Things I Like: Crocodile Dundee II (1988 Film)

Crocodile Dundee II came out the year I was born, so you can say I was certainly very late when it came to seeing the movie. I watched the original for the first time in April. It wasn’t the greatest film, but I did really like it. I heard the sequel wasn’t as good, but I knew I wouldn’t watch the third film regardless as I hear it’s horrid.

It takes place not long after the events of the first film. Sue Charlton’s ex-husband Bob takes photographs of some evil stuff in Columbia. He’s murdered shortly after, but not before mailing the pictures to Sue. The villains know of this, and they take Sue before she knows what’s going on.

Michael “Crocodile” Dundee receives a telephone call with Sue informing him of her dire situation. For once Dundee takes things a lot more seriously. He meets one of the bad guys to discuss terms, but when things go wrong, Dundee must take drastic measures to save his girlfriend.

I actually liked the sequel way more than critics did back in 1988. It’s certainly less realistic than the original, and a somewhat different tone of a movie too. Though the character of Crocodile Dundee is too likable to ignore. There were a lot of good laughs, and I thought there were many good uses for the talents of a unbelievable guy from the Australian Outback.
