RATING ( 4 / 5 )
This one picks up right where it left off. The cast pops with some side characters coming to the front of
After I’ve liked the first part, this puts it on again. In addition to many new scary scenes, the second movie also
The Movie begins where it left off. Collegian Tree Gelbman wakes up in horror to learn that she’s stuck in a parallel universe. Her boyfriend Carter is now with someone else, and her friends and fellow students seem to be completely different versions of themselves. When Tree discovers that Carter’s roommate has been altering time, she finds herself once again the target of a masked killer. When the psychopath starts to go after her inner circle, Tree soon realizes that she must die over and over again to save everyone.
As her mother dies in the first movie but in this,
This isn’t a horror movie, its a science fiction/comedy mashup with horror and romance elements thrown in. It not only works but it works so well that it rivals the first one in execution for me. They broaden the scope of the movie and it switches genres. I can’t think of another sequel (I’m sure there has been somewhere, I just can’t think of one off the top of my head) that boldly chooses to go in a completely different direction. It not only makes that choice but it succeeds at it completely. The best part is that 2U is that while it is inventive, it retains a lot of what worked previously. The sense of
The movie choosing to change things up was the biggest surprise but the wonderful development of the characters was just as impressive. Tree’s development into being a better person was a highlight of the original Happy Death Day, it added an interesting dynamic to the story. Tree continues to grow (no pun intended) and I have to hand it to writer/director Christopher Landon for developing the characters further with new aspects without just repeating the same arc. With Tree facing the same scenario but with many changes, the characters are the same yet completely different and it keeps things intriguing. While 2U was funny there were also some emotional moments that were very heartfelt. I liked how the original included the evolution of Tree’s relationship with her dad, they double down on that in this one with the surprise inclusion of someone from Tree’s past. The genuine joy that comes out of that realization for Tree and the pain that it causes later had a lot of pathos that you wouldn’t expect from this type of movie.
I was blown away by how Landon and his team were unafraid to blaze a different path with the continuation of this potential franchise and give the audience something fresh to chew on. If you’re stuck on having another slasher movie, this might not be your cup of tea but I can’t recommend this highly enough. If you enjoyed the first one and can keep an open mind, go see Happy Death Day 2U.
