Manages to be even worse than the original, 9 February 2013
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I do like low-budget movies when they're entertaining and have a story and characters to care about. I greatly disliked the original Python, and when I read that there was a sequel I decided to see it just to see how it compared. I'd go as far to say after watching it that it's even worse. It makes all the mistakes of the original film, and in most cases it does those mistakes worse. Like the original, Python 2 looks cheap, the settings are nothing new and look bland and the photography and editing are choppy, but they are at least a little better than the special effects(which the close-ups are not kind to), to say that they are cartoonish is an insult to the word cartoonish. The antagonistic snake is not menacing in the slightest, we learn nothing about it and it is utilised poorly. The script is contrived often and sometimes feel like padding, and the story(you decide whether the fact that it has no connection in this regard to the original Python is a good thing or not) is so predictable and lacking in suspense you'll know how it'll end even at the halfway mark. There are so many laugh-out-loud ridiculous moments that you can write a book about them as well. The characters are every stereotype you can think of, and to make it worse they are both obnoxious and poorly developed. The acting, like the original, is dire though at least the original Python had Robert Englund trying hard with the material working against him. Here everybody is either over-compensating or going through the motions. In conclusion, a terrible sequel that manages to be even worse than the original. 1/10 Bethany Cox
