DVD Review: Basic Instinct 2

Basic Instinct 2: The instinct was wrong.
Sony Home Video

In 1994, Sharon Stone became a star when she appeared, opposite Michael Douglas, in Basic Instinct. Ask most people what the film was about and they will likely be a little vague…something about a killer, Douglas is a cop… Stone uncrossed her legs and is not wearing underwear. That last part has become legendary.

Fast-forward 12 years, Basic Instinct 2 is here. Michael Douglas is nowhere to be seen and, quite frankly, neither is any of the elements that made the original an entertaining thriller. I could take another 100-200 words to go off on this film and Hollywood’s tendency to either remake or do a sequel for every successful film that has ever existed. Instead, I will simply say you would be better off saving your money for a more worthy dvd.

And, worst of all, Sharon Stone doesn't really do a lot of nudity in the film.
