    Director Roth has accomplished the near impossible with Hostel: Part II: He's crafted a vastly superior sequel to a film already considered something of a classic by genre aficionados, one that supersedes its predecessor's sadistic entertainment quotient by orders of magnitude while also upstaging its own outrageous gore effects with a script that's smart, vicious, and occasionally, gleefully subversive.
  2. 75
    It's also, in its sick, sick way, a real crowd-pleaser.
  3. Roth has managed the rare feat of actually improving on the original.

    Roth's slick shock-'em-up sequel is a dispiritingly traditional splat of gristly Grand Guignol. It's tooled up to outrage, but ultimately numbs rather than grips.
  5. 38
    A suspenseless rehash.
  6. You live in a free country, you put up with crud like Hostel Part II. It truly is crud, though.

I love all of Eli Roth's films and this was no exception. Two thumbs up. The script was as sharp as the knives featured in the film's notorious knife cutting scene (the scene where the people get cut with the knives). I laughed and cried and screamed because it was also scary as well as funny and sad. And Who can forget the scene with the bit where they rent out a room in the titular hostel. When I remember this scene I still get shivers, I was like, 'Don't rent that room in that hostel!' but then they rent the room in the hostel and its like, 'here we go again!' I regard Hostel 2 as Roth's best (controversial) but then again, I regard all his films as the best (gotcha!). A must see.

    p.s F*ck trees.

    A much sharper critique of American wealth at work in the wider world than most critics give Roth credit for.

    Urrggghhh!!! This movie was more like hokey Cabin Fever than the original. While it has the best torture scene of the two films, it really Urrggghhh!!! This movie was more like hokey Cabin Fever than the original. While it has the best torture scene of the two films, it really isn't a torture movie at all (very little happens in the way of torture???). I mean what if you went to see a cannibal movie and there is barely any cannibalism? I thought that was the hope Eli Roth offered with the first Hostel: a return to horror movie form. This was more like a revenge movie with bit of gore thrown in here and there. I wasn't bored by this movie, but I wasn't thrilled when I left the theatre either. Too bad. Expand

    I'm not sure if it was the all the hype the movie got, but the audience attending this movie wanted to see torture. Roth didn't I'm not sure if it was the all the hype the movie got, but the audience attending this movie wanted to see torture. Roth didn't show us more than one seen of torture, and the one he did show wasn't good. This movie didn't show nearly as much gore as the first one did, and it was much different than what i was expecting. Roth needs to go back to the style of the original if he makes a third. He needs to add more scares, intensity, and adrenaline throughout the movie. How ever it was a mediocre sequel with a few laughs, which is the only reason why I give it a 4. Expand
