the sequel captures the humor of the first
Yet another bad sequel
Not the worst straight to video sequel possible, has some fun moments.
Say goodbye to the small town of Perfection, Nevada and say hello to Mexico. Fred Ward and Michael Gross reprise their roles in the Tremors sequel to save Mexico from Graboids, prehistoric, worm-like monsters that live underground. Right off the bat you can tell this sequel is going to do a really good job of capturing what made Tremors such a great movie: The blend of horror and comedy. Again, it works. Another thing I really liked about the first movie were the characters. Tremors 2 has less characters than the original and that was a downplay. Christopher Gartin's character could've done a better job at being a replacement for Kevin Bacon's character in Tremors, but it's a passable gripe. Helen Shaver is in it and she is pretty hot for her age. One thing I forgot to mention in my review for Tremors is how I loved that the special effects are all animatronics and no CGI. Don't get me wrong, I like CGI, but only when it's absolutely necessary for a movie and not overdone. (Are you listening Michael Bay?) The animatronics in this and Tremors are great and I love that it's all puppetry. Another good thing about the movie is how much more action-packed it turns out to be. I wasn't expecting it, but I enjoyed it. Something worth mentioning is some people who have heard of this movie but never seen are often like "Oh, a sequel to Tremors, there's nothing new, it's just set in Mexico this time." Well frankly, there is something new: The Graboids evolve. That's right, giant worms can have a life cycle. Overall, this movie is funny, exciting, well acted, well written and a really good sequel.
Evolution: It's a bitch
Good fun movie. This movie is not scary at all, it just thrilling and a joy to watch. Nice sequel.
When an army of Graboids - giant, carnivorous underground worms - threaten the Petromaya oil refinery in Mexico, its owners call on Earl Bassett, who once helped kill four of the creatures in Perfection, Nevada. Having squandered the money that came from his resulting celebrity status, Earl is convinced by the $50,000-a-head bounty offered, as well as the enthusiasm of admirer Grady Hoover, who becomes his partner. At Petromaya, Earl and Grady meet geologist Kate Reilly, and begin Graboid hunting, tricking several Graboids into swallowing bomb-rigged, remote-controlled cars. When they find they're facing a lot more Graboids than they ever expected, Earl calls his friend Burt Gummer, a survivalist who arrives well-stocked with weapons.
Tremors II: Aftershock build on the previous film, and this time the grabboids have invaded an area of Mexico, Earl and Burt are hired to exterminate them. This film has a more ambitious storyline than the first one because there is a lot more action going on, and obviously Burt's involved and there's more firepower involved. Tremors 2 is a fine little film that continues to built on the success of the first, but it won't top the original. Tremors II offers everything you'd expect from a Tremors film, Comedy, Guns, monsters and thrills. This series is one of the best Horror Comedy series out there and these movies are to please fans of both genres
