Marty and Doc are at it again in this wacky sequel to the 1985 blockbuster as the time-traveling duo head to 2015 to nip some McFly family woes in the bud. But things go awry thanks to bully Biff Tannen and a pesky sports almanac. In a last-ditch attempt to set things straight, Marty finds himself bound for 1955 and face to face with his teenage parents -- again.

As Good As It Gets


A lot of fun.

Roman Sampson

One of the most extraordinary films you will see this year. Take that as you want.


Great story, amazing characters, superb action, enthralling cinematography. Yes, this is something I am glad I spent money on.


This sequel was everything a person could ask for in a relatively family-rated movie about time travel. Number one, the character flaws actually gave the characters more depth. Marty's reckless attitude got him into a car accident that cost him his career in music in 1985, then it got his future self fired in 2015. He bought the sports almanac in 2015 to take back to 1985 for financial gain, which eventually caused Biff to presumably murder his father, marry his mother, and basically become an unstoppable millionaire casino boss in an alternate 1985. This reminded everyone how young and naive Marty is, despite coming off as mature and cool-mannered. Doc had always been the guiding voice of genius, but he still doesn't fix his time machine when it starts to glitch, and that causes him to be sent back to 1885. This type of character development added an element of realism that is usually completely forgotten in family films. Number two, the special effects and props. And not just computer generated effects. This movie had so many beautiful sets from three (technically four) distinct versions of Hill Valley. The original 1985, hyper-futuristic 2015, alternate distopic 1985, and the classic 1955. Needless to say, they displayed each time period flawlessly and we're left with a seamless story that has enough beautiful 80s flare and eye-popping effects to make this movie truly timeless. Which leads to number three, the plot (specifically how time is represented). This movie went above and beyond what was expected of a sequel to the first film. Fans were left with the cliffhanger of the flying DeLorean entering the year 2015 to save Marty and Jennifer's kids, and that was all they had in mind. More adventures except this time the budget has allowed them to take place in the future. But this movie added in so much more about the "disastrous consequences" that Doc always rants about, and those are what time travel fanatics want to see in a movie about time travel. There was much more at stake here than just Marty and his family. This was a story about how one mistake in the future led to many lives ruined in the present, and how the person who made that mistake eventually made things right. That's the kind of hero an audience can root for without feeling like they're rooting for someone fictional. Number four, originality. I don't know when it started, but at some point the directors and writers of the sequels to box office hits began to piggyback off the jokes and plot of the originals. This is lazy and disrespectful towards fans, though they might play it off as a tribute to the classic. But this movie never did that. They made a new path away from the race against disappearing from reality and they stuck the landing in every way possible. And yet, this sequel is still overlooked. By idiots.


This movie is basically a rehash of the previous movie, but in different years. Though its not as good as the previous movie, and has some dumb moments, its still extremely entertaining. If you enjoyed the previous movie, you will enjoy this one. Its delightfully funny and still clever. I'd recommend this movie.


The continuation of the fun "Back to the future" does not have the same brilliance and charm as the first, but still, it remains a film that puts a smile on the face of any viewer. We have a continuation with a clever script, special legal effects for the time, funny and funny performances, all the 80's cliché, and so on ... that idea of all the movies have links between them is very cool, do you Want to see the first one to try to get all the ester eggs, but also we have flaws, like not taking advantage of interesting characters, the repetition of ideas, the errors of continuism, etc. But anyway, "Back to the future" continues Being a very late afternoon movie, which is not bad, because it is a very fun movie and to be with the family, and technically is good, does not have the first film's beauty, but fulfills its role very well.


This 1989 sequel to the 1985 film, "Back to the Future," features the continuing adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown. In this film, Marty must travel from 1985 to the year 2015 to help his own son. Through an act of carelessness, Marty initiates a chain of events which alters events prior to 1985. Marty and Doc must return to 1955 to repair the damage to their own history.Although entertaining, this second film wasn't quite as good as the first and third films in the series. The character, Jennifer Parker, did little except faint a lot in the movie; so, the inclusion of the character in the story seemed a bit puzzling. The older versions of the characters from the year 2015 were depicted in an over- the-top manner, rendering them somewhat less credible. The future characters seemed more like parodies of the younger versions from the earlier film, which diminished the audience's ability to engage with them on any emotional level. However, the story of the lives of the future characters of this film was intended to be only a backdrop to the more interesting story about Marty McFly, Professor Brown, and Biff from 1985.While this second film was arguably the weakest of the three "Back to the Future" films; this film still managed to become a source of interest as it approached the date, October 21, 2015 (the future date depicted in the 1989 film). Audiences of 2015 were amused by some of the film's 26-year-old predictions which proved to be wildly inaccurate. Audiences of the year 2015 also had the opportunity to compare how well the actors had actually aged in real life compared to the way they were artificially aged using makeup and prosthetics in 1989.In spite of its flaws, the second film in the "Back to the Future" trilogy still manages to be fun. The film is well paced; and, the time paradox problem is interesting. Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Thomas Wilson put in great performances. The film's forecasts of the future as well as its re-creation of scenes from the first film provide points of interest for the audience. The film is a fascinating entry in the trilogy which audiences will enjoy!
