Decently made as far as special effects and visuals, but boring compared to the original. It really wasn't funny like the first one and didn't really add much to the plot or anything.
At parts esp the middle half it started to drag. The ending was abrupt and just didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense. Also, being good friends with a murder mystery novelist was too convenient and dumb. This film hasn't aged well, as the main heroine just goes along with whatever her schyster husband does with no questioning or arguing *eye roll.*
The last half of the film went a bit too dark for me. The beginning was very sad but somewhat relatable and rather interesting with cat/mouse game n all the symbolism. I felt conflicted throughout the film, esp bc the predator was poorly-casted I think as a good looking man (yes I realize predators come in all shapes/sizes but still). That one rape scene tho was horrible to watch. Also, the bad guy was nice altho moronic to her at the end while Angel she didn't seem to have that much of a connection with and treated her almost as bad as the bad guy. It was confusing to me a bit her decisions later on and that's where the film lost me. It started getting a little too artsy-fartsy, nihilism. Instead of really exploring the issues it seemed to take the easy way out that she just kills him, when most women of that time in that situation would've had to prob just live with their predator n move on. Reminded me a lot of that 2016 movie Lady Macbeth. I thought the beginning was very good and the lavish cinematography of the English countryside was beautiful. The main actress is stunning. By the end, I just am glad I'm not living in those times esp as a woman. I'm also glad once again I'm a woman in America.
I found myself pleasantly surprised by this film, the further it went on. I found Harvey to be incredibly amusing as the pretentious little boy who was always getting himself into trouble due to little guidance. Then when him and Manuel got together it was friendship magic. *spoiler alert*** I couldn't help but cry when Manuel died, hit in the gut like a Disney film. The ending was a bit abrupt, but the rest of the film was quite entertaining. Besides the great characters, I enjoyed the realistic depiction of fisherman and theyre bravery/hard work. A touching film, families can enjoy.
Very formulaic, campy, and shallow. I didn't really care for the male lead who was extremely stubborn. The best part of the film was the music and most of it wasn't that great except the main hook. A snoozer.
