Back in the belly of the beast
THE DESCENT 2 is like FINAL DESTINATION 2 or WRONG TURN 2 or about 100 other horror sequels, in that we get more of the same and it’s usually not as good as the original. In this case, the editor of the first movie is the director of this one, and clearly wasn’t given the greatest script to work with. But he does about as good a job as anyone in his position probably could. A rescue party goes into the caves to find the missing girls from the first movie, and they drag a shell-shocked Sarah from the first movie along with them. We do not have to wait long for the cave creatures to show up and start eating the would-be rescuers. Since we have been through this once already, there is far less shock value this time around. There are, however, a couple of kick-ass fight scenes and the film is perhaps even bloodier than the original. Accents are all over the place, as it was filmed in England and not in Appalachia, where it is supposedly set. In truth, Part 2 is not a must-see unless you are dying to see what happened to Sarah.
shock is gone
Following the events of the first movie, Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) is taken to a hospital. She has memory loss. A rescue team searches the caves for the missing women. A dog tracks one of the woman to an abandoned unexplored mine. Sheriff Vaines (Gavan O’Herlihy) takes deputy Elen Rios, Sarah, three cavers, and old timer Ed Oswald down into the depths.
The horror of the cave dwellers is diminished this time around. They are no longer the surprise of the first movie. The first issue is Sarah’s position in the eyes of the law. At the hospital, she should be a suspect in murdering her companions. It would have been a more compelling position to put Sarah into. Once in the tunnels, the movie gets back into the claustrophobia which is so vital to the previous movie. There is one terrific section where a woman is trapped in a cave-in. One returning character is beyond belief. Overall, the shock is gone and this sequel fails to reach new depths.
