7/10: A Half-Baked Sequel With Some Surprises
Tuesday, September 7, 2021

The message in co-writer & director Rodo Sayagues' above-average sequel "Don't Breathe 2" is don't mess with a blind man. Stephen Lang reprises his memorable role as the indestructible Norman Nordstrom, the blind homeowner in Fede Alvarez's "Don't Breathe" (2016), and he is the only character from the original movie. This gruesome, heavy-handed, far-fetched follow-up must have been a nightmare for its focus group. Nobody remotely qualifies as a role model in the macabre Fede Alvarez & Rodo Sayagues screenplay. Unfortunately, this violent, gritty, nail-biting suspense thriller lacks the infinite imagination of its frightening, claustrophobic predecessor. Indeed, the blind guy in "Don't Breathe" was a murderer, a kidnapper, and a rapist. Although hardly a poster boy for any cause, Nordstrom's zeal for revenge motivated his behavior. Not only had a reckless motorist killed his daughter in a car accident, but her lawyer also had used loophole in the law to...

5/10: Don't Breathe 2
Thursday, August 19, 2021

The first film was a big hit scary movie, I saw the trailer for the sequel, and I was intrigued how it was going to play out, it got mixed reviews from critics, but I wanted to make my own mind up. Basically, it has been eight years since the previous events, former Navy Seal Norman Nordstrom aka The Blind Man (Avatar's Stephen Lang) lives in relative solitude in an isolated cabin in the suburbs of Detroit with his Rottweiler, Shadow. He has since taken in and raised orphaned eleven-year-old girl Phoenix (Madelyn Grace), telling her that her mother died in a house fire. The Blind Man's only connection with society is supplies dropped off by his friend, former Army Ranger Hernandez (Stephanie Arcila). She convinces the Blind Man to allow Phoenix to join her on a trip to town so that she can have some time out of the house. While running errands together, Hernandez...

I wanted to like it more but I couldn't. Let's say it was really good idea, main plot might be very interesting to watch but then... Timing and plot jumps made it more comedy than a horror movie. It had so many unrealistic timing scenes that I couldn't even count on my fingers. Starting from the beginning when the real father somehow been at burnt place at the same time as his daughter. Then scenes with shooting, fighting,the same guy operating girl that was shown on TV,electric turned off at exactly moment, wheelchair moving... I had to even check if that wasn't fantasy movie. Another bad thing about this movie was scenes without logic. When this blind guy told girl to hide in a box? Like what? Hide in a box where encounters can drown or shoot you through those holes... Electric wires never touches water even considering girl going under and above in...

8/10: From Villain To Hero
Sunday, August 15, 2021

I saw "Don't Breathe 2", starring Stephen Lang-Mortal Engines, Conan the Barbarian_2011; Madelyn Grace-Grey's Anatomy_tv, Z Nation_tv and Brendan Sexton 3-Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Seven Psychopaths.This is a sequel to the 2016 hit but with a difference. Stephen was a villain in the first movie but more of a hero in this one. It takes place several years after the first movie and Stephen is raising an orphaned girl, Madelyn-she even calls him dad. She survived a house fire and Stephen is a little over protective of her, even home schooling her-big difference from his persona in the last movie. Brendan plays the leader of a gang that breaks into Stephen's house and Stephen has to show them what a blind man can do. There are a few twists-one involving an organ stealing doctor on the run from the police-that make things interesting and you...

8/10: This expose documents why no one in their right mind
Tuesday, August 24, 2021

would ever set foot in the U. S. "city" of Detroit. DON'T BREATHE 2 illustrates why someone walking down a Motor City sidewalk with a small cooler is more than likely a courier transporting a vital bodily organ stolen from a freshly-murdered corpse intended for a back alley transplant operation to be performed by a defrocked surgeon without the benefit of any anaesthesia, nurses, medical monitors or basic hygiene. This film recounts how arson has replaced baseball as Motown's main municipal pastime, given that most of the DFD personnel have quit in recent years due to the chronic lack of bath tissue at their stations. Detroit's police chiefs always are more interested in making personal gubernatorial runs than in solving homicides, so this blighted region perennially vies with Mexico for having the distinction of the lowest conviction rate for murderers in the known world. DON'T BREATHE 2 is not exaggerating a single bit as it...
