Movie Review: Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatball 2 (2013)

1 comment :

Title: Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2
Language: English
Genre: Animation
Running Time: 95 Minutes

Picking up straight from the first movie, Flint and the whole town was ask to evacuate their Island by Live Corp, a multi million company for the excuse of helping with the humanitarian clean up that the food had brought but we all know that's never true. Flint now goes back to his village to discover that the foods have all been produced to be foodimal by his own inventions so should he find the machine and stop it now?

What do I think about it:-
This sequel is perhaps much more entertaining than the first one and possess some rather interesting creative direction for it's genre. Although not particularly strong in the aspect of detailed animation, the film was still vibrantly put together with probably some of the most creative combination of foodimal known to man. 

The story is straight forward but was still enjoyable with continuously quick witted conversations and surprises along the way. One could only imagine the fun that the creative directors was having with creating so many interesting visual for the foodimal featured. 

The gem of this film would have to be the absurd amount of puns featured that was almost always timed perfectly with the situations. The voice actors were brilliant with the awesome Terry Crews joining the cast. The foodimals are interesting to watch too with Cheezspiders and Shrimpanzees. Oh and let's not forget MosquiTOAST sucking the blood of a butTOAD

The story is linear but packs enough laugh ( if puns are your thing) and cuteness to keep you watching till the end. 

The kids will be enjoying the colorful world while the rest laugh at the puns that seemed endless.

But people who can't really catch puns might have a harder time enjoying this though.

Rating: 3/5 (0.5 given for the magic of puns)

"An enjoyable sequel to the more mundane first film blended with good fun and keeping it simple and to just enjoy the ride"

Favorite Scene/line : "It's so beautiful, it's enough to make a grown man cry. *tears coming out* BUT NOT THIS MAN, GET BACK IN THERE TEAR. *tear crawls back into eye* (gotta love Terry) 

An obvious parody of .... Steve Jobs as the antagonist with various lines and catch phrases commonly used in Apple commercials. haha
