Title: Jack Frost 2
Post by: Gavin R.R. Smith on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
I love the original Jack Frost...which is why I gotta say I found the sequel to be pure torture. I found only a few clever lines and a lot of stupidity that wanted to be funny but just wasn't. Now, everyone is entitled to their opinion--but I can't see what was so great about it. Kinda like giving Species 2 a good rating...waitaminute...I'll reserve comments on that...

Clearly a classic film- up there with Friday the 13th Part 6 and Nightmare on Elm Street 3:Dream Warriors in the bad-yet-very-good stakes. Captain Fun is my role model in life

I knew it wasn't only me who'd seen this film! A true legend in the cheesy horror stakes if ever there were one. That anvil bit cracked me up, the characters are so stock-type its unbelievable..That old english guy had me rolling up...The ice cube and poool scenes are just totally gratuitous...this is probably my favourite film ever! It's also filmed like alow budget soap whic just adds to the effect. SEE IT AT ALL COSTS! You will not regret it. Seriously. Has there even been a better sub-title than 'revenge of the mutant killer snowman'? I think not!

When I saw the first Jack Frost it had a little bit of everything.  Gore, Humor, and a scene that just make you shake your head and say "What the HELL just happened?."  Anyway i saw the second one on the store shelf and i said what the hell.  Man what a waste of two dollars on the rental.  That dude from the first one goes on a vaction and science dudes try to revive him and he comes alive finds the dude and starts hacking the tourists up and they try to stop him. Instead of going further ill give you pluses and minuses instead.

+Frost has new look
+Manners is back from the first
+Some key spots of humor
+High Body Count

-Frost looked better in the fist movie.
-Manners was cooler when he was dead.  Played by another actor he gets his the 2 film. Heh Heh.
-Humor is dry and not as good as the first time around.
-Killings are off screen and all you see are splatters of blood on certain objects to show they are dead.
-No nudity! What?
-Bannas? Anti-freeze was more clever  
-Film was shot with regular video camera instead of movie film. WHY you ask? To tell yo the truth i dont know.
-Very Very Weak Plot
-Intimate moment with his snow kids was overall made think wait a moment jack frost doesnt cry.
-Complete waste of Time

So in closing keep this piece of smoldering crap on the shelf.  Don't rent it dont buy it if you want a killer snowman rent Jack Frost, the first one when the film was in all its B-movie glory.

I can't believe you guys are complaining that the sequel was crap. I mean, after the first one, what did u expect. its a typical crappy sequel, except this time the original was a bomb as well.

The first film was awesome, this one has crappy filming, the snowman looks horrible, obviously they couldnt find the old costumes, and most of the deaths are implyed with a squirt of ketchup. The movie drags on, with few good lines, they even tried to make Jack computer animated, it was horrible. The worst part of this movie is the little evil snowballs, how could they do that to this classic, the sequel had so much potential. Instead they turned into a home video advetisement for asahi beer and organica cookies.

This is one of the stupidest(a carrot talking and killing someone) and cheapest films ever made. The acting is terrible also. This doesnt even deserve one star.

After the first one being so great in every aspect, i had high hopes for this one. The one thing that brought this one down from the first one was the camera, it was shot with the same camera grain as soft core porn movies you see on showtime, which kinda took away from the feel the first one had. Also the comedy is no where near as funny as the first and the deaths arent as cool. But either way it was repsectable just not as good as the first

 This movie is awesome! From the great opening, to the extremely gory deaths, to Captain Fun and Activity Boy, to that clip they showed at the end credits where a giant carrot crushes a ship, This movie is pure fun and highly entertaining.

  "I now pronounce you totally freakin' dead!"

The DVD version has a lot of gore and nudity that was cut from the VHS version (not that we watch this films to see naked chicks, mind you....;)

Here's an idea:
Rent the Michael Keaton family film (the one where he is reincarnated as a snowman) and then splice in some short clips from this film...then return it to the video store.

Hilarity would ensue.
