A glorious Hollywood tradition, the picture which was a success among the masses and that could collect cash has all the chances to get a sequel. Well and if one of the characters of the first film in the full power of his lungs, screamed about that this story should get a sequel that she will definitely get. And not in five or ten years, as usually a exactly one year later. However the same the Hollywood tradition continue are usually worse than the original, but let's believe in the best. So, it — "Scream 2".
A year passed from the moment killer the mask was stopped. The residents of the glorious city of Woodsboro was able to finally recover and come to yourself. Gale Weathers managed to write another book about how she was able to stop a serial killer. In fact, the journalist even has a grain of truth here. it only forgot that without the help of Dewey and also Sydney it matter that failed. But it's Gail and she quickly forgets his old friends, especially if it prevents her career. But soon, the notorious journalist, yeah and others who are fortunate enough to survive the events of the first film are faced with one mA-and-vermillion a problem that is that the city announced the killer — a copycat. Again, twenty-five!
Essentially the continuation pattern does not seem far-fetched ears everything seems to logical. There appears character in the first film was listed as the killer of the mother of the main character. Here and killer who has a clear civic position, at least for killer. And everything those characters that was the first movie. Yeah and crew all of the exact same. It would seem that the film chances to build on the success of the original film, so and to remain in the minds and hearts of fans of horror films, but as usual, luck left the crew, and before the audience appeared a very ordinary sequel. But let's order.
And for the beginning of the story. He turned out to be quite strange, if not to say more because the main character of the film was not Sidney Prescott, a journalist Gale Weathers. Kraven, man, well, why you did it? It's one thing when you change the basic mechanics of film, and of murderers is not one usually a murderers are two people. Or when the main characters are teenagers with a fondness for horror films and despite his expertise in this matter, they are doing the same thing and the characters is up to them. But quite another to build the plot around the character, which is good if given half an hour of screen time. Yes, Sydney is now perceived more as a piano hives, , not as a living character. Director it gets only in those cases when it is necessary to kill someone from friends girls and show the actress is able to show believable emotion. But it's it still in the first film. And now I can empathize with the character if it not even trying to open up to the viewer, and goes the whole movie or lean face, either with bulging eyes? It is physically impossible! And that Gail has shown itself with the best hand. No, she all the same bitch that we remember to the first movie, but now it became and sacrifice for which is constantly hunting and it looking for someone can it will be taken care of. Well, do you really believe that rustic guy Dewey she needed what else in addition to breast protect "fragile" the girl from knife. I here for example, no life is not believe it. So the same puzzling effect "founding fathers" of Woodsboro, and also the omission of the Sheriff. If the first part is the killer trying to track down the calls and the city was the curfew, then the second part is nothing like and sight. Young people have fun and entertain our killer and it something few people killed! What same goes for the killer that describe it can be one word — predictability. The murders that makes maniac movie fans look bland and devoid of drive, as it was first picture. He always there is there where you waiting for him, but perhaps the worst in this situation is that minute to the thirtieth understand who is behind the mask of the Ghost. Why this could I guess it as a former Deputy Sheriff, the reporter, the main character of the first film, this is not understand — mystery million. But leave it it pills of stupidity. Well, why? No excuse is worse than "science", and maybe better.
Now that goes for actors. In General, young people cope with their roles quite well, for with some exceptions, but the movie has one small problem — characters in a lot the characters of most of the can not revealed. And say I can accuracy to say than just under the number one is different from the character in second in addition to the external data. And let the film of this genre is not so critical, but inability to empathize with the characters in the movie automatically makes them in the crowd, for the adventures of which especially do not follow.
To summarize, we can say that before us is an ordinary sequel to an excellent slashers. Here is a simple syuzhetets not the bad acting, the complete lack of music, good camera work and too tight chronometer. In principle, fans of horror will be satisfied. And as for the ordinary spectator, it from the same success as to look and skip this movie. In any case you nothing will lose.
