As worthy as the first
1 August 2010 | by cai_tian_longSee all my reviews

Chakushin ari 2 is a worthy addition to the One Missed Call franchise. It has a strong sense of narrative that drives the film, with enough twists to thwart the viewer when he thinks he already sees what's to come next. Certain scenes offer up subtle but truthful commentaries regarding man's mediated communication through technology, man's mediated relationships, and the obvious message of the first--abuse spawns more abuse.

This sequel is as good as the first in its attempt to create a world all too real and similar to our own yet with its own quirks and rules that gives possible space for the supernatural narrative. There may be times when the film lags with certain scenes that stay too long on screen but the general idea is one worth watching, not to mention the killer ending! :)
