Review

Our Score
Wayne's World heroes Wayne and Garth may have won at the box office, but Bill and Ted remain the original and best dudes. This time around the two airheads (played with enormous energy by Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves) are still trying to get their band together, when they are murdered by their robotic doppelgangers sent from the future by the evil Joss Ackland. They must then face the Grim Reaper if they are to become the saviours of mankind. This sequel lacks the inspired stupidity of the original but it is still a hoot, especially in the knowing nods to Ingmar Bergman's classic The Seventh Seal as the gormless duo play battleships with the Reaper. Reeves and Winter are once again cheerfully inept, and British director Peter Hewitt stages the spectacular set pieces with some panache. Mostly excellent.

Concluded.
