After the summer camp massacre the Polish police force goes in to investigate only to become terrorised by a new mutant.
There was no need for this sequel. I enjoyed the first film to a point it did not set the world on fire and had a fair number of issues but it had its moments, this on the other hand runs out of steam after about an hour and then you are just left with its rather obvious efforts to kill time.
Continuing on the theme of things no one asked for this film diverts attention away from the big battle of the third act by having a mutant romance and sex scene. Now who thought this was a good idea? To have the cops basically defeated within the second act was a terrible decision, it then left a huge gap that needed to be filled in the film’s run time and this is what they did with it for reasons known only to those that made this film. Not only does this romance arc drag on but it amounts to nothing. Making matters worse it runs out of time before it can give us the showdown between the special forces and the mutants the whole film has been teasing out, instead just showing the special forces capturing them. To say it is anticlimactic is an understatement.
Hopefully this series is dead and there won’t be a third film.
Overall, whoever decided to include the mutant romance single handily derailed this film.
The opening is neat
The first act has promise
The battle scene is over too quickly and at the wrong part of the film
The terrible romance plot
An underwhelming ending
