Nowhere near as good as the first mainly because 1. no robin williams 2. NO TONE LOC
An unnecessary, & completely shitty sequel to the first beautiful one.
Some of you will say that I hate this movie because it's a sequel to the first one, no, the truth is that I hate this movie because there is no redeeming features about this sequel, like, at all.
Most of us fans hate this sequel for very good reasons, & I cannot picture anyone of any age liking this movie. Take my advice, watch the original one, even if you don't like it, it's far superior to this crap.
There are so many, many things that this film does wrong, & I will point out only the top ones right now:
Cast: Not one person from the original movie came back in this sequel, like, at all. Each actor in here is forgettable & a complete no name. None of the characters sound like themselves, & hell it is painfully missing Robin Williams who played Batty!
Characters: The main character from the first one was Crysta, in this one its Pips, Crysta's BF(?) & the gang of what the hells riding on the beetles from the first one. And just to let you know that in this movie, despite the main focus of the beetle gang, they still don't explain what the hell they are. And NONE of the other characters mentioned in the previous movie ever return here, nor are they even given a small hint of mentioning. No, I'm serious, not a single mentioning of Zak or any other human character, or even the villain from the other one film are ever brought up in this movie. And don't get me started on how the main characters of this movie just become douches.
But apparently there WAS a character from the other movie that came back, & that was one of the guys handling the machine, the one with the red hat. But apparently, in this movie, that was not him, it was another character with an accent. So, they used the character from the first one only to not use him as the same character? How does that work?
Story: The story has NOTHING to do with the original. The story uses one plot, then another & another, to the point where you're asking yourself what the hell is the point of this movie? Not to mention that it is also completely illogical at a certain point, & then it becomes completely pointless. There is a scene where the human girl character Budgy(?)is about to fall off a cliff, then Batty, a small ass fruit bat, grabs her & lifts her up to safety. Yeah, because a bat that small can pick up a human girl with no problem. And towards then end, remember how in the original every fairy in the movie helps by sealing the villain into a giant tree? Well, in this one, they grab all of the villains in a tree, that's it, just grab them with a bunch of branches.
Animation: Let me tell you that the animation in this movie is not only stale, but also half-assessed. The coloring is also cheap. And the worst thing is that in this movie, the fairies don't even have their wings drawn on them about 95% pf the time, which only makes you ask that why do they need the wings if they're not even using them?
Songs: Each song in here is poorly written, bland, & utterly laughable. They have nothing to do with the story & give no emotion to the film as a whole, & they just become annoying as a whole. Plus, none of the actors in here can sing.
So all in all, this is by far one of the worst sequels to an animated film ever made, as well as the most unnecessary. You're better off watching some the crappy-ass Disney straight to DVD sequels than this. There is nothing magical about this movie, nor even the journey.
If you read my reviews, you know I'm not too keen on straight-to-DVD sequels. Even the title is awful! At least the first one had Robin Williams in it.
