More entertaining but not as scary as the firstBy spengos from Bucks , 28 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Following on from the first film Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) is put into care where he recovers from his traumatic experience in the first film. Andy gets snapped up by foster parents Joanne and Phil Simpson (Jenny Agutter and Gerrit Graham), who are wary of his condition but soon warm to him and quickly except him as part of the family.
Unknown to his foster parents and his new friend Kyle (Christine Elise) who is also being fostered by the couple, Andys memory is still plagued by the possessed Good Guys doll Chucky. Who, in the first film, tried to take over Andy's body to dispose of his plastic exterior before its too late and he is stuck in the doll forever.
Overall I enjoyed this film and I actually thought it was more entertaining than the first. There is less suspense in this film and because of this its no way as scary.
Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif) is now a lot more animated and seems to be more human-like compared to the first film. There are plenty of cheesy one liners and bad language from Chucky to make you laugh.
The special effects are good considering the time it was made (1990). But, the best part of the film in my opinion is the ending which takes place back in the toy factory. Chucky proves once again that he is quite relentless in his methods.
Its going to take a lot to finish off this Good Guy!

Another great comedy value movieBy a customer from Normal for Norfolk , 28 Apr 2010Very good, would recomend for the comedy value.. Looking forward to the last 3 in the series... It has some scary bits but most of it is tongue in cheek
Not the best horror film ever made.By GlynIngram (10 reviews) from Bracknell , 26 Jan 2010Some years ago, I attended a not-very-good poetry reading evening at an arts theatre in Camberley. Jenny Agutter was responsible for the affair and, sometime afterwards, she hung around in the bar area to collect money for a charity and even sign a few autographs. People had brought along programmes from Shakespeare productions shed previously performed in and a few fans waited about to express their delight at previous landmark films shed been in including, of course, The Railway Children and Logans Run.
I, however, hung around at the back, clutching her only masterpiece. Yes. I was at that poetry evening with something nobody else had. See, I possessed a copy of Childs Play 2 in my right-hand and I was waiting eagerly for its star to sign it.
When I got to the front of the queue which, in all honesty, didnt take very long she looked at the DVD case and then back at me. She looked genuinely horrified, almost as if Id placed down a series of grainy photographs of her husband being whipped by a dominatrix.
Why, I asked, Did you agree to do it? She eventually laughed a little and then said thoughtfully, Well, I liked the first one and when I was asked to I didnt want to hear her feeble excuses. When you were murdered, is that you with blood all over your body or was it just a model? She thought about this and then said: I dont remember. She then went on to say that shed starred in An American Werewolf in London because it was funny as well as scary, and that she assumed that this film would follow a similar path. 'I liked the first one,' she said. Hmmm.
She eventually signed my DVD along with the slightly-better Walkabout and below my name, she even wrote a little note that read: Beware of dolls. Which was very lovely of her. Of course, Ms Agutter is clearly very embarrassed she agreed to do the movie, and it likely wasnt the foray into Hollywood she likely hoped it would be. That said, in all honesty, its a just-about passable sequel with Chucky on a murderous rampage once again. The plot hole concerning why nobody seems able (or even particularly motivated) to just give Chucky a good hard kick to get him away is not resolved any more than it was in the first effort, and the explanation for his resurrection is as stupid as ever. There are, however, a couple of mildly funny moments including a brief sequence where Chucky decides to send a primary school teacher his own brand of fan mail and it all ends quite quickly. Its probably no better or worse than the first film and certainly better than the later sequels which saw the series work towards a rapid decline.

The best Childs PlayBy a customer from Stockport , 24 Nov 2008I think this is the best out of all of the Childs Play movies - it's a bit more gruesome than the the others.
