[A review of The Man From Earth: Holocene]
NOT SO GREAT A FILM
I absolutely loved the FIRST film and was excited to learn that a sequel existed. Unfortunately, the producers really dropped the ball with the sequel. In my humble opinion the script is all wrong, the cast isn't good at all, and the sleazy scene with the teen girl getting lewd in the school office of John Young (the caveman) to seduce him totally ruined the sequel. Also, although as a Christian myself I enjoyed the satire in the first film about Christianity, I think the sequel took it too far and was just plain offensive. They could have done so much better! I also thought they made a big mistake by not including actor Tony Todd in the sequel, who did an excellent job in the first film. As is often the case, sequels don't live up to the quality of the original film, as is certainly the case here. What a lousy sequel!
