Quotes

Commander John Forrester: How's everything?
Doctor Morse: Not good. Elaine, one of our female scanners, just died. We're losing too many, too fast. The only functional scanners we have left are Feck, Gruner and Drak.
[watching camera surveillance of Peter Drak]
Commander John Forrester: I wouldn't call that functional.
Doctor Morse: He's got tremendous command of his powers. He could bounce back.
Commander John Forrester: He's a psychopath. What we need is a clean scanner. A virgin mind.

This is what you call a really good sequel
11 April 2010 | by atinderSee all my reviews

David Kellum is talking date to shop and when they attack by robbers and David duck out the way, then they start shooting and killing, shopkeeper get killed and they are holding his date hostage until David Scanner ability come to action, kill the robbers.

John Forrester see the store's security tape and then goes to see David as an employee.

He tells David he is a Scanner, and that there are others like him around the world.

He asks David to help him track down criminals who have been unable to arrest, to which David agrees.

This is great follow up on the first , it not as GREAT as first but really good sequel.

I find the whole movie entertaining, it didn't take long for the movie to grab you in, there were some really great gory and nasty scenes.

The deaths scenes were really good, I love deaths scenes in this.

The performance from the whole cast was really good.

I going this movie 8 out of 10.
