Hostel Part II Movie Review

Three American college students (Lauren German, Heather Matarazzo, and Bijou Phillips) are on a European trip when they meet Axelle (Vera Jordanova), a young lady who persuades them to take a detour on their trip. As fate would have it, their new friend isn't quite as kind as she appears to be, and the girls soon find themselves kidnapped and auctioned off to the highest bidding member of The Elite Hunting Club, a group of millionaires who pay to torture and kill people. If this sounds familiar, probably saw the first Hostel film. The sequel is almost the exact same movie, only the male victims are changed to female victims. The only question is...just HOW violent and bloody will this one be?

The scythe's the limit

Mercifully, the sequel moves at a faster pace than the original and the characters are a bit more likable--most unfortunately, the dialogue is just as mind numbing and the story itself fairly uninteresting. Also, much like in the first film, the final act of the film is bloody, brutal, and delivers a fairly decent ending (the final few seconds notwithstanding). If you've seen Hostel and enjoyed it, it's worth watching Hostel II--it's practically the same film, only a little better.
