A continuation of the ideas in the first one. This is the only thing in common. The film streatches those ideas to new areas and leaves more questions than the first.

The characters are individual and have their own problems. Maybe not as captivating as the first, but still worthy. Those who have watched the first many times and understand it well enough, might like this.

Not sure why a cult classic gets tampered, which is saddening since most first films are always better. A very huge departure from the greatness of Donnie Darko and its director definitely had no control over this unfortunate sequel which focuses on Samantha Darko (Chase) and friend Corey (Evigan). Unlikable characters, MTV-like sequences, very unoriginal premise, pace was dreadful and plot just uninteresting. Only thing worth seeing are the subliminal plot and special effects.

Also, it was entirely too dependent on viewers seeing the first movie, there was absolutely no explanation for any of the "bizare" things happening.Oh, i did like the soundtrack. &amp; i was pleasently …

Not infuriated, just confused. There was absolutely no need to make this film. None whatsoever. Donnie Darko is a true original, and nothing more needs to be done. Hopefully this film will be so bad that it will be ignored and forgotton about within the year. My Fingers are crossed.
