Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Only in the highly orchestrated, surprisingly gory climax, wherein Chucky's plastic form takes on the sins of the flesh, is there a spark of originality."

"Too much effort went towards giving Chucky life in this film, while other things like the writing, acting, and direction were left for dead."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight

‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"The mystique might have faded, but the psychopathic Chucky is still an apt threat."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"A Hip, equally satisfying sequel...Chucky's badder than ever!"

"In embracing its identity as a tacky horror movie, and totally scrapping the murder mystery angle that made the original so wobbly, it manages to be a darn sight more fun to watch."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"...a surprisingly effective sequel that's sure to please fans of this ongoing series."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Entirely standard sequel fare. Fans of the first one will be entertained on an infrequent basis."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
