Plot
I had high hopes for this sequel, and all my expectations were met. Moreover, there is nothing in this plotline that I saw coming. I got more science fiction than horror, and the humor was taken up a notch. The film embraced its time travel roots but didn’t feel the need to explain everything. Script-wise, Happy Death Day 2U had the right dosage. It mixed various genres harmoniously.
It starts a certain way, then throws us off balance. Most of the characters we got attached to, initially, come back. These actors probably had a good time on set; we do feel chemistry. This film is more of the same, but it never feels repetitive. It’s also not afraid to offer answers, whenever it can, and the mystery doesn’t drag. Also, there are interesting variations of the initial gimmick.
It’s worth revisiting the first film to get into this one with a fresh mind. These are excellent companion pieces. As a rule of thumb, part 1 has more horror and part 2 more comedy. Jessica Rothe still plays the most interesting character. She’s still the main protagonist, and she feels like a friend. Are you looking for a feel-good horror comedy? Look no further.
