The next level

Cleaner image than the first movie. The creature effects go to the next level too. Great use of all the speakers except the bass speaker which was a little soft. This takes everything to the next level. There is more comedy, more crazy gremlins and that's your lot. Much less serious than the first and I prefer it that way.

Too Many Gremlins In The Kitchen

Six years after the events of the first "Gremlins", Gizmo and Mr. Wing are still living in their small shop located in New York. One day, some money hungry executives for Clamp Industries try and convince Wing that his store needs to be demolished in order to make room for the gigantic Clamp Office Building that is being prepared to be built. A few months later, Mr. Wing passes away and Gizmo is now left out on the streets, the real film begins when he is captured by two scientists for Clamp Industries. Meanwhile, Billy and Kate from the first film are now engaged and just happened to be living in New York where Billy works for Clamp. One thing leads to another and Billy finds Gizmo in the lab. Another thing leads to another thing and bada-bing-bada-boom, Gremlins! Except this time, the gremlins are running loose inside of a twenty story office building. And now they're are new gremlins to run amuck, like the spider gremlin, the bat gremlin, the brain gremlin, the female gremlin, the electric gremlin, the singing gremlins, the trench coat gremlins and the greatest screen villain of all time...the vegetable gremlin.

"Gremlins 2 The New Batch" is a fun sequel, and in places it's somewhat of a parody of the original, which is an interesting move that idea brings in plenty of jokes. But where the film fails is it just has too many ideas and jokes going on for it to just focus on the plot for a second. What would have been nice is a little more character development between Billy and Kate, but no we have to have the gremlins sing "New York, New York" in a pointless musical number. It's all incredibly fun, but when these endless sequences of in joke after in joke keep going on, you can't help but get the feeling that the plot is just sitting around, waiting to move on.

All in all, "Gremlins 2 The New Batch" isn't really a bad film at all. It has interesting ideas and a decent plot, but it feels too manic for it's own good. What the film needs is a nice trim around the edges to cut out some of the fattier areas of it-specifically the endless gremlin scenes. I know it's called gremlins, but gees, we don't need that many.

Trouble in Clamp Towers

A whole lot of the magic of the original Gremlins is kind of lost here in the sequel. But it is a rather timely movie because John Glover's performance as millionaire with an edifice complex among other kinds of complexes Daniel Clamp.

Zach Galligan now a yuppie moved to New York City is reunited with Diz the Mowgli of the first Gremlins. Galligan works for Clamp and the warnings about feeding after midnight and exposure to water are not heeded. As a result the gremlins grow and multiply and take over Clamp Towers.

Story is substituted for gags in this sequel and as a result it's funny but it also loses its classic stature.

I will say this though, one would dearly like to see these gremlins move into the current residences of the mogul tycoon that Glover is modeled on. I'll bet they could do a better job.
