BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II (1989 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Back to the Future Part II—highly anticipated sequel to Back to the Future—performs without the same flare as the first in the series. The film definitely has its high points but seems a little flat in comparison with the first release of this story concept.

Storyline

Dr. Emmet ‘Doc’ Brown (Christopher Lloyd) returns to 1985 from the future year of 2015 to inform Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and his girlfriend, Jennifer Parker (Elisabeth Shue), that Marty needs to launch into the year 2015 to ‘fix’ the children that Marty and Jennifer are going to have. Marty and Jennifer transport into an entirely new era complete with flying cars. ‘Doc’ instructs Marty to ‘fit in’ by acting like his son, Marty McFly, Jr. (Michael J. Fox). ‘Doc’ also instructs Marty how to prevent Marty, Jr. from going to prison and the show is on as Marty, Sr. begins interacting with his children.

Yes. Because we have to finish the story, don’t we?
