Movie Info

In F/X 2: The Deadly Art of Illusion, Bryan Brown returns as movie special-effects designer Rollie Tyler. Having barely escaped with his life after being duped and exploited by the villains in the first F/X, he isn't too eager to channel his talents into police work again. He'd much rather design harmless playthings for the kiddies. Still, detective Mike Brandon (Tom Mason) manages to convince Rollie to help the cops trap a dangerous voyeur.

The plot twists, the originality of the FX, and the interaction between Brown and Dennehy make up for minor weaknesses.

July 6, 2010 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

Lacks the spark and flair of the original.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Fairly uninspired sequel to a movie that didn't really need one.

I preferred this one to the first, the only thing that lets it down is the lack of moustache under Brian Dennehy?s nose!

This sequel is more exciting and great special effects with Bryan Brown than the original. Brown seeks the help of ex-cop Brian Dennehy when he gets into trouble.

Half-hearted followup to the first film isn't nearly as good.
