Overview

When the mysterious death of a major athlete prompts Scotland Yard detective Roy Washburn (David Thewlis) to order the investigation of best-selling crime novelist Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone), criminal psychiatrist Dr. Michael Glass (David Morrissey) is slowly drawn into Tramell's seductive world of lies and sexual intrigue in director Michael Caton-Jones belated sequel to Paul Verhoeven's 1992 erotic thriller. Upon relocating from San Francisco to London, alluring crime novelist Tramell once again finds herself pursued by authorities when all clues point to her being somehow involved in the death of a popular sports superstar. Intellectually intrigued by his new subject and undeniably drawn to her physically, Dr. Glass finds it increasingly difficult to resist the cunning black widow's devious web of deception and physical temptation. When the professional boundaries between Glass and Trammel come shattering down in a shower of unbridled lust, Dr. Glass is forced to make a difficult decision that could mean the end of both his professional career, and his life.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A sequel nearly 14 years in the making, Basic Instinct 2 gives Sharon Stone another whack at the character that -- with the mere crossing of her legs -- made Stone a bona fide superstar and an international sex symbol to boot. Her second outing as sexually voracious Catherine Tramell isn’t quite as provocative as the first one, but it offers the same heady mix of eroticism, deceit, and murder. The setting is now London, where the erotica-writing novelist finds herself once again suspected of homicide. Engaged by the police to discern Catherine’s mind-set, psychologist Michael Glass (David Morrissey) initially shrugs off the suspect’s provocative proposals but eventually succumbs to her charms, which draws him into a vortex of intrigue. Charlotte Rampling provides key support as Michael’s colleague, and David Thewlis impresses with his turn as a police detective obsessed with proving Catherine guilty. Ultimately, the film’s biggest asset is Stone herself, clearly relishing her role and looking just as ravishing as she did in the earlier film.

BASICALLY, it's Basic Instinct 1. The story line is weak and unbelievable. She's pulling the same scam with new victims. Don't waste your time with this one. Believe me. If you've seen Instinct 1, you've seen this before!
