While it doesn't quite reach the level of genius achieved by the original, this is still high-octane entertainment with some brilliant plotting and great humor.

Time travel and its consequences is fascinating stuff and the resulting interactions of doubles is pulled off well on a technical level. The future is as cool as the alternate 1985 is horrific. For better and worse, this is more colorful and more complex than the original which is revisited in inventive fashion. Once again, Marty and we are in for one hell of a cliffhanger but, in fact, the whole last act is beyond brilliant.

Not as great as the first but it's still entertaining and it does a superb job of re-enacting Marty and Doc avoiding interaction with themselves from the past movie. Seeing the cast repeat their characters from the future and past is great and it's still got "the touch" of the first one. While it does do a great job of explaining what happened in the first movie be sure to watch it first to really "get" what's going on.

Sillier and not quite up to the sensational caliber of the first film, but as far as pure no-frills fun goes, few films measure up. The first act in the future is silly sci-fi, but when they reach the hellish alternate 1985, it becomes a balls-out rollicking adventure epic, eventually looping back into the first film in a way that blew my fucking mind as a kid. Love it.

This always felt like two different movies to me. The first part, in the future, is wonderful and every bit as good as the dirst film. The second half starts to falter and at times requires suspension of disbelief to go into overdrive. Still a lot of fun, though.

Call me crazy, but I actually prefer this to the original. Well, maybe not quite, but hot-damn it comes close, and definitely packs my favourite moments of the trilogy. Sports Almanac from the future -- how many pool junkies have wished they could land one of those? The return to 1955 for the finale, taking a second look at the original film's events while making sure to dodge their alternate selves, is pulled off masterfully. Zemeckis has a knack for fun films, and this is one of his best.

Any fan of the first BTTF movie should see this. In a sci-fi form, this one is the most interestingly plotted since it incorporates elements of a possible semi-utopia and complete dystopia as the result of time travel. As a result, this one is the darkest in the series, but the best one, in my opinion.

No longer a nostalgic and light hearted look into the past while Marty is trying to get home, that dynamic is replaced by cynical attempts to manipulate the future by tweaking the past. It's just not nearly as funny or entertaining as the first film.

If the first film was a fun look at time travel, this film is absolutely chaotic look. It often feels like the film switches gears every few scenes. Not content with the attempted rape in the first film, Biff shows up with some fine domestic abuse for the whole family. Biff, he's one bad customer, let me tell you. "Did you ever find Michael J. Fox attractive when he'd put on a dress and play his sister?"

The writing isn't as strong as in Part I and there are some plot holes and logical flaws, especially concerning the whole alternate timeline thing. Still, it's entertaining and well worth seeing for fans of the first movie.

This was even more badass than the first one. The insane Biff-world of 1985 flipped my shit as a kid and got me interested in time travel. Granted, these movies are far from scientific, but they're pretty fucking cool.

You have a time machine. Why do you feel the need to go back to the exact moment old Biff gave young Biff the almanac? Why don't you go back, scout it out, then go back again to the point old Biff arrives? Then, before he meets his young self, you beat the shit out of him...I mean, he had it coming for a long time, and he's about to die anyway. Plus, it's not like anyone can trace the crime, it's 1955 for crissakes.

It forces the plot a bit, but it's still a lot of fun. Not as good as the first, but only in that feels less original, being a sequel. In terms of craftmanship, it's equal, and it's also a technical achievement in that it manages to be a crossover with its own prequel. Score is not a grade.

By far, the weakest part of the trilogy, with a confusing plot that jumps around many time periods and strains credibility of it's limits, and a heavy reliance on re-using gags from the first film, rather than building on them and crafting its own. Also, they thought people would still be using fax machines in 2015? Ha! How ridiculous

It's fascinating how much this movie is a meta-commentary on the original, and on the tropes and stories it came out of. I've only seen a story so wrapped around the specific details of another story when I was deep in the bowels of comic book continuity porn - but this is fast and action-packed and fun. (Even if it's also very white, very male, and very late-80s.) My favorite of the three, I think.

(Viewed in 2014): B.T.T.F captured lightning in a bottle and set a new standard for blockbuster films. Whether a sequel was necessary is open to debate, but, financial imperatives aside, the idea of reteaming Marty and Doc for more wacky adventures was impossible to resist. It is flawed to be sure, but it is fun watching these characters return to the events of the first film and dart across different timelines, resulting in temporal discontinuity and a cluttered cacophony of crazy conceits.

The second "Back to The Future" is better than the first and third for one reason, that is that it's in the future. Zemeckis made sure that all of them are good, but I doubt there's a person on the planet who doesn't know that.

BTTF Part II with a great deal of care, attention to detail and consistency continues the frantic fun from where it's predocessor left off. From the outset and throughout, this is a thrilling and throughly enjoyable adventure and the timeline is playfully juggled and reworked. Michael J. Fox & Christopher Lloyd remain as loveable as ever and there are so many both pleasingly familiar & refreshingly new moments. And what better day for me to review this film on other than the 21/10/2015.

Although at times this sequel feels like a cash-in, (I don't think anyone would have complained if the original was simply a stand alone film) as a lot of things feel recycled, Pt. II is a decent enough film on its own without being compared to the original (although it never reaches its heights). The film has better performances all round, with some of the actors doing numerous roles (Wilson is actually a pretty threatening villain) but it isn't quite as fun and can't settle on a tone.

This is bummer of a sequel. What the first film did so well in staying out of its own way, this film implodes itself with. The plot holes are enormous and unavoidable. The acting is rough, the whole movie is so formulaic it's painful. It has very few redeeming qualities and is a huge downgrade from the original.

Back to the Future II is worn at the seams and frayed at the edges, a filmic representation of a concept being simultaneously pushed to its absolutes limits and forced to regress to stop itself from imploding. The winning simplicity of the first is pushed aside for a less cohesive, complex narrative and multiple jaunts to past, present, and future, none of which feel adequately paced or focused on. It's insistence on retreading the plot beats of the first is amusing, but feels half-hearted.

A brilliant view of the future, as well as the world that might be. Zemeckis really couldn't have done any better with all the tricks that make this both a true sequel as well as an homage to the first film. The Enchantment Under the Sea scene in particular is masterfully done.

Comes darn close to matching the brilliance of the previous entry; the first act is a little too distracted, but once we hit 1985-A, the movie gains the focus it needs. And the sequence where we see 1955's dance from "just out of frame" is anything but a gimmick.

The whole trilogy: These are, quite simply, the BEST family friendly movies ever made. They have aged extremely well because the 80's scenes come off like an exaggeration of the era just like the 50's scenes do. The sci-fi aspects of the plot are just intricate enough to make you think a little, but not so thick as to confuse a child. The villain is menacing enough to be effective but bumbling enough to be harmless without degenerating into a farce. Fun. Likeable. Perfect.

Rewatched after listening to Blank Check. First 1/3 was fun especially the callbacks to the 1st film. Alt-1985 Biff didn't have as much screen time as I recalled, but he was the most memorable character. If anything, the final 1/3 seemed to drag but it was neat to see them revisit 1965. Young Lea Thompson needed more screen time since the old makeup for all characters just look bad. Overall, this film is great if you watch right after the 1st, but confusing if you didn't. Fav scene: diner.

Lacks the joy and frantic energy of the first film, and turns a little too vividly bleak in its mid-section, but still an enjoyable sequel. Third act is the best, as events from Part 1 are cleverly interwoven into the plot (and love Doc's mad rant attempting to explain "there are two of me here, and there are two of you here...") Fox and Lloyd make a terrific team, and the film is full of sly in-jokes (love the prophetic dumped laser discs in an early scene).

Today seemed like a good day to watch this for the first time. Continues the entertainment of the first film and joyfully indulges in its sequel status like no other sequel I've seen. The time-traveling is once again full of fun, with various time-lines showing us the campy comedic terror of the present and the future. It feels confident in its comedy, with the aggressive, yet cartoonish Biff actually a blast to see in three different forms now.

Amusing, but silly, sequel to the original classic movie. If you've recently watched the first movie, it's especially disappointing, as they repeat so many scenes from it. Watching an actor play their own children, especially their own daughter, is a horribly unfunny thing. The lack of Crispin Glover really hurts the film, too. Still, can be fun if you're in the mood.

Continuing where Back to the Future left off, Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown use the DeLorean time machine to travel to 2015. While there, Biff Tannen steals the DeLorean to travel back to give his teenage self a sports almanac, creating an alternative, dystopian 1985. McFly and Doc are forced to travel to 1955 to repair the timeline. The film has a cliffhanger ending that is resolved in Part III. Back to the Future Part II was released in the United States on November 22, 1989. The fi
