Bill and Ted Go to Hell (USA) (working title)
Some time has past since Bill and Ted had to pass history and took an excellent adventure through time. Now it is another
time peroid where history can change and Charkes De Nomolos is making plans to make that happen. De Nomolos thinks the teaching
of peace and love and being excellent to each other is wrong and he wants to rule the future with an iron hand.
He steals the time phone booth and sends two evil android copies of Bill and Ted to pose as future selfs in order to gain
their trust and murder them. Now trapped in the after life, Bill and Ted must avoid the Grim Reaper and escape Hell in order
to save the Princessess and the future.
I thought that the first movie was cool and excellent, but the second movie is even cooler. Evil robot monsters, good robot
monsters. Aliens, demons, evil Easter Bunnies. Yeah, that was cool. The writing was cool, I wish they didn't make the Grim
Reaper so human. I think I understand why they went that way, but still I wish they could have found another way. Bill and
Ted are their excellent selves and the effects are wicked assume. Except for the whole Reaper thing, it was a perfect movie.
At least we can see Death, which is more then I can say for FINAL DESTINATION. But here's the hitch, if you didn't like the
first movie, then there's no way in hell that you will like this sequel. But if you liked the first movie, then you will like
their BOGUS JOURNEY, 9 STARS.
I couldn't agree more, this is one of the finest comedies in the 1990s'. The effects, the characters, the story, all great.
I do have to agree about the Grim Reaper, not that the actor didn't go a good job, he does. But tradition has the reaper
as a monster skeleton. That's it. Anyway, that's why I'm giving 9 STARS as well.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STORY (The story works great)
+ MONSTERS (This one has monsters.)
+ CHARACTERS (Like the first movie, this has excellent characters.)
+ EFFECTS (Perfect effects.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- REAPER (Using a human instead of a walking skeleton monster was slightly a let down.)
- FAN BASED (If you aren't a big fan of the first movie, then this isn't the flick for you.)
