Movie Review | Back to the Future Part II
Back to the Future Part II (PN 1995.9 .S26 B33 2010 pt. 2) is the second film in the Back to the Future trilogy. It starts at the end of the first film in 1985, when Marty’s (the main character) friend Emmet Brown “Doc” comes and tells him that he’s been to the future. He continues to tell Marty that there is a big problem with his kids in the future and that Marty is the only one who can fix it. Marty must go 30 years into the future to the year 2015 in order to save his kids. This leads to a complex situation involving his son, his dad’s nemesis, flying cars, a hover board, and a truckload of manure.
I really liked this movie. I like how it closely ties to the other two movies in the trilogy, and the more you watch the series, the more connections you can find between the films. It is a fast paced movie that keeps you on your toes from start to finish. It takes no time jumping straight into the storyline, which makes things interesting. There are parts in the movie that you think everything has been resolved, and that Marty can return to his own time period, but it always seems to be a false sense of security. I guess that is the problem with time travel. There is always something else that you have to think about! I would give this a 4 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to anyone looking for a fun science-fiction film.
