Back To The Future, Part II (1989)

Doc Brown’s time machine works its magic once more in this merry sequel to Back To The Future.

Barely back to 1985 after his original jaunt, Marty McFly (pictured above) is whisked forward to 2015, along with his girlfriend Jennifer, by Doc Brown. Marty’s mission this time is to prevent a crime involving his teenage son before he disgraces the whole of the McFly family.

Michael J. Fox is on board again, along with Christopher Lloyd as the eccentric scientist (pictured below).

Cast and special effects are good, but the complex script is too clever for its own good and the film gets bogged down by trying to cram in too many ideas and settings (past, future, alternative universes). It certainly helps to have seen the original.


A third and final Back To The Future sequel followed in 1990.
