But life is about to become a little more difficult for Jack and the gang. Whistler's brother, E.D. Wardo, has gome back in time and has started a trancer farm under the organization known as GreenWorld. GreenWorld strives to 'clean up the world', but in reality they are kidnapping homeless people and mental patients to become 'tranced'. And they're after Hap, the ancestor of a future Council Member. Jack's quite ready to singe a few trancers, but he isn't expecting his dead wife to show up. Through the power of technology, Alice has been saved from death and sent back to 1991 to help Jack and stop Wardo. The tension mounts as Lena becomes more ...

disappointing sequel
8 September 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson) has lived happily with new wife Lena (Helen Hunt) in L.A. for six years after he sent Whistler back up the line without a body. Whistler's brother E.D. Wardo has gone back to old California. McNulty is given two days to go back to capture him with the help of Jack Deth. Jack's future body is too damaged and he must return in the TCL Chamber. He's been offered a seat on the council. In the present, drunken baseball pitcher Hap Ashby has cleaned up his life and made a fortune from investments. Jack, Lena, Hap, and McNulty in the body of a girl face off against Wardo and his organization Green World which is turning the insane into trancers. Then Jack's deceased wife Alice (Megan Ward) shows up after he helps her escape from Green World.

Trancers is one of my favorite sci-fi B-movies. The world is a fun mash up of sci-fi concepts. There's time-travel, time-dilation, and the zombie-like trancers. There is real charm to the lower budget B-movie. The sequel should be bigger but it's still the same level. They try to change it up by sending down Jack's dead wife. It's a wrong move. It makes Lena look bad. It's badly complicated. The rest is a retread of the first movie. This is disappointing.
