Basic Instinct 2

Critics Consensus

Unable to match the suspense and titilation of its predecessor, Basic Instinct 2 boasts a plot so ludicrous and predictable it borders on "so-bad-it's-good."

Prosecutors handling her case send Tramell to see psychiatrist Michael Glass (David Morrissey).

Audience Reviews for Basic Instinct 2

  • Apr 25, 2013
    Sharon Stone returns to the role that made her famous in Basic Instinct 2. Novelist Catherine Tramell is accused of murder once again, and faces off with a psychiatrist who believes that she has a risk addiction that drives her to commit murder. The plot is overly convoluted and tries too hard to be ambiguous and have clever twists. The writing is remarkably poor (especially for Stone's character), and has none of the seduction or intrigue that the original film had. An inferior sequel, Basic Instinct 2 is tasteless and uninspired.

    There is a glimpse of what "Basic Instinct 2" could be in the first five minutes of the film, when Sharon Stone is speeding down the road in a hot car while touching herself. The film looks sleek and stylish, one-upping the original film's sexually intense opening. But after that, the film falls into a race against itself, trying to recreate the same moments from the original without giving us anything. Sharon Stone teetered on being evil in the original, but in the sequel, we know how the previous film ended and therefore know Stone's character for what she is, destroying the illusion. Stone is sexy as ever, still taking control of her scenes, but none of the other characters add up and the whodunit portion of the film falls flat and melodramatic.

    'Basic Instinct 2' shouldn't be approached with high expectations, but the desire to observe a sexy, trashy and erotic thriller. You do that, and you'll be fine.
