I really wanted to like this and was waiting years for the sequel.
There isnt much I can say but the new characters arent a patch on the originals especially the male lead.
The story was poor and as it seems to be an asian production the martial arts nonsense was added to cater for the Indonesian audience and I note that the two main actors from THE RAID are in this as well.
I see some reviewers think the martial arts was good - IT WASN'T , it was terrible - just watch the first scene with the guy and the tree, false punches that never land and the guy from the raid whose knife spin almost fails but they kept it in the film lol
Sadly the special effects and decent CGI don't make a movie and it isnt a patch on the excellent low budget original even though they had more money to use in the sequel.
Its still worth a watch, its not that cringeworthy as some may suggest and is above average but it isn't what we were all waiting for.
Its also not fair to give the movie very very low marks as it is better than a lot of the rubbish out there like ARRIVAL that is so over-rated its just not true - It will pass a Friday evening and satisfy most Scifi buffs with its CGI and creature effects, the violence is quite gory in parts and it is a 6/10 for me - just slightly above average!
As an aside:-
Check out all the shill reviewers - so easy to spot.
I dont know why imdb cannot weed em out.
They either just have one review under their belt or two.
Reviewed the movie before its release.
Just joined a month after the movie is released.
The most telling is for example user marian_the_nightman OR jemmaclemens whose every single review is given 10/10 - so obvious its sad that these shills still have their accounts.
