Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 11/22/1989
"...[Zemeckis and Gale] skillfully integrate many snippets from the other film into this one....Fox approaches his role as an eternal good sport..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/22/1989
"...FUTURE II's best moments are like a Tex Avery cartoon with live actors, crammed to the edges of the frame with nutty touches....Technically, the film brings multiple role-playing to new deftness..."

Product Description:

Picking up where BACK TO THE FUTURE left off, this effects-laden sequel sends Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd), and a souped-up DeLorean on a newly complex adventure through time. It's still 1985 in the present, but Doc Brown returns from the future with bad news: in 2015, Marty's teenaged son is about to make a criminally bad decision. Determined to keep it from happening, Marty joins Doc on a trek to the future, a high-tech land of hoverboards and video screens; once there, Marty impersonates his kid to thwart the bullies bent on recruiting him. Though the mission is right-minded, it has unfortunate effects on the past, causing the pair to revisit 1955 to smooth out -- once again--the wrinkles they accidentally created. Directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis, BACK TO THE FUTURE II wowed audiences with cutting-edge visuals and garnered an Academy Awards nomination for its futuristic special effects.

Plot Synopsis:

Time-traveling Marty McFly propels himself into the year 2015 in order to keep his future son from going to prison. But while there, he commits a careless error that threatens to disrupt the precarious balance of the space-time continuum. What follows is a dizzying chase back and forth through nearly seven decades in an attempt to set events back into their proper order. And many of the scenes from the first film are revisited, only this time from a slightly different point of view.

Production Notes:

  • The double and triple exposures in the film were shot with the Vistaglide system -- a computerized camera that allows actors to more easily interact with themselves while playing several roles in the same scene. The system was first used in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988), also directed by Roger Zemeckis.
  • Crispin Glover did not work on this sequel (apparently he was unable to come to a financial agreement with the film's producers). He does, however, appear in the film -- in footage from the first movie -- and is also doubled in several scenes by actor Jeffrey Weissman.
  • Shot in DeLuxe color.
  • Selected for the 1989 London Film Festival.
  • Itself a sequel, this film was followed by another sequel: Back to the Future III (1990).
