Storyline

Seth Brundle was a renowned scientist whose warped experiments with teleportation transformed him into a man/fly hybrid called BrundleFly. A few months after the BrundleFly insect met its demise by his lover's, Veronica, shotgun, she dies while giving birth to their son, Martin. Seth's corrupt employer, Bartok, adopts Martin, only so Martin can solve the new problems that the still-functioning TelePods present and to use him as a science project because of the dormant insect genes. Martin is now fully grown, even though he is five, and the fly genes begin to awaken and make him just like dear, dead dad. With the help of his girlfriend, Beth, they go to wherever they can find a possible cure before Bartok finds them and brings them back, but not before Martin finishes his transformation into MartinFly, the deadliest of the BrundleFly species.

Is this a joke?
21 July 1999 | by Cloud-20See all my reviews

I watched this movie recently because I liked the first one. I don't know why I watched the whole thing. This movie is horrible. It wasn't remotely scary. I ended up laughing more in this film but not at the little comedy bits but at the movie itself. It was just so bad. How could someone like this film even if your a fan of this first Fly. It's so fake too. Remember that scene when the lady was working in the lab with the fly by herself? Come on!! Or the part when the panicking scientist is walking down the hall with the flashlight the size of a laser pointer? What is this a joke? Don't waste your time with this film even if your a big fan of this first one. This movie gets a 1/10
