Trivia

When comparing scars with Gunn, Poinsettia shows him a bite mark near her right shoulder that she says she got at a Mötley Crüe concert (an in-joke because at the time co-star Heather Locklear was married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee). See more »

Goofs

When Lana prepares to take a bath, she starts filling the tub then walks away wearing only a bathrobe. A moment later, she's in the hall at the elevator door, where she gives the jeep keys to an escaping Abby. Presumably, Lana then enters the elevator because Swamp Thing does not encounter her as he exits her suite (after entering through the bathtub pipes). So, the plot hole is there's no apparent reason for Lana to start filling the bathtub then immediately leave her suite in her robe with the jeep keys intending to go to another part of the mansion via the elevator.

Great sequel!
17 September 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite of the series.Unlike the first one this is more of a super hero film.This movie is very good and it delivers! Louis Jourdan is great and Dick Durock performs as Swamp Thing in my opinion a lot better than hie did in the original.Sarah Douglas is so neat and so beautiful! I don`t think she has looked any better and her performance is very good.Heather Locklear was good and looked great as always.Ace Mask was funny.The monster and action battles are very good.If you haven't seen any Swamp Thing film do see the original fist but I recommend seeing this one more. I`m sure it'll be your favorite of the two.
