Movie Reviews

The return to great fun !
Juscelino Liberato De Aquino | MANAUS, AMAZONAS ,BRAZIL | 11/24/2000

"I don't know why,but I enjoy this movie much more than I enjoy Wes Craven's version (pt.1).Maybe because of the effects and the make-up which are cool for a low-budget movie,the characters -which are more interesting and more likeable and the black humor (take the case of the asthmatic monster(!) that fights with our hero).Besides, this movie features Heather Locklear and Sarah Douglas ,good monster fights and a beautiful swamp.To top it off ,I watched part 2 much before I watched part 1.This part 2 has a great beginning,which shows parts of the Swamp Thing's best comic books accompanied by the song "Born on the Bayou",which is a masterpiece.The story : A mad scientist (who has a deadly degenerative disease) does experiments on animals and people to find a cure for his health problem which can also give him immortality and special powers.Only the Swamp thing may offer the mad genius what he is looking for."
Okay, some people are missing the point (yet again)

"I've read alot of negative reviews for this one, and none of the people writing these reviews really seem to grasp the concept of a Jim Wynorski film. Jim Wynorski makes b-movies, ONLY b-movies, and he makes them well. If you're unfamiliar with what a b-movie is, you should'n't be writing a review for this particular film, but I'll give you some background. Remember those old fifties drive-in films, you know, the kind they play on Mystery Science Theater 3000? Stereo-typical characters, guys in rubber suits playing cheesy monsters, and that special 80's touch up, huge breasts every couple of minutes...these are all elements of the b-movie. You're SUPPOSED to make fun of it. You're SUPPOSED to actually enjoy yourself watching a movie for once.
Return of Swamp Thing is an excellent b-movie, and one of Jim Wynorski's best. It's alot different from the original, but alot better, in my opinion. No disrespect to Wes Craven, but Swamp Thing isn't one of his better films. Not as bad as Scream 2, but it's not quite up to par with his usual films.
If you DID enjoy Return of Swamp Thing, I recommend "Not of This Earth" (1986), "Sorority House Massacre II: Nightie Nightmare", and "Hard To Die"."
Human / Vegetable Romance...

"OK, this one is terrible if you're a jaded adult. I admit I hated it utterly. However, it's a kid movie. I mean, there's only one "bad" word in the whole movie, zero blood, no nudity, insufferable characters, lots of gunfire / explosions, and 80s TV-movie production values. SWAMP THING himself is a walking compost heap w/ a heart of mold... er, gold. He battles a leach-man and some hicks in order to save two intensely annoying brats and Abigail (Heather Locklear) from certain doom. Abby's step-dad is none other than Dr. Arcane (Louis Jordan), sociopathic megalomaniac and mad scientist. Arcane's looking for a way to reverse the aging process, apparently by turning people into mutated freakazoids! I found this movie tedious and dumb, but I know I'd have loved it as a kid. Swampy even shows Abby some good ol' fashioned swamp-love! Hallucinegenic seedpods anyone?? So, shift yer brain into neutral and coast through this one! P.S.- If you're just looking for a good Jim Wynorski movie, check out CHOPPING MALL..."
Swamp Thing rules......

"Swamp Thing rules... even though this is a campy movie The Return of Swamp Thing is fun. If you like superhero, monster movies and camp rolled into one then this is the movie for you. The best part of this movie is the opening credits with that rock and roll song. This is one of the better Superhero movies... 10times better than THE Captain America, Fantastic Four and The Punisher movies that were never release. Right up there with Batman Returns and Superman 4."
