Check out the main reviews:
“Julia Stiles plays the matriarch, and it’s good to see this beautiful actress having fun in the movie that is chaos and at the same time enjoyable;”, teams
“Coggeshall’s script isn’t especially crisp, as the movie really revolves around this big twist, but the visual approach and the actors’ performances give Orphan 2 an edge that should satisfy fans of the original.” indieWire
“The strength of Fuhrman’s acting – as she demonstrated in last year’s The Novice, she can be a striking and unsettling presence in front of a camera – goes a long way towards reclaiming the role of the malevolent mini psychopath Esther.” observer
“’Orphan 2: Inception’ rocks! It is clear that the talented directors did not want to imitate the previous film. The second is wittier, smarter, and just plain awesome, injecting new life into his spooky toddler formula. Take a sip before you see!” Fresh Fiction
“’Orphan 2′ is a smart, punctual film that fits perfectly into what the first film created over a decade ago.” collider
“Long live Esther!” slashfilm
“Deliciously over-the-top and a little silly, it’s a horror comedy that’s hard not to like, even if it doesn’t live up to its predecessor.” starburst
“A film that understands its own absurdity, being much better than the first, and rightly so.” The Wrap
“It works like an Esther prequel, but manages to feel so uniquely independent thanks to some great, one-off changes to the narrative.” IGN Movies
The film will be released in national cinemas on september 15th.
The presequence is driven by William Brent Bell (‘Evil doll‘), with a screenplay written by David Coggeshall.
The original film was released in 2009 and was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
Despite having made considerable noise at the box office (raising almost $80 million), the production had a mixed reception by specialized critics, reaching 56% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
