Storyline

Seven years into the invasion, humankind has fled the cities where billions have died from a plague spread through the internet. JUSTINE (17) dreams of a life beyond her squalid refugee camp where all technology is taboo. She discovers the last working laptop and opens it like Pandora's Box. Someone is waiting for her online. And that someone wants desperately to meet her. The only catch, she must return to the city. With a longing that surpasses fear, Justine embarks on a terrifying journey back to the heart of where it all began. What waits there is something she could not possibly have imagined.

For those of you who hated the remake of Pulse, I can understand why. I, however, was one of the people who enjoyed it. Sure, it had its' flaws and it could have been better, but I liked it. There have been so many worse remakes, and bad movies in general. I'd rate Pulse at a 6 rating.

Pulse 2: Afterlife, however, truly defined the word terrible and actually the worst sequel I have ever seen. It was completely lifeless, had boring performances from the actors and the whole movie (apart from one or two scenes) were in front of a terribly fake green screen. How did this sequel turn into a movie that involved little girls being slapped by their fathers, men in their underwear jumping off of bridges, obese men having sex with ghosts and so on? Terrible.

I watched Pulse 3 because I am a person who watches all the sequels in a franchise. Despite hating the living crap out of Pulse 2, the opening scene with Rider Strong and his girlfriend in this movie, showed promise. No sign of a green screen, decent acting and I was entertained. The rest of the movie is complete garbage with marginally better acting than the second (but still bad), that goddamn green screen, some more laughs (sadly, most likely unintentional) and a horribly "storyline". Pulse 3 is better than Pulse 2, but that's not saying much (ha ha!).

The main problem with Pulse 3, despite the awful green screen, horrid CGI for the ghosts, awful writing and bad acting, is the fact that it is completely pointless. Joel Soisson, the "mastermind" behind Pulse 2 and 3, created a beginning and an end for Pulse 3, but no middle! Most of the scenes in this movie are completely pointless and lead nowhere. About an hour of this movie are just pointless, terribly written scenes and it makes you wonder how the hell this crap got made.

Oh, that's right, Joel Soisson produced the first movie and decided he thought he had what it takes to write two cheap, horrible sequels. Please Joel, for the love of god, do not make any more of these crappy sequels!

2/10 (it would be a 1, but the opening was good)
