This sequel to the rock & roll mystery Eddie and the Cruisers explains many of the questions concerning the mysterious death of 1960s rocker Eddie Wilson, who with his Cruisers was celebrating the success of their first album when he got in a terrible car wreck, from which his body was never recovered. Also missing were the masters from the group's upcoming second album. This story begins 25-years later as Eddie Wilson is found living in Montreal under an assumed name. At this time, the masters from the second album are finally released and suddenly the whole continent is caught up in a resurgence of "Eddiemania." This inspires Wilson, who continues to use an alias, to form a new band and hit the road. Once again, his music is provided by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
If you liked the first movie (this is the sequel), you'll like this one too. It avoids some of the dangers of sequels by having an almost totally different cast; Michael Pare is the only returning cast member aside from a couple of cameos. The music is pretty good too (by John Cafferty again, I'm pretty sure). Not quite A movie or on the lower side of it a high B movie. Like I said, it's alright.
