Somehow, this one's even worse than the first.
January 26, 2006
This first sequel to Friday the 13th opens with mild panache... The script then jumps five years, assembles a new set of victims at the summer camp, and repeats the gory carnage as before.

Gory with a hint of humour, this pretty much does what it says on the tin.

One monster's company, II's a crowd.

It still is a sad commentary that so much creative energy should have gone into such a sordid, kinky and ultimately demoralizing look at such bizarre facets of human nature both on the screen and in the audience.

This movie is a cross between the Mad Slasher and Dead teenager genres; about two dozen movies a year feature a mad killer going berserk, and they're all about as bad as this one.

There are no real surprises, just plenty of methodical murders, with graphic impaling being the favourite.

A little better than its predecessor, but that's not saying much.

Yes, it blows. Try to contain your surprise.

February 20, 2009
Perhaps the least interesting of all the Friday the 13th films, since it tries to be a "sequel" to the first film, referencing themes and storylines.
January 17, 2008
Its general competence remains a surprising improvement, albeit not one strong enough to elevate it into the realm of recommendation.

Producer-director Steve Miner doesn't move in and out of scenes with the flair of original producer-director Sean Cunningham nor is he able to create the same nauseatingly realistic murder situations.
September 24, 2003
Some of the murders are fantastic, but mostly this feels like nearly identical retread.

Friday the 13th Part 2 never aspires to be termite art.

The new camp counselors are interchangeable with the old ones. Different faces, same basic people.

Basically only for completists looking to see Jason take center stage for the first time. [Blu-ray]

...ultimately right in line with its passable yet far-from-memorable predecessor.
