Back to the Future Part II

Critics Consensus

Back to the Future II is far more uneven than its predecessor, but its madcap highs outweigh the occasionally cluttered machinations of an overstuffed plot.

Audience Reviews for Back to the Future Part II

  • Jun 20, 2016
    The second film picks right up where the first one leaves off. There is trouble in the future that Doc Brown and Marty have to correct. This time they take Marty's girlfriend with them. This one has an interesting intermingling of storylines/timelines as they travel to the future then to the past. Still a great film despite losing only just a little of what the first film had.

    "Back To The Future: Part II" is a good sequel to 1985's "Back To The Future". The acting is good mainly from "Michael J. Fox" and "Christopher Lloyd". "Back To The Future: Part II" has an okay plot to it. The antagonist in this film "Biff" portrayed by "Thomas F. Wilson" he is just a aggravating guy, in the middle you just want him to die. In the end does he get justice? NO, not really. This is what annoyed me in the movie. The special effects in this movie are okay, nothing mind blowing. Music in this movie is good some parts are thrilling, mainly towards the end of the movie. If you like the original "Back To The Future" I suggest watching this film, it's still a good movie. And I give "Back To The Future: Part II" a 6.5/10.

    I thought it would be almost exactly like the first, and thank the heavens it wasn't. Though a sequel to an already creative and inventive film, it managed to offer new stuff. Kudos.
