First off, I have seen the 2007 Halloween, so I had a pretty good idea what to expect. In the 2007 movie, I thought the first 30 to 40 minutes of it, was good. The second half, just didn't make the cut.
So I went to this sequel with very low expectations, and I am thankful for that. Had I gone to see this movie with high hopes, I would have been disappointed.
The trailers try to build you up for this movie. I even tried to clear my head and push all the bad feelings I have, and tried to look at this as I do Halloween III, season off the witch. A different movie! It still didn't work because it just has too many plot holes. The violence, in my opinion makes it less scary. It does have some moments that make you jump.
If you have seen all the trailers, you pretty much have the movie figured out, and the ending will not come as that much of a shock too you.
Michael is violent, but just not that scary! Loomis shows no signs of any redeeming qualities, though he does have all the best lines. If played by anyone else, the part would not have been as intense.
I wasn't expecting much from this movie, so I was not disappointed. It was about a 'good' as I expected.
I give this movie a 2 out of 10, and that is being generous.
There you go, I seen it....and I didn't like it that much!
