 The Croods 2 Full Review | The Croods: A New Age-Review


"If you loved its previous part you'll enjoy this also"

Today we're going to be talking about the first big handmade film in theaters since March's The Croods: A New Age.

The Croods: New Age is a computer animated adventure comedy film produced by Dreamworks Animation and distributed by universal pictures it is a sequel to the 2013 film the croods the film.  

Directed by Joel Crawford in his featured  directorial debut with the screenplay by Dan Highman, Kevin Hageman, Paul Fisher and Bob Logan It features the returning voices of Nicholas Cage,Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Clarice Leachman with new cast members,Peter Dinklage, Leslie Mann and Kelly Marie Tran.

I found this to be a very entertaining sequel,I was surprised of how good it was considering the  first one came out seven years ago and had a much bigger budget with 135 million dollars this film  has a budget 70 million dollars less than that at only 65 million but shockingly i found the  animation better in this sequel highlight  
for me is the comedy the dialogue is much funnier  than in the first one where jokes were repetitive and became stale as the movie went on this film  brought over some of the writers of the Lego movie  
to step in and the improvement shows comedy was more utilised than in the previous film with crazy sporadic sequences that were clever and creative  that felt extremely engaging throughout the movie. Nicholas cage, Emma stone and Ryan Reynolds continued to  be standouts i thought they were able to display their voice talent which much more range and  creativity especially for someone like Nicholas cage that can't be trapped into a box for any  kind of performance.

List of Positives:

Enjoyed the animation of this film a lot more than in the first there was a  ton of creative and stylistic action sequences that looked incredible with beautiful colors it  was also very imaginative of how they use the animation to make it a crazy entertaining and fun  experience which makes sense because the director Joel Crawford used to work in the art department  for many great animated films so he knows exactly,what makes a fun and exciting animated film.

I enjoy how crazy this film got especially in the third act that left me laughing and excited  throughout i was incredibly pleased seeing they didn't baby this movie down and made it so anyone can enjoy it.

List of negatives:

Being that it follows a simple formulaic story  we have all seen before and added nothing new or even interesting to the concept followed it  beat for beat it was entirely uninteresting.

I knew exactly where this film was always going  which was very disappointing especially when you know it all by the time the film is all set up  writing is much better than the first film but still has many issues while this film is hilarious  the dialogue is too on the nose every time which is extremely annoying and feels the need to spell  out everything to the audience when i think we already could sense what was happening.

film feels incredibly long even though it is only a 95 minute  
movie which is considered short but the reason for this is because there are so many dragged out boring dialogue scenes between the characters  where you already know what they will start talking about and how it will go just by the setup  of the scene since the film never differs from the routine you know when everything is coming and  this made the film a little uninteresting at times film still has his repetitive gags that all  the characters have which gets annoying after a while.

This is mostly noticeable with thunk he is the exact same character as in the last movie just being a pure comedic relief character that feels stale halfway through the film it is an issue that  
both these films have that was very disappointing.


To say the least overall I had an incredibly fun time at the theater checking this film out it felt like there was a new stylistic direction that had me laughing in many scenes was entertaining  and have good characters unfortunately it never differentiates from the formula we are all used  to seeing so that becomes a simple average film.  

let me know are you interested in seeing this new croods film did you enjoy the first i want to know all those things down below in the comment section as always i will see you all in the next post.
