Review (contains spoilers):

I don’t like this one as much as the first film.  I just feel like Back to the Future was more streamlined and thought out…but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good film.

The shenanigans have the same feel as the first movie…really it’s a good continuation to the series.  The events don’t feel out of place to the story.  The ending is about what you’d expect and the overall visuals are consistent. Its just set in the future…not the past.

Though now that we are in 2021 and 2015 is well past where we are it is kind of fun to see what the designers imagined for 2015. And what the reality actually was.

I think that one of the big reasons I don’t like this film as much is that Biff is a fairly big character in it and he just isn’t a character that I want to see more or know more about.  I like the general storyline with Jennifer and Marty having to save their kids…I just could have done without more Biff….

Totally worth the watch.  But sometimes I like to pretend that this trilogy is actually just two movies…more on that later.


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
