A dreadful, massive disappointment.

After the pleasantly surprising first picture, I expected an even better second outing, but what I got was a film too stupid for its own good, with annoying side character's and outlandish, very silly moments that make the first picture seem like a documentary. Aside from one neat, well-choreographed battle sequence and a good central performance from the returning Vegar Hoel (Martin), the film is a mess. This time the jokes are way off, I didn't laugh and found some of the violence reprehensible and pointless, for example there's one scene where The Nazi loses his arm, Martin's car goes off the road and he wakes up in a hospital, with his arm reattached only it's not his, and during an escape from the hospital he kills a young child by accident and tries to see if he's breathing, gut's spray the screen and you see the child motionless and ripped open, I'm guessing this was an attempt at humour, but it was distasteful and unfunny.

They try to include a more advanced story this time, using a plot device that shows the Zombie's main objective and what they really wanted, which was not the gold, but it's tacked on and forced and really pointless. Whenever a horror or comedy film works really well, there's usually a sequel, one that never feels anything but disappointing, and here we are, but somehow this one is awful. The new character's, Monica, Daniel and Blake are nerds with irritating personalities, one of them continuously references Star Wars and at one point says "May the force be with you", now is this meant to be a badass zombie picture or a nerd's round up point, the screenwriters seem to be mistaken as there's nothing cool about this gory nerd-fest. There's plenty of unnecessary carnage too where the zombies storm into a peaceful town and butcher families who were merely living in the wrong town at the wrong time, now the film think's this is entertaining but It's actually repulsive because it's not necessarily a fight, but a massacre that never needed to happen.

Other problems include terrible dialogue, predictable, lame clichés and a lot of dreadful camera-work from Tommy Wirkola who at times makes the violence look incoherent. The thing that really sealed the nail in the coffin was the ending though; which has Martin digging up his dead girlfriend, so he can resurrect her, and have sex with her in the back of a car whilst Bonnie Tyler's Total eclipse of the heart play's in the background, over the top and disgusting even for a zombie picture, and it was not funny, it was cringeworthily bad and summed up the film as a whole, stupid, pointless and a massive, dreary disappointment. Dead Snow 2 is so awful, it has put me off ever seeing the third one, when it eventually comes out, and I can tell, they will make up another ridiculous story to keep this franchise running.

Improves on the first

"Zombis Nazis 2" is a highly entertaining, tongue-in-cheek, silly, over the top splatter which pays homage to movies like "Evil Dead" while keeping its own personality. Only some problems of pace and some decisions over a couple of characters (as the cringe-worthy at moments Glenn) let the movie down.

Even if you haven't watched the first one, "Zombies Nazis 2" brings you up to pace pretty fast: Martin and friends went to have a crazy weekend at a cabin, but some zombies, which were also Nazis, decided to kill them all. Martin was the only survivor (minus right arm) and he is happy to have come out alive. However, things get complicated again pretty fast: he is suspect of the deaths of his friends and detained. And the zombies are not happy with just getting their gold back.

Cue lots of splatter, blood, silly, but very silly humor (again, sometimes a little bit cringe-worthy) and a very on your face approach to the proceedings. Wirkola does a great job in keeping everything going on (even if the pace suffers at moments, specially with the apparition of the Zombie Squad and the side quest to find the Russians), putting a joke when we are starting to get tired of so many guts flying around. The actors do a great job, jumping into the proceedings with glee and probably a good stock of clothing. The camera-work and the use of locations has improved and it seems the budget was way higher this time around. All in all it makes for a good 90 minutes.

"Zombis Nazis 2" will be enjoyed by fans of the genre. If it could have had a better rhythm...

Dead Snow 2: The Sequel We Deserved

Dead Snow was quite a good zombie film. It had a certain, modern low budget Evil Dead feel to it, with its blend of serious thrills and sprinkle of dark humor. It was a quick, fun, zombie film to watch with friends that delivered on the gore and action sequences. This was enough for me to want to watch its sequel directly after.

Dead Snow 2 took me by surprise, building on its predecessor and completely surpassing it - which is what any good sequel should do. However, this is not just a good sequel, it is a great sequel, an awesome, totally irreverent comedy, horror, action film.

Continuing immediately after the first film, our main protagonist is immediately thrown into the deep end. The film doesn't stop there, but goes completely all out by turning up on the crazy awesome factor by giving him powers through a zombie arm. If at this point you think this sounds idiotic and unbearable, then don't watch the movie. If you think this sounds idiotic and interesting, go ahead and proceed with watching it. You will not be disappointed with the course this movie takes.

Along with the protagonist from the original film, comes new, clichéd, but enjoyable characters that really add to the humor in the film. We have a bunch of zombie slaying nerds from the USA, a sloppy and idiotic cop and his men, a homose...I mean heterosexual museum attendant, a zombie sidekick and of course, the Nazi zombie army. All have their great scenes and lines to deliver throughout the movie, living up to the B-movie level of craziness in the same vein as the Evil Dead 2.

So the plot and characters are all interesting and add to the overall quality of the film, but what really makes this film what it is, is the action scenes. Irreverent, bloody, vicious and hilarious, the creators have really pumped up the action in this movie, delivering on what all zombie movies should have - unique, gory, over-the-top kills, and this movie has it in spades.I laughed too many times throughout as some of the coolest, most inventive kills took place in front of my eyes, where absolutely nothing was sacred. Nobody was excluded from the rampage of the Nazi zombies as they tore through men, women and children to reach the inevitable climax to end all the craziness. Not only is it all good fun, but the filmmakers also made sure everything looked really good. The practical effects were all really well done, from the thick, splattering blood, to the explosions of grenades and tank shells. The zombies themselves looked really cool, the unique ones all having their own look. This is one of those films where you can tell everyone was having a great time and doing really great work because of it.

Overall, if you're a fan of zombie films, watch it. If you're a fan of dark, irreverent comedy, watch it. If you're easily offended by perverse, non-politically correct content, avoid at all cost so you don't ruin this for others. If you're not though, you're gonna have an absolute blast.

Dead Snow 2 is awesome. It builds off the first one and catapults itself into unique territory to stand apart from other zombie films. It's violent, hilarious and a quick 1 hour and 40 minutes, that caps off with a great ending. I want a Dead Snow 3, but honestly, this movie ends in a way where we don't need one, because it's already a perfectly fine way to finish it all off.

Dead Snow 2 is the sequel fans of the original deserved.

8/10. A must watch for all zombie film enthusiasts.
