Paddington 2

Here we have a character that is so cute, it really doesn’t matter if the story is good, you just want to see him talk and move. But the story here is awesome. We go on a lively and comical adventure with a bear named Paddington.

Paddington 2 (2017)
PG | 1h 44min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | 12 January 2018 (USA)

Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
Director: Paul King
Writers: Paul King, Simon Farnaby | 1 more credit ยป
Stars: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville

Here we have another writer and director that amazes. Paul King has a limited number of titles as a director but he really shines with Paddington 2.

We see a lot of the same cast as the first film. There is a slight twist in that Hugh Grant’s character is conniving, seeking to steal a sacred pop-up book. There are laughs in this there are also some truly sad spots. Paddington interprets these emotions well. I think this film brings his personality to life much more than the first film does, and I liked the first film! As a fun family film that certainly entertains, I give this film an 8/10
