Storyline

July, 1995, the time is out of joint. Two teen girls, Sam and Corey, have left Virginia for L.A. to start over. Sam's brother has died and her family's shattered; Corey's too wild. They have car trouble in a small desert town, where Corey immediately starts her partying ways, where a meteorite strikes a windmill, and where a burned-out Desert Storm vet predicts the end of the world in four days. Sam hallucinates while sleepwalking, young men have disappeared from town, and cars come out of nowhere to cause accidents. Time travel may be possible, but it takes courage and resolve. Is the addled war veteran right? If he is, can Corey or Sam make things right? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very mediocre
24 May 2009 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Thanks to its bizarre premise,its combination of ethereal and terrifying images,and its dreamy tone,the film Donnie Darko instantly became on a cult classic after its release in 2001.Personally,I liked that film very much,and I belong to the vast majority of people who would have never considered making a sequel as a good idea.But that did not stop to the producers who were willing to win some more dollars with a cheap sequel made straight-to-DVD.S. Darko faced the unenviable homework of continuing a complicated and complex story which all the time invited the spectator to taking out conclusions.Unfortunately,this sequel did not achieve that,and we have a boring,mediocre and completely unnecessary film.Those who have seen Donnie Darko will recognize similar elements in S. Darko...the fall of an object which triggers strange events; the presence of the book "The Philosophy of Travel in Time"; the prophetic nightmares about the end of the world; and the sinister disguise of a rabbit,although it is used on a different context on this sequel.But,while Donnie Darko kept a consistency inside its extravagant narrative,S. Darko feels arbitrary and improvised.Things happen without any logic or method.Besides,S. Darko is one of those sequels which do not feel the necessity of expanding what was previously done...it it just one of those mercenary sequels which are pushed by the money,and not by the vision of a creative team.The performances are solid and they bring some points to this weak movie.S. Darko is a bad sequel of an excellent film.I found it to be boring,uninteresting and completely mercenary.
