Back to the Future Part II (1989)

back-to-the-future-part-ii-poster

After visiting 2015, Marty McFly must repeat his visit to 1955 to prevent disastrous changes to 1985… without interfering with his first trip. (IMDb)

The brilliant irony and wacky humour from the first BttF installment are noticeably lacking here (although the two Biffs are great), with most of the jokes and deja vu moments feeling overdone. On the other hand, the plot reaches new levels of darkness and complexity, with loads of mind-bending time travel (the trip back to 1955 and the first movie is particularly enjoyable) and the introduction of alternate (and disturbing) realities, making Marty and Doc’s adventures even more thrilling.

7.7/10

  1. I didn’t actually see this one until the whole trilogy came out on DVD. Having seen the 3rd one in the meantime, and not feeling like I missed anything, it was hard to get into this one. But the scene where Marty goes back to the dance and the dark 1985 Hill Valley were definitely memorable snippets.
