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.

Alternate Versions

Alternate Ending: On the 2-Disc version of the Fly II, there is a alternate ending on Disc 1, under the special features section. The scene takes place in the daytime on Beth Logan's houseboat. It shows her bringing some food to Martin, who's sitting down on the dock. She asks, "How do you feel?" He replies, "Much better." As he is saying this, the camera zooms in on his eyes. One eye is an almost blackish color, while the other one is green. See more »

This is a real sequel ! I watched this movie in 1993 on a sunday night and I really enjoyed!The leading couple (Eric Stoltz and the always beautifull Daphne Zuniga) is very atractive. I love the twist in the end cause I thought that the fly would die just like the first part of this movie. Of course I have a copy of this film that I keep very carefully. I must say that the bad comments right here don´t bother me because I know that the people are very jelous with the first part of The Fly and I don´t blame them.But this film is a jewell if you compare it with the trash that is made in this days.
