Only a snob could resist such a generous level of lunacy.

... not merely the rare sequel that is funnier than the original, it is one of the funniest comedies of its time, a veritable live-action cartoon from Joe Dante at his most unrestrained.

"Gremlins" deserved a much better follow up than "The New Batch."
June 12, 2013
Campy horror sequel has unrelenting cartoonish violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 22, 2012
An odd, but rewarding sequel that ups the ante on comedy and effects, and manages to offer a refreshing spoof of the first film.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

No, this was not your daddy's Gremlins movie. This was an entirely different kind of beast that was just made up of the same DNA.

Any movie with former Dracula Christopher Lee as a scientist who creates a gremlin-bat can't be all bad, but there's a reason we never received a Gremlins 3.

This uninhibited and uproarious monster bash, directed by Joe Dante, is more quick-witted and ironic than the original; it sets forth a savvy, slaphappy agenda before the opening credits and follows it straight through to the end, and even beyond.
June 19, 2010
An amazing achievement despite a total lack of sincerity, and any film that can successfully work Slayer's grinding tune Angel of Death into the action is a masterpiece as far as I'm concerned.

A riot from start to finish.

March 26, 2009
An hilarious sequel featuring equal parts creature slapstick for the small fry and satirical barbs for adults.
August 14, 2006
Actually better than the original in many ways: it's darker and more cynical, contains more pop culture references and takes on a bigger target.
February 9, 2006
There's almost enough in-joke ingenuity to justify the total absence of plot.
January 19, 2006
A loving celebration, and biting critique, of our pop culture-saturated times.

Wilder than the first....a laugh riot!
| Original Score: 3/5
August 30, 2004
Speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with much more verve, cleverness and good humor than the film on which it is based. Add this to the very short list of sequels that neatly surpass their predecessors.
November 12, 2003
Surprisingly agreeable sequel.
| Original Score: 4/5
August 14, 2003
Simply: This is Christopher Lee's 200th film. He plays a character called Dr. Catheter. I love movies.
July 30, 2003
Surprisingly thought-provoking as extended commentary on modern life and morality.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
