Trivia

When the real-life Buford Pusser, who originally agreed to portray himself in this film, was tragically killed in a car crash before production began, Baker subsequently refused to reprise the Pusser role. Baker had become good friends with Pusser and his daughter during filming of the original Walking Tall, and out of respect for his family decided to not play Buford again in the sequels. See more »

Goofs

The damage shown to the engine compartment of Stud Pardee's Camaro is inconsistent compared to the places Buford hits with his stick. For example, Buford is never shown hitting the master cylinder, yet it is shown to be sheared away from the vacuum pump. See more »

Quotes

Grady Coker: Which one of them was he?
Buford Pusser: Fat man... From Nashville.
Grady Coker: Yeah... I remember him.
Buford Pusser: Yeah... I'd almost forgotten about him.

If anything ever happens to me. I want you to be sure to finish telling my story
18 January 2014 | by bluesman-20See all my reviews

Walking Tall Part II is a worthy follow up to the original Walking Tall. Bo Svenson carries the big stick and he does so with a lot of authority. Of course since this is Hollywood they can't get the facts right so they hollywoodize it. the story is Buford is on the rampage looking for the People behind Pauline's death. Those people are starting to get scared. And they send an assassin out to finish the job. In the End Buford gets his information foils the assassin and finds the spy in his office. Not a bad movie as far as movies go. But this one was mostly a fictionalized account of Buford Pusser's life. Having read everything on Buford Pusser that I could get my hands on. I find the films are a great way to tell Buford's Legend. Worthwhile film. And A good solid story that'll keep you in your seat.
