Can't quite match the first, but still very good
on April 7, 2011
A lot of fun, with good new characters voiced by John Cleese and Antonio Banderas. It just doesn't have quite the magic of the first film. But of course that's to be expected - part of what made the first so amazing was the wonderful world they created. Now that the world is familiar, it's hard to keep that same 'lightning in a bottle' enchantment.
Still, way better than most sequels, and worth seeing if you enjoyed the original.
Try to get the widescreen version -- with animation this nice and detailed it's a shame to lose big chunks of the image.
