The advertising tag — “You asked for it” — is the best thing about “Birdemic 2: The Resurrection.” Its 2010 predecessor, “Birdemic: Shock and Terror,” was one of those rare instances of filmic ineptitude so distinctive it could pass as inspired folk art, winning the biggest midnight-movie following since Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room.” Lacking the bizarro-world charisma of that film’s auteur/star, however, James Nguyen’s sequel is a much less transfixing whatsit that takes far too long getting to the slender amusement of its ludicrous “action” scenes. Nonetheless, fan curiosity should propel this self-distributed follow-up on a niche road that’s already scored various midnight and one-off showings across the U.S. and Europe.
Nguyen instantly re-establishes his signature style with a long opening credits sequence in which simply capturing a protagonist walking down a street — in this case, Hollywood Boulevard — mightily challenges the acting and directorial skills on tap. »
