Expectations of the first 'The Cell' make this one EVEN WORSE
5 June 2009 | by colin-vwSee all my reviews

This movie is awful. If you saw The Cell and were thinking 'Wow AWESOME, gimme more of this', then please don't go see this movie.

In the 'first' movie (I'm starting to think that the relation between the two is nothing more than the name and the first two shots of the second one) the dream scape was immersing, creative and beautiful, sometimes in a creepy way. In The Cell 2, the dream scape is just a cheap effect, a few squiggly lines at the edges of the screen. Story-wise, it lacks any continuity. Instead of having to be suspended in the air, hooked up to some extreme high tech system in weird suites, the main character is half awake while in the back of a plane, holding a personal item of someone involved. Somehow, they took that awesome dreamsurfing equipment and made it some bluetooth dongle stuck to her head. Furthermore, The shots look cheap, as do the sets. The tactics used by the police or swat are not remotely realistic, and quite frankly, make them look like a fart of the antagonist could blow them away. Now all of this would not be ultimate game-breaking stuff, but i just saw The Cell 1 only two hours ago and was hoping for some more psychedelic-dreamy-crime-horror-thriller-sexy-chicks(lopez) movie, but instead, I got ' a shot at the big-time '

Not every director has a huge budget, and there's nothing wrong with that, but somehow this director acquired a ' The Cell ' license and then ran out of money. Now there will never be a The Cell 3. Thx Tim Iacofano.
