Not as enjoyable as the original
18 February 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Perhaps I wasn't in the mood when I watched this film but "Mondo Cane 2" seemed a diluted version of the original. Despite the witty, cynical observations of the narrator, most of the sequences are unsatisfying and brief. The film has moments which are genuinely moving, particularly the sequence involving maimed children, but the overall experience was less memorable than the first "Mondo Cane". It just seemed to take elements of the original movie and then replace them with similar sequences, i.e. substituting turtles for baby flamingos. Like the original, it is well edited and the sequences flow well as the viewer is taken on a trip around the world.

Worth a viewing but not a patch on the original shockumentary.

5 out of 10.
