BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II The Review

Human Rating: 2 / 5 Alien Rating: UFO Sighting
 

Great Scott!

Back to the Future Part IITime travel stories can become mightily confusing and this film, which follows immediately on the events chronicled in Back to the Future (1985), becomes incredibly convoluted.

Nonetheless, despite the plot confusion there is some fun to be had as Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd travel to several alternate futures to patch up problems that they have caused themselves - albeit directly or indirectly. (Back to the Future Part II extensively employs the alternate timeline gimmick, one which has been used often in literary science fiction, but seldomly in its celluloid sibling...)

Back to the Future Part IIHowever, the film ultimately relies on too many cheesy make-up routines in which characters play their older (and female!) selves which makes it not exactly the best movie in this series...
