Well it's... um... not as bad as the first one
10 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... in the same sense that having a terrible cold isn't as bad as having the flu. Seriously, this movie stinks as bad as the first one. The format is the same in that we follow our heroes doing virtually nothing for 40 minutes, then the birdemic happens, and then our heroes drive around shooting birds for the rest of the movie.

If there's one thing which can be said in favor of Birdemic 2, it's that the editing is slightly better. But the acting is still totally atrocious, and the main actors didn't seem to learn much about acting between Birdemic 1 and 2. In fact, Whitney Moore's acting ability seemed to have gotten worse. And of course the plot is also nonexistent and the story line is completely ridiculous. And the movie starts out with about 10 minutes of what looks like surveillance footage of a guy walking down the street.

The same usual bad camera work is in use for this sequel as well. At times it's obvious a hand-held camera was being used as the shots got a bit shaky. The sound was atrocious, and often the actors' voices were covered with background music, sound effects, or noise (Mr. Nguyen, please invest in a boom mike before making any more movies). In some scenes no effort was made for sound dampening, as the actors' voices echoed from the room they were shooting in.

The basic plot makes no sense, as somehow some kind of blood rain falls making all sorts of prehistoric eagles and vultures come back to life from the La Brea tar pits. I guess global warming is so bad it melts the tar and makes dead animals stuck in it come back to life. And somehow even a couple of cave people for good measure. Later in the movie it even makes zombies rise from the grave. All of which our heroes have to fight. Of course, if they didn't think they had to stop and help the weirdest people they could find while driving around in a stolen RV, they wouldn't have that problem. And of course, the ending is as anticlimactic as in the first Birdemic. But we are hit over the head with a bunch of anti-global warming and pro-green preaching. Climate change is a big deal, but nobody's going to win someone over to environmental issues with a crappy movie like this.

There are plenty of mistakes in this movie which make it laughable. The actors fire hundreds of shots from pistols, shotguns, and an Uzi, but never have to reload. In the first bird attack scene on the movie set (inside a building, somehow the birds got inside) I counted some 77 shots fired between two actors firing pistols without reloading. And of course with all the birds getting hit and splattering into pieces, none of them end up dead on the floor. The actors constantly have blood on their faces & arms which disappears between shots, and they never actually got scratched by a bird in the first place. The scene in the movie theater where the birds were attacking the moviegoers (again, inside a building), the people were just sitting in their seats being attacked but not running out of the building. And when some people get splattered with bird blood, it makes them fall down and die for some reason. This is never explained. Neither is it explained why the blood rain would make a few zombies crawl out of their graves. Also, in the first movie Rod was a pro-green environmentalist, but in this movie when talking to people about saving the environment he acted like it was a new concept.

And of course we have the same kind of animated .gif birds which were in the first movie, which makes it totally unrealistic and unbelievable. It is, though, funny seeing all these "attacking" birds on the screen over a shot of a public park with people walking around nonchalantly.

There is a gratuitous boobie scene in this movie, which surprised me since in the first movie Nguyen didn't want the lead characters to get naked in the hotel scene. That scene is actually the best thing in this entire movie.

Birdemic 2 is bound to be yet another "so bad it's good" classic. If you're a real masochist, watch both of them in succession.
