F/X 2 (1991)

fx-2 “The words “double cross” definitely come to my mind.” – Leo

Number of Times Seen – at least 5 times (Theater in ’91, Cable and 18 Nov 2015)

Brief Synopsis – Former FX man Rollie Tyler is now a toy maker and reluctantly agrees once again to help the police with a sting operation.

My Take on it – This is a rare sequel which is actually almost as good as the original.

A very clever script helps this one because it uses numerous factor that made the first one work well to its advantage and slightly tweaks them to create another fun and complex story.

The clown and supermarket sequences are both extremely memorable and unique and were great fun to watch again.

I love the idea of using effects to outsmart the bad guys and they once again do it very well here.

Watching this series again makes me wonder what ever happened to fun movies like these?

Bottom Line – Very good and fun sequel that utilizes the same factors that made the first movie interesting to watch.  Love the clown sequences and the way Rollie uses effects to outsmart the bad guys over and over.  What ever happened to fun movies like this? Recommended

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When the film was released, it came under fire in the media from effects artists who claimed it was giving away trade secrets. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
