Critic Reviews for The Hills Have Eyes 2

All Critics (68) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (60)

  • The Hills Have Eyes 2 offers another round of dull, gory fright scenes that neither push the horror envelope nor exhibit any noticeable ingenuity.

    July 23, 2008
  • In case you miss what's happening, one soldier wails, 'Oh, man, we're gettin' picked off one by one, here.'

    August 22, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Written, disappointingly, by Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, this limp sequel to last year's remake of Wes' 1977 original feels like the work of a guy who's spent a few too many days lost in the desert.

    April 12, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • One man-versus-mutant dust-up ends with a sledgehammer to the groin. Enough said.

    April 2, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Although series creator Wes Craven wrote this sequel's script with his son Jonathan, the film has little of that filmmaker's usual sass.

    April 1, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The mutants may or may not live to kill again, but at this point, these fussed-over grotesques are better suited to wax museums than movie theaters.

Audience Reviews for The Hills Have Eyes 2

    So fucking bad. One of the dumbest films I've ever seen. I think I lost brain cells watching this.

    Better than the first thanks to some good action scenes but again it's the same old plot, Same old jumps and it's quickly forgotten.

    Better than the other Hills Have Eyes 2 but not as good as the second Hills Have Eyes... Man, movie title marketing is confusing... My roommate loves this one a lot because she has a hard on for military horror, and while I don't love it, I'm still happy to give it a regular re-watch.

    An unneeded sequel to the remake of the hillbilly horror cult classic. The story does not make much sense and bared little relation to the first film. The acting was terrible and mutants looked even worse.
