thrills,i found it better than the first and it's much more
disturbing,and leaves you with a feeling of dread.the story though is
much more implausible.it puts a religious spin on the proceedings.while
electronic voice phenomena or EVP could have some reality to it,i
seriously doubt that there's is any religious aspect to it,but that's
just my opinion.things also get a bit muddled at times,at least i
thought so.still,i thought Nathan Fillion was good in the lead role,and
I like Katie Sackoff as the female lead,but i wish she had way more
scenes,as she is barely in the movie.when you add everything up,i think
there are more positives than negatives.for me White Noise 2 gets
En sauvant une vie, celui qui est la cause de cet acte délibéré prend en charge tout acte qui pourrait être commis par le dit sauvé... quant on s'y arrête un peu il faut avouer que cela donne des frissons dans le dos... Heureusement pour nous que cela (jusqu'à preuve du contraire) n'est pas le cas dans notre réalité à nous sinon comment ferais tout ceux dont cela fait parti intégrante de leur travail de sauver des vies...
Un film qui du début à la fin m'aura amené dans un univers bien intense, on se laisse facilement prendre surtout quand on a vu et apprécié le premier, la suite n'est que meilleur et tout aussi spéciale... Le mal a encore une fois un rôle des plus singulier...

If this premise sounds familiar, it is because it's been done to death by Hollywood, but this film does cover this territory very well. It's a combination of Final Destination and the original White Noise. While not as violent as FD or as clever and jolting as WN1, this film is good and stands on its own two legs rather than just being a sequel that repeats its predecessor or a sequel that literally continues the story. This is a sequel in name only; it does rely on ideas that come from that WN1, but it goes off in its own direction. I guess the "2" to a popular film is liable to get it more noticed, although I think it could have been titled something else.
In any event, after a near-death experience in which a man loses his family he is plagued by horrifying images of potential deaths that he discovers he can prevent if he acts soon enough. The acting is surprisingly good for a small film and the effects can be quite jarring at times. I thought the plot was clever and the direction was competent and appropriately paced.
This is a good chiller for a rainy afternoon and okay for the whole family (if they are into thrillers).
"White Noise 2" (Also known as "White Noise The Light") however, stands alone with little connection to the first movie "White Noise".
Nathan Fillion leads the cast as Abe Dale and accomplishes something rarely seen in a move of this genre, a connection with the characters. You're instantly drawn into Abe's world, and when he suffers a tragic and seemingly pointless loss, you can't help but feel for him. We see a more vulnerable character from Nathan Fillion than we have seen before and he expresses Abe's loss in such a way that is truly believable.
Katee Sackhoff, as Sherry, brings a degree of warmth and joy to what could otherwise be a somewhat dark experience and the dynamic between Nathan and Katee works exceptionally well.
Anyone who is a fan of either Nathan Fillion or Katee Sackhoff is sure to be as impressed with this film as I have been.
Props to Patrick Lussier who brings out the best in a sequel to a movie that was considered by many to be a disappointing experience.
White Noise 2 does continue the EVP concept, but now adds near death experience to the mix. I thought White Noise 2 had a pretty decent idea and some elements work and others seem to lack. Writer Matt Venne actually writes a pretty decent script. I sort of see this movie as a White Noise meets The Dead Zone. Instead of a man with psychic visions the lead character sees a white light and that's how he knows who is in danger. Matt Venne doesn't really bring us anything exactly new to this genre, but he does write a script that does have some creative moments. This movie is a little smarter than most people would think. White Noise 2 is very much a character driven movie rather than action and Venne does a good job.
Director Patrick Lussier does a good job at brining everything to life. There are moments where the pacing might be a little on the slow side, but he always manages to keep things from getting too slow. Though there are moments where the pacing was a little too slow. There is little to no scares. If you've seen enough horror movies the scares are quite predictable, but there is some decent tension. For the most part Lussier does keep the movie interesting; this isn't an Iconic directing job, but good enough to make an interesting movie.
Like I said White Noise 2 is very character driven and Nathan Fillion is excellent in the lead role as Abe Dale. The makers got very lucky in landing Fillion who is a very talented actor. He really makes this movie a lot better than maybe it should have been. He's in pretty much every scene and he does a great job at carrying the movie. Katee Sackhoff as Sherry Clarke also delivers an excellent performance. She's a very talented actress and manages to light up the screen in every scene she appears in. Her character is a lot of fun and Katee really seems to be enjoying herself and any character who lists Bride of Frankenstein as their favorite movie is my kinda girl.
When all is said and done White Noise 2 isn't a great movie by any means, but does serve as a decent time killer. Odds are if you liked the original you'll probably like this, even if you didn't like the original you might like this since it's not a continuation. White Noise 2 had the potential to be a lot more than it was, but at the end of the day it might be sort of forgettable, but White Noise 2 is actually a fairly good movie.
This movie certainly does not pickup where the original left off. It is a clean slate from the beginning. There is no slow, boring lead in. The whole story line was laid out in a clever and relatively quick fashion. It is a little confusing at first but this adds to the suspense. The special effects are good, at times, but nothing overly exciting. The jump factor of this film was a bit weak. Sure, there are some scenes that have the typical sudden flashes that make you jump a bit, but with a movie like this you would expect a bit more. My wife hates horror films that make you jump, so she was quite happy with the overall mild fear factor of this film. =o)
Overall I was quite pleased with this film and glad that I purchased the DVD for my collection. It is nearly as good as the original White Noise, but just lacks a little punch. The ending was somewhat confusing and leaves a bit to each viewers imagination. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The story keeps your attention, the directing seems good, the choice of actors and their associated performances are very good. As a comparison I think I would rate the first White Noise a 5, while I consider White Noise 2 a 4 and 1/2. It is a great film that I recommend to everyone. I guess I just didn't get the same thrill from this film as I did the original. Maybe the whole "Near Death Experience" concept just isn't quite as mysterious to me as it might be for others. I suggest you see the movie and judge for yourself. If you enjoyed the first White Noise movie, I'm sure you will not be dissapointed with this one.
