Alfred the Great torrent reviews
(de) wrote: Birdemic 2 is an almost carbon copy of the first movie. The first 10 minutes are an almost shot-for-shot remake with new characters. The plot is similarly slow and meandering (same environmental message). Somehow, the sound design hasn't improved an iota, even with a substantially larger budget. This begs the question: is director/producer/writer James Nguyen aware of how bad the first movie was, and was he deliberately plagiarizing himself to make more money, or is it not possible for him to make movies in any other way? Indeed, isn't the quintessence of so many bad movies complete unoriginality? We'll have to wait for Birdemic 3 to know for certain; in the meantime, there's still plenty of cringe to enjoy/suffer through in this unoriginal sequel.

(nl) wrote: Here is a film that truly can not decide what type of comedy it wants be. Much of the plot and what is evident in Neeson's role is of a dark humor, subtle mentality. Yet the style of the film is far too outspoken for such a role. Sandra Bullock's love interest character is way too perky and inexplicably added to the plot, the criminal characters are too genre to be considered subtle, and the slapstick ending is completely inconsistent. There is some good humor in this throughout, but not thoroughly across the board. Plus, the style of the film is almost pretentious, loud though it tries to be subtle.
