Elevator Pitch Doc and Marty go forward in time to 2015, but while there an event occurs which changes the past and so they must return to 1955 in an effort to put things right. There are problems. Biff is super rich and is married to Marty’s mother and they must avoid being seen by themselves on their previous visit to the date.
Content Some fun in 2015 (oh didn’t it turn out like that!) with future cars and the hoverboard. A visit to the grim reality of 1989 with the town in chaos and Biff in a version of the Trump Tower. Then a load of fun back in 1955 as they try to put things right and so re-establish the present.
A View The critics said that this outing lacked the energy of the first film, but honestly I laughed a lot. It was great fun, and we general public have liked it very much. It made a lot of money, but not quite as much as Part I. If you are going to watch it bear in mind that it is concluded in BTTF part III.
