Wolf Creek 2 (2014) Review:

With its very impressive and extremely bloody opening scene, Wolf Creek 2 sets the tone straight away. It is the exact same thing as Wolf Creek, expect better!

The story, for example, is similar to the first movie, except with a lot more characters, more locations, a good diversity of vehicles and lots of cool weapons involved. Because of that, this sequel ends up being a lot more entertaining than the (rather repetitive) original. The villain is the exact same, and once more accounts for a great part of the movie’s greatness. His attitudes with his sick laugh and maniacal smile are worthy of some of the greatest slasher.

The tension, so characteristic of the first Wolf Creek, is intact here. Thereee is even a subtle comedy touch here and there that lightens up things in between two pursuits. The actions scenes are ultra-violent, with many gory kills, lots of close-ups and tons of atrocities. The special effects and the work done on the wounds are very impressive too. If it wasn’t for the very awkward CGI kangaroo scene, I would say that I was impressed!

But again, just like in the first movie, the problem here is the behavior of the victims, especially the first few ones. They keep doing such silly things that you actually wish that they get caught. The same goes for the pursuits, which most of the time do not make sense as an old truck turns out to be faster than a brand new Jeep.

To conclude, this sequel is very similar to the original, except slightly improved on pretty much every point, which compensates for the absence of originality. It is a good survival movie which flirts with torture porn at times…but has so much more to give. I much say that I really liked that one, and I would recommend it to those who liked modern splatters such as House of 1000 Corpses or Hatcher
