Goofs

(at around 47 mins) The scene where PFC Missy and PFC Amber were sitting on a rock and pretending that they were chatting in order to lure the wild mutants into a trap is shot in the late afternoon. Because of the light orange-red background we can clearly see that it is at near the setting of the sun. However, from the next and following scenes to the end of the film, in the dark mines we can see clearly that the sun was shining brightly, which means it is at noontide. See more »

More entertaining (and delightfully ickier!) than the 2006 remake.
13 September 2007 | by ThrownMuseSee all my reviews

Even though it was generally well-received by genre fans, I found the remake of classic "The Hills Have Eyes" to be a typical modern remake. The casting was questionable and the overused shaky-cam was nausea-inducing. French director Alejandra Aja bypassed the original's subtle commentary on the American family post-Vietnam for some half-assed shock scenes that he claimed better fit the contemporary American situation. Huh? I also found the storyline to be much too close to it's predecessor.

Well, the sequel is a surprising improvement (and significantly better than the original's sequel from '85, too.) The storyline is different, the shaky-cam is only used a couple times (and less...shaky), and the filmmakers were wise enough to ditch the half-baked social commentary for a straight-up horror gorefest. And it's a lot of nasty fun! There's lots of very sick ideas here that most horror fans can probably appreciate. The acting is average, the characters are pretty much indistinguishable, and it's rather formulaic, but if you can get past all of that, then this one is good times.
