'Crocodile Dundee II' is one of the very rare movie sequels that is as good, if not better than the original. However in installment two we are given more than just a light, romantic comedy. Mic's new wife Sue has just learned that her ex-husband has been murdered by a South American drug cartel. When a package arrives in the mail from the deceased containing evidence against the killers Sue becomes their next target. Obviously unsafe in the city, Mic and Sue return to the Australian Outback where Mic is most at home and better prepared to protect his wife.

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!'

I saw Crocodile Dundee II for the first time three weeks ago and heartily recommend it. I saw its prequel when it originally was in theaters in the eighties, and would suggest this sequel especially to adults who have seen the first one. The general mood remains that of a comedy, and the characters are drawn almost to stereotype, but there is too much of a sense of friendship among the characters for this ever to become offensive. Hogan conveys both good hearted kindness and a dark sense of danger in equal measure. I especially enjoyed Kozlowski's character, who is a movie heroine of an independent type of which we still do not see enough. Near the end of the movie her decisiveness will bring on the conclusion of the plot. I also hope that I get a chance to see more of Dingo, whose charismatic supporting character is onscreen for too little time.

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.

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!

"Crocodile Dundee II" (1988) Not As Good As First "Crocodile Dundee" Movie Due To Writing Problems In Part Two.

The first "Crocodile Dundee" (1986) movie was a wonderful comedy.

The second "Crocodile Dundee" (1988) movie was intended to cash in on the first movie, which it probably did....it probably made much more money for the owners of the movie than the first movie did.

Nobody expected the first movie to be a big hit. Everybody expected the second movie to be a hit, and movie owners could (probably did) cut great deals with movie house owners, television presentation people, and sellers of VHS and DVD home videos.

The second movie made the owners much richer than the first movie did.

But.........sadly, it wasn't (isn't) as good a movie as the first one.

Old story with comedies of fame...going back to "The Thin Man" (1934) which was a big, unexpected hit when it first came out, and resulted in many sequels, none as good as the first movie.

There are exceptions to the rule that follow-up movies are never as good as initial movies...."Godfather II" (1974) is an example.

An example closer to home is the original Johnny Weismuller "Tarzan" (1932) movie which was followed up by an even better "Tarzan" sequel titled "Tarzan And His Mate" (1934 which co-starred the lovely Maureen O'Sullivan (Mia Farrow's mother!) who swam totally nude with her handsome husband, Johnny Weismuller as "Tarzan" in a sort of underwater ballet quite breathtaking to see, and quite tasteful, nude though the dancers were in pre-code 1934 times.

"Crocodile Dundee" (1986) is sometimes compared to "Tarzan In New York" (1930's or 1940's) which uses the same jokes......
