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.

It goes for the jocular jugular, and if you want to see the human body mutilated in clever and amusing ways than this is the film for you.

[A] spurious waste of time... empty and meaningless, even grading on the amateurish-low-budget-horror curve...

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.

"Hatchet II" falls prey to a problem that typically plagues sequels: it's not just more of the same; it's WAY more of the same.

Doesn't match the pure, unadulterated charm of its precursor, but gets the job done by devising some of the more inventive deaths in horror history. Danielle Harris slam-dunks an emotionally demanding role.

The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement.

The movie is never as cheeky or as fun as Green thinks it is, but he tries with all his might.

Hatchet II is distinguished both by a funky, frisky sense of humor, and gore of great quality and quantity.

Maybe [Adam] Green intended to parody how low-rent and awful slasher sequels usually are. If so, the joke's on his audience.

More funhouse than grindhouse, this unrated horror-comedy has its D-grade charms thanks to its killer cast.
