Added DiffLines:

* RapidAging: Martin ages at four times the normal human rate. He knows that this is abnormal; he just isn't aware of the actual cause of it. Bartok and his underlings tell him that he inherited a rapid aging disorder from his father, who ultimately succumbed to it, and convince Martin that finishing Seth's work could provide a cure. Only later does Martin what really happened to his father and what this means for him.


Added DiffLines:

* SeriesContinuityError: Martin learns what ''really'' happened to his father via the latter's explanation to Veronica when he allowed her to see him again after a month's estrangement on his part, recycling some footage from the first film in the process. Trouble is, that wasn't videotaped in-universe.


* ActorAllusion: Eric Stoltz's character's name in ''The Fly II'' is Martin Brundle, and the creature he transforms into is nicknamed "Martinfly." Eric was originally cast as Marty [=Mc=]Fly in ''Film/BackToTheFuture,'' until he was replaced by Creator/MichaelJFox. Interestingly enough, Creator/JeffGoldblum, who played Martin's father Seth in the [[Film/TheFly1986 original 1986 film]], was considered for the role of Doc Brown in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' also until he was replaced by his ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossTheEighthDimension'' co-star Creator/ChristopherLloyd.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGrotesque: In contrast to his father's [[TragicMonster mutation]], Martin's transformation retains his sanity, intellect, and sense of morals.

to:

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: The first film was a 9 but this takes it up to 10 with an exponentially bigger body count, more maimings, and the fact that the audience is supposed to be on Martinfly's side and cheer on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. In the original, Seth's growing inhumanity and the cruelty he inflicted on others was treated as a tragic, horrifying fall from grace.

* EvilGloating: Scorby is a petty asshole security guard who stops to laugh at Martin and gloat about taping him and Beth in bed. Martin takes the opportunity to grab him, throw him through a window and escape.

* ActionizedSequel: Features more gun related action scenes than the first and the fact Martinfly is more formidable then his sickly Brundlefly father from the first film.

Added DiffLines:

* ItCanThink: Even in his monstrous form, Martinfly still possesses his human intellect, enough to demonstrate his mind has not been affected by the transformation. He understands how Bartok's technology works, he uses trickery to get the jump on his enemies, and even pets a dog that poses no threat to him.

Added DiffLines:

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Anton Bartok acts like a kind father figure to Martin, and is very much the only person there who treats him kindly. But it's all a lie; he only sees Martin as a useful tool for his corporate interests.
