Gory torture bloodbath checks in for another stay.

Poseur callousness all the way

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oh, do grow up.

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.

Picking up where the first film ended, writer-director Roth adds two angles to his formula, but neither is enough to make this grisly film worth watching.

It is pretty boring. But then the gore is even worse to watch.

Unlike the original's many imitators, this follow-up at least tempers its atrocities with satirical humour.
June 29, 2007
Cue the blood-gushing finale, which has a few surprises up its sleeve. I wasn't a fan of the original and, despite Hostel: Part II's slicker look, I'm still not.

By spending so much time thinking up ever more innovative ways of killing people, he loses the bigger picture resulting in a much poorer film.
June 29, 2007
Hostel 2 is feebleness itself, poorly constructed and deeply unterrifying, a let-down after the giddy shockfest of the first film last year.
June 29, 2007
Everything, save the bloody third act, is handled in a rudimentary fashion.
