TCultureVulture’s review published on Letterboxd:
Struggle Patricia Arquette was a disappointing replacement and hard to get used to. She must have really wanted to get away from Elm Street, the production budget more than doubled the last film so I'm sure she was offered a nice check. Between the bigger budget and Renny Harlin's direction the improvement in the quality of the film is plain to see but I don't think this has the heart of Dream Warriors.
Also I've got no time for Shark Freddy and the roach motel bit which are big fat omens of even sillier things yet to come in the series.
