Gore vs. quality
Wow, I was amazed how bad this movie was. I mean part 1 wasn't a classic,
but it was still a good sci-fi movie. But this one...
The actors were all absolutely useless because it seems that none of them
really acted. I've rarely seen actors who look so bored on screen. The
screenplay was a joke because the story was crap and the logical faults
quite obvious (it was interesting to see that alien kids are born with
clothes on and I asked myself things like: Why must Eve be prevented to see
men in reality when she can see them on TV? Was the security in the
laboratory really so bad that a woman can just run outside? And can you
really learn driving by watching 'Dukes of Hazzard'?)
The editing was awful, the directing painful and when take all that away
what is left: right, just the gore, the amazing splatter effects. Well,
seen a lot of films were people are killed in very anatomic ways but here
wasn't only very disgusting but also totally senseless. You could hear the
director saying: 'Yeah, let's throw some more blood on the screen, so they
can't see the holes in the script!'
And must the end really have been? Must they really leave the door open for
another one? I really hope not.
