I can't beleive I'm the first to mention this! There are a few "good" (wink-wink) scenes which have been removed from this DVD version! A lesbian scene and part of Stone's hot tub scene are gone. It' seems clear that the makers of this film are depserately trying to lose as much money as possible. Although perhaps this DVD is selling well for them since they've went to the extent of flat out lieing to the consumer about it's content. Studio DVD labels make me laugh with their "Unrated-Uncut" sellpoint that always amounts to almost nothing interesting.. but this is unusual since the DVD is actually MISSING scenes. Tragic.

Basic Instinct 2 is fine, campy fun. People who see this and take it too seriously simply just won't get it. This film is about the most menacing, conniving and manipulating vixen every put forth. Everyone who gets involved with her either dies or gets taken through the ringer. She uses sex as a weapon, and she's always one step ahead of everyone.

Sure, Sharon is trying a bit too hard in this film--the excessive hair-flipping is a bit much--but this is totally understandable. The first film was her best performance ever, plus it was the film that put her on the map. In the first film she had a unique, charming quality where should go from the sweetest, condescending seductress to the most evil woman around in the same sentence. Here, we find a much more hardened Catherine Tramell. Is this how Sharon's acting has evolved, or is this how Catherine has evolved as a person 14 years after the original? You be the judge. Regardless, Stone at age 47 is flat-out still hot.

The biggest flaw I see in this film--like the first film--is a less-than-sexy, whatever leading man. Sure Michael Douglas is a fine actor, but come on, they could've picked someone much sexier. The same goes for this film, Clive Owen would have been an excellent choice, or even Pierce Brosnan. David Morrissey just doesn't cut it.

I also feel shorted because--after seeing the uncut promo reel--there's been a ton of things cut out of the R-rated version. For example, in the reel Sharon is seen with yet another girlfriend hanging out with her in her stunning London flat; what happened to her? They are also shown in a threesome. So, to get the R-rating they had to cut the entire character out? This is why I long for the uncut, unrated version.

This film was given a thorough cremation by a lot of critics. Nevertheless, I can't help wondering if people made up their minds without any sense of objectivity. The storyline was certainly not a classic but it was entertaining. Unlike the first one Stone made in 1992, this sequel relied more on a more serious storyline rather than mere sex.I felt it succeeded in showing a more watchable version. Personally, I thought it had just the right blend of spice and drama to captivate an audience. I have seen some rather unkind remarks about Sharon Stone in this film. In my humble opinion she looked fabulous. After all she had been through with ilness etc she deserved a lot of credit. Her acting was good, she looked stunning and her beauty speaks for itself. Bravo!

Catherine Tramell is the perfect role for Sharon Stone who, though not a great actress is certainly a screen "personality" : someone that commands your attention. You simply cannot take your eyes off of her perennially, it seems, gorgeous face and body.

In her other roles, other than arguably in "Casino," there is a falseness in Stone's approach as if there is a scrim between her and us...her technique "shows" and she is simply not effective.

But in both "Basic Instincts," Stone has found the role of a lifetime: one in which everything about her persona, her acting abilities and her charisma come together and form a cogent performance. And believe me, Stone's Catherine Tramell is a chew-the-scenery, gut-splitting, batten-down-the-hatches p-e-r-f-o-r-m-a-n-c-e.

"Basic Instinct 2" is much better than it has any right to be: the screenplay, is pretty good, David Morrissey as Dr. Andrew Glass: Catherine's foil, plaything, Psychiatrist, though at first kind of a stick in the mud...ends up being an interesting, edgy character. The sublime Charlotte Rampling is also on hand to add weight and substance to the proceedings as Glass' mentor. But the real acting honors go to David Thewlis as a slimy, maybe-lying-maybe not lying, conniving, profanity spouting detective Roy Washburn. Thewlis chews through all the plot machinations and screenplay inconsistencies with his sterling acting chops.

"Basic Instinct 2" is ultimately an effective entertainment though not quite on the level of a so-bad-it's good, way, way over-the-top movie like "Showgirls." If anything "B.I. 2" is too safe, too perfect looking for it's own good.

The first "Basic Instinct" was so cheesy and idiotic, it worked. It was a good, possibly even great, movie that still has fans drooling over the Sharon Stone leg-crossing scene. "Basic Instinct 2" has the entire setup for bad sequel...Different writer, different director, different location, and a script that seems to be a reimagining of the original. This movie flopped at the Box Office, got horrible reviews, but Roger Ebert said that it was a movie that would hold your attention. That's true and not just because of the multiple graphic sex scenes. Sharon Stone (who manages to play her character with the same suave charisma she used in the first movie) returns as novelist Catherine Trammel, who has relocated to London. The film opens, fittingly, as Catherine drives down streets at 110 mph; While her passenger um...Uses his hand for something...Anyway...Catherine ends up crashing the car into a river and escapes, but her companion is dead and she's now a murder suspect. Pretty soon, a criminal psychologist named Michael Glass (David Morrissey) comes into the picture and develops an obsession with Catherine. Eventually, they begin having an affair as more people die around her. The movie tries to make it a mystery as to what exactly is going on, but opts to do the same thing the first film did. It pretty much is a virtual remake; Except Michael Douglas was great in the first film and Morrissey is like a 2 on a 10 scale for charisma. The movie is entertaining, if you look at it for just entertainment. As I said, it's cheesy and apparently unmotivated. It's certainly not the worst sequel ever made. Many people will be disappointed, most people will not agree with this review...But, I kinda liked it.

GRADE: B-
