One review

  • The problem with sequels is that, when it included bigger stars or bigger characters like the President of the US and it couldn’t provide justice to their characters. Sometimes, fiction becomes too fiction and people like me who thinks would think, ‘oh its too fiction,’ I know what I mean.

    The magic is lost, it becomes a moneymaking machine and the hearts know not to be fooled. Its good to include bigger stars sometimes… but sometimes, bigger stars make things impossible, the scene becomes too known or familiar its almost predictable, and predictable things insult the mind and bores the heart.

    I am not saying the bigger stars here were not good, they were still great but the outcome is that… it becomes centered on them (moneymaking) and not on the essential aspects.

    Unbelievable things are cool if they stir curiosity but a little bit too far, stir familiarity, familiarity is predictability, and predictability is insulting and boring.

    I would rate the stars ten out of ten even if some are not really that good but because they are who they are, the story three, script five, special effects six. In total, six point five.

    I forgot, this is a kiddie movie.
