      Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 21, 2005 Full Review Caffeinated Clint Moviehole lacks the enthusiasm of the first film. It's action/adventure is almost non-existent, atleats until the last half an hour, and the lack of recognizable actors doesn't hold your attention Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 20, 2002 Full Review JoBlo JoBlo's Movie Network It ain't a cure for cancer but it should do the job on an idle weeknight.

      Audience Member Joe Chappelle is well-regarded for episodes of CSI: NY, CSI: Miami and The Wire, but he made this back in 2002, a direct-to-video sequel to the original movie. Star Robin Dunne, who plays Ryan Sommers, seems to take over for Joshua Jackson in direct-to-video sequels, what with him showing up in Cruel Intentions 2 (and yes, I own it; I am a self-professed sequel lover). He and his best friend Jeff (Christopher Ralph, who was in the Animorphs series) get picked for the Skulls; Jeff is super down, Ryan less so as his older brother Greg (James Gallanders) was a member and it'll take time away from his demanding girlfriend Ali (Ashley Tesoro). Ryan and Jeff are punished when a prank goes wrong and end up cleaning the attic of the Skulls' headquarters, which gives them the perfect view to see senior Skull member Matt "Hutch" Hutchison (Aaron Ashmore) and field hockey team captain Diana Rollins (Margot Gagnon) partying on the roof and that party ends with her falling to her death. But is it real? Or just another part of the initiation? Ryan's research ends up taking him to the parents of Will Beckford from the first film who reveal how the Skulls killed their son. Then, his brother is fired from his lawyer job (do the Skulls own The Firm?) and Ali accuses him of assaulting her. Luckily, he can trust Kelly (Lindy Booth) and the two of them -- along with Greg -- work to undermine the secret society. This movie may have been Michele Colucci-Zieger's only writing credit, but her co-writer Hans Rodionoff wrote the two Lost Boys sequels (I have no idea how I haven't gotten to those yet) and Deep Blue Sea 2. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A bit like the original, but with out the better cast and plot. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Feels like I've seen before. Oh wait I have with part 1! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The first Skulls movie was a great thriller with mystery and suspense. This sequel takes place at the same school and is a very similar storyline as the first. I kind of saw Skulls 2 as a light version of Skulls. It had some deaths/murder, some thrills but everything seemed toned down from what the original brought. Some of the plot toward the end was just ridiculous and unbelievable and the acting was weak in some areas. I did enjoy some parts of the film and it kept me on the edge of my seat till the conclusion so that was good. If you watched the first Skulls you should enjoy this one a little but if you are just looking for a random thriller to watch you can do better. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member An incredibly bad plot with horrible writing, but otherwise enjoyable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Just as good as the first but the women are better in this one. Basically the same plot though. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
