Nick Stahl is good as the leading man, a young security guard who has experienced a tragic car accident. The accident kills his fiancee, but he is brought back to life by paramedics. His wealthy father (William Katt) gives him a security job at the Mayflower, a large building that he owns, hoping that he can get back on his feet and put the tragedy behind him. Once he begins working, however, he begins to have visions of a ghost girl in the mirrors of the building's basement, and with the help of the girl's sister (Emmanuel Vaugier), they search for clues as to what happened to her.
The film pulls no punches; it is exactly what you would expect, which is a combination of "Stir Of Echoes" and the first "Mirrors." The film is graphic at times, but does not rack up a huge body count. Christy Romano, the girl from Kim Possible, appears in the film also, and she is....shall we say...all grown up now. All in all, a formulaic but entertaining film, and something about it just draws you in. I found myself engaged until the film's ending. 3.5 stars.
I'll give the movie three stars because of Nick Stahl.
I really liked him in T3 and it's kind of sad to see him wasting his time on movies like this.
I sort of enjoyed the first Mirrors.
So I was curious what they would do with this one.
Well...the FX are decent.
Nick is good.
There are a few decent scares in the beginning.
The music is done well.
The first Mirrors was good but was it good enough to warrant a sequel?
I'll have to say no.
The gore was phony and total over kill.
The senseless nudity which sorry adds nothing to the film.
The story line dissolved into complete rubbish by the end of the movie.
It was watchable but I can see why it didn't make it to theaters.
I'll recommend a rental to anyone who loved the first one or people like me who can't help but watch a train wreck once in a while.
I hope the souls trapped in the mirrors have enough sense to do away with anyone who tries to make a third movie.
Also a puzzling plot hole. One of the potential victims apparently had nothing to do with the revenge plot---so why is the vengeful spirit after him?
Fans of the original may be disappointed but it's decent enough.
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.
This 1.78:1 on a single layered blu ray disc is direct to video. I usually have reservations about direct-to-video movies, with the exception of Tinker Bell movies. But this one was a pleasant surprise. The picture looked very good in HD, with good contrasts and inky black. There were quite a few scary and violent scenes, right from the beginning, and it was an enjoyable movie. The subtitles were placed where the person speaking was located. (3.5/5)
The bonus here is a second movie (standard version) "Into The Mirror", the Korean original from which the first "Mirror" was made. I normally preferred the original Japanese or Korean versions, usually more creepy and gory, like Ringu (for The Ring) and the Grudge. But I was disappointed with the Korean's original version "Into The Mirror". The male actor was a popular actor in Korea, but the story was not scary, more like a detective story. (2.5/5)
The DTS-HD Master Audio was adequate with lots of work-out for the subwoofers. Dialogue was clear. (3.5/5)
Mirrors 2 (Unrated) was not a bad scary horror movie, even though it was a low-budget direct-to-video one. There were many violent and bloody scenes, with nudity...definitely for adults only. I did learn something from this movie..."Spectrophobia" for fear of mirrors. If you like to be scared, give this movie a try. Recommended.
