Psychotic killer or flawed saviour?
Don't Breathe 2 (2021): NO SPOILERSThis action horror thriller comes to theatres today! They added the "action" genre title to the film and with good reason. It's nearly non stop.Once again, written by Fede Alvarez & Rodo Sayagues. However the directing duties were passed from Alvarez to Sayagues for the sequel.I really enjoyed the first film. Scored it a 7.2. I found this one to be even better.It takes place years after the first movie ends. Antihero Norman/the Blind Man (Stephen Lang), living in a different house than in the first film, has taken in a young girl, Phoenix (Madelyn Grace), who is orphaned due to a house fire. He raises her as his own, teaches her how to defend herself and at the same time is very protective. Not allowing much freedom. She's homeschooled and rarely permitted to leave the house or go into town.When a gang of degenerate thugs attempt to break in and kidnap Phoenix, Norman is forced to defend his home and his so called daughter. The blind war veteran may look harmless but I assure you he's far from it.Stephen Lang plays the role to perfection. Madelyn Grace is also great. The sequel is much more gruesome and gory than its predecessor. With way more nail biting action and suspense, the storyline and character development unfortunately suffer in return. However I was entertained throughout, couldn't quite figure out how it would end and loved where the writers took us.The antagonists, including the leader of the group Raylan (Brendan Sexton III), feel hollow and meaningless. I guess that's expected at times where characters quickly become casualties. Even Phoenix could've had more backstory. Yet the fast paced hardcore action and plethora of thrills definitely make up for the simple storyline and poor character development. We can't have it all I suppose.It's graphically intense. I really enjoyed this film and definitely think it's worth the price of admission. I thought the third act was hella wicked.Psychotic killer or flawed saviour?Thanks for tuning in8/10.
A genuinely disturbing thriller
Foregoing the iconic turkey baster, "Don't Breathe 2" is immediately a less disgusting film than its predecessor - that said, it is by no means any less disturbing. Directed and written by Rodo Sayagues, with a writer's credit also from Fede Alvarez, director of the first "Don't Breathe," this sequel seems to have some competency to it right from the start. The initial opening sequence looks great, and sets the stage for some truly tense filmmaking. Echoing Fede's style, Rodo crafts scenarios that will have you on the edge of your seat - coupled with Stephen Lang's dedicated performance, you've got yourself a sequel that is just as thrilling as the original.Following Stephen Lang as the blind Norman, "Don't Breathe 2" introduces a new character: Madelyn Grace as Phoenix. Seemingly Norman's daughter, Phoenix spends her days homeschooled by Norman, as well as being trained in the skills of survival. And as fate would have it, these skills seemingly come in handy as, one night, a group of armed men break into Norman's house with one goal in mind - to kidnap the little girl who lives with him. Enter some white-knuckle filmmaking. Rodo takes pages off of Fede's book and utilizes a free flowing camera during this sequence, along with a sparsity of music, that truly works wonders in sending shivers down your spine. My eyes were glued to the screen during this sequence as the camera followed little Phoenix as she ran, crawled, and fought to stay away from her attackers. Similarly, as Norman put his particular set of skills to work in dispatching the men who have begun hunting him, Rodo handles most of the action uniquely with some expectation-subverting moments that were a joy to watch unfold.By all intents and purposes, you'll think that "Don't Breathe 2," at least on a technical level, is on par with the first. That is, until something happens that starts to make it even better. What makes this movie so interesting and watchable is that, almost constantly, the lines between good and evil are blurred; just when you think someone is doing the right thing, albeit through the wrong way, or when you think that a specific character is a "good" guy, Rodo pulls the rug right out from under you. There are truly disturbing, borderline sickening concepts and scenarios introduced in this movie, including a "twist" that had me legitimately shocked and appalled, in the best way possible. Rodo put some balls on this movie - he isn't afraid to challenge his audience, which I respected.Truth be told, from a purely entertainment based rating scale, I enjoyed "Don't Breathe 2" more than the first. That said, from a script perspective, there is some truly awful dialogue here. There's no easy way to say this so I'll just rip the bandaid off: The writing in this movie isn't great. Yes, the scenarios, sequences, and concepts are very clever and disturbing, but the dialogue glueing them together is as poor as poor can be. Stellar lines such as, "Enough of these silly games," and "You're a bad man. You've done terrible things. At least, that's what you tell yourself," will grace your ears; you may even wish to be blind yourself while watching just so you don't have to see the actors deliver them. However, because of how entertaining the movie is from a horror/thriller point of view, it's easy to overlook the laughable dialogue.Look, when I go to see a thriller I want to be thrilled, and "Don't Breathe 2" did, indeed, thrill me. It isn't the best written movie out there, but it's packed with enough suspense and violence to warrant a night out at the movies.
An entertaining (but unnecessary) sequel
I love the first film, it was a huge surprise but I always thought this sequel was unnecessary and after I watched it I felt I was right.Don't Breathe 2 is enjoyable, interesting, has a couple of nice twists but didn't surprise me. There's a lack of tension because the "old man" looks to be immortal and everytime he's in danger, we know he's going to survive.I can divide it in two parts: even being enjoyable, the first half is quite predictable, but the second half is a thrilling and unexpected trip.I mean, this sequel isn't bad but also hasn't the ingredients that made Don't Breathe (2016) a surprisingly and intense film.
