The Fly 2

The Fly 2 (1989)

Revealing mistake: When Beth is helping Martin out of Bartok's cocoon, you can see Martin wearing pants inside the cocoon. Surely he should be naked.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Martin Brundle has transformed into the fly he kills one of the guards by breaking his neck. After this he throws the body towards a door where another guard is standing - the body is a plastic dummy as it flies across the room with no effort at all and when the other guard behind the door checks the body you can see a plastic yellow face which is supposed to be the guard that was killed.

Visible crew/equipment: Martin Brundle (in fly form) manages to kill a guard by spewing acid vomit all over him. Right after this happens he roars and you can see what looks like a colander (probably used to increase the spread of the vomit) in his mouth.

Trivia: In one version of the script, Martin finds another videotape of his father Seth. This tape would show Seth (who is in his part-fly form) explaining the "cure". This scene would have required Jeff Goldblum to be in make-up for five hours, and he didn't want to go through that, so he dropped out, and the scene was cut from the script.

Trivia: Geena Davis was originally going to reprise her role of Veronica Quaife. But, after learning that Veronica would die during child birth, she pulled out.

Question: After the gene-swapping sequence, why was Bartok placed in observation? Also, what was that food they gave him?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Obviously, he was kept alive so he could be studied, which was a nasty twist on the fact that he kept the dog alive, and suffering, for so long. As far as the food, there is no way to know what it was. Probably some kind of bland mush.

Question: Why did the scientists at Bartok Industries keep that poor dog alive in observation? what were they hoping to gain?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: They were studying the mutation. It was cruel to keep the animal alive, but they didn't care about that.

Question: What became of Martin and Beth after the the gene-swapping sequence? also, were Bartoks' employees aware of Bartoks' transformation?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Presumably they go on to live relatively normal lives. The scene at the end of Bartok is meant to show that his employees have no sympathy for any creature, including him, who is suffering. At least some of them are aware it's Bartok, yet they allow him to be imprisoned and gawked at, just as they did the dog.
