User Reviews

 
As good as the 1st one, if not better.
13 December 2015 | by subratjain1See all my reviews

Parasyte: Part 1 came as a surprise to me, a pleasant one I must say. The whole concept might seem awry to some, and the poster doesn't help with that.

Anyway,I watched the first one because of a good rating and had to watch part 2 consequently.

It picks up right where the 1st part ends with the ever evolving duo of Shinchi & Migi trying to find a way to end the parasyte menace. At this point I must mention that the action is not as fast and frequent in this installment and it proceeds at a slower pace. But what I really liked about this was the dialogues between different entities. The justification given by Parasytes (both Tamia and others), humans and Migi+Shinchi for their survival was just amazing. It sets a really dark undertone for the film and makes you question whether humans really are the most superior race and do they really deserve to dominate the planet. The special effects are really good and most scenes stand out visually.

The only disappointments were the abrupt end to the final showdown between Shinchi and the 5 in 1 parasyte and the sappy lesson at the end saying human spirit can conquer everything.

Needless to say if you have watched the 1st part and enjoyed it watch this one without any hesitations. It will enthrall and entertain you for sure.
