I was really looking forward to this flick. Wolf Creek was excellent and in my excitement, I forgot about sequels not being as good as the original (except in very rare cases) and my expectations were unjustly high. I had nowhere to go but down but that's my fault. The flick is fine, a must see for any self respecting horror fan. How could you pass up the opportunity to see some more Mick? In the first one, the bulk of the action revolved around 1 set of friends. Here, there are more unrelated people that are 'Micked' so the tension and suspense isn't as consistent or sustained throughout as the original. Once we get to the main protag, it settles on a decent level of tension throughout. There is a lot of atmosphere, in terms of the setting and use of rich horror visuals, once you arrive in Mick's lair. As usual, the outback is awesome. Rent it and just adjust your expectations as it is a sequel.
let's talk about the wrong place and the wrong time! The second Wolf Creek movie based on a true story (could be). this time the focus is more on the villain, Mick Taylor, talk about super Australian patriot. He seems to bear a grudge against anyone who is not Australian. We also focus more on one victim who after Mick has done in a couple of German tourists, poor British Paul (played so very well by Ryan Corr) is tortured and tormented for what seems like ages. There are a few other incidental victims here and there but the adversarial relationship between Mick(too true seemingly played by John Jarratt). There is more tension ans suspense and more psychology in this one, much more than the first one. A very good follow up and worth a look if this is your genre.
You need to see part one before renting or buying part two... Part one is VERY good, scary would be an understatement... This sequel was just as scary but not in the same way. One main character in part two, where there is three in part one. I still say watch both movies bc if you like horror, this will be one you like.
If you love blood and limbs lying around than this is for you, if not just close your eyes throughout the movie first class viewing all the way. Now if you blink you might or might not miss something good, suspense is fantastic right from the beginning, seeing is believing now this man is very short tempered so don't upset him by all means, he has got a job to do and that is make a mess and the more mess the better, to bad for the victims and the cleaners who have got to clean up after him. Story is fabulous actors did a marvellous job of dying with a little bit of fate they wont meet him again. Really I did enjoy this show so I'm rating this an A grade plus for the suspense and fabulous ideas on how to kill people when they are a pain in the butt. I felt sorry for some of the victims but not saying a word in case he hears me. I wouldn't let young children watch it because it's a bit rough. Story goes that some travellers get lost in the desert and seek help?. That is an no, no. So not to turn you off your tea I will say no more and let you decide for yourself after you gather up the popcorn and movie and get ready for a great night in with brilliant entertainment that you wont forget in a hurry. Enjoy!
I hate to admit that I was a little disappointed when I saw the film. I'm a great fan of Greg McLean, John Jarratt and the first film. I mean the opening sequence was so cool that you have to see it to believe it, but that was it. It's always dangerous to open a film with a big bang, because 'most of the time what follows can't deliver, as it was the case here. After the big opener it was same old, same old like part one. There was a fun scene between Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) and Paul Hammersmith (Ryan Corr) during the infamous Aussie quiz sequence but to have two highlights during a running time of 106 min. is a little lame. Mick Taylor, one of the most iconic villains in recent film history should have deserved a far better sequel than this.
This second installment kicks off with our villain Mick getting a speeding ticket out of his usual neck of the woods and comes out blazing with a sniper kill right off the bat. Mick is at it again and this time its a new set of backpackers that cross his path. The tension and kills are all white-knuckle moments that will leave you gasping. This sequel was even more brutal and fast paced than the first. If you like straight-forward thrillers or slashers I would highly suggest this film. It left me shocked and saying wow.
Even after having bought and seen the first of this "mini series" of Wolf Creek, I was more, much more, surprised at the content of this one, Wolf Creek 2. I think that the movie has gone over the top in portraying what is supposed to be a movie based on a true event. I live here in the Northern Territory, as the crow flies, not all that far from the scene of the crime, Wolf Creek. Don't get me wrong, I do recall the "true story" actual event. A series of crimes of this nature really did happen. However, the films hierarchy have taken it upon themselves to upgrade this event to something of an impossibility. You see, the actual event was similar (in some ways) to that portrayed in this movie as well as the first movie. Both of these movies lead the viewer to ask, "How could so many people disappear and die without the culprit being caught?" The scale of death and destruction depicted in the two movies is NOT reality. It has been made this way as a huge attention getter. In truth, I loved the first movie and definitely loved this one. If horror is your scene, then I know you will be happy with this movie. Go and get it,,,,,but, DO NOT SHOW IT TO YOUR KIDS.
