Critic Reviews for Scanners II: The New Order

All Critics (2)

Scanners II features a weak script, poor acting and middling effects; Scanners III contains an even worse script, even worse acting and even worse effects.

Creative Loafing

A little self-serious, and occasionally unintentionally goofy.

Audience Reviews for Scanners II: The New Order

An inferior sequel with poor directing and un-impressive exploding heads! David Hewlett, who Stargate fans will recognise, is a pretty capable lead, there are a few effective sequences, and... erm, the music score was ok, I guess. I was more disappointed in this than your average sequel because the original film had so many unexplored threads and ideas, but sadly The New Order doesn't really offer anything fresh, and instead tries to predictably reference the original. This film seems much more of its time than Cronenberg's original, which had a futuristic feel. Tom Butler is a lousy bad guy, too.
