Back to the Future Part II Reviews

Sure, [Back to the Future II] has a clunky first act - which takes place in a hilariously overblown futuristic society - but the film knows just how, and when, to entertain us, and it does so in spades.

Antagony & Ecstasy

There are definitely aspects of laziness to the script--jokes which haven't been fully considered, simpleminded characterizations, subplots which have no life outside of the narrative--but at the same time the movie has a spirit of exploration and daring,

The film works best through its magnificent technical achievements (the visual effects received an Oscar nomination) and the inherent charm of Fox, Lloyd and, especially, the delightfully menacing Thomas F. Wilson.

The relatively quaint and simple time travel arc from BTTF gets far more confusing and, in some ways, more fulfilling.

It's impressive entertainment, and best of all, it never degenerates into Spielbergian sentimentality: you can laugh, be thrilled and think without feeling embarrassed.

It manages to be giddily and merrily mind-boggling rather than confusing.

Uneven but still enjoyable, delivers a darker scenario than the ending of the first film would imply.
