"Child's Play 2" is the first sequel to the popular 1988 original. The first film was a very entertaining horror film. The second movie in the series isn't as good, but it's not real bad either. However, the filmmakers took the gory route for this one. All the graphic violence makes it less effective. The first movie worked so well because it kept the violence down to a minimal. Oh the first film was violent, but not as violent as this one. But it's stylish look somehow makes it watchable. And, like the original, it's entertaining to watch. Young Alex Vincent reprises his role from the original as Andy Barclay, the boy who in this movie goes to live with foster parents while his mother seeks psychiatric help (from the events in "Child's Play"). Andy himself still isn't all together, and when Chucky the killer doll re-enters his life again, watch out! "Child's Play 2" may not be as good as "Child's Play", but it sure is better than the next movie in the series, "Child's Play 3" (which I thought was awful). I haven't seen the fourth movie yet ("Bride of Chucky"), so I can't voice my opinion on that one at the moment.

**1/2 (out of four)

Alternate Versions

Numerous scenes cut from the original version appear on the USA network's version:

  • Two different scenes with Joanne and Phil discussing Andy and the adoption agency letting them keep the children they adopt.
  • An argument between two men in the dark after the worker is electrocuted and the sound of Chucky running. The man lands differently after smashing through the glass window after being electrocuted.
  • Before the assistant calls his girlfriend, he calls his wife and tells her he has to work late.
  • A different ending shows Chucky's face being created through the machines, then Chucky gives an evil smile, much like the beginning of Child's Play 3.
  • A scene where Kyle stops in an alleyway to search for the newspaper delivery truck with Andy and Chucky in it.
  • Kyle tells Chucky "playtime's over" just before he gets disfigured.
  • Kyle assures Andy that he can make his way past the eyeball machine while trying to escape the factory.
  • A scene right after Phil nearly runs into a Play Pal's truck, Joanne asks Andy if he's alright.
  • A different ending is shown than the one in the theatrical release. It shows Kyle and Andy coming out of the factory, after Andy asks where home is, Kyle responds by saying she has no idea then says it looked like she was stuck with Andy, which is followed by a scene in the factory where Chucky's face is made with an evil grin on it.
