On the flipside, shit, it actually pains me to write this...
I pretty much loathed the rest of the film. The first 30 minutes of HATCHET II
bored me to tears. The drama was augmented and the Crowley back-story was expanded too
much for my liking... and the fact
that it took so long to vomit out didn't help its case either. But I survived
that and let it go. My main peeves had to do with the humor and the characters.
As we all know humor is highly subjective, you either connect with it or you
don't. I gelled with the yuk-yuks in the first HATCHET, here I wasn't so lucky.
moron characters spitting out "funny" stuff, that went over my head, grated the shit out of me. I didn't give a choco fudge about anybody in this picture
which is semi fine, its a slasher. But what brought the pain, was that I had to
endure this ANNOYING lot for way too long before they checked out. I wanted to
stab my ears with chop-sticks and quit meat...and I love steak! Colton Dunn as the forever wise cracking Vernon
was prime example of the latter point; for
Zeus sakes, kill me now man! That character drove me insane! He should've bought the farm and re-sold it 10 seconds in. But alas that was not the case. The augmentation of the supernatural angle didn't do it for me either, I wished Crowley and his raison d'etre
would have remained simple; sometimes less is more and that saying rang true in
this respect. And was it me or did the flick create a plot hole (as to HOW
Crowley "can" be put to death) by not following its own internal logic? The last
nail in the coffin was some of the acting which went from average to amateur
hour... but hey what do I know!
I'm actually bummed to write this review, I love HATCHET and dig Adam Green's filmmaker M.O. Taking an unrated flick out there and putting it all on the line for it has to be respected. But what can I say? Wasn't my bag. In the quest of giving us a bigger and badder HATCHET via this sequel, it got too bloated for me.. Sniffles...
