      Thom G Mandao Returns is a good sequel. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Audience Member What the hell? I didn't even realize this was a sequel until I finished the movie. It didn't seem to matter. I'm not sure I would call this science fiction, maybe more within the fantasy genre. I laughed many times and fell quickly into the story. It has everything I love about indie movies: quirkiness, humor, strange originality. Now I'm going back to watch the first one! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Megan Williams Battle Royale With Cheese 'Mandao Returns' is a silly, but charming, film about time travel, spirits and three friends trying to fix the timeline. Dec 14, 2021 Full Review Norman Gidney HorrorBuzz If you want a comedy sci-fi noir with heart and a side of brains, Mandao Returns is it. Rated: 8 Aug 3, 2021 Full Review Sebastian Zavala Kahn Ventana Indiscreta The film feels like a true sequel, set to expand the world in which the story takes place, but without losing the charm of the first instalment. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Apr 6, 2021 Full Review Chuck Foster Film Threat Ultimately, Dunn reminds us that an independent filmmaker on a tight budget can deliver gold with little more than a strong script and solid actors.
