    Movie synopsis
    After a group of hapless National Guard troops fails a training exercise, their commanding officer (Flex Alexander, SNAKES ON A PLANE) orders them to deliver supplies to some scientists in Yuma Flats, New Mexico. The mutants from the first film (the unfortunate victims who live on nuclear testing ground) have returned to terrorize a group of Department of Defense researchers. The unlucky soldiers happen upon the remains of their camp (and its denizens), and the horrors begin. The inbred family of cannibals stalks the soldiers and picks them off, one by one, in gruesome fashion.Alejandre Aja (HIGH TENSION) directed the 2006 remake, but this sequel replaces Aja with Martin Weisz, whose first feature, ROHTENBERG, was banned in his native Germany. Written by genre master Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, THE HILLS HAVE EYES II is a sequel to the remake of Craven's original 1977 film. It's no coincidence that Craven changed this sequel's victims from a band of motorcyclists to a group of unlucky soldiers, giving the film political undertones. For a brief moment, this film addresses the idea that war may be the worst kind of horror, even when it's judged against mutant cannibals.

    They Haven't Seen Nothin' Yet !!!!

    "The Hills Have Eyes 2" (UNRATED) is the sequel to the remake that's surprisingly intelligent and original. It also lacks nothing in savagery; because Craven (who co-wrote and co-produced "Hills 2") and director Martin Weisz have new and different intentions.
    Taking a page from the "Aliens" playbook, the sequel is as much a military action film as a horror movie. "The Hills Have Eyes 2" picks up two years after its predecessor left off, focusing on the same patch of New Mexico desert where the family of the first film found themselves under siege by a gang of psychotic mutants. The filmmakers remind us that those mutants were mining families displaced and deformed by nuclear testing; now, the American military is setting up shop in the desert when the mutants emerge from their caves for another killing spree.
    Most of the movie's action focuses on a company of National Guardsmen on a training exercise before their presumed deployment overseas. They quickly discover that they are under-equipped in the face of the mutant threat, as the monsters kill off the soldiers one by one. The implication is that, the mutants are creations of our own government that have now turned against us, and part of the movie's impact grows out of the horror of this circumstance — a horror that goes deeper than expected from a conventional escapist thrill ride.
    As Craven did in "SCREAM"; saving the Horror Industry from its destructive self-demise; he breathes new life into the franchise, and the series' confrontational malevolence adds to the original critics "Hills Went To Far" critiques. THEY HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET !!
    Director Weisz, whose Grimm Love was so controversial that it was banned in his native Germany, takes to the Cravens' aggressive material like a severed head to a platter. Aside from developing the thematic ideas of Wes Craven's earlier work as a writer, producer, and director, "The Hills Have Eyes 2" is simply a terrific thrill ride, with the requisite gory set pieces and kinetic action sequences. Since Armed U.S. Soldiers simply don't seem as vulnerable as a suburban family, the movie can feel slightely less "impending helpless doom" but Weisz compensates for this with an expressive visual style in which the Widescreen Frame holds constant threats in the corners and shadows. He also does a nice job of creating tension in sequences that, frankly wouldn't be that scary.
    Most horror films rely on darkness for their effects, but like John Carpenter in his remake of "The Thing", Weisz often puts the most terrifying scenes right out in blindingly bright light making them all the more effective when he pulls them off.
    Whereas the "1st Movie" was ultimately the story of a bleeding-heart liberal who learned to embrace his inner avenger in order to defend his family, the sequel's sympathies lie with a soldier who explicitly states that he's for diplomacy over conflict.
    Of course, when it comes to fighting mutant rapists and killers, one does have to resort to some unseemly behavior in the end, but it's to Weisz and Cravens' credit that "The Hills Have Eyes 2" is ultimately a complex, nuanced commentary on its themes. It's also a kick-ass horror movie, and the combination of brute force and intelligence makes it a must-see for fans.
    SEE THIS !! Guaranteed Success for Craven fans !!!! Does Not Let Down !!

    The Hills Have Eyes 2

    This movie was not as good as the first movie. However, for a sequel, the movie was good. The best part about this movie is that national guard soldiers had to go into the caves to rescue their friend from the mutants. That was scary as they had little to no light to see what might be coming towards/behind them. Hills 2 was not as graphic as the 1st movie, but this movie is worthing watching and adding to your DVD collection.

    Not nearly as good as the remake or the originals.

    I'll admit, the remake of the original movie was good, but this one flat out blew. If they had stuck to the original script that they had planned, it would've been much better. Unfortunately, they made the Nat'l Guard look like total pansies and the story (or lack of it) was uninteresting. The characters were as flat as soda left in opened bottles for decades. No, they were much flatter. The gore was way more tame than in the remake. The death scenes were mediocre (you'd think they'd get more creative after the first movie).

    It's not a horrible movie. I've seen much worse. Watch on TV. Don't buy it. Unless you're a hardcore maniac. Like me.

    Gory unsurprising movie

    It is really difficult to make good movies this days. Most audiences want to be amazed when going into the movies. This will not happen with The Hills Have Eyes 2. You will get exactly what you see on the cover of the DVD. Gory scenes that lack any imagination. The end is just like the beginning of the movie, unimaginative and boring. Someone told me this movie was better than the first one, and they were correct. The first one is even worse.
    Obviously,this one leaves some room for another sequel.
    If you really want to see some gore and try to relax without thinking at all during a movie, THIS IS IT! This is the movie you need for this weekend.
    Definitely avoid buying it. It not even worth its shelf space.
    This is one of those movies where one dumb mistake leaves one body and then another mistake, and another, until it becomes clear that the characters in the movie should be one cell-per-brain individuals to make so many mistakes. Thats why you wont identify yourself with the terror of the movie, because you will be sure that you wont be that stupid.
    Oh, by the way, you wont get scared at all. I think Disney's Fantasia is more scary than this one.
