While I was enjoying my vacation at home, I spent time watching movies on cable channel, Star Movies. One of the movies that I was able to catch is White Noise 2: The Light. It stars Nathan Fillon (Castle & Firely) and Katee Sackhoff (cast of Battlestar Galactica).
I described this as a suspense movie. I was very much entertained and I believe the movie was well-made. Though the story wasn’t that strong but still well-crafted. This movie was a follow up to the original starring Michael Keaton: White Noise. I should try to catch that movie via DVD or wait till it is shown on Star Movies hehehehe. I heard that it didn’t get good reviews though, not like this 2nd installment which got 86% tomatometer (Rotten Tomatoes).
The movie was about Abe (Nathan Fillon) who witnessed the murder of his wife and son right in front of him. It was such a devastation that he ended up taking his own life. But he was able to survive. Due to this, he got the ability to see the people who are about to die.
Abe was able to identify because the person would have a white light surrounding that person. He felt that he needed to do something with the premonition and ended up saving three lives from dying. Abe also learned that the guy who murdered his wife and kid was still alive. He started researching about the guy and learned that he saved his wife and kid before.
Abe later realized that the killer also had an ability to see death. As he investigated further, Abe discovered that whenever you try to save someone when they are supposed to die, natural forces will punish you for it. Like for example, the ones that were saved will be possessed by evil after three days. And those people ended up killing innocent people in the process.
This led to the conclusion that he needed to rectify what he did by killing the people he saved. Before he could do that though, he ended up getting killed and then the movie ended. Ofcourse there were effects to let the movie end smoothly.
White Noise 2: The Light reminded me of Final Destination. Final Destination was more of teeny-teeny bop movie (which was good). White Noise: The Light on the other hand took the plot more seriously.
My rating for White Noise 2: The Light is 3 out of 5 stars.
