Direct to video goodness!

Tremors is a 1990 American monster movie, one that has sunk itself into the hearts of many people across the world. The concept behind the movie is so ridiculous that it's a wonder it was ever made. To many people's surprise, it was a very well made film with great actor's and a lot of great comedy moments. Fast forward to 1996 and we now have a direct to video sequel, one that lacks the leading actor from the previous film. If that doesn't sound like a disaster, you are simply mad. But don't go away quite yet, this sucker is not as bad as it seems.

The idea behind Tremors 2 is just as silly as the first film. Kevin Bacon's Val character has went off and married Rhonda (Finn Carter) from the first movie leaving poor Earl all by his lonesome. Whilst sucking down some beers and trying to get his Ostrich's to breed, he gets an offer to help eradicate a Graboid infestation at a Mexican oilfield. With his new side kick Grady Hoover by his side, Earl takes the offer. Tremors 2 also sees the return of our favourite gun nut Burt. Equipped with enough explosives to win Vietnam, the team sets off to kick some butt subterranean dinosaur worm butt.

If that sounds completely ridiculous to you, that's because it is. But it's the utter nuttiness of the whole thing that makes the movie. The actors whilst having their funny quips and jokes don't ham it up too much. They keep the whole situation just serious enough to put it in line with the original movie. That is until the last scenario of the film where it just becomes hilariously over the top. The monster effects are all great with the Graboids looking just as good as they did in the first film. There's plenty of gore to be seen and it all looks delightfully juicy. The CGI leaves a little to be desired but that's to be expected from 1996.

The bluray transfer of Tremors 2 was a nice surprise. I read about the quality being a bit on the low side but compared to the old DVD, this is a nice step up. Some scenes leave a little to be desired but the overall product looks sharp, clear and a huge improvement on the poor standard definition copy I use to have. It actually made me realise how nice some of this movie actually looks. The gigantic open fields of green etc look really nice here and the film overall has a nice natural look to it.

Tremors 2 isn't exactly going to set the world on fire and I doubt that was the intentions of the director. But it is still a great time to be had and must have for fans of the original film. Seeing Burt and Earl is always great fun, it's just a shame Kevin Bacon was reportedly too embarrassed to do it. But as it is, it's honestly one of the funniest and enjoyable underrated monster movie sequels of recent time. Don't be put off by the low price, the direct to DVD label or the awful follow up movies.

Tremors 2 is a very fun movie and one you can enjoy safely with the whole family. Assuming you're as weird as ours!

A great series of monster films with one of the screen's finest created characters - Burt Gummer
Verified purchase
The Tremors franchise are a great selection of films and whilst the first is a really good example of an entertaining and light hearted film, the character of Burt Gummer is a sprinkle of real magic.

I just love the guy. His independence, his generosity, his practicality and his appreciation of firepower. Number 3 is probably my favourite film for it's rightful celebration of the man but the others are good and number 5, which I assumed would be shocking, isn't half bad. It's not great and I didn't like Burt getting a little sidelined by the new character but the whole YouTube vlog intro at the beginning for him was just fabulous.

Tremors are a great series of films and this should really adorn most film fans cupboards.

Surprisingly not awful
Verified purchase
Retro Movie night with my kids and I chose this. We'd watched the first film a month before and all enjoyed it and the kids wanted to do the 2nd, but I was a bit reluctant as I hadn't seen it like I had the original, and sequels like this aren't normally as good. It wasn't as good because it lacked originality, and lacked Kevin Bacon, but it did keep Fred Ward and the dude who played gun crazy Burt. I would give it 3 stars, but it gets an extra one for making my kids howl with laughter, for no apparent reason as far as I could tell except maybe the absurdity of it all!

I feel I was denied critical, need to know, information...

For a direct-to-video sequel, this is a solid film. If not as deftly written as the original, it is certainly enjoyable, possessing wit and humour. Fred Ward's Earl is lessened by the absence of Kevin Bacon's Val, as Christopher Gartin's Grady is a weaker foil. However the film comes in to its own with the triumphal return of Michael Gross' Burt Gummer (it is not for nothing that he has become a legendary figure on the internet).

Not as good as the original
Verified purchase
This film was okay, but not as good as the original as it was slightly jokey rather than scary. Actually,
I fell asleep part way through, and the giant worm monsters under the ground had turned into sort
of bony little dinosaurs by the time I woke up. Okay, if you want a light, silly film ... or are aged eight.

New depths for monsters.
Verified purchase
This is monster horror reaching new depths🤣🤣 If you missed the first in the series then DO go check it out. Not too gruesome which is good as many of todays are gross over the top and with little enjoyable back drop re story etc.
