The scientific elements for this film made it dreary.

The 3rd act is dragged out so much it feels like it's 3 hours long .

Though some parts of his setup are clever, Landon's execution turns almost maudlin in the third act, with drawn-out goodbye scenes and Hallmark-y life lessons that fit uncomfortably in the kind of cheeky genre pic that might (as this one does) try to make us laugh with a montage of its protagonist's flippant suicides.

The bad: Confusing story line & not clear at which time it took place in & how it connects with the first film.

But, once Tree finds herself repeating her birthday again in an alternate dimension, the story finds its footing and remains just as enjoyable as its predecessor.

I love movies based on the theme of "expect the unexpected".

In the end, Happy Death Day 2U is a fun continuation to the story that was set up in the first film, but it ultimately becomes very repetitive.

While it's not a necessary sequel and has lost some charm from the original, it remains solidly entertaining throughout and is therefore still recommendable.

Enjoyed it very much.

The characters were quirky, the plot was surprising, the thrills were gripping, the jokes were humorous and the acting was emotional.

First - something brave,original and funny turn into boring, confusing, multiverse time-travel movie.

Make a simple story, enjoyable and exciting.

Objectively speaking however, this sequel is entertaining, funny and quirky as it offers one hundred minutes of popcorn cinema that is quite easy to digest.

It was exciting and kept you thinking the entire way through.

Entertaining sequel .

Even with a predictable twist, the journey there kept me at the edge of my seat.

Out of all possible scenarios they chose to run with the time-machine plot line interjected with family/boyfriend drama which just dragged for far too long.

Watch the original first, and cap it off with this enjoyable piece of fun!

The movie does keep moving at a steady pace and most of the characters are entertaining (even if they aren't particularly engaging).

I would still say the original is better because this one is lacking enough scares and killing scenes to be as thrilling.

An enjoyable film .

More intense, more hysterical, harder, faster - and more innovative ways to die really.

Poorly executed Slapstick comedy and sci-fi elements that weren't present in the first film, make this pretty unbearable.

Just like herself in the first Happy Death Day, she shines a light of hilarity and fun in this entertaining sequel.

If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog :)Jessica Rothe leads the follow-up to Blumhouse's surprise 2017 smash hit of riveting, repeating twists and comic turns.

The storyline is also pretty predictable at some point.

The plot is the same , time loop , die, wake up again , this was a barely geniune idea of a plot in the first movie but the script was genius ,,, the script in here was even in a higher intense level of action/drama and the comedy was much more noticeable with more funny characters "the guys in the lab" so it looked richer than a usual sequel would look.

The film tries to combine so many different things that it becomes a boring watch real quick.

That's the best thing about both of these films, they are so fun and entertaining.

Average - boring at times .

The cast is the same but this time you're more familiar with the characters so it's more enjoyable.

Taken together, the two films are lively parodies of the standard, cliché ridden horror genre.

More complicated,More thrilling and more satisfying.

An enjoyable movie, unless you just want to see the usual slasher-horror .

There is nothing entertaining about this movie, it's just a waste of time and brain cells.

It is a fast paced movie without any dead weight and I paused it for every pee break which is something I don't normally do.

I hope the 3rd instalment be good and more thrilling.

This sequel, while not as intense as the first, still was highly entertaining.

I thought it was going to repeat itself and going to be boring.

I found this film to be highly enjoyable!

Worst Movie of the Decade .

It's not as funny, scary, unique or surprisingly entertaining as the original, and if the returning cast didn't deliver strong performances, this would be one of the worst films of the year.

I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, just something fun and entertaining.

While the film's increased gags and added element of sci-fi does take away from any tense or suspenseful moments like we saw in the previous film, this film is fun, it's brainless and the film knows it's not to be taken too seriously.

None of it seemed very realistic, it was confusing, the acting was below par.

Terminator Genisys, on the other hand, made the time travelling aspect the central point of the plot and, as a result, was a big disappointment with a totally confusing plot.

AS A FAN OF THE FIRST, I ENJOYED IT .

The acting was not Disney Chanel worthy, the plot was hard to follow (because it made no sense).

Surprisingly Entertaining.

A waste of time and money...

Went to see this movie last night with my friends we were so bored of it we just started talking for most of the movie this movie is too repetitive and u can guess what's gonna happen in the end not worth the watch

Thoroughly enjoyable .

Not as good, but still fun, funny and just overall entertaining

Why would anyone even waste their time on something if they are going to sprinkle non-musical s*it all over it later.

Found this one to be a bit of a bore and thought the attempts at humor were missing the mark.

It is better than I expected, and I enjoyed it.

This movie was waaaay too boring than the first one.

Those who love multiverse and time loop movies will find it very entertaining.

The second dive surprisingly brought some emotional punches into the fray and was very heartwarming (potentially tear jerking) in unexpected ways.

Happy Death Day 2U is overall repetitive and redundant.

It's an emotional rollercoaster with decent acting and an inventive plot, but much like its repetitive story, it has lost its freshness and frequently feels disjointed.

The sequel was disjointed & felt pointless, none of the Back To The Future or Sci-Fi was ever mentioned in the first film, so the sequel had no reason to be made as the event in the alternate universe don't add up to the events in the first film, bloody confusing!

The reason for the time loop just ruined everything and it was ridiculously cliché and predictable.

The plot is very hard to follow and the First and Second act have a completely different Protagonist .

Happy Death Death 2 U may be enjoyable to you if you like the first one.

Worst movie ever!!.

I liked first movie, but this one felt boring.

The other characters were not written well, the "relationship" between the main character and her love interest were cliched and dull.

The allure of the 1st film is lost in the shuffle and there are sequences that are as cliché as they come, especially in the scene where they try to make it scary.

With Tree facing the same scenario but with many changes, the characters are the same yet completely different and it keeps things intriguing.

The arc was as cliché as anything: "bad girl misses death mother and grows on selfdestructive behavior, then falls for a good guy and ends a good person", so the movie depended on extra things to be great: the imaginitive deaths; who's the killer mystery; the funny situations from the groundhog day and the jokes....

Just made an account to say how bad this waste of my time movie is .

Happy Death Day 2U is a tedious, unnecessary, and strange continuation of its 2017 predecessor.

Apart from some suspense at the start it gets ridiculously repetitive and annoying.

Happy Death Day 2U is intensely entertaining and hilarious.

Very predictable!

Having really enjoyed the first movie in this series, I was pleased to find this one just as enjoyable.

The reason they made it too complicated I think is to make it different from the first part and to make it unpredictable.

a frightfully clever & entertaining sequel .

Uninteresting with a great lead .

Much of the movie was laughable for the wrong reasons and just generally dull.

Worst movie You could possibly make .

It was scary, funny, charming, intriguing, touching and had a killer twist ending to put the cherry on the cupcake.

Fun, with a few jumpscares, but also predictable .

She was funny, expressive, terrified when the occasion called for it, and engaging for the audience.

Worth watching!

Too slow!

The problem is that Landon is unable to seamlessly merge them together, creating a disjointed film in the process.

This movie was really a thriller comedy I feel like with all of the jokes and all of the intense scenes with all of the dying.

Enjoyed it.

A sci-fi horror full of fantastic performances, engaging characters, excellent writing, and genuinely hilarious humor along with quite a bit of heart that blends several different moods and tones with one another flawlessly.

Amazingly entertaining.

The story is cliche and garbage, all of it is explained and forced on except non of it makes sense and there are like 20 plot holes for every minute of screen time.

The beginning is also very bizarrely structured and introduces an element to the narrative that makes zero sense at all in the wider story, which is very confusing upon reflection.

Loved the ideas and a had a great time with quite a few laughs, too, though it was suspenseful as well.

The first Terminator movies were fun because they were exciting action movies that used time travel as a plot device.

IMDB raiting 6.5 My raiting 8 I watched first part couple of months prior to this one and enjoyed it very much.

With Tree facing the same scenario but with many changes, the characters are the same yet completely different and it keeps things intriguing.

Happy Death day was an unexpected surprise.

Still impressive writing, directing, acting and entertaining.

I really enjoyed the first one but this one is nowhere near as entertaining.

Don't get me wrong the idea behind why the sequel happens is great but the actual story, the confusing story itself was just too much.

Happy Death Day Too is a thoughtless cash-grab that is-I guess-serviceably constructed but, frightfully weak and banal.

Luckily, then, the film is genuinely entertaining once it gets going and you can almost completely ignore the plot holes in service of having a good time.

And yet the first movie was too predictable.

It was entertaining spending an hour and 40 minutes no big deal.

Rating 8.4/10 Surprisingly entertaining !!

The film focuses more on the time loop machine than having suspenseful moments when the killer is loose.

Besides those cliché scenes, the rest of the movie is a comedy.

This film is more exciting, unique, more funny and entertaining with all its theoretical physics.. More tense because the more confused who is actually evil.. Already impatient waiting for the sequel (again)..

This second installment is still entertaining with some good and sweet moments.

I was honestly expecting this to be a stupid sequel, but it was just as engaging as the 1st, with some totes lols deaths thrown in (did somebody say 'sorority girl in a wood chipper'?

Extremely funny whilst exciting tense and keeping you on the edge throughout.

Though some parts of his setup are clever, Landon's execution turns almost maudlin in the third act, with drawn-out goodbye scenes and Hallmark-y life lessons that fit uncomfortably in the kind of cheeky genre pic that might (as this one does) try to make us laugh with a montage of its protagonist's flippant suicides.

Which can be boring at times.

Wouldn't sit down and watch it again hence why it gets a 6 but I enjoyed it as a one off, nothing else to watch so I'll give it a go kinda movie!

It's no horror movie, but it has a few (a bit predictable) jump scares.

Sweeping, exciting, amusing, wise and sexy all-in-one.

Written and directed by Christopher Landon this is an engaging Science Fiction/Horror Comedy.

Boring with TERRIBLE humor.

The characters are all really engaging and the cast do good jobs, helping with the overall investment.

It does slow down a little bit.

It was very entertaining which is what movies are made for right?

Entertaining .

Dull and Unnecessary .

All in all don't waste your time you may lose a brain cell or two.

Very enjoyable !!

This film is flawed but it's so nut's to the point that it actually entertaining, like the first film Tree Gelbman find her self thrown into the same situation as before only this time thing's have changed and the rules are different.

Amazing, entertaining.

I went to see this movie I must admit it's pretty wild there's plenty going on that's for sure there's a ton of horror action comedy really really a fun enjoyable movie so much here for young and old I recommend that you go see this movie

The unique concept of the movie is executed terribly and it feels boring when the movie constantly revisits places over and over again.

Too predictable!

A complete, enjoyable, very fun movie, fantastic for a sequel!

I was right this movie is beyond boring, with new addition that explains things that should have remained unexplained.

The ending was a bit much but overall it was a really fun and enjoyable movie, better than the first in my opinion.

More funny and entertaining .

There are some good unexpected plot twists for the avarage moviegoer.

Can't wait for the third, AMAZING Extremely worth watching

This movie was very entertaining and i would recommend it to someone if they want to be on the edge of there seat the whole time while laughing there butt off because it really is a comedy thriller.

Acting is pretty solid through the film, the explanation to Quantum Mechanics is explain well for people that have no clue about it, although there are areas of this film where the plot is weak which I noticed because I know a bit about Quantum Mechanics, Other than it's an entertaining film dare i say a little better then first film.

This movie is beyond s*it, it's basically if you took 'The worst movie ever' and combined it with 's*it' from the street and mixed it all up good and nice.

The mystery was enjoyable, especially how you get thrown for a loop right away.

Worst movie I've ever seen made no sense what so ever !

The 2017 original flick was a refreshing surprise because it took a different concept and mixed a bunch of genres in an unexpectedly entertaining way.

The twist's are laughable cliche .

I enjoyed it a lot and, if anything, it is as good as the first.

It is soooo gooood I enjoyed it much!

I really liked the first movie - I didn't have any expectations for it, and it still took us to a very enjoyable ride.

I would score it higher, but there wasn't a lot of blood and kills, however the comedy, silly twists and amazing character development made it worth watching.

Even though it is definitely the avarage hollywood movie, it is pretty enjoyable.

Complete Waste of Time .

This and the first one are genuinely so entertaining and I have nothing bad to say, the cast is so charming and not a single minute is wasted.

unwatchable .

Whilst I did have issues, it was enjoyable enough for me to recommend.

Boring ending!

Luckily, the flick is just as entertaining as the original - in the moment, at least.

It was a good one , intense I definetly enjoyed it , was funny as well .

A mouthful, I know, but the film itself was pretty confusing at points.

Decent and entertaining, not worthy of high praise .

And I'm warning you, don't ever try to watch the predecessor and its sequel back to back, you'll get tedious.

It was more exciting , more terrifying and more fun.. I didn't want it to finish.. We see new characters here and they are great actors like old ones.. You definitly should watch the first one before see this .

This movie was fun to watch and I enjoyed it.

While the story and dialogue is sometimes pretty cliché, the jokes are awesome and Rothe's performance is genius as ever.

Unfortunately, the repetitive nature of the plot eventually takes its toll, and the final act really labours the point, taking its merry time to wrap up proceedings in a not too tidy fashion.

"Happy Death Day 2U" is entertaining and lighthearted.

Such a shame, the first was great - this replays the premise of the first (after a tedious first half hour), then flips around with multiple plot holes and unfunny skits until a final reveal that means nothing due to the incoherent timeline plotting.

All the characters done their roles and I am looking forward to see more of Danielle on the big screen, I got bored with Tree now.

Wayy different vibe from the first movie.. I watch this expecting the same exciting storyline as the first movie.. This sequel is so boring I stopped watching after 15 minutes

Unexpected .

The beginning and end of this film are very enjoyable aspects, but the second act almost completely lost me, due to the repetitive nature.

But this second one is pointless, veers off the original theme and honestly after watching it, felt like a complete waste of time.

Save your money and order brazzers premium for a month instead.

It was so boring and slow and terrible acting I almost fell asleep

While the entire cast's game performances added up to an entertaining whole, lead actress Jessica Rothe's all-in performance was the revelation.

Worst movie of 2019 so far :(

Really by far the worst movie in a long time.

Quirky and funny with a great cast of characters, it's an enjoyable and entertaining film.

But most importantly it was just boring and I never got in a connection with the movie because there were so many things happening in a short period of time and the plot didn't really progress anywhere so after seeing her wake up for the 21st time with I just walked out to buy some more popcorn since it was the only good thing that evening.

That's definitely a script issue rather than to do with the actors for the most part, as the repetitive (grounddog day) structure of the film prevents them from achieving any kind of character arc.

It sure did prove to be completely unpredictable.

This sequel to Happy Death Day continues the tradition and steps up the challenges for the unlikely heroes resulting in a mixture of entertaining and bloody humourous moments for everyone to enjoy.

Where this film falls short of the first, is the fact that the repetitive nature of this story begins to wear thin.

The other component that did not quite work for me, was a few moments where the comedy was forced on the audience, a little too drawn out or grandiose for my liking.

Thankfully, I managed through the "will this ever end" and managed to see, what was otherwise, a quite enjoyable movie.

It did remind me of a particular movie series, in regards to the killer, so that was an enjoyable nod.

Entertaining, fast paced, and really funny.

There's a lot of decent stuff to watch at the moment, don't waste your time on this junk

It did take some nice turns and was a bit predictable but still enjoyable.

) it became very entertaining and a very enjoyable movie.

It was entertaining and had a decent number of funny moments in it.

"Happy Death Day 2u" is an enjoyable movie, a good enough source of entertainment.

The film does get a little bit boring through the second act.

It saddens me, because the first film was so great and so fun, this one is so dead and boring.

It just was fresh and entertaining.

Confusing pile s#!

Clever twists and legitimately laugh-out-loud sequences (*cue Paramore's Hard Times*) make this genre-bending sequel more enjoyable than the first.

Also, after a while the big reveal becomes predictable.

I do think the pacing was off a bit by going more comedy/sci-fi.
