Like the first movie, I didn't find too much bad about the sequel. It kept my interest til the end but, sadly, this movie was uninspired and fell flat on delivering the thrill and chills that a Japanese horror film story would. The look of the ghosts was horrible(just grease paint and actors trying to look scary), nothing like the first film. In this film, they are flickering tv images. No spooky looking ghosts here, folks. I thought we'd get treated to some good special features, at least, but all we get are commentary, two deleted scenes and a quick look at Pulse 3. After this movie, I'm not so sure I'll be returning for the third installment. We'll wait and see.
The only thing I can suggest is you rent this one. To buy? well- if it's cheap in a bargain bin somewhere....but I wouldn't pay full price for this. While it was a decent for a low budget movie, it didn't WOW me like the first one did.
The movie orinigally follows Michelle, Stephens dead ex-wife. If you can't pick up on the fact that shes dead 4 minutes into the movie, the rest of it will be a rollercoaster thrill ride.
The filomography is very, very strange. I almost hazard to guess the did 5/6ths of it with CGI, painting in backgronuds for sets that they should've easily been able to get or build. Either that, or they have some new funky camera setup I've not encountered before.
The acting is the only thing that brought this up to two stars. Stephen and Michelle had decent players that could carry an otherwise bad script, and several of the sceen actors and extras were also rather good. While several scenes are odd to begin with, they make more sense once you know they're dead. There are a couple absolute dog scenes, but only one grauitous nudity scene, which, considering thats how movies like this make up their bottom line, seemed to show a suprising amount of restraint.
Special effects were nonexistant, and papered over from the original movie. There were a few half decent startles, but don't waste more than a rental fee.
anyone who says otherwise, is either a cape, yes man, or a closet fecal-philiac (affinity for turds).. who doesn't know any better.
Pulse 2 is a sequel..
Do you know what creates a sequel in the horror movie genre. Very simple. Someone reboots the same stupidity that started the first horror movie.
In this sequel it's obvious. Forget the green screens for a moment and let's look at just a small bit of the screenplay/plot - well there isn't one really.
1) The lead actor has a dead wife. This dead wife per se, wants to unite with her "live" child. (but with the girl's poor acting skills - you'd think she's dead to begin with)..
2) The lead male finds his child alive while the dead mom is running down ETERNAL FLIGHTS of steps from her apt. to get to them before they drive off. - Yet she can flash move down steps in to get to her victims in a blink of an eye. Specifically the chick the lead male actor has an affair with.
3) The lead and child flee to an outpost in the woods where they are checked for "markings" before they are admitted in. Yet there he has this big as(*( COMPUTER that he bought with him.
4)The lead's girlfriend shows up later, and tries to have sex in the middle of this crisis. (Great timing).. when GUESS WHAT?? That's right, friends and neighbors - THE COMPUTER COMES ON..
4a) They both stare at it like Dumb and Dumber wondering "How did that happen?" The lead goes to turn it off, walking VEEEERRRRRY SLOOOOOOOOOWLY toward it.. and he gets ready to hit the off button.. The girlfriend stops him..Read more ›

Didn't understand most of it, only towards the ending was really good but it looks like the movie was broken into pieces and they put any part together hoping it would fit.Published on March 21, 2014 by Gracie
If you seen the 1st one, skip this one and the 3rd one. There is nothing good to see from them at all. They both were horrible and boring. Read morePublished on May 22, 2013 by nolaboy2003
