Love the animation and computer effects. These movies have always been a favorite of mine, and this one is as good as the first, if not better. Love the cast and all the characters, and all the miniature people. Kind of wish the story was always different than "save the museum and the world", but I guess a museum and museum guard can't have too many different types of conflict. Maybe I'm a sucker for big budget movies, but I loved this, even if it wasn't perfect. Fun movie - that's how I sum it up. Jonah Hill was a nice addition to the cast, also.
Really! Only one better than the original! This movie was way better than the original, which was already a pretty good movie. The characters, mostly the villain, were funnier then before! You could tell that the actors were having a good time. The CGI is much better in this movie, and some stuff is very visually appealing. Overall, I felt like it was a good movie, again with some flaws but good overall.
Now this is better it gets right down to the action it's a fun filled movie my favorite part is when Larry runs in to General Custer. General Custer was played by Bill hater and he was a funny one! It's a new SQL with new characters such as General Custer and more new characters I like this movie a lot!
To be honest, this sequel wasn't really as good as I expected it to be. The first film was way better. Although this may pass for little kids, they really need to work on the visual effects. The screenplay was great, the plot could've been improved & the directing was ok. But other than that, this was actually a pretty decent, enjoyable family movie!
Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian is, in my opinion.a slight improvement over its predecessor as the film has a more adventurous tone than its predecessor, which was entertaining enough for what it is yet still a bit tame and lonely. The special effects are enjoyable, Hank Azaria is actually a pretty enjoyable villain that even the kiddies will like, particularly since he is a bit funny at times, and this film is ultimately a joy-filled ride that children will enjoy and adults might think "Not bad". True, it feels like a cash-grab at times and I was a bit saddened by the lack of Robin Williams in this movie but all in all, I found this to be one of Hollywood's more entertaining sequels to something that wasn't really critically lauded upon release nor was it universally panned.
the first movie is better then this one but the comedy is sort of funny sometimes but the whole idea of EPIC WAR!!! in note a museum is just dumb and they take advantage a little bit too much that its a sequel so they add the fact that the egyptian dude has a evil brother and that the monkey has a bro too!? its all very inaccurate when its trying to talk about history and also there sometimes where there is a random cameo like grouch from sesame street or albert einstein or dart vader that really feels out of place
