Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 5/10

Cast: Seth Rogan, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ike Barinholtz, Kiersey Clemons,Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jerrod Carmichael, Beanie Feldstein, Selena Gomez, Lisa Kudrow, Kelsey Grammer, Liz Cackowski, Carla Gallo.

There seems to be no shame in a sequel, in many cases the story demands that the character’s lives are further resolved or they are at least interesting enough to wonder what would happen next in their lives, that the demand for the story will always ensure a franchise. The first one though, the first part, that is where the demands starts and if the first film goes down in flames then the second one should never be attempted upon pain of death in the audience.

There is no doubt that Steve Jobs was magnetic personality, that the brains behind some of the ideas of personal computing of the last 40 years have his own indelible stamp upon them and that whilst being deeply flawed, as all reasonable people are apt to be, Danny Boyle’s biopic of the man behind Apple somehow manages to leave the casual viewer feeling aloof and disconnected from the subject at hand.

The leafy streets of Toronto don’t have that many films attached to it to make it a serious rival to New York in which to shoot feature films, the sense of history is not quite there. Instead of the usual camera shots of well-worn cliché ridden snippets of Central Park, coffee houses and exclusive apartments, Take This Waltz relied on the majesty of the Toronto skyline and the idyllic settings of Little Portugal and Lake Ontario. For that alone gives the film credibility as it strays away from the well beaten production North American film path.
