Short review. Mirrors 2 sucked.
Can I really properly review a film if I was a little distracted the whole time it was on and never actually paid much attention to it? I caught the end. It was just as uninteresting as the rest of the movie. Straight-to-video sequels don't always spell death for the movie, but in this case it does. Although the the kills are much more bloody and graphic than the first film, Mirrors 2 never expands on anything presented in Mirrors. The story is weak, the actors are boring, and the whole thing could have been an episode of Law and Order.
Here's an admission for you: I liked the first Mirrors. That's right, I said it. WHAT?! Actually, I really liked it the first couple of times I saw it, but on subsequent viewings it seems to fall flat. However, I am in love with Keifer Sutherland, as is anybody whose ever like, seen him in anything. He's amazing.
Remember how in Mirrors the evil spirits that lived in the mirrors were from that psycho little girl? Yeah, they totally forgot about that in the sequel. Those evil spirits went after pretty much anybody probably because they just could, but the Mirrors 2 spirit was only one woman taking revenge on the people responsible for her rape and murder and she somehow got into the mirrors. It really makes sense in a totally not at all kind of way.
The only thing I
And I'm still not a fan of Nick Stahl. Haven't seen him in anything yet that I've liked.
