[It's] hard to imagine even die-hard genre fans who adore the original have much that's all that positive to say about this unfortunate misfire.

This derivative sequel lacks the potency of its predecessor, which clearly possessed "More Brains!"

Return of the Living Dead Part II lacks the stinging humor Dan O'Bannon brought to the original.

If you're going to force a sequel on us, you could at least get creative rather than just cribbing from Dan O'Bannon's original script.

It seems to be doing so many of the same things that made the first one great. It fails, in that it does them all poorly.

The only saving grace in a totally misguided effort is the performance of character actor Bruns who is quite funny as the slightly off-the-wall doctor.

One of short series that gave James Karen his place in horror movie history.

Not even a nuclear explosion, it seems, can prevent a sequel to a tongue-in-cheek zombie pic.
October 29, 2004
Given the abundance of films like this, Return 2 is hardly a classic, but it's far better than it has any right to be.
| Original Score: 3/5
October 25, 2004
The movie's high points are its makeup and special effects. The movie's low points are almost everything else.

... has nothing to do with George Romero's 1968 cult favorite ''Night of the Living Dead.''
November 5, 2002
The first film was an amusing, winking zombiefest that glorified its own cheekiness. The sequel tries to do bigger and better and thus is less and worse.
| Original Score: 2/5
January 1, 2000
An occasional clever joke but in general a degradation of this branch of the series.
