This is a very touching sequel to the first movie and is very well done. My children really loved it but didn't like being so sad at the end.

Some what better than Part I
T.C. | Right Behind Carl Albert High School | 08/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, some people may completely disagree that this is better than Part I but I can't stand the first one. Its WAY to sad and depressing, not to say it isn't worth seeing if you havn't seen it yet. "Where the Red Fern Grows 2" is years after the first one and Billy is now returning home after fighting in World War II. His grandpa (Wilford Brimley) suprises him with two red-bone hounds just like the ones he had when he was a boy. At first he doesn't accept them but finally takes them to train them to track down racoons. Has a little bit of humor and is to a point more mature than the first. Even though you won't be able to hold back tears at the end, you will treasure this classic later on and come back to see it again and again. A must-have."
Bad storyline, worse acting
Hound Hunter | Kenna, WV | 12/22/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The storyline was weak, the acting was worse.

I hadn't seen part 1 since I was a kid, I ordered both the original and part 2. We watched the original Sunday and my wife an I enjoyed it. We watched Part 2 on Wednesday, and both were rolling our eyes throughout.
The actor portraying Billy did a poor job. It is obvious that he is not a dog person, or was over acting.

The story line left a lot of holes, kind of like reading the back cover of a book instead of reading the book. Not many exciting moments throughout.

Overall the acting was overdone and no character really captured you attention.

Overall it was a feeble attempt to capture the basics of the first movie that clearly missed the mark."
Stick with Part 1!
Joe Comer | Robinson, IL United States | 02/27/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Nearly everything about this film pales in comparison to the original! From the technical aspects-cinematography, editing, sound, ect.-to the writing and overall acting, it makes you want to pop the first film in the DVD player and watch it yet again.One of the criteria for judging a movie such as this is how easily and naturally it causes the tears to flow. With part 1, I was in tears with no difficulty at all. The drama was so real and spontaneous. But with the second film you get the feeling they are trying to grab your eyeballs to squeeze every little tear out of them. This makes for very strained proceedings indeed.Everything considered, Wilford Brimley and Doug McKeon DO manage to rise slightly above the material and keep this film from getting a one-star rating but I still think you're better off sticking with the original."
