Trivia

In July 2016, it was announced that Kiefer Sutherland, who starred in the original, would return in the new film. Sutherland later disclosed that he was reprising his role from the original film, adding that the new film is actually a sequel rather than a remake. Despite the announcement, Sutherland played a character with a different name than in the original, with no reference to the specific events of the previous film. See more »

Goofs

When Courtney went in for flatlines, she mentioned no metal allowed inside the room as the scanner contains magnet but there are laptops, and mobile phones and other medical equipment which can be attracted by a strong magnet. See more »

In Scotland we call this "pish"
1 October 2017 | by scotrepSee all my reviews

Terrible. Acting was OK but bordered on comical. Not scary at all and second part was a bit loose.

Could have been darker with more urgency but flapped around quite a bit. The ending was boring as hell and didn't seem to convey anything.

Should've got to see Kingsman instead.
