It is often said that trauma can lead to the difference in one's personality, attitude and overall views on health, but I have never seen anything so traumatic that Edward Carnby of Alone in the Dark would change nationalities. Yes the events from the first film directed by Uwe Boll were so devastating that Christian Slater morphed into Rick Yune (The Fast and The Furious, Die Another Day and Ninja Assassin) Well folks grab you PKGs, strap on your unleashed nuclear accelerator and get ready for some otherworldly events. This is Alone in the Dark 2.
There could be SPOILERS AHEAD!!!! Grab an umbrella!

We unfold our story with some action of lightning and thunder with a man and a woman dragging a second man from some unknown danger. Get this gang. No narrative. Then I had to check and found out Uwe Boll is only producing this one. Holy Celebrity Kids Batman! Our poor wounded fellow is Jason Connery! (Brotherhood of Blood, The Thirst: Blood War, Dr Who, Robin Hood (1986)) The man dragging him is Uwe Boll alumni actor Michael Pare' (Blood Rayne: Deliverance, Blood Rayne: The Third Reich, Komodo vs. Cobra, Red Serpent and Fate) and the lovely Natassia Malthe (Blood Rayne: Deliverance, Blood Rayne: The Third Reich, In The Name of the King 2, Skinwalkers and Bloodsuckers)
Quick bit of dialogue later the three decide that being out in the park forest may be a bad idea so they run to the men's commode where a drug pusher Xavier, is prepping his deliveries (Zach Ward of Titus, Postal, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Blood Rayne: Deliverance, Cold Case and Repo)

Now to get off track from the story I just cringed when I saw the directors and writers of this movie.

Now I'm totally confused. Except for the same title, what has this movie to do with the original masterpiece Alone in the Dark?

In record time, this movie introduces then quickly dispatches Jason Connery, Michael Pare, and Zack Ward while slowly introducing us to a swirly mess of tendrils that appear to be a witch no one wants to deal with. Huh?
For good measure, they also toss in fan favorites Danny Trejo and Lance Henriksen. Why? Why not. As long as they were in the mood to confuse............
The plot has something to do with an ugly dagger that inflicts anyone who touches it with a nasty complexion altering disease of sorts. There's a witch, a grudge, an old bargain, and the hunt for the witch's tomb. The main character from the first film, Edward Carnby, shows up in this one too but no one is supposed to notice he's now Asian. Sure, why not, makes perfect sense.

I found this sequel a tad on the dull side. It's not that it's a terrible film; it's just not terribly interesting. There seemed to be a huge disconnect between the witch and the dagger, which was supposed to be the villain of the piece? The dagger seemed to be causing all the harm. The witch was just this floaty thing that popped up from time to time, more a special effect than anything frightful.
Eh.

While I was disappointed in the lack of action sequences, I think that including even half of the action from the game would have taken away from the realism of the film, as mountains of action sequences work a lot better in a game than they do on film. The film opts for a quieter tone, and a much more thoughtful and introspective approach. I appreciated this a lot, as a fan of the game.
The movie is well made, and well thought out. I was not disappointed in this aspect. I have to bring to life the fact that Alone in the Dark is not an horror movie at heart. It is a mystery film with a few horror scenes and an interessting visual style.

This ended up being one of those BDs where the extras, Blu quality and franchise name almost push this into a four-star category, but everything else dragged it right back down. Though I should say fans of the numerous recognizable actors in this will end up wanting a copy - especially with the price this is being given away at.

The story was intermittent and the short shooting schedule showed through in virtually every sequence, but it is always fun to watch Lance, Trejo and Ralf do their thing. The picture quality is excellent, even with the ghost effects. The DTS gets used well with the action scenes, but the sound itself is poorly done (dialogue/voice editing mix mostly). The flashy filming gets irritating very quickly, but the Blu clarity is solid enough you can see the strobe lanterns (subbing for lightning) in all of the outdoor shots, so screening this in the store did nothing for generating buzz. The supplements have a few worthy notes, including:

* Making of, 15 minutes. Mixes cuts from the other supplement/interviews with non-narrated behind the scenes footage that gets dry pretty fast. This extra closes with a shot of the crew falling asleep on set - long days presumably.
* Cast interviews, 8 sit-downs totaling 24:12 minutes, play all option. I would recommend watching Ralf's only as he actually interviews quite well (that and Lance's best snippet is in the making of). Even if you are anti-Uwe Boll (most of this film's criticism is from his hate club) Ralf mentions his production ethic and other assorted goodies. But the classic moment is him mentioning a desire to work in theater; I have liked this guy going back to Gladiator so hope he gets his wish.
* Crew commentary.

No region coding shown, English SDH only and English 5.1 only.
