Wolf Creek 2 comes out 9 years after the original one, it seems to pick up right after the first one. Director Greg McLean (director of both Wolf Creek 1 & 2) was quoted saying: "Our goal is to create an even more suspenseful, chilling and unforgettable experience for audiences and we feel very confident they will not be disappointed." They succeeded! I can't imagine what they cut from this movie to get it approved. This sequel doesn't focus much on character development like the first one, it's basically suspense from beginning to end in a game of cat and mouse with gory snuff kills along the way that is at times a bit shocking; (one death in particular) due to the movie being mostly all practical effects, it appears more real than everything CGI. Credit is due for not just trying to redo the first movie, and throwing the audience for a loop, and making me cringe at times and want to look away! When you figured the storyline was going one way, your dead wrong, no pun intended!!
This sequel blows the original one out of the water on every level! This rarely happens with sequels so well done, It's like they learned from the first one and made it more exciting, more entertaining and more interesting! The movie didn't seem rushed either with a running time of 2 hours 16 minutes. I love that Black Widow was in this movie as a sidekick! She's awesome! Chris Evans is the perfect Captain America and is really easy to look at!!
I didn't have many expectations going into the movie, I expected a Hunger Games rip-off. It was fairly entertaining overall, decent plot and ideas. I liked the dream sequences of their "deepest fears" Overall I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as The Hunger Games but it was still good. Worth watching.
No Eli Roth. This was suppose to be a prequel to the original. Leading up to the "Water virus spreading". It wasn't as affective or as dark without Eli Roth involved. It started out decent, was interesting but quickly got silly, eventually leading into 2 woman all decayed with their boobs out, skin peeling away, muscle showing, wrestling!? WTF.....
Good movie for what it was, Matthew McConaughey wasn't as annoying as he usually is, I can't believe he lost all that weight for the role!! Scary. Jared Leto steals the show though! He is one convincing transexual. Well deserved Golden Globe for him.
