    It's a tremendous and audacious idea. So many sequels to movies are really remakes, just broadly changing character names or settings, but "Back to the Future Part II" is the only sequel that takes place during its own first film. Full Review

  • The movie is fun, mostly because it's so screwy. Full Review

  • Not as good as 1 or 3 but solidly entertaining. Full Review

  • It’s still huge fun though, its alternative timelines painting a surprisingly dark slice of dire consequence. Full Review

  • Zemeckis' fascination with having characters interact at different ages of their lives hurts the film visually, and strains credibility past the breaking point, by forcing him to rely on some very cheesy makeup designs. Full Review
