Review

Our Score
After the success of the first time-travelling caper a sequel was inevitable, although this time around director Robert Zemeckis is guilty of gilding the lily. Stars Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd return from the original, along with Lea Thompson and Thomas F Wilson, but the script is too clever for its own good and the film gets bogged down by trying to cram in too many ideas and settings (past, future, alternative universes). The effects, however, are even better than in the first film, and the actors certainly enjoy themselves in a baffling array of roles.

Summary

Time-travelling teenager Marty McFly travels to the 21st century, where he has to save his children from a terrible fate. However, this proves to have unforeseen consequences when the future version of arch enemy Biff sees a chance to rewrite history for his own benefit, leaving Marty stuck in a twisted parallel universe. Sci-fi comedy sequel, starring Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
