Very far away from the original
31 January 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Asia made some of the best horror films ever.But,now,there are clichés.I mean,the images and concepts which were original a few years ago,now,they are not original anymore and the formula feels very tired.The eye,from 2002,was not too original but Pang brothers(the directors)found the appropriate style and development to transform the clichés on a great,creepy and disturbing experience.Now,with The eye 2,the brothers try something similar but,here,they failed.The development this film has is slow and with nothing of originality.The horror scenes are totally predictable and totally weak with scenes of the female ghost with long hair trying to scare,when it makes laugh.The performances are another weak point from this film:Qi Shu,as the main character,and Jesdaporn Pholdee,as her ex-boyfriend,are too shallow and they cannot give ''life'' to their characters.The best performance this film has is Eugenia Yuan's as a ghost.Almost all the time she does not move but,on the very little scenes we see her ''alive'',her performance is more realistic than the entire cast.The ending is the best point of the movie and it puts on a different context every thing we saw during the ending.But the ending comes too late and after a very generic development.The eye 2 is pretty generic,boring and very far away from the original.
