The Neverending Story II: The Next Chapter Reviews
The acting is so bad I recommend watching a dubbed version of any foreign language you can get your hands on (turn on the subtitles if needed). I've seen it in french and german and it was by far more enjoyable than the english version only because you didn't have to listen to the forced delivery of the actors lines.
The movie itself is not entirely terrible and I remember enjoying it as a kid however it is not suitable for younger children as it contains some serious nightmare fuel, mild brainwashing scenes and (temporary) character death.
In the first movie the Childlike Empress, Fantasia's leader, gave him a piece of sand and said he can have any wish he wants, as many times as he wanted. As a child, I thought he needed this glowing piece of sand with him at all times in order to make a wish. It turns out he did not need it. In the second movie, a creature by the name of Nimbly tells Bastian to use his medallion to make wishes. Bastian went from not having to have anything to make a wish to having to have the medallion with him in order to make a wish. There is no consistency between movie one and two. Throughout the movie two there are all sorts of new facts that made no sense and did not even add up with movie one.
1) (con) this movie is NOT for kids I see that a lot of parts in This movie are for teens like me or just 10 or older my friend says she watch this when she was little like 4 or younger and NEVER ENDING NIGHTMARES came to her and she never watch it again
2) (con) this movie has NO heart at all it boring I had to skip some parts because it was boring it never had its changes to make a move to the heart it had in Never ending story had
3) (con) where's the love at the ending of the movie where I almost cried and it was 2 mins you need more love and make people cry because it makes people love it
4) (con) ok the theme song for never ending story from the first one 1 from the intro was NEVER ENDING THERE in the second one ok that freak me out I almost had to turn the TV off because I Want the song In all of the movies
Ok your thinking I am going to rate the third movie
NOPE ok why Because.. Ok I have not seen the movie yet and I probably can't because it not on TV or on DVD ok the final rating for the two movies because it a Franchise is a 3/5 stars if the second one haven't been so bad it would not have such a bad rating
5/5 for the first one 1/5 stars for the second
See you next time
