Bad storyline, worse acting
Hound Hunter | Kenna, WV | 12/22/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)
"The storyline was weak, the acting was worse.
I hadn't seen part 1 since I was a kid, I ordered both the original and part 2. We watched the original Sunday and my wife an I enjoyed it. We watched Part 2 on Wednesday, and both were rolling our eyes throughout.
The actor portraying Billy did a poor job. It is obvious that he is not a dog person, or was over acting.
The story line left a lot of holes, kind of like reading the back cover of a book instead of reading the book. Not many exciting moments throughout.
Overall the acting was overdone and no character really captured you attention.
Overall it was a feeble attempt to capture the basics of the first movie that clearly missed the mark."
