Movie Review Don’t Breathe 2 English Review 1

The story of Fede lvarez and Rodo Sayagas sounds exciting on paper, especially when compared to the events of the first film. The screenplay by Fed Alvarez and Rodo Sayagas is interesting, but only in parts. Some of the scenes are extraordinary and add to the thrill. But the going-on tends to be repetitive and the second half is far from convincing. The dialogues are nothing special.

Rodeo Sayagüez’s direction is good but the writing disappoints. He knows the technique and how to add the necessary thrills. And in some scenes he shows his talent. However, the film has several shortcomings. To begin, don’t breathe in [2016]Norman was the antagonist. Audiences took root for the other three characters, not just him. Here, for the most part, viewers are expected to root for Norman. Knowing full well how evil he was in the first part, it would be difficult for many viewers to sympathize with him. Secondly, the first part is a bit repetitive and like the first part, once again trying to ward off blind intruders. The madness shifts to a new place in the second half, but then it becomes disjointed. And finally, Don’t Breathe 2 is full of violent and bloody scenes. The first part was not on the same lines and yet, it worked. But the excessive blood in DON’T BREATHE 2 feels wasteful and may disappoint a section of the audience.

DON’T BREATHE 2 starts off well as viewers become familiar with the changes in Norman’s life and the characters Phoenix and Hernandez. Not much time is wasted and soon there is a break-in at Norman’s house. Here are some impressive moments; The scene where Phoenix is ​​stuck in a mini container and how she comes out of it is nail-biting. But it also gives that there-there feel. There are some individualistic scenes in the second half which are different. But here, the movie is predictable and the motive behind the kidnapping of Phoenix’s real parents is pretty silly too. The film ends with a hint that there may be a third part as well.

Movie Review Don’t Breathe 2 English Review 2

Stephen Lang, as expected, rocks the show, and carries the film on his shoulders. Madeline Grace plays a difficult role with perfection. Brendan Sexton III as the gangster is fine. Stephanie Arsila does well in a small role. Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Josephine) makes an impression. Stephen Rodri (Surgeon) seemed like an important character, especially in the way he was introduced, but gets limited scope. Adam Young, Bobby Schofield, Roxie Williams and Christian Zagia are fine as gang leaders.

The music of Roke Banos adds to the thrill and drama. Pedro Luc’s cinematography is top class. The lensman impressed with his creative shot taking in the first part as well, and he does the same in the sequel. David Warren’s production design is authentic and creepy. The action is inexplicably violent and full of bloodshed. Jan Kovac’s editing is sharp.

Overall, DON’T BREATHE 2 is not as good as the first part and turns out to be disappointing due to similar plot points, predictable and disjointed script, and excessive bloodshed and gory in the first part as in the first.
