If this premise sounds familiar, it is because it's been done to death by Hollywood, but this film does cover this territory very well. It's a combination of Final Destination and the original White Noise. While not as violent as FD or as clever and jolting as WN1, this film is good and stands on its own two legs rather than just being a sequel that repeats its predecessor or a sequel that literally continues the story. This is a sequel in name only; it does rely on ideas that come from that WN1, but it goes off in its own direction. I guess the "2" to a popular film is liable to get it more noticed, although I think it could have been titled something else.
In any event, after a near-death experience in which a man loses his family he is plagued by horrifying images of potential deaths that he discovers he can prevent if he acts soon enough. The acting is surprisingly good for a small film and the effects can be quite jarring at times. I thought the plot was clever and the direction was competent and appropriately paced.
This is a good chiller for a rainy afternoon and okay for the whole family (if they are into thrillers).
"White Noise 2" (Also known as "White Noise The Light") however, stands alone with little connection to the first movie "White Noise".
Nathan Fillion leads the cast as Abe Dale and accomplishes something rarely seen in a move of this genre, a connection with the characters. You're instantly drawn into Abe's world, and when he suffers a tragic and seemingly pointless loss, you can't help but feel for him. We see a more vulnerable character from Nathan Fillion than we have seen before and he expresses Abe's loss in such a way that is truly believable.
Katee Sackhoff, as Sherry, brings a degree of warmth and joy to what could otherwise be a somewhat dark experience and the dynamic between Nathan and Katee works exceptionally well.
Anyone who is a fan of either Nathan Fillion or Katee Sackhoff is sure to be as impressed with this film as I have been.
Props to Patrick Lussier who brings out the best in a sequel to a movie that was considered by many to be a disappointing experience.
White Noise 2 does continue the EVP concept, but now adds near death experience to the mix. I thought White Noise 2 had a pretty decent idea and some elements work and others seem to lack. Writer Matt Venne actually writes a pretty decent script. I sort of see this movie as a White Noise meets The Dead Zone. Instead of a man with psychic visions the lead character sees a white light and that's how he knows who is in danger. Matt Venne doesn't really bring us anything exactly new to this genre, but he does write a script that does have some creative moments. This movie is a little smarter than most people would think. White Noise 2 is very much a character driven movie rather than action and Venne does a good job.
Director Patrick Lussier does a good job at brining everything to life. There are moments where the pacing might be a little on the slow side, but he always manages to keep things from getting too slow. Though there are moments where the pacing was a little too slow. There is little to no scares. If you've seen enough horror movies the scares are quite predictable, but there is some decent tension.Read more ›
