Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur do it again!

P2 was an awesome thriller outside of these french guys normal genre - horror - even though they still bring the gore with severe impact to the viewers. I am generally afraid of parking garages now because of this film. There are only two characters thoughout the movie battling to the death - not some big budget bs. And when people die, they die. No twist of fate that is unbelievable. If they get hurt in a scene, they are hurt the rest of the movie.

Good movie but somewhat predictable

by cebellmd

I enjoyed the movie and it was definitely suspenseful; however, the ending was a bit more predictable than I prefer.

SCARY?? YEA RIGHT bpolhamus
OK SO I WENT INTO THIS MOVIE BEING TOLD IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SCARY..THAT IT WASNT AT ALL. I WAS KIND OF EXPECTING SOME OTHER THINGS TO HAPPEN..BUT I WILL SAY THIS I DID LIKE THE BLOOD AND GUTS PART OF IT. I ALSO LIKED THE ENDING...I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE BEST PART OF THE ENTIRE MOVIE. IT WAS A REALLY FAST MOVIE AND I WAS IN AND OUT IT SEEMED LIKE AND THAT MUST HAVE MEANT I GOT INTO IT. IT GOT CONFUSING AT TIMES AND HARD TO UNDERSTAND BUT AT THE END EVERYTHING CAME TOGETHER AND MADE SENSE AFTER THINKING ABOUT IT.

Very intense yet sometimes funny creative thriller! Different, and must see

Made me jump
Excellent movie, made me jump in my seat, which is a hard thing to do. Very exciting throughout the moive, keeps your attention until the climatic end

stooormz said...

Not the sequel to P1
By-the-numbers horror/thriller, but sometimes that's just what you want! Great movie for those looking for a well done genre flick that are tired of the lame and cheesy teen scary movie types. This one's a winner, try it out

It was ok...some parts were good and some parts were blah. Not exactly what I was expecting but it wasn't bad. Just not something I would pay to go see in the theaters

P2
It was painful to watch!! I actually left 20 minutes early because it was just that bad

by jmae2006 said...

THIS MOVIE MAKES YOU THINK.....
This movie makes you think about the little people that help us out throughout the day that we usually do not thank as much as we should, let alone acknowledge their presence. This movie was eventful and unpredictable. It came me on the edge on my sheet. The plot was new and refreshing

by samtheman1326 said...

ME THINKY ES MUY MUY STINKY! OHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THIS MOVIE IS FLAT OUT, MESSED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY LORBY NEVER CHECK THIS ONE OUT OR ELSE YOU'll PUKEY IN YOUR SEATY. peace

by PRIMO1023 said...

WAIT FOR DVD
This movie was hype based with commercial edits that made it seem like one of the best thriller/horror or whatever it's supposed to be.No action really until 35 minutes or so in.Please wait for the dvd!

by Horror_Girl_187 said...

P2
~By far one of the most funniest "action/horror" flick that was shown this year! I couldn't stop from laughing. Overall it was fantastic...Must SEE!!! HRG187

by nuckolssteve said...

must see
great movie

The dreaded Parking Garage scenario...
If you enjoy the psychotic type drama like me, then you will have fun with this one. The empty parking garage at night is pretty scary at the best of times, so it works for me. Rachel Nichols does well as our intrepid heroine, it is great to see women fight back these days, and Wes Bentley is creepy enough as our psycho who desperately needs a good therapist! I saw this in an empty theater, just me front row center, with my feet up and my milk shake, so I was a bit tempted to look behind me, but resisted! Director Frank Khalfoun may not have great box office returns but DVDs should do well!

by mehernandez said...

It's ok.
I should have gone to see The Nightmare Before Christmas.

by dolfinn21 said...

Not very good
I didnt like this movie really at all. The actors needed more acting classes. The female main character was not very realistic in her actions, and the man wasn't convincing either. I dont reccomend seeing this or even buying it. Pretty bad

by ekuhlman said...

P2
A bit gruesome, but you don't go to sleep during the movie.

by DJbodom said...

Worst movie I have seen since 1408
It was very predictable, and the was way too much gore that was not needed. Save your money. There was only 8 people in our movie, 6 of which were in our group. Don't let the commercial's fool you. Worst 90 min. of my life hands down.

by abilbo35 said...

Amazing
It was a bit wierd, and kinda lame at first, but wow the middle, and the end were amazing. I loved this movie so much. Gross, and good at the same time!

by MRSGOSIER said...

I like it
I liked the movie. I really like how they are making women stronger in today's movies.

by Thisdog13 said...

wow
pretty good

by supermom1 said...

P2
Worst movie I have ever seen. Predictable. No real story behind it. Almost the whole scenario took place in a parking garage. Horror and violence. Not my cup of tea. No wonder we were the only couple in the theatre!!!

by dmarkim said...

P2
The commercials show the best parts of this movie. Very disappointing

by khar said...

p2
it was ok but bland and predictable

by candlerea said...

Not too bad
The movie had its moments. There were some times when the woman character was stupid, but she got better at the end

by margee946 said...

P2
THIS WAS A GREAT MOVIE.!!!!! THREE OF US WENT, AND WE ALL FELT THIS WAS ONE THE BEST MOVIES EVER. A MOVIE WITH BASCIALLY ONLY TWO GREAT ACTORS, AND A DOG, MADE ONE OF BEST SUSPENSFULL MOVIE. THIS IS A DEFINATELY "MUST SEE".......

by Kanasta_Jones said...

P2 is a no no!
Whatever you do, save your money!! This movie is so not worth your time. BIG dissapointment

by freakinthesheets76 said...

p2
i thought this movie was really random, it had some disturbing parts that seemed like they shouldn't have been in the movie, but it defintely was a suspenseful movie

by aogm720401 said...

P2
The only thing I am sorry to have wasted is the 1 hr and 38 minutes of my life, since it was my roomate's turn to pay. This movie is just lame, another flawless proof that, as a people, we are desperate for some form of entertainment.

by czasgirl said...

P2
This movie was very gory but the story was a good one. If you like gore than this is a good movie for you to see.

by BrianOD said...

I have seen bad movies but... I found myself laughing at this horrible piece of trash about five minutes in and couldn't believe that I paid to see this. I wouldn't even recommend this if it was free. I usually love this genre of movie and will usually not complain about a bad movie because there is usually a certain expectation before walking in. I found myself reciting the script before they even said a word and every scene and word was something I had heard or seen before.

by trev7188 said...

P2
Gory but a great movie!

by 032875 said...

EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was a very good movie it scared me alot. I dont know why everybody says it was bad i thought it was really good.This movie made me never want to park in a parking garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Flickchecker92 said...

P2 Review
Of all of the horor movies I have ever seen this was one of the more interesting. I have seen horor movies before like The Amityville Horor, but nothing compares to the feeling of suspence you get while watching this movie. The movie has a good story line but at some times you can see some of the error of the main characters ways. without getting to in depth of the movie i definately say it is a go. if you are a faint of heart then i would have to say make sure you have somone there with you because the movie can get intense but truthfully i definately rate it a GO!!!!!!!!!!

by Daydream said...

Terrible.
Being the only person in the biggest seating, pitch black theater i went to, I was hoping to be thrilled or at least interested in this movie. P2 is a copycat of the movie Red Eye, with Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams, except this one dragged and continued to drag. Wes Bentley was great, but the film never branched out from what we see in the trailer. No thrill and very dull. Do not see this movie.

by luisremax said...

Loved it!!
This film provided everything I expected. Dark, Suspenseful, Sexy, Psychotic.. All I have to say is Rachel Nichols!! Although their where not enough shots of her T&A.. I was nudged by my girlfriend every time I would make a noise when she came on screen.. I will defiantly recommend this film to friends and family.

by Bionicchicken said...

Eh ..not so good
Predictable and a weak story line. Not even sure if it deserved a R rating.

by TAMSOSS said...

Cliche
What a waste of time. I went because my boyfriend really wanted to see it...even he hated it. Predictable, cliche, bad acting... Definitely not worth the money.

Filled with stuffing.
All and all the movie was good. I feel like the plot was presented to quickly forcing the whole first hour to be filled with stuffing. The movie really wasn't that interesting until close to the end. When it got good, it stayed good. I probably wouldn't go see it again, but I dont regret seeing it the first time.

by deghostrider said...

Not Bad
The movie was not as bad as I expected. It had quite a few suspenseful moments. The camera work and the dark setting in the parking lot contributed greatly to the suspense. Plus, Wes Bentley plays a really believable psycho. The plot may or my not have been truly believable, but it's still entertaining and a good watch.

P2 is good for rent
Wait for the dvd to come out. It's ok....not too crazy about this movie, but it can be entertaining at times. Had some crazy gross clips. The guy in this movie is one OBESSED dude! What's crazy is, it could happen to someone..now THAT'S scary!

by JSTEWISIT said...

Horrible
The plot was insanely idiotic. The acting was poor to say the least. The only actor that did half-way decent was Rachel Nichols that has proven she can do better. The preview made it seem like a totalyl different movie. DO NOT GO.

by SBritt said...

True Scary
It's hard to imagine people that might do this but it is scary and makes you think. I only hope the movie doesn't make someone do a copycat. Yes, I jumped a couple of times, too

by cinephille said...

a taut, well acted, well scripted thriller
One of the better ones in the genre, I should add, and a very pleasant surprise. The setting, an underground garage, provided perfect context,. The heroine, a doe-eyed gangly figure, was a fine cynosure for pity and terror. Whereas the villain was an intense and just dorky enough of a chap to curdle your vital fluids.

by havokx13x said...

A different type of thriller.
A little more dialog than normal. Good scares! I liked it alot. A little slow at times but it was great. Give it a chance, don't leave during the movie. Reminded me of a more gory Red Eye.

by olympusman2004 said...

Meak to Beast
This movie is a must go see. THe acting and the storyline are great. It shows how one if pushed can become a beast who will defend at any cost.

by jeremygalvez said...

A terrifying twist on an old legitmate fear.

Everyone's heard the stories about people being mugged and assaulted in parking garages. Hell, most of us have been in a parking garage when no one else is supposedly around and had that fear creep up from the base of your spine that someone may be just around that pillar, just around the bend where you can't see, or worse yet, under your car. This movie brings all those fears to life and does it in a way that has the ability to actually terrify you. I've been watching horror movies since I was 4 years old, and I have found very few that actually get me going. This one definitely fit the bill. The gore is extreme, almost unmanageable, but if you can get past that, the acting was convincing, the gore was believable, and the storyline was realistic. I couldn't have asked for anything more from this movie

by Froggytimes said...

Not soo believable
My husband and I were disappointed. The bad guy was way too good looking to have a problem getting a date. Also there were some very corny lines that had us rolling . Not a total waste we got some good laughs lol

P2... Made For Family Channel...

This movie could have been made for Family Channel or Turner Broadcasting Co., only reason why it wasn't is because of a few scenes with 'blood splatters'. Don't waste your money on this movie. The actors' were good and round breasted but wasn't worth the admission... I hardly would rate this movie as being a thriller movie...

by the_scarecrow3 said...

Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

That quote was from Snatch, a movie I rather enjoyed. P2, however, was quite the opposite. Not only was the movie predictable, unfulfilling, and unrealistic, but at times it was so bad that it was almost funny. I guess that is one redeemable quality, perhaps. I think they should've taken out a few unnecessary F-bombs and rated it PG-13 in hopes of generating some interest amongst younger teenagers.

by Angela Lea said...

Really Great Thriller!

Throughly enjoyed movie. Some gore not too much on the langauage mostly just gore but not to bad. It was pretty frightening. You will hop up out of your seat a few times. But, great movie with a powerful ending.

by sexycrotch said...

this movie is awesome!!! yea!!!
I almost pissed myself! watching this movie! I did poop though! it was wet! ew!

by ErinLedesma said...

P2
It was pretty scary, but it had some up way too close gore that I did not think was necessary. Besides that it was good!

by KimberMom said...

P2
Does the fact that the audience was laughing during the movie indicate to you that this THRILLER isn't that thrilling? This movie is not worth the price of any admission or even a free movie voucher since that is two hours of your life that you'll never get back.

not worth the money.

by Part_Time_Spider_Man said...

Good Movie
Overall I thought P2 was a good movie because I was thinking that this crazy crap can happy anytime. OK well maybe not but at least it wasnt about a drowned boy who will never die (Jason) or a disturbed freak who want to kill Everyone (Halloween). Worth the day time price of admission and you should enjoy it if you like thillers! Overall a good movie ENJOY!!!

by sunday thaiger said...

DUMB
this movie could be entertaining if you can totally ignore the stupidity of the main charactor and many missed opportunities she had to dial the freaking phone or kill the freak or do something! i couldn't..so it was almost painful to watch or root for her to get away. a few extremely violent scenes..too bloody and totally dumb..1/3 way thru the movie i gave up on her dumb ass i wish he'd just kill her and get the movie over with. save yourself some money and wait till it comes out at the mcdonald's redbox.

by kimreynoldsak said...

I really liked the movie. There were a few places it was a little slow, but for the most part I liked it. The trailer really caught my eye. Made me jump in a few spots. He ggot what he deserved in the end!!!

by llovemoviess said...

SCARY!
This movie was way to scary for me, but I loved it. It deserves atleast 3 stars and even hought its scary, it will make you laugh. MUST GO!!!

by movielover319 said...

good
i thought it was good people are thinking to literaly about it

by ltipper said...

worst movie ive seen ever???? wow what a waist of time!!!

by jimp711 said...

Enjoyable
Yes as others here have stated it is a bit far fetched....but tell me what movie of this type is not? I saw it and it was entertaining. The acting was very good and it is full of surprises. You will jump 3 or 4 times throughout the movie. I would say it is a movie to see for fans of the thrillers.

by peter1950 said...

WELL?????
SAW THIS FILM ON THE FANDANGO SITE AS I WAS LOOKING FOR A HORROR/THRILLER. I WENT AND SAW IT AND THOUGH IT HAD A FEW ROLLER COASTER MOMENTS BUT ON THE WHOLE IT WAS DUMB. WORKING LATE ON CHRISTMAS EVE? ---- I DON'T THINK SO. GETTING LOCKED IN A BUILDING THATS IN MANHATTTAN?----IMPOSSIBLE. I COULD KEEP GOING IN THIS VAIN OF QUESTIONING BUT IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF TIME. JUST LIKE THIS MOVIE WAS A BIT OF A WASTE OF TIME.

by tklp_777 said...

P2
P2 was quite an interesting movie it wasnt one of those thrillers of a man in a mask or anything of that matter. I really dont know what my thoughts on the flow of the movie...Im sure that it could have been better. The Story line was...ok...but then again really cloudy. The Actors did a good job, I did jump a bit, not really one of those scream pee your pants kinda thing. So all in all it was an ok movie it could have been better. I recommend this movie to those who just want something to do. Get a small adrenaline rush. I guess it was worth the money payed to see it

by anapple said...

terrible
it wasn't suspenseful at all, the plot was terrible... it was a waste of my precious free time. DO NOT GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE!!

by falmouthlax1 said...

great
this is a great movie u must see itt

by jeremyoliver said...

Worth the Money
It's quite supsenseful and the cold, dark location of a parking lot makes it more un-nerving. The scenario plays out similar to that of the movie Red Eye (with Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams) but I think Wes Bentley is a much more believeable psycho and there is more gore involved with P2.
