Seth Brundle was a renowned scientist whose warped experiments with teleportation transformed him into a man/fly hybrid called BrundleFly. A few months after the BrundleFly insect met its demise by his lover's, Veronica, shotgun, she dies while giving birth to their son, Martin. Seth's corrupt employer, Bartok, adopts Martin, only so Martin can solve the new problems that the still-functioning TelePods present and to use him as a science project because of the dormant insect genes. Martin is now fully grown, even though he is five, and the fly genes begin to awaken and make him just like dear, dead dad. With the help of his girlfriend, Beth, they go to wherever they can find a possible cure before Bartok finds them and brings them back, but not before Martin finishes his transformation into MartinFly, the deadliest of the BrundleFly species.Written by
When Martin breaks into the security office and finds the video recording of Beth and himself having sex. He discovers footage of Seth Brundle telling Veronica Quaife about his disfigurement, caused by a fly being trapped inside the Telepod with him, which they were fused together. In that scene in the original film, it was not recorded on videotape. See more »

In the end credits for The Fly (1986), CWI effects artist Guy Hudson used the pseudonym "Sir Guy of Hudson". For The Fly II (1989)'s credits, a "II" was added to the same pseudonym. See more »
A scene of Martin being heckled by children and vomiting corrosive enzymes on the windshield their car in response (during a stop for fast food on the way to Stathis Borans' home). The kids are little league players. They're terrified as the vomit creates a huge hole in the car. The little league coach angrily throws the food for the kids down in anger. This scene was filmed but deleted. See more »

It's not Cronenberg, but it's not total trash either
Seth Brundle's offspring, Martin, is born and begins his life in a controlled lab environment at Bartok Industries. He grows at an accelerated rate both physically and intellectually. After seeing some of the ruthless ethic that the company has towards its experiments and the length they go for results Martin goes on a rampage and escapes. Also, his mysterious and idling chromosomes start to become active and he begins to mutate. First he has better strength and speed and soon he turns into a monster.
Much of the visceral symbols and themes from David Cronenberg's film are lost at the expense of gore and special effects, but parts of this obviously inferior film are nonetheless engaging. The character's motivation is clear, the atmosphere is pretty defined, and the film's last act is pretty exciting. Featuring some good gore effects and a ruthless act of revenge against an evil character ultimately make this film more satisfying than its reputation would suggest. 5/10
Rated R for violence, gore/gruesome images, and a sex scene
