Storyline

Filmmaker Bruce McDonald returns to the mockumentary format of his 1996 cult favorite Hard Core Logo in this sequel of sorts. In this film's alternate universe, McDonald left his native Canada after the box-office success of Hard Core Logo for the United States and a successful career directing cable television projects. Now his career has gone into a tailspin and he's working on a cheesy reality show on Wiccans to pay the rent. In the course of his research, he encounters Care Failure, the manic, drug-fueled lead singer with the punk band Die Mannequin, and learns she's convinced she's been possessed by the spirit of the late Hard Core Logo frontman Joe Dick.

A weak, direct-to-video caliber sequel
12 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Being a huge Hard Core Logo fan, I eagerly anticipated this sequel as the start of Bruce McDonald's long-teased resurgence of the Hard Core Logo Universe. When I saw that HCL2 was to play at TIFF '11, I hastily bought my ticket and hoped to once again experience that real feeling that was the original film. What I got instead was one of those films that bears little resemblance to the original, with only one or two minor characters from the original (think of the American Pie direct-to-video sequels featuring Jim's Dad) in a dull, 'thinks-it's- better-than-it-is' package. Where HCL was a film about a the band of the same name, HCL2 is basically a mostly-fictional tale of Bruce McDonald's life since the original film. In this film Care Failure of Die Mannequin is the rock star, supposedly possessed by the spirit of Joe Dick, who should have been relegated to a cameo at the most. She just sits around smoking, mumbling, and trying to stay awake. She is lifeless and uninteresting. The same can be said for the entire film. The original had energy, passion, emotion. HCL2 is just a mess of scenes lacking any intrigue or drama. There is simply nothing engaging about the film. No plot, no musical set pieces, no one with any real acting skills. There are laughs in the film, though few and far between, and they, along with Julian Richings return as Bucky Haight, are the saving graces of HCL2. I would go as far as to say this film is a disgrace to the name Hard Core Logo. It seems Bruce was desperate to just make that sequel he had been itching for and didn't care if he had a quality script. HCL2 is weak and a waste of time.
