Could've used a heavy metal soundtrack lol.
30 May 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

A very "industrial" film. Flesh and metal are one. Steel and concrete are everywhere. Not blood, but corrosion is being drawn.

A lot of people say that this film had a higher budget that the first one (which I haven't seen yet). It didn't really feel that way to me. The movie looked very, very low quality and felt very "small". Could've used a heavy metal soundtrack lol. The plot was hard to follow. Whereas a lot of other films are very high on dialogue, this one didn't really had enough dialogue to really be able to follow the story. It was very loose.

This movie is being tagged as sci-fi/drama/horror. Sci-fi and drama are about right, but if you're looking for a horror film, meh. Not really.

I loved the shots of the skyscrapers. It really added to the industrial feel of this movie.

It was alright. Nothing I would really re-watch. I'll check out the first one very soon. I heard there's a part 3 too, so that should be interesting! 6*
