First movie was pretty good.
Didn't even hear about SST2 until I saw it at the video store. It was always out of stock(rented) So I though damn it must be good so I finnaly went to Walmart and blew $16 on it...about what they were given to make it.
Turning the second movie it into a horror movie...which gave it a better chance of making some money. If they threw some boobs in here and there like they did in SST1 and by looks of the trailer they are. They should make some money back on the 3rd installment.
Is it just me or does Richo look like he's on acid in all the shots??
Is it just me or does Reco look like hes on acid???
The general internet consensus is that it's direct to video, but I seem to remember that they mentioned a theatrical release when the first announced it. That might have changed once they actually saw the movie.
I think Van Dien is acting that way because while the first movie may have tried to be serious, this one has embraced the over the top military attitude. He seems to act very exaggerated John Wayne-like. I think this one will include more humor compared to the first one if anything subtle humor (didn't see the second one). They are embracing the humor of the series and incorporating it as part of the movie.
