|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Cocoon II|
|The aliens and senior citizens from the first film return to rescue more cocoons from the ocean. But it's too late -- one of them has been retrieved by biologists and turned over to the military for research. The group hatches a plot to rescue their friends, while the seniors visit family, and attempt to cope with the fact that they have remained strong, while those who remain behind on earth continue to age.
