Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996) Review:

Like for the first “Tremors” film, this sequel does a very good job of captivating the audience by establishing some simple rules about how can the worms and their larvae get you. Throughout the film, the characters then need to follow and improve with these rules to stay alive (similarly as Jurassic Park with the famous “their vision is based on the motion”).

The good point is now that the creatures are much more diverse than in the first Tremors 1, allowing the movie to introduce more rules and more diversity into the action. This eliminates the repetitiveness of the action and the few boring moments that were the weakness of the first movie. The many tricks that the characters use to escape the monsters are innovative and well-thought.

The funny characters from the first Tremors are still here, making this movie hilarious at times. Slightly better than the first Tremors, I would still only recommend it to those who like creature movies.
