Trivia

In the opening scene with the two policemen, a partially deteriorated billboard reading "Golden Fleece" can be seen by the highway. Golden Fleece is an actual name of several companies in Australia. See more »

Goofs

The road signs displayed near the beginning of the movie, when they fail to be picked up by Mick, show Derby and Halls Creek behind them connecting with National Highway 1 with Port Hedland and Perth to the left and Kununurra and Darwin to the Right. This is Geographically impossible as halls creek is on National Highway 1. Also Derby is located on the Western side of National Highway 1 which means that Port Hedland and Perth are to the Right and Kununurra and Darwin are to the Left. Also a road distance marker is shown as Mick drives away showing "D 130" meaning that Darwin is 130Km away, assuming they are at the turn off to Derby then Darwin is actually 1700km away. See more »

Good - nothing more, nothing less
22 February 2014 | by mitchw-61-305942See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed Wolf Creek. All elements of film making seemed to work, for me. I like realism in films and the sense of isolation in the Australian outback was palpable. After viewing the trailer for Wolf Creek 2 I thought that the film might fall into the Hollywood category. What I was hoping for was another gem.

John Jarratt returns as serial killer Mick Taylor. He delivers another strong performance. His laugh and hoarse, Aussie voice never falter. He gets totally into character and runs the show. He has too much screen time, however, to make him as scary as he should be. The viewer is given too much knowledge of his whereabouts, I felt.

The actors who play the tourists are good, notably Ryan Corr, playing well-educated British traveler, Paul. The film doesn't provide much insight into his character which might be the reason why I had little empathy for him, or any of Mick's victims in this film. Towards the end I was routing for the tourists solely because as the viewer we have witnessed the hell their put through. For whatever reason, I really liked the characters in the first film and it was hard to watch them meet their fate.

The sense of isolation is there but doesn't have the same effect as it did in the first film, probably because there are a few more characters in this film, and other devices used to create action, which made the film appear less chilling and more thrilling.

I liked that McLean used subtitles for the German couple because I wasn't expecting it. Of course English isn't always going to be a tourists first language and they're not going to speak it for our benefit. Fret not, once the screaming begins you don't have to do a lot of reading.

Some parts of the film felt a little odd to me at first, and there are a couple of comical sequences. I took it in the movie's stride. Perhaps that was writer number 2, Aaron Sterns, input. I didn't mind. There was enough Mick Taylor sadism to pull me back to the horror film I went in to watch. The setting at the end was a little disappointing because it felt too orchestrated and unlike Mick Taylor. It felt more like a scene from 'Hostel'.

The first film is a rare beauty, and Wolf Creek 2 is a good sequel - nothing more, nothing less IMO.
