Hotel Transylvania 2 Reviews

December 5, 2016
A lazy and derivative sequel to the modestly successful 2012 children's animation.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 5, 2016
All of these exertions are just enough to graze the 90 minute mark, after which the film gratefully whumps to a close taking its paint-by-numbers character arcs and hopelessly generic jokes with it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

There are few things as sad as an unkept promise, Hotel Transylania 2 does that for movies. [Full review in Spanish]

With a joke well that runs dry nearly an hour too early, watches will be checked and previously unwanted popcorn kernels will be rigorously examined.

April 6, 2016
A rip-roaring monster ball finale, complete with a whopping great punch-up featuring Dracula, Frankenstein, werewolves and bats, more than makes up for the flaws.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 5, 2016
Light on intelligent humour, heavy on the slapstick, the result is once again a mixed bag; an animated effort which will please the young viewers, but not anyone older than maybe 10.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Still, the material is a lot stronger than anything in the premise-squandering Pixels or lackluster Paul Blart sequel.

February 21, 2016
Adam Sandler's Dracula sinks his teeth into another batch of slapstick fun... so much more enjoyable than any of [his] recent live-action movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Hotel Transylvania 2 succeeds in creating the sort of wacky visual comedy that kids love -- from slime monsters to screaming slices of wedding cake.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 19, 2016
Has its charms, but it disappoints with a script that feels sloppy and hastily slapped together.

"Hotel Transylvania 2" isn't a horror movie, but like its predecessor, it's made for those who love these characters so much that we like to see them in children's movies
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

If you liked the first Hotel Transylvania you'll like the second, but while the special 3D effects look great, the storyline can lack depth at times.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

What Sandler does pull off here is an uncommon feat: a sequel that's an improvement over the original, which itself was a solid movie. Your kids will love "Hotel Transylvania 2" and you'll like it, too.

There's a charm to these characters and it's easy to see why kids are attracted to the story.

While HT 2 is all about feelgood emotions, there are some interesting edges to it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 15, 2015
This has no aspirations to be anything more than a throwaway 89 minutes of slapstick silliness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 15, 2015
Littered with clichés and rehashed gags, the sequel's strength rests on the impressive art and animation. The simplistic gags might just work with young audiences.
December 4, 2015
A clever and funny animated romp that kids and adults will enjoy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 1, 2015
Kids are not likely to get the jokes about Gary Oldman​'s wig in the 1992 film Dracula, nor sympathise closely with the emotional difficulties Drac faces in becoming a grandparent. Adults... will have seen virtually all of this before.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 1, 2015
This enjoyable sequel lands a slight notch below the original, only because of a few scenes lazily squeezing more juice out of its predecessor's best gags.
