(at around 1h 19 mins) In the church confessional scene, the background audio has the priest reading from the Gospel according to Luke Chapter 23 Verse 24 ("Father forgive them for they know not what they do"). If this is St. Patrick's Cathedral, a Catholic church, this section of Luke would be read out loud only during Palm Sunday Mass (or at Mass during Holy Week) in observance of the Passion of Christ, (the verse is from the part of the Gospel describing the Crucifixion). With such an important reading going on, there would be no priests available to hear confession at that time, they'd all be celebrating the Mass. See more »
You can only appreciate this sequel if you saw the first one as there are so many references to it. Whereas the first one was quirky, original and well produced this one isn't. It's just OK.
There are too many silly behaviours and plot holes to mention like leaving the killer to get up and walk away for no good reason when they could easily have got him. Plus its full of the usual clichés. The two actors are wasted in a film with much lower production costs. It looks and feels a bit cheap. Even the so called special effects aren't up to much.
The actors work well together but I think Dennehy is the one that adds character and depth and saves the film.
So all in all a disappointment. I'll be watching the first one again sometime but not this one.
