I enjoyed SCANNERS 2 and SCANNERS 3, which I thought had effective spins on the original SCANNERS movie. Recently I saw SCANNER COP, and I enjoyed that movie as well, so I eagerly rented SCANNER COP II when I found it at my local video store. Unfortunately, this entry in the series, while not really awful, is disappointing all the same. I will admit that the movie never has a boring moment, and it boasts some good make-up effects and other gory moments. Despite this, the movie comes across as quite cheap at times, with shabby sets or locations that look like they were shot in abandoned warehouses. There is also a subplot involving the hero's long- lost mother that seems awkwardly tacked on, and is hardly worked on for the most part. The biggest problem is that much of the movie seems to be repeating itself, with the villain doing the same things over and over. If you've seen the other entries in the series, you might as well watch this, but definitely keep your expectations low.
