Sequel to the incomparable Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Birdemic 2 is still pretty enjoyable in its own right. Not least because it’s basically the same film over again. The same characters, the same terrible acting and awkward dialogue, shortly plagued by the same killer birds again. This time it’s cause by acid rain – again, truly a damning indictment on the damage we humans have done to the planet. Surely our day of reckoning, through the medium of killer birds, is near. Birdemic 2 doesn’t feel quite as earnest as the first one – when the characters pick up coat hangers to fight their assailants, it feels a bit too nudge-nudge-wink-wink – but it’s still a decent slice of the joy that only Birdemic can bring.
