The movie is like 75 minutes if you don't count the credits.

It was entertaining but I feel like they tried to be 10x more crazy and intense than the first one was and it all felt very forced.

Fun if you have an hour and a bit to kill though.

Default Ending

I enjoyed this movie a bit less than the original (concept was slightly old at this point). However I did enjoy it. The kills were fun in a SAW way. The killer just felt a bit hackneyed in this one. In the original he was a brilliant mastermind with unknown intentions. In the collection he was a mis en scene maniac.
I thought the ending was fresh in that Spoiler's...

Spoiler Below
Our protagonist confronts the serial killer on home ground. Meaning his house was not rigged up to kill. Therefore our hero can make easy work of him. It showed what some serial killers are like without the home court advantage. The house was intriguing as well, only hinting at the true nature of its occupant

Terrible. I really enjoyed the first one, thought the plotline was decent and the kills were entertaining but this one had the bare minimum plot, seemed rushed throughout, and the kills weren't that good. The entire movie seemed very lazy. Nothing good about it. Seemed to be made only to tie up the loose ends from the first one. I looked forward to this and am very, very disappointed.

I agree. I actually fell asleep through it and just now went back and finished it up. I thought the acting was terrible and the kills were nothing new. I think what bugged me the most was the buildings layout didn't fit what was going on during the film

I actually enjoyed this a lot, for this very reason. A long Collector film would reek of self-importance. The quick pace and craziness helped it achieve the funhouse vibe it seemed to be going for - a quick blur of madness and then out into the light. I respect that the creators went at this without any pretense at all. Fun and tight - like the perfect date.

Also love how messed up Arkin gets in these films. Sheeeet, even Rambo or John McClane or even any of Arnie's characters never got a freaking

Despite the silliness of it all, I was muttering "that's cool" like every few minutes while watching this. I can't wait for The Collected!

I'm not saying it has to be 3 hours long but time to establish things would've been nice. Aliens achieved this perfectly and was two and a half hours long. The great thing about the first was it was super intense, and was tonally and atmospherically strong which is pretty rare to see these days. It's not often I get a character in a horror film I want to see succeed but I was pulling for Arkin the whole time.

The Collection, however lacks any sense of structure or realism, completely abandons the tension for gore & crazy shit and makes The Collector (the character) look weak and stupid.

Like I said, you can do way worse and it being just over an hour long is great if you want to watch something but don't have time to get invested. Just a let down after the first.

As much as I love The Collector I prefer The Collection. Fast paced and action packed with some really stellar kills. Josh Stewart is a fantastic anti-hero.

Great ending too.

How is Stewart a anti-hero?

Well he is a criminal.

Look up reviews for both films and you'll see him referred as anti-hero by several people. It's not just me.
