Time Out

Harris's direction is messy, favouring confusing set-piece scares over the all-important group dynamics.

Three Movie Buffs

Doesn't come close to the original, but still manages to entertain.

Bill Gibron

With its back-and-forth plot pointing, illogical leaps in pragmatic believability, and a finale that flips a big fat middle finger at anyone who invested 90 minutes in this junk, The Descent 2 cannot hold a miner's candle to the original.

Leslie Felperin

As popcorn entertainment, it delivers, and should satisfy fans on all platforms.

Josh Bell

By the standards set up by its predecessor, it's a letdown, but by the overall standards of horror sequels, it's a complete success.

What Would Toto Watch?

No one expected 'Part 2' to rival the original, but it delivers a fair number of scares while replicating the eerie tension from the first film.

Thank the sequel for underscoring, in its devastating mediocrity, just how great and special the original was to start with.

Scott Weinberg

You can practically see the film trying to "color between the lines" laid down in the first film, but there's just enough freshness to keep Part 2 chugging along.

Fan The Fire

You won't be missing anything spectacular if you don't catch The Descent: Part 2, for horror fans and those who enjoyed the original, however, it's definitely worth a go.
