What was up with the music? It was embarassingly "keyboarded". The big problem with this movie is the fact that it didn't take place in an interesting spot. this film has too many characters to keep track of and a dozen continuity mistakes. Take for example the scene where those two guys (don't remember their names) leave the bank and run into the cops outside in the alley. That door was closed a long time ago, yet when they run back to it, it's just now closing. This film was worse than "Vampires". As for the special-effects; they weren't that bad if you ask me. I thought the bats looked real at the beginning. The elevator scene was the best in the movie. Too many ideas used way too many times. A loser of a film.
An excellent waste of good ol' Bruce! Only being given a teaser role in the film was the only real thing making it worth renting. A few chuckles at the dialogue and some gory scenes can't hold this sequel to a not-so-great movie. Oh well. They should have got a few more horror-related actors in this one.
Texas Blood Money just isn't even worth being called a movie. The special effects are cheesy and the film is not as good as the first one (which still wasn't an excellent film). Even if Quentin Tarantino's and Robert Rodriguez's names are on the cover, their influence in making this movie seems to be almost inexistent (some camera shots are interesting..).
I'm really disappointed. The first FDTD flick was fantastic, and a sequel directed by Scott Spiegel, starring Bruce Campbell - that sounds pretty darn great to me. But boy was I disappointed. I've loved Scott Spiegel since I saw his horror/comedy The Intruder about ten years ago. He's still using lots and lots of POV shots and weird angles. But that's not enough, the story is... well, nothing really.
I'm a real dusk till dawn fan, since I first watched it on the
screen. And when I learned that there will be one prequel and one sequel, I
was very happy. After that, I learned that Bruce Campbell will be in the
cast, that also made me happy 'cause I love Bruce. But when I watched the
movie this Saturday, I was totally disappointed, I mean, this is the most
meaningless, plotless and unnecessary sequel I ever seen. I think Dimension
films made a great decision by NOT releasing this crap to the theaters.
What's this movie trying to tell anyway? The vampires can easily rob the
banks? We know they can kill people easily for sure. And for God's sake, how
in the earth that the vampire from the first film (the barman) resurrected
after the melting sequence?
And for the last, if you still want to watch this thing, watch it like something else, not the sequel to the Big Smash Hit. I hope the prequel (Hangman's Daughter) will be much much far from this...
The director of this terrible sequel was trying to hard to be like Robert Rodgriuez. He used too many point of view shots that made the viewer sick (i.e. a POV shot from the inside to the phone wire) the script was that of a cheap HBO movie and looked like it wasn't even filmed on film. They probably used a cheap video camera. The acting was horrible, they only decent acting was by the T-1000 aka Robert Patrick. The main question I had throughout this movie is "Why do Vampires need to rob a bank?" and "Why do Vampires need to use guns?" Horrible movie, not even worth watching.
If you haven't seen the original, then this would be an average B movie that basically just fills up 1 1/2 hours of your time. Poor storyline, special effects are pretty weak, undesirable actors and as a sequel just plain awful.
not bad sequel is nowhere near as good as the original but is a okay timewaster and is lacking in gore but it is mildy entertaining and fairly watchable although has some cool characters it's just barley better then average rent this if you have nothing better to do ** out of 5
An ex-con (Robert Patrick), a wanted fugitive (Duane Whitaker), a down
on his luck rodeo clown (Muse Watson), a dim-wit security guard (Brett
Harrelson) and a tattooed Mexican badass (Raymond Cruz) team up in a
plot to steal millions in a bank heist south of the border, but have
more on their hands than they bargained for. While staying at the "El
Coyote" hotel, rabid vampire bats attack some of the characters,
turning them into bloodsuckers. By the time they reach the bank, most
of the robbers have been transformed and face off against cops, who
surround the premise.
It's another over-the-top gorefest (with pacing and tone similar to the original), with a bare minimum of plot, but enough gore, noisy action, pyro FX, stunt work and explosions to make it all tolerable. Spiegel's flashy camera (he started with Sam Raimi) is all over the place for no apparent reason, but some of the overdone (but imaginative) POV shots are pretty cool. It was filmed in South Africa and L.A.
Quentin Tarantino's stamp is evident during a philosophical discussion on porn. He co-wrote the original story with the director and was executive producer (with Robert Rodriguez).
I am a really big fan of the first part of "From Dusk Till Dawn". Today I
bought the english version of part 2. I thought: "Yeah, part one is great,
"Texas Blood Money" will surely be cool too. I has to be good, cause it
costs about 30-40 US-Dollars." But it wasn't. The story is absolutely weak,
the actors too and the special effects are one of the worst I've ever
seen!!! They only run/drive around and kill all people they can in such a
cruel way I have never seen!
What did Quentin Tarantino do? The first part is such an excellent, great, fantastic movie but the sequel is so bad. Why. Does he only want some more money, cause of the first success?? I am totally disappointed. But I think I will buy part 3 too. Some people said it's nearly as good as part 1. I hope so...
