In Mirrors 2, the grisly slaughters continue after a young woman is brutally murdered in front of a mirror that is a portal to the world of the undead. Embarking on a murderous rampage, one by one she stalks the men and women responsible for her horrific death, exacting bloody revenge by dismembering and eviscerating the guilty. They can't run, they can't hide and they can't look in the mirror because inside the mirrors the dead live on...waiting for vengeance.
While not a direct follow-up to the 2008 shocker Mirrors, Mirrors 2 does indeed boast its share of evil, murderous mirrors. The kind that, when you stare into them, show you an image of yourself doing bloody deeds like chewing broken glass or committing a ritual disemboweling. Not pleasant, especially when the damage manifests itself for real. Said mirrors also add to the misery of an already wretched security guard, Max (Nick Stahl), who finds himself cursed with the ability to foresee these deadly encounters, which happen to his fellow employees at a new department store complex. Max is already having a tough time because his memories of a fatal car accident are a constant nightmare; that might explain why he looks so awful, and why the best he can do is a security guard job when his father (William Katt) actually owns the whole new development. Horror fans will not find much beyond this setup, as Max occasionally visits his shrink and sort of becomes a suspect in the rash of killings. The cast includes Christy Carlson Romano as an early victim and Emmanuelle Vaugier as the sister of a missing woman, but most of the movie is spent waiting around for the grotesque attacks--which do nothing to disrupt the overall tedium that prevails. --Robert Horton

Nick Stahl provides a well rounded performance as always but seems curiously absent from what one would assume to be a pivotal role in this film; in fact he's practically sidelined to a more supporting role of only minor consequence to the unfolding of the story.
The writers could have provided us with a far more plausible excuse to introduce one of the store's original mirrors such as a mirror that was part of a signature installation or architectural element that was iconic to the original NY store on 5th Ave.
Instead, they put a large plain mirror on a base and give us some nonsense about how famous their mirrors were and how well they were made or some such thing; sorry, this a not from the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, it's just a plain 'ole freakin mirror.
In a very loose and easy manner, they manage to make the film entertaining enough to keep you engaged but it sadly lacks the gut gripping atmospheric intensity, depth and dimension of the original story with Keifer Sutherland.
The storefront was rather strange, resembling the entrance to a museum rather than an upscale "boutique".
Now which is it, is the new Mayflower suppose to be a small intimate "boutique" or an upscale dept. store; there IS a difference; unfortunately the mirror, perhaps offended by certain acerbic remarks about "ample" size women, made the store Buyer it's first victim.
