A number of individuals simply assumed that this movie's Japanese title (translated into English) would be "Tokyo Ghoul 2", and that it would be directed by Kentarô Hagiwara, as it's a sequel to Tokyo Ghoul (2017), and that movie was directed by him; however, much to their chagrin, in April of 2019 both of these assumptions were revealed to be false.

The first Tokyo Ghoul was a very solid action/ horror flick. This one is utterly devoid of tension and interesting characterization and full of bits that make no sense, such as an enormous restraint of powers. Were there enormous budget problems? It seems to be actively avoiding any action, let alone the sharp action of the first. Throughout, everything screams "cheap."
Then there was the lack of emotional anything, strong characterization, a compelling plot . . . any music . . . really, this would've made one or two fine 20-minute episodes, but it definitely didn't have any movie material. And it was dull. Just a useless dull nothing of a half-baked film. I'll probably have forgotten it by tomorrow.
