SURE, IT'S GOT a NUMBER RIGHT THERE in ITS TITLE, BUT DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU: P2 IS NOT A SEQUEL. IT'S a TOTALLY ORIGINAL FILM...INVOLVING a NUBILE YOUNG WOMAN LURED INTO a TRAP, STRIPPED DOWN to HER UNDERWEAR and FORCED INTO a BLOODY FIGHT for HER LIFE.

OH, WAIT...THAT'S ALSO the PLOT of THOSE 837 OTHER CHICK-IN-DANGER FLICKS. 

OKAY, IT'S STILL the FIRST MOVIE WHOSE TITLE REFERS to a LEVEL in a PARKING GARAGE. AT LEAST THAT PART IS ORIGINAL...

AND NOW, FORUM MEMBERS, START YOUR CRITICAL ENGINES...


"HELP ME! I can't seem to remember where I left my car...or my dress!!"

I'm so excited for this movie! Films that have girls in danger are always fun (maybe not for you). Sure, some are old, but you can't tell unless you've seen it. This seems even more exciting than Saw 4, (though I hated High Tension, and didn't like Hills Have Eyes)...

I'd like to see P, if it's out there...as long as it's brought to us by Sesame Street (the only ones who could do this title just right).

I doubt Sesame Street would be part of a "P" film that also involved "S" and "M"...

What were they thinking making this film -- the first-ever combo family Christmas/graphic violence movie??  I can't see WHO the audience is supposed to be...

You guys say this is the worst film of the week, but two other films, Fred Clause and Lions for the Lamb, are receiving even worse reviews! As of Thursday, this film has a 43% rating on RT (which really surprised me that this film would receive a two digit rating) while Fred Clause and Lions for the Lamb received 34% and 28% respectively. A third film, Lake Dead, does not have any review yet (thus making it a stinker). Maybe those three other films are more deserving to be mentioned in these forums than P2.

Response from Head RAZZberry: I just just added FRED CLAUS (which now stands BELOW 25% Approval at RT) to our Discussion Forum. As for LIONS FOR LAMBS, I plan to wait 'till the dust settles (by Monday) to see if its combined box office and reviews justify its inclusion herein...

^^THANK YOU. These films (P2, Hills Have Eyes, and High Tension) usually make it between the 45%-55% range.

Lake Dead has NO reviews out yet, so looks like it will be another stinker.

Wow, we have four pretty crappy movies coming out this week: Fred Clause, this movie, Lake Dead, and Lions for Lamb. Just wondering, is this a record?

Yahoo really hated "Lions For Lambs". It has a D score and it's on their bottom rated of all time with a 15! The only films that beat it are: "Clifford's Really Big Movie", "Feardotcom", "Bratz", "Marci X", "Son Of The Mask", "Alone In The Dark", "Battlefield Earth", "From Justin To Kelly", "Home Alone 4", "Swept Away", "Starship Troopers 2: Heros Of The Federation", "The House Of The Dead", "Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2", and "Gigli"!

Well, Lions for Lambs was behind Fred Clause in this weekend's box office. And currently at RT, it has a lower percentage rating than this movie. So maybe that justifies its inclusion into these forums?

Saw the film (7/10):

The story centers on a corporate climber who gets stuck working late on
Christmas Eve and finds herself the target of an unhinged security
guard. With no help in sight, the woman must overcome physical and
psychological challenges to survive.

I'm surprised to see this film rated so low for critics and average
movie goers. I'm here to say these reports are nonsense! This is one of
few horror movies, in quite a long time, that is free of clichés you've
mostly seen in other horror movies! Why is that such a bad thing?

Here, in this rare horror movie, people do the right thing. The heroine
is actually smart. She thinks things out before she does it. Here, the
villain is also very smart. And I never knew this could happen but the
police in here actually do the right thing! They aren't one of those
people who don't believe that this is happening and leaves right out
the spot.

Saying that, this movie works. With such a limited amount a space - it
is just parking areas - I found the imagination and creativity really
good. Also, the plot doesn't go downhill. It doesn't cheat. It doesn't
have any twists or turns. It's a straight forward horror/thriller
movie.

One reason people may find this bad is the gore level. It's unusually
high for such a small movie. And yes, the violence will turn you off
and make you get sick. Horror fans, on the other hand, will love it.
The suspense in here is also high enough because I usually do not get
in the edge of my seats that easily.

One of the writers in the film is Alexandre Aja. He directed High
Tension, which I dreadfully hate and The Hills Have Eyes, which is tons
better than High Tension but wasn't a good horror movie. Now he wrote
this, giving his friend, Franck Khalfoun, a chance to direct. You know
what? This is the first film I've actually liked involving with Aja.

The performance by Wes Bentley is very weird and freaky. It's not like
your usual villain. Rachel Nichols' performance is good but nothing
special. All in all, this is a good horror/thriller movie. No, it's not
a classic, nor is it a torture porn movie, although the trailer might
suggest that. Still, it's a lot better than what gets released these
days.

Spoilers ahead:
 
Wes Bentley is on the edge of being good and he almost get there.Rachel Nichols isn't just a bad actress,I hate looking at her because of the same reason with Paula Patton in MIRRORS:They're both using white thight clothes and are wet for marketing reasons only.And yes...I'm a guy!
 
The premise is clever on the fact is has those 2 trapped,theatre play style.But there's no depth.We don't even find out what's with him.He's just some random psycho.
 
A common thing I've seen in Alexandre Aja's films is that his characters don't realize that,during their self-defense,they end up as psychotic as the villians.When Angela gets back at him...did you see her face?I also would've killed the dog,but I wouldn't have moved that thing around.She almost takes his brains out!
 
For Aja's fans this movie prooves that he's a better director than writer.That's why I'm looking forward to PIRANHA 3D...unless I like it.Then he'll be off my list of "Worst Filmmakers".No!
 
Not only I gave it 0%,I gave it my award for "Worst Thriller/Horror Movie Of All-Time",which was previously held by Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW.Really.There's nothing scary.The gore made me cringe more than most films,I give it that...wait!That's a bad thing!
