Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Review
“Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Although Very Pleasing To The Eyes Fails To Deliver Much Else.”
October 27th, 2013
I'm start off this review by being honest. I walked into this film pretty close-minded, a series of events led me to see this film. I honestly had no interest in seeing this film, even though I enjoyed the first film greatly. But when the movie started, I decided to act less cynical and just try to enjoy the film. Unfortunately, I could not.
I'll start off with the positives. First off, the animation is spectacular! Very colorful and nice to look at. Filled with a lot of nice vibrant colors. Also, the 3D wasn't that bad either. And lastly, the voice acting is pretty good. All the actors in the film do a great job with the material they're given.
I understand this is a kids film. But this film fails to entertain kids and adults at the same time. I didn't laugh once in this film. Admittedly, I smiled a handful of times and let out an occasional "Aww". But for the majority of the film I was pretty bored and uninterested. Which leds me into the story, this film is incredibly predictable (which granted most kids films are). But in this film it's just so blatant. The antagonist of the film reminded me of the same on in "Up". In fact, it's almost the same film.
Overall, I didn't like this film. And I honestly can't see anyone under the age of 10 liking this movie. Hopefully you enjoyed this review, it'd mean a lot. Thanks!
