Just one year for the sequel? Seems they planned it with the egg. Or planted it with the egg. See what I did there? ;)
Anthony Crenna, Debra Karr, Ennio Girolami... just gotta drop some names here, albeit potentially unknown to most, but it's good to see some familiar faces here with the first and last (and only two) at least, and it would've been nice if Debra Karr managed to star in at least a few more movies too.
Got a little more closure with this one, even though the big bad villain still roams, and the radioactive barrels feel like a repeat on the same old story as last time around.
There's a lot of flashbacks too, a toy crocodile clearly splashing between real takes, people who jump into the water when the boat shakes a little, a surfer who can't put down his sail to save his drowning girlfriend...
There's a lot of overly dramatic and/or fake stuff like that going on, and the soundtrack's if possible even more Jaw-like this time around, but when it's over... enjoyed it after all.
It may have been a repeat on a cliche already, but I feel like I got the closure I needed this time. They got the girls too. And a bit more authentic bickering and dialog all around... sort of.
It feels simpler, and slightly less exotic with how the scenery shifts for the bigger city, but also maybe for the same reason a little bit more real.
Would've been cool with a third one too though...
rated 3/5: not bad
