Storyline

The evil Djinn is awakened by a female thief, Morgana, during a botched robbery. He takes credit for the crime, letting himself be put into prison so that he can offer twisted wishes to prisoners in return for their souls. If Morgana asks him for three wishes, then his race, the Djinn, can take over Earth, killing all humanity. Written by <crow_steve@hotmail.com>

A great sequel? You wish. It is fun though.
30 April 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Andrew Divoff returns to once again grant wishes with twisted results. The directorial duties are handled by Jack Sholder this time but that's just about the only thing that's new here.

Another day, another chance for the djinn (Divoff) when he's released during the robbery of an art gallery. This time around we find out that the djinn needs 1001 souls to properly "charge up" before granting the three wishes from his waker (Holly Fields) that will bring about a djinn-ruled hell on earth. What better place to collect desperate souls than in a prison?

Slightly weaker in almost every way compared to the first movie, this sequel gets by thanks to the fun still to be had with the central premise and the fantastic performance, once again, from Andrew Divoff. Nobody else makes much of an impression here, this is all Divoff's show.

Lame, repetitive dialogue ("fulfil the prophecy" and "make your wishes" must be spoken at least 20 times between this film and the first) and characters you don't care about mix with another load of entertaining death scenes, even if the FX work is not up to the high standard set by the first film. It's not great but it's still a lot of fun and a hell of a lot better than the movies that would follow it.
