Plot holes: After Chucky discovers he is trapped inside the doll's body he blames Andy for avoiding him but even if Chucky had managed to perform the chant in Andy's bedroom or the classroom as well as the basement the chant still wouldn't work as Chucky had spent 2 years in the same doll's body that got destroyed in the previous film. Had Chucky's soul been transfered to another Good-Guy doll as it was the case in the next film Chucky would presumably had been more successful.See more »

Satisfactory sequel, 31 August 2014
Author: bowmanblue from United Kingdom

If you never saw the first 'Child's Play' film... it's about a serial killer whose soul gets trapped inside a children's doll and then goes on to persecute the poor little boy (Andy Barclay) who buys him. Now, after sending the offending dolly back to hell, he's back again (you don't need to know how - basically the same way Freddy, Jason or Michael Myers always comes back - yet - again). And, guess what, Andy Barclay is top of his 'hit list.' Brad Dourif returns to voice the killer doll, Chucky, and he gets it right on the mark again. However, the story does get a little bit repetitive after a while. It focuses around no one believing Andy that his doll is alive (and evil), only to find they're proved wrong when the doll kills them in a grisly manner (rinse and repeat). Plus you can tell who's going to die a mile off - all the adults are pretty horrible and you won't really shed a tear when any of them get gutted. Then there are the lapses in physics, i.e. when a plastic doll can regularly overpower fully-grown adults.

However, despite all its flaw, Child's Play 2 just about does the job. If you liked the first one, this one does its best to keep the franchise going along the same lines. However, if you're new to the films, I'd start off with the first one (it's easily the best and scariest) before seeing if you want to watch this one, too.
