A naïve group of National Guard trainees embark on a routine training mission in the New Mexico desert, only to find themselves face to face with a murderous band of cannibalistic mutants in prolific music video director Martin Weisz's sequel to the successful 2006 remake. An isolated desert research camp has been mysteriously abandoned, and now it's up to an elite unit of soldiers to uncover the truth about the scientists who vanished without a trace. Their attention soon diverted by a distress signal emitting from a distant mountain range, the squadron quickly regroups and sets out to investigate. Unbeknownst to the soldiers, however, is the fact that these are the very same hills where the Carter family recently fell prey to a flesh-eating pack of hideously deformed mutants. As the ranks of the cavalry unit steadily begin to dwindle, it soon becomes obvious that their guns provide little defense from an evil driven by hunger to commit the ultimate crime against humanity. Original Hills Have Eyes and Hills Have Eyes, Part 2 writer/director Wes Craven teams with son Jonathan to script this grim and unforgiving tale of man versus mutant. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Obviously the director didn't know anything about the US military. The only thing that remotely resembled something of truth with the National Guard was some of the uniform items. The movie showed serious breakdowns in military discipline that just do not occur. I'm in the military and have been in many combat and other difficult situations; we're too well trained to fall apart like the movie portrays. The scenes where the Colonel is the security is not reality. The Iraq training the movie portrays is ridiculous. And once again this kind of movie seriously degrades women and is just stupid. Not worth money being spent on.
I actually liked this one better than the first. More people are slaughtered and it's much more gory. Does it have a great storyline, build relationships, develop characters ... NO! But we don't typically look for that in horror films and this does have what we expect from horror ... blood, guts, lost limbs, screams, rape, fear ... HORROR.
