The problem with Hostel Part II is the same flaw that afflicted Hostel: no tension.

With all due respect to Mr. Roth, Hostel is a really bad attempt at trying to be better than the saw franchise. And it obviously didn't work. This movie was bad. Whether it was the acting, the story,...

I was a huge fan of the first hostel. I only had a little problem with the vomiting. This one has absolutely no vomiting...except that chick who happened to be sitting a couple seats away from me....
