This one, while also written by Leigh Whannell, just wasn’t quite as good as the first one. It’s more disturbing for the sake of being disturbing, dark for the sake of being dark, and the story just isn’t quite as interesting.
I’ll give it one thing, though — the twist at the very end was pretty good. Not entirely unexpected or unpredictable, but well timed and well placed.
It doesn’t make me hopeful for the next 5 films, though. Well, I guess we’ll see next week!
