More fun, more bloody but still not as good as the first movie
2 January 2011 | by atinderSee all my reviews

This movie start of in space, with the Bounty Hunters and Charile from 1st movie, who is now Bounty Hunter, are told they need to go back to Earth.

Brad as also return to his hometown and he goes to his old house, that is now nursery, run by his Grandma.

Meanwhile a teenager as found some weired looking eggs and give them to this man, who them sell them in his shop, Some people, think these eggs are easter eggs, so they end up being all over the place, before that hatch the critters are back again.

This time the whole town have come together, to get rid of these Aliens,

This movie is not as good as the first movie, it's as lot more jokes, which makes this movie more funny then the first and it a lot more bloody moments , there are not gory moments.

If you liked the first movie, you should also enjoy this movie as well.

The acting it not great but it's what you normal get with B-Movies, like this.
