D 2: Rise of the Damned is a  Paul Leyden film starring Jeffrey Donovan, Penelope Mitchell, and Richard Brake. The film tells the story of Sheriff Roy Pulsipher, who dies on the eve of his daughter’s wedding, only to find that ancient demon plots to take over the world. Now that he is part of the celestial organization Ra, which specializes in dealing with demons, Roy must take up arms and learn to work with a partner in this new era of his existence. 

The film is a sequel to the original 2013 film and also a prequel as it shows us how Roy became part of R. in the first place. The film attempts to duplicate the formula that has made every Marvel film successful, including the comedy bits, but the film simply lacks the resources to be a compelling visual feast, but the writing is also pretty poor. Without those two elements and terrible jokes that fail every minute, R.2: Rise of the Damned is not the best option to watch this week.
