I guess the best thing we can say about Quarantine 2:Terminal is that at least it isn't a direct remake of [REC2]. The producers went their own way with the material, and for that they get kudos. That's not to say that there's nothing else good about Q2, because it wasn't all that bad.
Beginning sometime directly after the events of Quarantine, Q2 is the story of a late night flight and a little stowaway virus that wreaks havoc on the passengers. I guess you could technically say the virus is airborne at this point, right? Heh. Yeah.
The plane is nearly empty save for a fat guy who needs two seats, a tough as nails kid who is tough enough to fly all by himself, an annoying young couple in love, some hot stewardesses, and a sweet as pie scientist, who just so happens to have a cage full of hamsters with him... now guess which one is responsible for dooming them all with the virus? If you said the fat guy, you're wrong. Sure, fatties are to blame for most pandemics, and his burly ass does get sick here first, but for me it's the hamsters. They're filthy little creatures, and I don't trust them. I never have.
After team hungry goes on his infected rampage up and down the aisle way, they land at the closest airport, and hide in the baggage area until help arrives. Little do they know that when help arrives, they will be...QUARANTINED (part 2)! Much as you'd expect, everyone spends the rest of the movie running around in a panic, glaring at each other suspiciously, and dying.
Q2 was not as good as Q1, which was certainly no [REC], which it was a direct remake of. What in the hell does that even mean? Well at its essence, it means stick with [REC] and [REC2], which are much better films. To a lesser extent, it means that Quarantine 2 wasn't bad, but it was no Quarantine. which was no [REC]... eh, you get the point.
Q2 didn't have the same feel as its predecessor did, and that's due mainly to the fact that the shaky POV camera style of the first movie (as well as the [REC] films) was absent. Looking like a "regular" movie made it feel less regurgitated in a way, although the jarring POV style does bring with it a certain amount of tension, and a fair amount of scares. It wasn't the biggest deal in the world, it was just different. I'm analyzing this movie way too much.
The Master Says- C In all fairness, Q2 is about as good as a direct to DVD movie can hope to be these days, though it does have its faults. It's fairly predictable, it's not all that creepy, though it has moments of decent tension throughout, and the acting is less than stellar. Still, it's a decent direct to DVD sequel, and even has a decent ending. If you're down with the whole infected/zombie sub-genre, then by all means check this one out. You might just have fun with it.
Final Thoughts- She's in this. Meow.
