1989's middle entry, in which the pair head forward to 2015, is the most underrated -- like fellow second child Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, it had to contend with doltish charges of being too cold.

While the funny-bone is being gently tickled, the eye is constantly diverted. Unfortunately, and I find this true of every Zemeckis movie, neither the mind nor the heart is ever fully engaged.

Imperfect, but very lovable.

It's simply a joy to be able to spend two more hours of fun with these great characters. [Full review in Spanish]
June 29, 2015
A surprisingly oppressive, rapid-fire, noisy, gadget-filled action picture lacking the emotion of the original film.

The most important point is that the new film is fun.

Glum, claustrophobic and often oppressive.

This is a sequel for sequel's sake - all title, no content.

The effects are even better than in the first film, and the actors certainly enjoy themselves in a baffling array of roles.

An entertaining but hollow picture.

Another fantastic voyage in a thoroughly entertaining contraption.

A rush job from filmmakers who should have left well enough alone.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 24, 2015
Satirically acute, intricately structured and deftly paced, it is at heart stout, good and untainted by easy sentiment.
June 24, 2015
After a few good scenes, the plot gets too tricky, and the filmmakers keep walloping us with one chase scene after another.
June 24, 2015
A dismal and mean-spirited sequel to one of the best movies of the 1980s.
October 28, 2010
one-half a very bad movie and one-half a very good movie
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
