Always been a big fan of the MartinFly creature as well which I always felt was an underrated monster and still a terrific creature design.
Not to be a contrarian... I saw The Fly 2 twice, shortly after it came out, and then some 10 years ago. I really didn't like it either time. There's just something wrong about it... I want to say it's incoherent... but it's not that I don't understand it, just that something is off as a film. Peaking at over 21,000 audience 23%, 15 critics 27%. Pretty universally disliked. *shrug*
