Cruel Intentions 2 Reviews
Ouf... Si le 2, qui est en fait le début de Sebastian et Kathryn, était avec les mêmes acteurs principaux, ça aurait surement eu plus d'impact! Les acteurs, bien que je les aime bien, n'ont vraiment pas assuré! Et très mauvais dialogue!
I compare this film to the straight-to-DVD American Pie: Band Camp. It's entertaining, but not the exact same. It's more aware of itself as a film, and at times feels like a Dawson's Creek episode--which it acknowledges once or twice.
Although many may not like the twist ending, I think that it concludes an interesting backstory as to how Sebastian got to be so wicked and conniving in the original film.
Cruel Intentions 2 steals a lot from the original, but also provides some more jokey dialogue and shock value--hence the American Pie type film. The jokes miss a lot of the time and are usually set up very blatantly.
The plot might move a little slow and it may be low budget, but it's not a complete waste of time if you're a fan of the original.
Twizard Rating: 59
The performances of Sarah Thompson & Robin Dunne were very good in a not so good film. Thompson is a good actress from TV's "7th Heaven", but why did she do this film? I actually thought the plot concept for this film was better than the original but was just poorly executed. Amy Adams's version of Katherine was over acted to the hilt.
In the middle of the film it actually progresses into a nice love affair between Dunne (Sebastian) & Thompson. But I am so not buying into the plot twist at the end. How could the nice innocent girl played by Thompson be part of one of Katherine's schemes to get back at Sebastian? Give me a break. She would not even be capable of it. Kumble is a cynical guy & the ending is too smart for itself. The film may be worth seeing for those strictly into dark comedies. If you see it kick back, drink some scotch, & watch an archaic Blue Blood world that unfortunately still exists. In general skip it & see the original. This film is essentially just a reproduction of the first film.
