Offensive, entertaining, and gory as hell. Fans of the first should enjoy.
In a small desert town, the few survivors of a bar brawl with a few vicious monsters team up with some locals to, once again, survive the monstrous onslaught.
'Project Greenlight'-winner John Gulager returns to the director's chair with this straight-to-video sequel to his cult hit 'Feast'. The first gained notoriety due to its production on Bravo's film-making series Project Greenlight, which gave 'Feast' a nice run of credit names including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Wes Craven. I very much loved the first one, and consider it a modern-day 'Evil Dead,' due to its cult fame and part of a future trilogy. That reputation, however, now relied on 'Feast II' also being a hit (cult or otherwise). In comparison to the first in general film-making, it pales. The acting, writing, and direction have all gone a bit downhill, though only some of the acting is terrible and the rest of it being at least acceptable. Another problem stood with the character introductions. They were changed up from the quickfire style in the first film, and now seemed like Monday Night Football player intros. Some of them were a bit long and really took the viewer out of the action. While the film doesn't live up to the first in general quality, it does maintain all of what the first was great at: over-the-top gore & violence, sex & nudity, foul language, rubber suited creatures, non-stop action, and hilariously one-dimensional characters. If those kind of things don't work for you, neither will this film. The gore was great and endless, and the violence was brutally gruesome (and often offensive). While it could've used another hot chick or two, the cast fit the roles well, even if some of their performances left quite a bit to be desired. Also, the ending will leave many (including me) somewhere between annoyed, frustrated, and simply wanting more. Luckily, none of the problems were enough to ruin the film and if you're a fan of the first or just looking for some mindlessly bloody entertainment chock-full of biker chicks, super-strength monsters, and wrestling midgets, I can definitely recommend 'Feast II: Sloppy Seconds.'
Final verdict: 6.5/10. I'll be impatiently awaiting 'Feast 3: The Happy Finish.'
