Not bad for a sequel, but not great - very medium
Verified purchase
This isn't as good as the original, but the acting was decent and the effects weren't too bad and it's got Lawrence Heinrichsen. The plot is a bit unfocused and retreads much of the same ground as the first one, but it could have been a lot worse - the story is serviceable and the main characters, while not terribly memorable, are at least not horrible; I didn't really care that they died, but I wasn't rooting for their deaths either. The whole movie is like that - neither good nor bad but sorta medium; it's up to you whether you find that a recommendation or a warning.

I had no idea they made a sequel. The original scared the crap outta me when I was a kid. I thought this one was pretty decent for a B sci-fi movie, but it did have nearly twice the budget and was probably only half as good as the original. everything that unfolded in the movie was so laughably predictable, sooo many missed opportunities. I'm not going to go into spoilers but just a few tweaks to the story and how the screamers behaved... man, that would have made ALL the difference between 3 stars and 4.

Almost as good
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed the movie. It has some decent pacing and the acting is believable. The plot does have some holes in it but none that destroy the movie. I personally was not too thrilled about the ending but that is just my taste I think. (Nope not going to give a spoiler.) I think that the movie suffers most from expectations from the first movie. I didn't help myself in that regard since I bought both movies at the same time and watched them back to back. If you liked Screamers you will enjoy this movie.

enjoyed it

Saw screamers 1 a decade ago and really enjoyed it. This comes pretty close but it should have taken the opportunity to go over the top in effects. The ending also begs for a sequel, which is distasteful, but though cliched at least the sequel is potential and not, as in Hunger Games, necessary.

Great Sequal
Verified purchase
Screamers came out back in 96 and was a huge success on many levels. Adding special Effects with good acting and a great Sci-Fi tale of terror. The Hunting is a sequal that lives up to the original.

A Team of Soldiers Respond to an SOS on a planet thought to be un-inhabited. But they find that there is a civillian presense on Serius 6B as well as a dark secret from the past that has been biding its time to exact its revenge.

The story is nothing new to sci-fi and acting is moderate, however the Special Effects stand out the most due to thier Suprising Detail. most straight to DVD films lack good effects, not so with this one.

Somewhat of a let down after the original Screamers
Verified purchase
I have long been a fan of the original with Peter Weller but this sequel lacked much of the punch and dynamics of the original - I watched it and almost regretted buying it, almost. If you are expected the same strong story line and performances of the original this will fall short.
