A sequel that slips more than the original.
This movie continues after the first one where the heroine from the
first one gives birth to the son of the Fly Scientist.
She gives birth to the inhuman new born. Looks like a regular human boy
but it isn't. His IQ is higher than an average human and he ages faster
than a regular human too. The company the boy's father worked at is
holding him as a test subject, because he won't fit perfectly in the
At age 5, he resembles a full grown teen. They offer him a place at the
company to continue his father's research and a place of his own.
All seem great to the kid, but he doesn't know that he'll soon become a
new Fly creature.
This sequel is alright, follows a similar idea like before, only it
doesn't have the ingredients for a well done sequel. Those who liked
the first one might either hate it or like it. Either way there's
really nothing too special about it. Again rent it first for your own
opinion on it. But warn it has plenty of gross out parts..

Like father like son, the fly 2's evolving nature is as vigorous as part 1. There is no coming back, when Martin Brundle lets the animal loose. It is a phenomenon..

The son of the original "fly" ages fast and becomes another fly-man but he got help from a good friend who turned him back to human.
ms of the Telepods, believing the Telepods are the key for worldwide domination. Martin ages at an accelerated rate (being the equivalent of 20 human years old at the age of 5), and the fly genes he inherited from his father begin to transform him into Martinfly, who, unlike his sickly father, is a very deadly force to be reckoned with. Befriended by beautiful computer specialist Beth Logan, Martin sets out for a way to cure himself, discovering that the answer lies within the Telepods... .
fabulous man , astonishing .
Well... it could have been worse
Okay so we're not talking about a work of art here people. Even worse
this is a sequel to one very good movie that didn't require
continuation of any form. But still, I have to admit it turned out to
be much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Granted, yes the
focus was more on sheer effects rather than story, but it still proved
coherent and entertaining.
As you have probably found out by now, "The Fly II" is a direct sequel
to David Cronenberg's complex and rather though invoking film of the
same name. Which in turns was a remake of 1950s movie but well, that's
another story. What I meant by "direct sequel" is that instead of
leaving the viewer to make his own decision about what happens after
the original's end, "The Fly II" creates a direct continuation of that
story. Here the main character is the son of Seth Brundle
protagonist/antagonist of the first part. Five years after being born
he has fully grown up into an adult but is also constantly monitored by
an "evil" (he of course does not know that) corporation that hopes to
exploit his and his father's rather unique genes. Of course as every
"good" sequel goes, it tries to emulate the originals success and that
is probably the reason why Mick Garris felt the need to add a love
interest for the main character. Nevermind if that wasn't the reason
why Cronenberg was able to create a very very good movie. But oh well,
if he did it by adding a female lead that falls in love with the
protagonist why can't we? Needless to say as most sequels go, the
resulting effect is that of a shallow imitation that totally misses the
point of the original.
The characters themselves weren't much good either. Well you should
have guessed that by now, with this being a sequel and all. The two
main leads aren't really all that interesting, their dialogue is a
total lackluster and their relationship lacked the chemistry of
Goldblum and Davis in the original. The villains are ... well...
villains thus they're evil, thus it's going to be good watching them
die, thus there isn't any strong characterization to them. We wan't
them to die, right? Considering the mediocre script I have to say the
actors did reasonably well, so no complaints there.
Now what actually saves this movie from the hellish pit of horrible
sequels are in fact the last 30 or so minutes of it. Probably by this
point Garris had finally realized that he couldn't write a script whose
quality can compare to that of the first movie so instead he cuts it
down to a good old fashion revenge finale. Not to give away too much of
the plot but let's just say that half-human half-fly hybrids are some
mean sons of bitches and leave it at that. The effectiveness of this
final part of the film is boosted by some very good make-up and gore
effects. "The Fly" costume itself looks very intimidating and as every
bit as good as the one in the original. This is probably helped by the
fact that Chris Walas the movie's director and effects expert is also
the same person who did the effects in Cronenberg's film.
Well, considering the limitations of "the sequel" as a whole, "The Fly
II" did adequately well. It's by no means even close to the quality of
the first part but as a stand alone purely horror film it's enjoyable,
thanks to the good effects and formulatic revenge finale.
Special message to all those who thought the movie was crap because of
the "Dog Scene" - talk about a bunch of P.E.T.A. lovers. This is a
horror movie ! If you don't know why it's called that please go check
around there are a lot of places where you could get a good definition
of what this genre is about and what type of feelings it's supposed to
invoke in the viewer..
