2 Lava 2 Lantula! (2016)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Actor star Colton West (Steve Guttenberg) is on the set of his latest movie when his daughter is attacked by the giant lava spiders. West and Marty (Michael Winslow) must race there to try and save her as well as the rest of the world as these spiders are much bigger and much more damaging.

2 LAVA 2 LANTULA! just doesn't work. I will gladly admit that I enjoyed the first film as it was rather fun considering what it was. With that said, this sequel here is pretty darn lazy from start to finish and whatever entertainment the first picture had is certainly missing with this sequel. The biggestproblem is that the film really doesn't know what it wants to do. At times it's a straight monster movie and at other times they have it being so campy but these camp moments are more annoying than anything else.

Guttenberg was a lot of fun in the first movie but here they've got him over-acting so much that you can't help but not enjoy the performance. For some reason his line delivery is constantly changing as sometimes he speaks normal and other times he's way over the top with the macho guy routine. He does get to team up with POLICE ACADEMY co-stars Winslow and Marion Ramsey again so fans of that series will enjoy that.

The special effects are pretty much what you'd expect from a SyFy movie. The spiders here are mildly entertaining but there's no question that this sequel just feels rushed and it's rather annoying. It's really too bad because I enjoyed the first film but the spoofs and campy just doesn't work this time out.
