I finally managed to watch Paddington 2 at the cinema and I’m very glad I did. It’s really good clean fun and a great film for all the family (which doesn’t happen that often anymore).
This time round we have Paddington involved in a robbery, window cleaning, train & dog chases and prison! A typical film for a young bear (as Mr Gruber might say). As per P1, you know you are going to get a daft plot, ridiculous situations and as many British comedians as you can fit into a couple of hours. However, this doesn’t matter as its the journey that counts.
As well done as the bear effects are the stand out performance for me was Hugh Grant. He was superb as an aging “Actor” and his bit during the end credits was great.
Verdict: Just as fun as the first one but with a tad more action. A great kids film that manages to stay clean but remain fun. Roll on P3.
