Tremors 2 is funnier and less serious than the first Tremors movie. In this movie their ready for the Graboids, until they change. After this surprise things get more serious, but still retains the laughs.
Tremor fans should watch it at least once.

"The Graboids are back and this time their terrorising a Mexican oil refinery. Depressed and bored with the fact that he was the only one who didn't make money from his experiences in the first film, Earl Bassett quits his ostrich farm in Nevada and heads south to stomp out the Graboids with the help of new recruit Grady Hoover.
When they get there however, they discover that the Graboid is only the first stage in the creature's development and soon they are facing something much more dangerous. Burt Gummer comes to the rescue with a truckload of guns and explosives. Cue lots of blowing up and loads of Graboid guts.
Tremors 2 has a silly, sarcastic sense of humor and a fast pace. There's not one minute of boredom and Fred Ward plays the cantankerous, irritable Earl very well. You'll hardly be missing Kevin Bacon.
The DVD presents the film in a sadly non-anamorphic 1.78:1 transfer. The picture is passable but is not impressive. The sound is Dolby 2.0 and it's no more than average with decent spaciousness and fidelity. A trailer is also included."
A Must-See Sequel

"Years after their first appearance in Perfection, Nevada, those nasty worm monsters have reared their ugly heads in Mexico. So the Mexican authorities call on famed Graboid killer, Earl Bassett (Fred Ward), for help. Joining Earl this time is a goofy Graboid groupie by the name of Grady Hoover (Christopher Gartin). Grady refuses to take the life-and-death nature of Graboid hunting seriously, until he witnesses the awesome power of the ravenous creatures for himself. When Earl and Grady learn of the true magnitude of this new Graboid infestation, Earl enlists the aid of his indomitable survivalist friend, Burt Gummer (Michael Gross...who nearly steals the movie) -- a one man army who comes equipped with enough guns and explosives to destroy the whole country. But the Graboids are getting smarter, meaner, and uglier... This direct-to-video sequel may not be quite as good as the original, but it's pretty close. It is a tad on the silly side, and Kevin Bacon and Reba MacEntire are missing from the cast, but Tremors 2 still has that unique mix of thrills and laughs (and plenty of orange slime!) that made the first film so entertaining. The DVD is short on extras (just the standard trailer and production notes), but this disc deserves a place on your video shelf right beside its predecessor."
Damn worms, never cut you any slack!

"I can still remember the day I first disovered there was such a thing as "Tremors 2". I had seen "Tremors" dusins of times, and it was and is one of my favorite movies. I was with my friend in the video-rental store, and saw this cover under news saying "Tremors 2" I litterally shouted in the store, and my friend and I just HAD to borrow it. "Tremors 2: Aftershocks" is a wonderful sequal. It preserves the wonderfull humor and suspense that the first one did have. I just recently discovered that the two Tremors movies were out on DVD, and I bought the both of them at once. If you liked "Tremors", then you'll like this one, and if you have not seen either, then please do yourself the favour of buying them. And yes, I say buy, because you will want to watch them over and over again."
