Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie, it was a bit more interesting the first one. I was disappointed that Jay Hernandez gets killed right away, but it also it makes sense since no witnesses/survivors can be left or else the whole operation is at risk.

What really put a new light in the movie were the two male characters who are new to the club. There we get to see two different characters at play, one who is eager to taste evil and one who has to be dragged into the situation. The one who is eager has fantasies of how killing somebody will make him gain a characteristic that will intimidate others, a characteristic that does not need to be mentioned yet perceptible. What he fails to consider is that the characteristic that he years for, might not come from killing an innocent and defenseless victim, or killing without need or killing out of curiosity. The other clients of the club are truly evil, they indulge in their dark pastime as the goal, for pleasure, and that is how and why they can kill not only without remorse but with pure pleasure. At the end I did feel sorry for him, very little effort was needed (even a simple matter of just sit and wait) to complete his contract and he would have survived.

For Stuart, the character who has to be dragged into the situation, on the other hand, he does not want to be "that guy" yet slowly but surely when presented with the proper opportunities and motivations, he turns out to embrace the darkness and evil. Stuart's repressions and frustrations come to surface and he will project them into anybody who is in front of him. His transformation from the hesitant/undecided guy is extreme and very convincing. This also left me thinking about his friend, maybe his friend couldn't transform because he did not have any repressions or frustration.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbox quality is great, but the movie is terrible January 6, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I have our computer hooked up with a DVI-to-HDMI cable, and the quality of Amazon Unbox is suprprisingly good. It's almost indistinguishable from DVD quality except in a few rare cases of very high-speed camera pans where it is just a little staggered. The quality of this movie is no different, and the contrast of the dark settings is outstanding on Unbox.

Unfortunately that technology is wasted on Hostel Part 2. I like Roth's film "Cabin Fever". It was a creative film with a gritty plot line and a creative use of special effects. Hostel Part 2 really boils down to nothing more than "how creative can we be about torture" and "how stupid and obvious can we make the ending". I decided to see the movie because Eli Roth's promotion of the movie when it was realeased talked about the incredible ending. I love a good twist ending ("The Prestige" was one of my favorites for good endings), but this one was way too obvious. I won't spoil it, but it's not even worth the $4 rental fee.

The attempted creative use of torture winds up losing all creativity. It is obvious that the writers and directors were trying to be clever, but all you wind up seeing is their attempted cleverness regardless of the fact that it adds nothing to the plot.

If you want a good horror movie, try the remake of Halloween, 28 Weeks Later, or even Saw 4 (not the best, but at least it has a plot...). Save your money and avoid this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars disturbingly pathetic January 7, 2008
Format:DVD
I don't know which is worse. Wanting to see this because I thought Hostel really touched on some ideas which had rich subplots to them, which could be carried on into other films of this genre perhaps, or wondering if Eli Roth, as self centered and ego driven as he is, was hoping that perhaps he would find a bit of charisma, chemistry, cohesion, character or hmmm, I don't know, perhaps something tangible in all of this, and we are left with nothing but a purposeless redundant look at a really horrific script with dry humor that bordered on revolting and cliched nuances that deeply moved me to actually think about turning it off, which I have never done since walking out of Spaced Invaders. I didn't care one iota about the girls in the movie, in fact I was hoping they would be killed.

Eli Roth said this in an interview: "Yeah man, I'm f***ing psyched. I honestly think that no matter what other movie comes out this summer -- no matter what their budget is -- nothing will even come close to the kind of ending we have in Hostel 2. I think it's one of the most shocking endings people have ever seen in a mainstream horror film. I think this is the movie where people are going to come out of it going, 'I can't even believe someone just did that."

I can't believe it was so bad. The ending was juvenile, pompous and actually funny. If you are into gore, lots of it, (well at least in one scene which personally I turned from the screen which was a first in my movie loving life), and like movies with no depth and equally no brain, then I can see why this would be right up your alley. Eli has talent and this was no shining example of what his potential is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hostility On The Screen June 28, 2011
Format:DVD
For those of you who loved the original, Hostel 2 is definitely a worthy sequel. If you are like me & weren't particularly crazy about the first one, you might still enjoy it. I waited for DVD on this one & actually watched it twice on the same day.

I don't know where to begin on this one. For so many different reasons, Hostel 2 was a vast improvement over the first & I could easily watch it again. Roth had a great premise the first time around but really delivered the goods this time such as atmosphere, character development, & I like the overall flow much better. Lastly, the casting is damned near perfect. The leads work well together but I had to give Roth props for giving us the cameo appearance of Deodato as the Italian cannibal. Top notch!

In addition to really giving us more insight on the main characters, Hostel 2 also sheds more the light on the underground torture ring. It wopuld seems things have changed a bit since Paxton (Jay Hernandez) escaped. Now they have cameras in every torture cell & the entire Slovakian factory is not as easy to access. This time around, bids are placed worldwide for the soon-to-be tortured Americans which is a interesting twist as well.

Naturally, Hostel 2 does deliver the violence & gore as one would hope but the first forty minutes or so focus more on the developement of three college girls taking a trip to Prague & simply wanting to escape the encroachment of obnoxious guys on the train & elsewhere. What makes the sequel even more intriguing would be grand focus also on the two businessmen who have just shelled out thousands of dollars to shed some innocent blood. We eventually find out which one is the real monster when it comes time to kill the young women.
