The Best One
14 October 2003 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Island of The Haunted is the second Pretender TV movie, and apparently the last one. It has been two years since this TV Movie was premiered, and there is no 3rd installment. I guess all those Centre questions will remain mysteries. ISLAND OF THE HAUNTED was very good, in that there was a lot more action than in the first movie, and a lot more questions were answered. However, the ending was a disappointment. There was no closure to The Centre, and everything was left up in the air, like usual.

After so many hints that Jarod is the brother of Miss Parker the story seems to be afraid to go there and bring up the hysterical Star Wars jokes. Pretender does not seem to be able to end the story, because any ending will be anti-climactic and cause the fans to say "That really sucked." So it seems that every movie will just go in several different directions, and try to maintain an audience interested by teasing them.

I recently saw some of the original early episodes; when the series was fresh and Jarod's main interest was to help other people and victims of The Centre. The never-ending story about finding his family and figuring out what the relationships were between his family and The Centre's main characters is very boring. It seems pointless to even try, since everyone at The Centre is incapable of being honest. The series was more exciting and fun when it concentrated on Jared helping strangers while staying one step ahead of The Centre.

It is a shame that this series was never concluded, and that Jarod never finally got The Centre's main characters either arrested or killed-off for the sake of Justice. It is also strange that his mother seems to be avoiding him every time he almost catches up to her. She does not seem very interested in being reunited with her son. Another movie with more of the same mysteries about family relationships is pointless. What made the Pretender an interesting and creative series when it started was lost a long time before the series got canceled.
