HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U is fresh, fun & a really good time.
Unlike people who saw the movie on opening night, I think I may have actually benefitted by waiting a few days. I heard a lot of people were a little disappointed that that most of the horror element was gone for the sequel. So, naturally, I went into 2U with that in mind.
To my surprise, there's still plenty of horror/suspense to be had. And honestly, I enjoyed the sequel just as much as the first movie. This is where I'd insert the shrug emoji.
Once again, Jessica Rothe totally shines and is just as loveable as ever. The rest of the cast stepped up as well.
The movie gets a little confusing at times but that's okay. The film is dealing with a weird, new-ground territory and I think the filmmakers did the best they could. But, hell, I liked it. I really, really liked it.
Short review, I know, but the film is good and if you liked the first movie, then please see the sequel. It really is a continuation of the story (of sorts).
Just a happy coincidence after seeing a movie that literally deals with that same subject and date. Ha!
