Sky HighwayBack to the Future II
Reviewed by Jessica Pikorz
It's the year 2015, and Marty McFly, Dr. Brown, and Marty's girlfriend Jennifer are time travelers from 1985. They are traveling in a time machine that Dr. Brown invented. They're in 1985--and then, in a flash of lightning, they're in 2015. Now they are driving in the sky while futuristic cars and taxi cabs drive by!
Back to the Future II was directed by Robert Zemeckis in 1989 at Universal Pictures. Michael J. Fox plays Marty McFly, a nice person who doesn't like being called chicken. He also plays Marty Jr., Marty McFly's teenage kid in 2015. Christopher Lloyd plays Dr. Emmett Brown, a strange inventor who invents the time machine. Thomas F. Wilson plays Biff Tannen, a bully who steals the time machine, and Griff Tannen, Biff's grandson and bully in 2015. Back to the Future II is rated PG.
This funny movie is about what happens when Marty McFly, Dr. Brown, and Marty's girlfriend Jennifer fly through time to 2015 to stop Marty's and Jennifer's future son, Marty Jr. from going to jail. Marty stops Marty Jr. by dressing up as Marty Jr. and saying no to something Biff's grandson Griff tells him to do. This puts Griff and his bully pals in jail instead of Marty Jr.!
But while visiting the future, Marty buys a sports almanac to take with him to 1985--just to make a few bucks betting on sports results. Doc yells at him for being greedy and makes him put it in a trash can. Big mistake! Biff hears Marty's idea, steals the time machine, and takes it to 1955! Old Biff gives the almanac to the young Biff, and tells the young Biff how to make his fortune.
When old Biff comes back to the future, Marty, Jennifer, and Dr. Brown fly in the time machine back to 1985, thinking that their mission is accomplished. But they find a big suprise in 1985! It's been changed--and Biff is a bigshot millionaire who runs the town of Hill Valley, which is an awful place. Marty and Doc see old Biff's cane in the time machine and they figure out what happened. Now they have to set things right--by returning to 1955 again!
I think that Marty is an intriguing character. He takes risks and he never gives up like when he knows he's supposed to save his son. He doesn't just sit there and not care.
I would really recommend this movie. Both kids and adults will like it. I liked it because of the futuristic details, and the plot of the movie really make sense.
