Funnier and more gleefully gory than most slasher sequels, Hatchet II aims for so-bad-it's-good territory, but can't quite hack it.

Mosquitoes bite. Gators tear. But only Victor Crowley strangles a man with his own intestines until his head explodes.
This is basically an excuse to watch skulls crushed like melons, guts ripped from body cavities and torsos halved. And such things go on with relentless and disgusting regularity.
Swift and amusingly brainless, Hatchet II more than delivers on splatter expectations.
Say a prayer that there's no Hatchet III in the future.
Suffers from lamentable acting, murky cinematography and, for the most part, lamely unfunny dialogue.
The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement.
While some of the kills seem more over the top, it's clear that most of the cast is there simply to become victims, and there's plenty of fake blood and gobby bits to go around.
More of the same, which means you probably already know if you like it. (I mostly did.)
Once you get past its relentless gore, Hatchet II just isn't a very good movie, and Green's struggles to get it released are far more interesting than the movie itself.
Unnecessary back story, toilet humor, and overlong gags involving gore, yes, this is a sequel to "Hatchet" alright!
Not even a gnarly beheading can rescue this chop job
Certainly gory and goofy at times, but nearly as amusing as the first, riddled with unlikable characters, lazy dialogue and a dull middle act.
A very simple follow up continuing from the same night as the first. Just another quick excuse for lots of extreme gore and kills with a very weak story line. One for the gorehounds, otherwise there is not much substance for anyone else.
While the first "Hatchet" isn't a classic by any stretch, it is a good homage(there's that word again Bob) to slasher movies. Victor Crowley may not be a Jason or Freddy, but he is an acceptable crazy horror villian. This one picks up right where the first one left off and follows Marybeth(the only survivor from 1) as she tries to get revenge against Crowley for killing her loved ones. Not rocket science to figure out how this movie goes. Lots of blood, guts, some sex, and great crazy kills. Must say this movie gets a solid B+ in the originality department when it comes to killing people. It you like crazy, bloody horror movies, then check it out. If you have a weak stomach, watch something else pansy.
Sequel to the awesome Hatchet, Hatchet II picks ups where the first one left off. Though lacking the fire of the original, Hatchet II is still an engaging horror flick with plenty of gore to appeal to fans of the first one. A young woman named Marybeth hires a bunch of hunters to find her family who disappeared in the Louisiana bayou. The legend of Victor Crowley makes people nervous, but Marybeth doesn't want to hear about it. I thought that this was a good sequel and I really enjoyed that director Adam Green returned as director for this entry, and it made it that much better. I find Adam Green to be a rising star in the horror genre and he crafts effective old school themed horror that are actually great, original, well acted and very entertaining. Victor Crowley returns of course and theres even more blood and mayhem in this sequel. Hatchet II is a fun and entertaining film that despite the fact that it slightly weaker than the first, still manages to be an effective horror film. There are a few things that could have been done better, but for the most part, Hatchet II is a definite must see for fans of the first film. Adam Green delivers yet another solid horror film, and I believe he should get more recognition as a director. Also another thing I enjoyed was seeing Tom Holland in this film playing Uncle Bob. For those familiar with him, he directed Fright Night and as a diehard fan of Fright Night I thought it was great to see him here. Hatchet II is a must see sequel that delivers the horrifying thrills.
Inevitable letdown will hopefully grow more enjoyable with age. Merits of bringing Danielle Harris in are debatable, as her acting style appears to have been limited to raising one eyebrow over and over. Hodder, as always, is the reason to watch.
