Overview

Chris Walas, the makeup and animatronics director on David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly, takes a stab at directorial duties in this sequel. Before Seth Brundle morphed into scrap metal in the original The Fly, he managed to leave behind the seed of his legacy, and at the start of The Fly 2 his son, Martin Eric Stoltz, has suffered an accelerated growth, thanks to his fly genes. Although played by Stoltz, Martin is supposed to be only five human years old, and unaware of his imminent transformation into a fly. All his life, Martin has been confined to a laboratory at Bartok Industries, where evil CEO Bartok Lee Richardson plans to breed a new race of super flies. Martin spends his days working in the lab experimenting with teleportation. But then Martin meets Beth Daphne Zuniga, an attractive researcher. Martin is attracted to her, but not only do his hormones kick in, so do his fly genes. Soon, Martin begins to transform into a bug just like his father. Desperate to stop his transformation, he wreaks revenge upon Bartok while trying the find a mate with which to swap his unwanted fly genes before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Does The Fly 2 live up to the high level of inspiration and craftsmanship displayed in the 1986 version of The Fly? No. The Fly 2 has some undeniable flaws: it's about ten minutes too long for a film with such a simple storyline and, with the exception of Bartok, all of Martin's tormentors are one-dimensional caricatures. However, it's not really fair to judge it by such standards. The Fly 2 is essentially a late '80s update of the 1950s teen-oriented monster-movie formula. The script, whose final drafts were penned by a young Frank Darabont, approaches the process of Martin's mutation with imagination and sympathy. It also works in some anticorporate sentiments that were unexpectedly subversive for the time. FX artist-turned-director Chris Walas isn't the master stylist that Cronenberg is, but he handles the material with gusto (especially in the numerous effects-oriented scenes) and thankfully bypasses any overt campiness in his approach to the film. Best of all, The Fly 2 has a fantastic lead cast: Eric Stoltz underplays his tormented hero role nicely, Daphne Zuniga makes a genuinely appealing love interest, and Lee Richardson makes his villainous role mysterious and menacing in a subtle way. In short, The Fly 2 isn't the best of the horror sequels, but it works nicely on a programmer-status level.
