IN A NUTSHELL: DOES WHAT A TIME TRAVEL MOVIE IS SUPPOSED TO DO!

This sequel of the superb "Back To The Future" is a very earnest attempt to follow a winning formula up with a truly worthwhile effort in this sequel. Complex, yes, but interesting. Unfortunately, at times it gets a bit too mechanically contrived with the time sequence derivations, and I find myself mentally checking the continuity which detracts from the theme. Nevertheless, if you liked the first "Back To The Future" you will probably enjoy this movie. All the characters are present from the original and they are playing multiple generations almost simultaneously. After all, isn't that what a time travel ovie is supposed to do?

Marty McFly and Doctor Emmett Brown travels to the future to prevent Marty's future son from facing jail time. They ultimately succeed, and when they travel back to the present (1985), they find everything to be entirely different than the way they left it. They find the source of this problem, and they must fix it in order to return 1985 to it's former state.
Highly enternaining with some humour and great special effects makes this a great film. I like the fact that some scenes from Part 1 are incorporated in this movie. This incorporation is what makes this movie very entartaining... especially the scenes where we see two Martys, or two Doc Browns. I would highly recommend this movie!

In 1989, Universal Studios, director Robert Zemeckis and writer/producer Bob Gale brought us Back to the Future Part II. This second film has gotten some bad reviews, but it really is an underrated sequel. Marty(Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown(Christopher Lloyd) travel to the year 2015 to stop Griff Tannen from sending Marty McFly Jr. to jail. While in the future, Marty buys a sports almanac and plans to use it to bet on sporting events in the past. Doc Brown throws the almanac in the trash and Old Biff Tannen(Thomas F. Wilson) fishes it out of the garbage can. Old Biff steals the DeLorean time machine and gives the book to himself in the past. When Marty and Doc Brown return to 1985, Hill Valley, California has been turned into a crime-filled, gritty, polluted dystopia. Biff is filthy rich and married to Marty's mother, Lorraine(Lea Thompson). Marty finds out that George McFly was murdered in 1973! Marty and Doc Brown must travel to the year 1955 and destroy the sports almanac in order to repair the damage to the time line. Claudia Wells played Jennifer Parker in the first film. In the sequels, Jennifer is played by Elisabeth Shue. Crispin Glover didn't want to play George McFly in the sequels. He's filled in with actor Jeffrey Wisemann playing George McFly, still photos of Glover, and stock footage.
Back to the Future Part II opens with credits playing over stock footage left over from Firefox(1982). Alan Silvestri polished and enhanced some of his music cues from the first Back to the Future. Back to the Future Part II treats us to the sight of Marty using a Hover Board. In 1989, some people thought they were real. We also get to see more of the flying DeLorean. There's sight gags such as Jaws 19 playing in a movie theater and a Max Headroom version of Michael Jackson in the Cafe 80's.

This is a dvd trilogy we desperatly need. There are a lot of us out there who love these films enough to have the trilogy. I like the way Robert Zemeckis works his magic and transcends his talents. The way he used both time settings from part one and then added the very intrigueing setting of the future just blows my mind. It gives me alot of inspiration to see a film with such creativity. I seem to catch myself watching one of the three films at least once a week. I would like very much to own the trilogy if one was to be released. So for all you fans out there lets get our votes in and get that trilogy out. The sooner it comes out the sooner we can sit back and enjoy.

I am a big fan of the Back to the Future series, and I think the second one is the best. This one starts out where Marty McFly has recently returned from the 50's and is about to start relaxing when..................Doc Brown comes in and tells Marty he has to go to the future with him to save one of his future kids. While in the futur, Marty takes the place of his son, who looks like him, and tell's Biff's grandson he does not want to particapate in whatever get Marty's son in trouble. After that is settled Marty buys a sports almanac. He plans to go back to the 80's and win money on predictions (or already-known-answers) from the book. But, Biff steals the book, steals the time machine, goes to the 50's, gives young Biff the book, and soon Biff becomes powerful, rich, and married to Marty's mother. So now Marty has to go back to the 50's, get the book back, and safely return to the 80's without screwing anything up. How? Watch this GREAT movie to find out!

Though many people demed this one to be way over-budgeted and not may laughs as the first, it still is very good. The story takes place immediately after the first, as in most Rob Zemckis sequels. Marty McFly Just got back from the 50's from saving his parent's fate and his in the time traveling DeLorean that Doc Brown created. But before Marty and Girlfriend Jennifer can relax, Doc shows up saying that Marty's kids are in deep trouble. They travel again to 2015 (which, although seems a bit "80's-ish",it still is very well done, with flying cars and all.) to fix the mistakes. After meeting an older Biff, the nemesis from the first film, Marty Purchases a Sports Aliminac, in a very clever scheme in winning money, but Doc throws in away,in order to save existance. But when the the team gets back from 2015 to 1985, the 1985 Hill Valley that we know and love is a pit hole of filth, money, gangs and greed. It turns out that older Biff got his hands on the Alminac that Marty Puchased, took the DeLorean and went back in time to the younger Biff we knew and gave it to him to buy. He became so rich and greedy from the money, that he turned 1985 upside down. Now, Marty, Doc and Enstein (Doc's Dog) must go back to 1955 to take back the Alminac before the future is destroyed!
BTTF2 is very well done for a sequel, espacilly the finale in which the gang goes back to 1955, in which most of the orginal scenes were re-shot to make a different angle for the film, since Marty sees himself many times in action getting his parents back (the object of the first film). Many of the original cast returned, including Micheal J. Fox, Lea Tompson, Crispin Glover and Christopher Lloyd.
