The "Skulls" premise, based on well-established rumors and reports about Yale University's Skull & Bones Order, is a useful basis for a suspense movie. The 1st film was solid and featured quality actors and direction. This sequel has none of the same cast and was straight to video. It basically repeats the same plot theme of the 1st movie. This movie tries to be more racy than the first yet has weaker drama and dialogue. It was disappointing - perhaps someone will make a film about the real "Skulls" which would be MUCH more dark and suspenseful than the fictional "Skulls."

I was browsing through my rental place when I saw this dvd and decided to pick this up. The first Skulls had a good premise and a great cast (the ultra hot Leslie Bibb a extra plus to it) but this review isn't about that movie its about the sequel. The Skulls 2 has the same basic premise as the first one. Guy joins Skulls, guy sees wrong-doings by Skull members, guy gets set up by the Skulls, guy uses smarts to outwit Skull members all the while getting the girl. I hope I didn't spoil the movie for anyone by revealing the good guy winning. Like it would happen any other way anyways. This straight to video movie has an above average production and a nice cast. Robin Dunne is a good actor although I see him more as a tv actor than a movie actor. The pacing of the movie was great all the way until the end, which didn't seem like a climax to the film to me. More as if it just happened and then the film stopped. Secondary charecters which are prominant in the beginning have little to do with the end. All in all a good rental. See it if you liked the first one.

So, where should I go with this one? I am pretty sure that most can realize how bad of a film this was without needing me to spell it out for you, but then some of us do need guides, so here it goes. The Skulls II is a classic example of a movie company trying to monopolize on the semi-success of the original. Using the rules of low-budget sequel making, they get lesser-known actors to replace the better known actors from the original. They repeat several select scenes that resemble the original so that the audience doesn't get confused, while all the while continuing with a similar story from the original. At first glance, you may not realize that there is a difference between these two films outside of the grade D actors that are trying to make a name for themselves. When will Hollywood realize that they need to stop doing this? The original Skulls film was not a box-office sensation, so why suck even more money from an already dried well? Then to see that there is already another film released for those of us that are foaming at the mouth to get more of this secret society makes me sick. Why Hollywood, why?

Let me begin by getting the shredder out. The acting was horrible. I mean, I have seen some bad acting in many of the films that I have seen over the years, but that done by Robin Dunne and Nathan West was despicable. It was obvious from the opening sequence that they were more excited about being in a film than the overall quality of the film. This was not a good sign. The only successful task that these young actors did for me was taking me from minute zero to minute ninety-eight. The progressed the film, if that is what you want to call it. Of course, how can you act if you are handed shoddy material anyway?

First off, you can't really call this set a trilogy since its just a trio of movies whose only connection is The Skulls society. Secondly, with a minor exception of the original, the movies aren't really that good. I won't go into any details on the stories. Still, the price is cheap and the three discs take up as much space as one disc. Watch them on a rainy day or if you don't have nothing else to do.

If you've seen THE SKULLS, the first in this suspense trilogy, then you won't find too much new in this second entry. Once again, a naively innocent young man seeks initiation into this supersecret clan of collegiate powerhouses who demand secrecy in all they do. When a young girl is accidentally murdered and the crime covered up, our hero steps up to expose the organization, but not without resistance from the group. There's not a whole lot of suspense generated, with the outcome fairly predictable. Robin Dunne doesn't have the charismatic presence to command the movie and the supporting players don't fare much better, although Lindy Booth does well in the role of the innocent Kelly. This direct to video did well enough, though, that it spawned a third entry, this one with a girl trying to infiltrate the group.

...and that's saying alot.
The movie goes nowhere fast. With a plot as transparent as cellophane and a solidly second-string cast (couldn't they afford ANYONE we have heard of), the movie wastes our time with some serious implausibilities spliced together with laughable dialogue and a downright silly ending.
Did the producers really think that this film covered any new territory that the first missed? It seems that both are based on the same book. Now, I don't plan on reading said book anytime soon, but it seems to me that when you make a sequel, you might want to have a few original ideas to make the vehicle interesting. Just a suggestion...
