Accusations fly amongst the eight survivors with ex-mercenary soldier Philip Lombard admitting his guilt to Vera and religious spinster Emily Brent making excuses for her accusation. A search party is organized to hunt the killer. Owen, in vain and former General MacArthur is despairing, seeming to lose his mind - and then his life. Two more murders follow, leaving only five little soldiers on the table and it is apparent that the killer is one of the five remaining guests. Written by don @ minifie-1

Just plain wow!!
27 December 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

After two deaths the search of the Island begins for the mysterious U N Owen, but an increased body count brings a harsh realisation, one of the remaining guests is Mr Owen.

I had amazingly high expectations after the first instalment, and thankfully they were realised. I loved the ill feeling between them all, it was beautifully played out, they each behaved as naturally as would be expected, scared, suspicious and alone. A brilliant air of claustrophobia has been created, there literally is nowhere to run or hide. Great music, very sinister and threatening, and once again the filming has been first rate, the harsh reality of their present day events is hugely at odds with their flashbacks.

Some wonderful scenes throughout Part 2, I loved the scene between Emily Brent and Vera Claythorne, both were impressively well in character. I am again hugely impressed by the entire cast, Aidan Turner is putting in a hugely impressive performance as Lombard.

Close to perfect, 10/10
