Picking up where BACK TO THE FUTURE left off, this effects-laden sequel sends Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd), and a souped-up DeLorean on a newly complex adventure through time. It’s still 1985 in the present, but Doc Brown returns from the future with bad news: in 2015, Marty’s teenaged son is about to make a criminally bad decision. Determined to keep it from happening, Marty joins Doc on a trek to the future, a high-tech land of hoverboards and video screens; once there, Marty impersonates his kid to thwart the bullies bent on recruiting him. Though the mission is right-minded, it has unfortunate effects on the past, causing the pair to revisit 1955 to smooth out -- once again--the wrinkles they accidentally created. Directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis, BACK TO THE FUTURE II wowed audiences with cutting-edge visuals and garnered an Academy Awards nomination for its futuristic special effects.
