Croc is at it again!,
This review is from: Crocodile Dundee 2 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Crocodile Dundee II is a classic. No matter how much one doesn't like the turn that this second film took, it will always be a memorable sequel. When you create a sequel, you're also supposed to "up" the level of conflict. And that called for a serious tone. But at the same time, they kept it as light as they could. It isn't bad at all. The drug dealers who followed Dundee and his Lady back to Australia were in for a shock.
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!
