.

Helmer Martin Weisz, whose background is largely in musicvideos, meets the challenge of creating dread in broad daylight, before the entire cast of soldiers and carnivores heads underground, into the warren of mines and tunnels where the mutants dwell.

A sequel to a remake that's surprisingly intelligent and original, and it proves to be a worthy successor to both Alexandre Aja's 2006 Hills and Wes Craven's 1977 original.

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.

It's extremely grisly, brutal and scary. And not bad at all if you like this kind of thing.
