Movie Reviews

Director: Peter Hewitt

Starring: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin, Joss Ackland and William Sadler



Review by Joseph Paul John McCarthy

SYNOPSIS:

In the year 2691, San Dimas, California. It is a very peaceful, tranquil community. Unfortunately, not everybody was happy about it. A man named Chuck De Nomolos is planning to change history and create his own society torn up by war and violence. He is doing so by creating cybernetic duplicates of Bill and Ted and send them back into 1991, where the real Bill and Ted are preparing for a concert contest called the "Battle of the Bands". What the robots have to do is kill the real Bill and Ted, take their places and give out a different speech for De Nomolos. However, they do succeed in killing Bill and Ted and sent them to the afterlife, Bill and Ted had defeated the grim reaper "Death" and were given a chance to be alive again. But, they must now stop their robotic doppelgangers and save not only their girlfriends Joanna and Elizabeth, but the future.

REVIEW:

This is one of the few sequels to actually rival its original and that’s difficult considering that the last film had its characters travelling through time. Always an extra star or two in my ratings system. This one sees the main characters travelling th

‘Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey’ starts off in San Dimas, California in the 27th century, Rufus (George Carlin) is teaching a class of students when De Nomolos (Joss Ackland) breaks in in order to steal the time travelling phone booth. He uses this to send two robot versions of Bill and Ted back to the day when they are about to win the battle of the bands competition. The robots promptly kill Bill and Ted and destroy their re

We then follow Bill and Ted as they ditch the Grim Reaper and set about trying to save their girlfriends from the ‘evil robot usses’. They go through Hell, death’s domain and eventually heaven.

Admittedly the acting isn’t quite as good as the original, for some reason both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have hammed up their characters, particularly Alex Winters character, Bill; I figure it must have just been, possibly, a directorial thing. Although I don’t know. The style of the film reminds me of an Edgar Wright film. Movements are occasionally exaggerated by sound effects; such as swish and “thunk” noises when they wouldn’t normally occur. This is a good thing and adds to the comedy of the film.

This film has a lot more comedic moments both obvious and subtle. Once again the premise is pretty ridiculous however this isn’t ever acknowledged by the characters. Playing a game of Battleships or Twister against death isn’t odd to any of the characters in the film.

The script for ‘Bill and Ted’ is just as air tight and funny as the original, everything has been thought out logically even the most abnormal atypical scenes in the film. Although this seems to end in the last 10 minutes or so of the film, the end just I even think Bill and Ted’s speech at the end is pretty awesome and moving. Not to mention that this is one of the greatest endings to a film ever!

You know what makes this such an awesome film though? Everything is possible in the Bill and Ted universe. Everything! Time Travel, utopian civilisations, the afterlife, aliens, even the Easter Bunny exists. Apparently Ted met him 10 years previously when he stole his younger brothers Easter basket.

This is a great film, it’s fun for everyone, the whole family, friends, frenemies, dudes and dudettes. And that’s why it made it into my Top 100 Time Travel Movies as the 10th greatest time travel film.
