Goofs

Vincent claims in Revelation that the Brethren wear gas masks and miner suits because they believe they will become "corrupted by the darkness" if they don't. In the first film, the mining suits and gas masks are shown to act as a deterrent to attacking monsters in the Otherworld, and the cult's priestess, as well as several other members of the cult, are shown leaving the church without any mining gear.

Eh not at all good as the first
12 September 2019 | by chaosrachel-95190See all my reviews

Usually as sequels tend to go, the first is always better, and in this case it's really really really true. Plot what plot?? The movie really tried to tie in the previous storyline but fell completely flat, trying to cash in more on the franchise. The only thing making it somewhat watchable is the awesome visuals and Sean Bean with Kit Harington, before they even worked together on Game of Thrones.
