The main course rocks!
29 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't decide which is better.The original Critters,or this.I think they're not the same. I was very happy when I saw the movie first,because the like-able characters from Critters movie returns! In my opinion,it's the best sequel film I've ever seen. If I have to choose,Critters 2 is better then Gremlins 2. I give this movie 10 out of 10. Excellent! (I don't have to say:Mick Garris is a great director!) I agree with the good comments. In this film,we can see love,humor,horror,and sci-fi. A very good package! If you like 80's horror-comedy movies,YOU MUST SEE THIS! I'm not joking! But the original IMDb votes are...3,9 stars?! It's not fair! I want to give it 9-10 stars! OK,well,It's not a master-movie like Tarantino's movies,but Critters 1-2-3-4 are entertain you! The main course rocks!
