A woman (Danielle Harris) returns to the Louisiana swamps to seek revenge against a maniacal killer (Kane Hodder).
" More funhouse than grindhouse, this unrated horror-comedy has its D-grade charms thanks to its killer cast. "
" The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement. "
" Suffers from lamentable acting, murky cinematography and, for the most part, lamely unfunny dialogue. "
" There are many good movies opening this weekend. Hatchet II is not one of them. Tickets are not cheap and time is fleeting. Why would you choose this one? "
" By the time Crowley begins literally ripping Marybeth's posse apart, one is too numbed-out to cheer the gruesome ingenuity of the old-school special effects. Die, Victor, die. Please. "
" It's a functional sequel, but with all that spirited slicing and dicing, the director could have at least broken a sweat. "
" Writer-director Adam Green offers another super-sized dose of bone-shattering, blood-splattering mayhem. "
" Say a prayer that there's no Hatchet III in the future. "
" We don't care about any of the characters. They're just video game obstacles to be dispatched as graphically as possible. "
" The movie is just inept and dull and stupid -- crap being passed off as a guilty, bloody pleasure. "
" The movie is never as cheeky or as fun as Green thinks it is, but he tries with all his might. "
" This is basically an excuse to watch skulls crushed like melons, guts ripped from body cavities and torsos halved. And such things go on with relentless and disgusting regularity. "
" Swift and amusingly brainless, Hatchet II more than delivers on splatter expectations. "
