Especially when I saw that the film stars Emily Browning, and Xavier Samuel... Cam Gigandet, Dawn Olivieri, Thomas Dekker, and Frances Fisher were less important for the decision to watch it. The beginning of the movie looked promising with the excellent photography and very strong music back up... but very soon I understood that was the best part of the film! Brother - sister singing combination was great until the brother died from overdose. After losing him, rising rock star Hayley finds herself in a downward spiral. The second album from her band Plush is disastrous and had nothing good written about it by the critics. Of course, there is a new guy and she finds new hope and friendship in Enzo, the replacement guitarist who inspires her to reach new creative heights. Sadly, their collaboration crosses the line sexually and Hayley, who is married with two children, tries to retreat from Enzo's advances. Because of that, Hayley will soon discovers Enzo's dark and troubled history... it was almost too late when she realizes she may have let a madman into her home and that her mistake may cost the lives of people closest to her. What I think about this movie after watching it? I wish, I could do something better with my time. I do not think that anyone involved in this movie was committed fully and followed through with the courage of its convictions, with, maybe, exception of the director of photography Daniel Moder. It was watchable, but the twists were quite annoying and didn't leave any impression. No feelings, no passion, no real skill for story detailing... on the other hand, the details of the cinematography were overwhelming, so the story and the cinematography were in odds most of the time. Watch only if you run out of movies and there is a long night ahead!

It almost hurt to watch it in places. Most of the acting was forced and did not seem at all natural. I was disappointed to say the least. Even my fave actress let me down.

But worse, this paranoid male chauvinist persecution fantasy features what surely must be among the most annoying and least likely dialogue (and sequence of events) in cinematic history.

Jack Palance's incomprehensibly silly, but off the chain, line is the only really good thing about this garbage; well, other than Angelina Jolie at her total hottest ever as a jailbait cyborg. I remember this coming out back in the day, but I never got around to renting it. Upon viewing it recently, I can only say: "gross." The movie opens with some raspy Jack Palance narration, as he explains that cyborgs have replaced humans in almost every way in the service industry: from garbage men to sex workers. There are two corporations, a Japanese one and another one called Pinwheel, Only, the Pinwheel dudes are the baddies, and they're creating a beautiful cyborg that looks like Angelina Jolie to go to Tokyo, infiltrate the rival corporation, and blow herself (and it) up. The problem is, she falls in love with Elias Koteas, and the two run off together. As you can imagine, the pair are subsequently hunted down from all sides. 'Cyborg 2' is easily one of the worst movies I've seen in awhile. It was reeeealllllly hard to sit through all at once, and that's saying a lot, considering I watched crap like 'Film Geek' and 'G.I. Executioner' in one sitting. I think this just goes to show that less is really more where these types of movies are concerned. Albert Pyun's original masterpiece dismissed all pretentions to being a cerebral character study of what it means to be human through the locus of an android/cyborg, and gave us 88 minutes of drive in B movie fun: lots of ass kicking, corny dialog, cheesy 80s synth score, and Van Damme splits. 'Cyborg 2' seems to have a more thought-out plot, but just bores the viewer to tears. I felt like the makers decided to throw in some stock footage from the first one and just call this a sequel, because it has nothing else to do with it plotwise, I've already mentioned how Angelina Jolie is a total jailbait hottie here (yes, we get to see her 18 year old boobies, and they're spectacular); her co-stars didn't fare too well, aside from Koteas. I'm a big fan of Elias Koteas, perhaps best known as Casey Jones from the TMNT franchise- but who I loved best in the first 'Prophecy film.' He was pretty solid, as always. He didn't have too much to work with, his role essentially being a human martial arts instructor who falls for Jolie and helps her escape from the Pinwheel corporation. To his credit, Koteas took a role which was, more or less, a poor man's Van Damme, and made it somewhat interesting. But just barely. The rest of the cast was non-existent, The Pinwheel pin-heads didn't do shit most of the pic- the only interesting thing they did was at the beginning, when they're watching one of their female cyborgs have sex, and they detonate the bomb they put inside of her: "cyborg stew," one of 'em quips. Jack Palance- who was pretty much cashing a paycheck or doing a favor for his key grip nephew- was just some lips on a monitor screen until the last five minutes, when he shows up ready to dine with the devil with a looonnng spoon as the cyborg Mercy. Billy Drago didn't help matters by looking so disgusting and doing his best Skeletor/Joker/over-the-top generic villain impression. Drago was supposed to be the main villain, and he even has a couple of badly directed fight scenes with Koteas. The problem is, no matter how gross and "scary" Drago tries to be by peeling off his skin or throwing bad punches and kicks, he's no Fender. Truly a waste of celluloid. This ultimately comes off as a messy cross between wannabe Wiilliam Gibson cyberpunk and late night Skinemax soft porn. Save yourself the rental price and just throw Albert Pyun's 'Nemesis' or the classic original into the DVD player again.

Toshi T (us) wrote: Simply divine. Outrageous slaughterhouse sequence, with its overflow of blood and confession, suggests imprinting of Fassbinder's soul in celluloid. General tone is that of overwhelming despair of the evils of the world (capitalism, fascism, war, etc.) and self (desire, madness, betrayal, etc.) staged in one astonishing sequence after another--like the Jerry Lewis one! Love it or hate it (see the divided reviews below), it's a f*cking work of art.

Joo P (br) wrote: I had not seen something this inventive in a long time. Jonze handles the story marvelously, providing a great balance between the comedic, the sad and the bizarre. It may not be able to maintain its splendor through the entire run time, but it is a very entertaining and unique story!
Rosie F (jp) wrote: I think it was a good film because you get more insight into the human form of Pinhead and what led him down his dark path, but the way they tried creating the whole "daddy issues" thing with the lead actress was rediculous lolYep. The plot needed a bit of work that's for sure.We even get to see "footage" of counselling sessions Kirsty Cotton had divulging her knowledge of the box. That was a nice touch.They picked the wrong chic to be the lead actress here - shoulda gone with the night club owners girlfriend.At least SHE had character and attitude.I'm afraid the new girl on the block was far too willowy and weak for my liking. She did not have the fiery spirit of Kirsty Cotton! It's a watchable film don't get me wrong just be aware that you may end up watching a Hellraiser movie that still has that Hellraiser vibe going on, but they clearly were aiming to "reboot" it for a new look.
Don S (fr) wrote: A slasher movie twisting the friendly Tooth Fairy into a wretched "witch" who steals the teeth and souls of children. If you find that concept exciting, you will enjoy this much more than I did. The "witch" carries a hatchet and dismembers adults and children alike. The blood/gore is fairly high in this one. The story is ridiculous, the acting is merely standard, and the direction is choppy and misguided. If you are going to call her a witch, give her supernatural powers or occult ties, not a hatchet and penchant for blood-letting.
