Free Great Movies Rating & Review
While not as highly regarded as the original, today F/X 2 holds up as better than F/X (1986). The film delivers more action, more special effects, and is superior thanks in large part to a robot clown named Bluey. Director Richard Franklin keeps things moving aided by a wonderful, saxophone-heavy score by the great Lalo Schifrin. Brian Dennehy and Bryan Brown team up this time to battle more corrupt cops and mafia men who have stolen some gold medallions. The plot is silly but the effects are fun and our hero Rollie Tyler comes up with more tricks than MacGyver to outwit the bad guys.
F/X2 (also known as F/X2: The Deadly Art of Illusion) is a 1991 American action thriller film directed by Richard Franklin and starring Bryan Brown and Brian Dennehy. It is a sequel to the 1986 film F/X. This was Franklin's final American film before he returned to his native Australia.
