'ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 (Unrated)'
(Thomas Dekker, Owain Yeoman, Brian Austin Green, Danielle Harris, et al / DVD / R / 2011 / IMAGE Entertainment)

Overview: The game of cat-and-mouse is on as Chromeskullís assistant, Preston (Brian Austin Green, Desperate Housewives), scrambles to tie up the loose ends left behind after his deranged bossís last killing spree.

DVD Verdict: OK, for the record, it HAS to be noted that if you never saw the first movie you might be (will be) confused - as this movie assumes that you did see the first installment. Even before the opening credits have rolled you'll be asking yourself basic questions such as, Er, who is Chromeskull?, Why is Chromeskull who he is?, Why does he kill like he does? and What is this organization behind him? I truly felt a little behind the 8-ball as, yes, I myself never saw the original!

Anyway, once I got over that, I delved into the movie with all my senses alive and ready to absorb. And sure there are massive defects with the plot along the way re: if you're going to kidnap someone, wouldn't you immediatly check them for, and then remove (as everyone has one) their cell phones first, but you quickly get over such things, trust me!

The cops have various clues about the kidnaping, leads are actually looked into, and the hunt for ChromeSkull barrels ever onwards. And, yes, if you don't know, re: SPOILER ALERT, it semes his slightly inept apprentice, 'Mr. Megan Fox' (Brian Austin Green) is the one preparing his victims!

In closing, if you haven't seen the first one, I would recommend watching it before attempting to watch this one. This is a Widescreen presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
