Short circuit 2 not only has 2 of my favourite actors, Fisher Stevens (whom you may remember from the unconventional yet brilliant "Super Mario Bros.") and Michael McKean (The man who needs a mere two-word introduction: Quality Footware). As a team they are tremendous, and combined with the directorial power that Kenneth Johnson wields, together with the charismatic Johnny 5, Tim Blaney, this movie is unstoppable. On a technical level this movie is definitive and as simple as the plot idea may be it is charming and powerful. This is a modern-day masterpiece, and a unique twist on the classic Frankenstein theme. If I could I would give this movie more than ten. FIVE more than ten!
