Courtesy to Nuffnang, I get to watch The Smurfs 2 Premier Screening before it release in Malaysia.
In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world¹s greatest sorcerer. It's up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
Nothing much to shout in the movie. It is whacky, lively and comical and of course, children will like it. Personally I am glad they did not sing their happy song as much as the first sequel.
Storyline pretty much predictable since it is straight forward and I gave myself a little facepalm when Windslow family did not hesitate at all to Paris to save Smurfette from Gargamel. I mean hello? Shouldn't you been consider a bit before make decision? Abit sick of Vanity Smurf vain attitude too in the movie. It is overkilled.
Of course in the end, a great family moral value was taught.
Nevertheless, I just tried to enjoy as much as I can on this movie. This movie will be on cinema this Thursday, yes SELAMAT HARI RAYA! Catch up with your children :)
The Smurfs 2 also dedicated to Jonathan Winters, who died on April 11, 2013. He is voice actor for Papa Smurf.
