Marty McFly has only just gotten back from the past, when he is once again picked up by Dr. Emmett Brown and sent through time to the future. Marty's job in the future is to pose as his own son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. Unfortunately, things get worse when the future changes the present. Written by
Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly) and Thomas F. Wilson (Biff Tannen) are the only actors who play their exact same characters young and old in four different time periods: 1955, 1985, 1985-Alternate, and 2015. Both Thompson and Wilson also appear in 1885 in Back to the Future Part III (1990), Thompson as the wife of Hill Valley's first McFly and Wilson as his Mad Dog Tannen, his 20th century characters ancestor.

The DeLorean that lands in the alley in 2015 has smaller cooling vents, thrusters for hover mode. They do not overlap the tail lights of the car like they are shown to everyplace else in the movies. It also appears to be smaller in every dimension. See more »
Back to the Future Part II (1989) was green lighted after the success of the first film. The film follows the further adventures of Marty and Doc Brown. This film and the third installment were filmed back to back. However the complexity of the storyline turned off many of the fans of the original. But this is what I enjoyed about this movie. Instead of being the same old run-of-the-mill by the numbers sequel, the film makers decided to do something different and make this a brain twister film. The beauty of this movie is that you have to pay close attention to it.
The film takes place right after the events of part one. Doc Brown comes back from the future to help Marty get his kid out of trouble. Instead of leaving well enough alone, all three of them head off to the future to try and change events. They managed to pull it off but unfortunately they tore a fabric in time due to Marty being greedy and the nosy efforts of Doc Brown. Can Doc and Marty safely restore the space and time continuum before the universe collapses upon itself?
A fun sequel with a few cast changes (Elizabeth Shue now portrays Marty's girlfriend whilst Crispin Glover is no longer with in the film except in stock footage). Most of the original players return to reprise their original roles. Michael J. Fox stretches his acting abilities by playing his son and daughter as well as his older self. If you enjoyed the first film then you'll really want to watch this one (if you haven't already).
