‘Crocodile’ Dundee II (1988)

JOHN CORNELL

Bil’s rating (out of 5): BB.5

Australia/USA, 1988.  .  Screenplay by , , based on characters created by Paul Hogan.  Cinematography by . Produced by John Cornell, .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

As is par for the course, the sequel doesn’t measure up to the original. Following his adventures from the land down under to New York City, Mick (the winningly charming ) is now happily living with his lady love () in the Big Apple and enjoying marital bliss. This time, Kozlowski gets an evil druglord hot on her tail and Hogan has to take her back to Australia in order to protect her. All that was fun and spontaneous in the first installment has been traded in for a Lethal Weapon-style plot and the typical chases and shootouts that come with it. Stick with the real thing.
