Back to the Future Part II 
Back to the Future II review
3.5/4 stars


Definitely one of my personal favorite sequels (along with Godfather II and Empire Strikes Back) because of its ingenuity and storytelling. Still, the first film was more compelling and heartwarming than the second installment. The old cast is back, Christopher Lloyd as the perky Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown, Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Marty McFly Jr. and Thomas F. Wilson as the grumpy Griff/Biff Tannen. The problem in the first film, Marty has to save the future of his existence and his parents to fall in love. This time, he has to go to the future and save his kids and prevent any issues in the McFly family. A few timeless quotes: Doc Brown – “The time-traveling is just too dangerous. Better that I devote myself to study the other great mystery of the universe: women!” Marty: “For all I know you did send me back to the future, but I'm back, I'm back from the future.”

Most of the films laughableness and musical score is similar to its predecessor. Some of the clothing in the future was unrealistic and the manure joke was still inserted. Other than these minute disparities, the movie was still delightful and refreshing to view. The acting was respectable and script still alluring. The effects at that point in time were okay, not too disappointing though. Much like Godfather II where Brando spurned a comeback, a certain important member declined to take the role of George McFly (Crispin Glover, who also filed a lawsuit against producers/Spielberg for using his likeness on the film). Imagine if both actors agreed to return to their respective pictures, would things turned out differently? Both franchises are lucky to have such high caliber directors who can still manage in bringing out breakthrough films. Some of the predictions have come true such as flat screen TV’s on walls that show 6 channels at a time, hands free video games, usage of plastic surgery, with a few inconsistencies like flying cars, Queen Diana and Nike footwear with automatic shoe laces. I felt they should have ended it with this film since the 3rd installment was mediocre. Overall, this exciting movie stands the test of time and generations to come.
