Hostel Part II Reviews
December 30, 2020
Unfairly written off as a cheap and misogynistic cash-grab when it's actually a feminist horror film with a smart, relatable and queer final girl.

A tight-fisted slow burn that whacks you in face with two or three really horrifying sequences.

Gory torture bloodbath checks in for another stay.

There are some grisly deaths gore hounds would approve of, but the focus is more on the motives of the murderous pervs and the inner workings of the snuff corporation.

Filmmaker Eli Roth tries to enliven the formula, but this sequel loses the grim surprise of the original without adding much new in terms of plotting or gory set pieces.

This second film definitely shows Roth's absolute courage as a director. He didn't pull any punches with this follow up.

The lasting effect of all three of Eli Roth's films is a certain kind of Grand Guignol "Punk'D", in which the "mark" is not only embarrassed, he's also cut to pieces.

Roth não é apenas um sujeito doente e repulsivo, mas também um picareta sem talento que usa seus filmes para torturar o espectador como num de seus "albergues".

In the end, one comes to the conclusion that Roth, like his mentor Quentin Tarantino, is someone who is very good at talking the talk but can't quite bring himself to walk the walk and himself make the kind of film his own are parasitic upon.

Roth's satire of fright junkie male castration fears and feminist castration fantasies, mandates that you're going to have to have your cock and eat it too, whether consumed live during elegant dining to the sound of opera, or by killer canine pets.

Just a sub-par and obscenely overrated piece of lazy horror filmmaking...

Roth's dark humor and lacerating view of human weakness sometimes suggest George Romero; what he lacks is Romero's stubborn belief in personal morality.

Hostel, Part II is bad, but it's not the most objectionable torture porno by any conceivable yardstick.
July 11, 2007
Sadly, the director's proven creative finesse has given way to boring self-imitation. Hostel: Part II gives us the same premise as the first film, changing genders and little else.

One may as well watch a marathon of American beheadings at the hands of Iraqi insurgents with popcorn in hand - the entertainment value is surprisingly comparable.
