Original one was good .....Sequelae even better.....
Right from the word where the first one ended 10 years ago , this sequelae starts it's journey.The original movie released in 2007 was one of my favourite Sci-fi movies of all time. It was an exceptional work of Jeremy Bixby who created the character John Oldman and Richard Schenkman who gave it the stage.And here after 10 year Jeremy Bixby's Son Emerson Brixby and the same director came out with even a better movie which has surprassed the original one in every aspect .
The movie starts with the same john Oldman who is now a renowned professor in Northern California. No one knows here that he is usually more than 14000 years old. He has successfully hidden his identity and mystery from the surroundings. But all one a sudden his four students find the truth. Along the truth they discover some important facts regarding the old man. Soon it became more bigger and serious. The whole mankind face a real threat due to this.
Like the original one this movie is a pure Sci-fi Mystery drama devoid of high Voltage actions. A sci-fi movie which is more concerned with questions and answers. Good to see john oldman returned with David Lee smith. Because no one than him is better accepted in that role as he has done exceptionally well in the first one.
Now why i am saying that this movie is better than the original one?
1. It answers many questions that were originated in the first one. 2. It has more Pace 3. It contains much more activity
4. It has more actions 5. It has a thrilling climax 6. It is more complete than the first one.
The only drawback of this movie is this is a sequelae and many critics have a firm idea that sequelaes are always inferior than the originals. But there are exceptions. We all know terminator 2 : the Judgement day was better than the original Terminator. This movie also is a superb sequelae that usually has gone far beyond the original...Truly a sequelae of exception....a movie of completing ideas....Judge it on your own instinct and you will find the answers ...
