    Hatchet II earns bragging rights with buckets of giddily over-the-top blood 'n' guts in sequences that are as gratuitous as they are amusingly ridiculous. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    You want gore, you get gore. Hatchet II plays less like a slasher movie than like the highlight reel from a slasher movie. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Every boogeyman and slasher cliché this movie borrows was better somewhere else. Although it probably wasn't grosser. show more

    Amy Nicholson Boxoffice Magazine

    Adam Green's inventively gruesome slasher is the widest unrated release in 25 years. show more

    Eric Hynes Time Out New York

    It's a functional sequel, but with all that spirited slicing and dicing, the director could have at least broken a sweat. show more

    Michael Ordona Los Angeles Times

    You don't go to this film for Sorkinesque repartee; you go for the world's longest chainsaw, or equal-opportunity genital mutilations, or very, very long bludgeonings. And here they are, in buckets. show more

    Village Voice

    This time out, Green is not as self-aware, devoting a solid hour of his film's 90-minute running time to pre-mayhem character development so witless and dull that Hatchet II might as well be "Friday the 13th, Part 14." show more
