Paul Hogan does a masterful job of retaining all the light-hearted, boyish charm displayed in the original film while at the same time showing us a darker, determined Dundee willing to stand against the evil drug lords threatening his newfound happiness. We can now add the genre of action/adventure to the Crocodile Dundee legacy, the 'Hero from Down-Under!'
The movie starts in New York and then moves to the Northern Territory as our heroes outrun a vicious drug lord who is bent on revenge. All the scenes shot in the bush are gorgeous. The most powerful scene, and the one that stands out for leaving comedy behind in favor of something approaching the spiritual, comes when Dundee must call for help from atop a ridge surrounded by miles and miles of wilderness. Later on, during the nineties, Hollywood put out a zillion movies on the theme of western people gone native, and they would have been better if they had taken an egalitarian tone as this movie does, comedy though it is.
But mainly, this is a movie meant to be fun. If Crocodile Dundee II has anything serious to say, it is that mutual respect is the way to go, and for that I give it five stars.
What other sense of a sequel were we supposed to be provided with? I mean, they had to think of something. And this was it! It has a more intense conflict, still with a light tone applied to it-- and much humor. We are allowed a look into the life of Crocodile Dundee, and what he looks like when being confronted with a conflict on his own turf down under. It was nice to see him play games and run numbers on the bad guys. Quite memorable this film was, indeed!
Be sure to check out the third installment, "Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles" It's not as serious of a tone, but still a great watch!
Maybe I was biased because I played this with some kids present and was pleasantly surprised to hear almost no profanity, which I couldn't say was the case in the first film. It was a "cleaner" movie, and still an equally entertaining one with a good mix of drama, action, comedy and even some good music thrown in. The film has no lulls and 110 minutes go by pretty quickly.
The first half of this movie takes place in New York City, where we last saw "Mick Dundee" (Paul Hogan). The second half, the crocodile man takes his bride (Linda Kozlowski) back to the outback in Australia. Hogan was never more entertaining and, of course, feeling comfortable back in his home territory.
This is just a fun ride all the way and, yes, to use a cliché, good family entertainment.
Personally, this movie is one of my favorite movies of all time. I think it was quite a bit more entertaining than the original, although I thoroughly enjoyed that too. The music really sets the mood in both films and Mick Dundee (Paul Hogan) can always make me chuckle. By all means this movie is not for everyone. I would recommend it to those who like comedies, action, adventure, or to watch as a family (although the second movie has more violence than the first). An unorthodox action/comedy which in my opinion is far superior to the majority of terrible comedies nowadays.
