The virus that appeared in the first film continues to grow in this sequel when it infects an airplane full of travelers. After making an emergency landing the passengers realize the authorities have sealed them off and plan to let them die.
Mercedes Masohn (Jenny), Josh Cooke (Henry), Mattie Liptak (George), Ignacio Serricchio (Ed), Noree Victoria (Shilah), Bre Blair (Paula), Lamar Stewart (Preston), George Back (Ralph), Phillip DeVona (Nial).
Quarantine 2: Terminal, much like the original film, is slow to start. Quite a bit of character and plot setup takes place before the first zombie even appears. Tie-in with the original film is good with several references but no flashbacks or extended focus on events. Once the zombies show up, suspense builds and the film makes a better pace though it never hits the pace we would like.
Acting was a mix with Cooke doing pretty well as antagonist. Liptak did well playing against Cooke and others, while Masohn felt a bit dry. The remainder of the supporting cast was okay but a bit more character depth or emotion would have helped significantly.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were all pretty good. The airplane and terminal scenes had a realistic, solid feel. Effects were physical, CGI, and via costuming. All were nicely done, being both mild and somewhat shocking at the same time providing nice balance. Dialogue, sound, and soundtrack were all pretty good.
Overall Quarantine 2: Terminal is a decent, mid-level zombie flick with good quality from most aspects. A good choice as an entry level zombie film, or for a night where something milder is desired.
With plenty of violence, gore, foul language, terror, and some sexual content this should be fine for older teens and above.
Quarantine 2: Terminal is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 3 out of 5
