"The Smurfs 2" Movie Review

"The Smurfs 2" Movie Review

Smurfette is originally created by Gargamel in order to distract and trap the smurfs. But thanks to Papa Smurf, Smurfette was able to become a real smurf. 
In this 2nd movie, the evil wizard Gargamel has created a few other mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties to kidnap Smurfette in order to know the secret of turning Naughties into real smurfs.

Will the Naughties be able to capture Smurfette?

Will Smurfette tell Gargamel about the secret since he’s her creator?

What will the other smurfs do to save Smurfette?

Let’s check out the movie in your smurfest cinema around!

“The smurfs 2” is targeted at the hearts of children and has the similar concept and plot like the one in the first movie. So, before you continue to read the review, I would like to inform you that, those people who have never liked the first movie, then this movie will most probably be a nuisance for you too.

The storyline in this movie is simple, straight forward and predictable. (Kidnap-and-rescue type of plot) But it is fun enough to put on some laughter for the light-hearted audience especially the kids. Besides, it has included the theme of “family unconditional love” in it which is very meaningful especially for family with children.

Apart from that, the story has almost the same pacing and progression of plot like the predecessor. First, they start off with a little introduction of some of the smurfs. Then, they turned the spot light into the few selected and more notable smurfs such as Clumsy, Vanity, Grouchy and of course Papa Smurf. If you love the smurfs, it will definitely be a sweet treat for you as you would be able to get a glimpse of the cute blue creatures again.

The background music is cheerful and well-suited with the cartoonish nature of the film too. Plus, there is a nice credit song sang by Britney Spears called, “Ooh La La”. Overall, I do enjoy the musical score in this film.

The narration of the smurf is great. The acting by the actors and actresses for human character are acceptable, but nothing spectacular. However, the dialogue in the film can be quite cheesy at certain times and some audience might find it a bit annoying.

CGI effect is almost the same like the first movie. Sometimes it might be a bit unrealistic when the Smurfs are moving around in the human world. But it is understandable because this is a cartoon adaptation after all.
Overall, it is definitely an enjoyable movie for people who love the smurfs. But I think it is a turnoff for those who never like these blue creatures before.

What I like about the movie:
  1. Similar fun like the first movie
  2. Meaningful theme
  3. Catchy background music and score
  4. Good narration
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Predictable plot
  2. Cheesy dialogues

This movie deserves 6.0/10.0!

A light-hearted fun for audience who loves the smurfs and a simple joy for the kids!

Those who never like smurfs before, stay away from this movie!
