Movie Reviews

EDITED VERSION on VHS and DVD - MPAA Censors Return!
frankenberry | Los Angeles, CA USA | 01/02/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"HENRY 2 played UNRATED and UNCUT when it was first theatrically released. MPI decided to cut most of the violence and gore out to get an R-Rating for the video and DVD release and the results are less than thrilling. Every murder scene has been edited to the point where you see practically nothing (cutaways to the murderers' strained faces instead). The movie in it's original form was quite a strong and grim follow-up to the classic original, but this abbreviated edition is practically worthless. Maybe someday MPI will release the original uncut version, but I doubt it since most fans have already made up their minds that the movie sucks based only on seeing the edited version. The DVD does have a behind-the-scenes featurette that does show several clips from the film of the UNEDITED murder scenes with blood spurting everywhere....isn't it funny that they can get away with an R-rated video release as long as the gore scenes are an "extra" and not actually IN the film. What a crock. On top of it all, the DVD's audio is slightly out-of-sync throughout leaving this viewer in a daze."
Different actors + Director= Horrible

"Shouldn't even have "Henry" in the title. Whereas the first was original, shocking and brilliant, the sequel is merely a joke. I had a feeling it would not be any good before I rented it, but just had to see it being such a fan of the original. Don't waste your time because it is simply a bore. Watch the original again! I'm serious.In relation to this film: "It is not always differnt and not always the same.""

Lead is wrong

"Solid cast, with the exception of the lead. Rooker from the first one should have been back, as well as the original director and writer: John McNaughton and Richard Fire, respectively.
This director here doesn't seem to get suspense--and it hurt the film. There is just no beating the original. Too bad McNaughton and the rest from the first flick did not come back for an encore--because now, even if they did, it might be way too late.
It's kind of sad, because McNaughton might have had a far bigger/impressive film career if he had.

Skip this one. See the original (20 year anni issue, etc.). It will give you chills."
