The Smurfs 2 Movie Synopsis

In The Smurfs 2, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer.
It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus? Will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?

Smurfs 2 Movie Review:

I guess everyone should know that the Smurfs 2 is a animation movie suitable for kids and of course, adults who had grown up with the Smurfs. One good thing about the sequel is perhaps, lesser Smurf song (aka La La Song)-singing.

Gargamel is now a celebrity in the real world, worshipped by people for his magic which requires the blue essences to exist. It is ironic how people are crazy over him despite being insulted. He is serious, in insulting them, and they are really happy being insulted, thinking they are all a joke, which I wonder if this is a reflection of any current issues.

Besides the cute blue creatures and their amusing lines, I guess the only plot worth mentioning will be the father-son relationship between Patrick and his stepfather, Victor Doyle. It was interesting that they added the additional plot to make the whole movie a tad more meaningful. From children’s perspectives, the step parents are usually the one who broke up their family and steal away their parent’s love. But here, it gave another angle, of how it was all along to protect the child’s heart and to cushion the hurt. And when Patrick, the supposedly-parent in the movie is the “child” made it even more meaningful. This little insert actually made me wonder if I have ever wronged or blame someone who was actually trying to protect me.

In conclusion, Smurfs 2 is endearing characters, but it is not exactly Smurftastic (for an adult).

    The movie is not very scary at all. I heard a lot more laughs than screams in the theater! (Meaning that I didn’t hear any screams.) Although, with under five-year olds, you may want to watch it in 2-D because there are some parts that could be scary for little kids, which would seem scarier in 3-D. If you have older kids who are reluctant to go, you may want to consider seeing it in 3-D, which is scarier for younger kids, but more exciting for the older ones. I would say that really anyone might enjoy this movie: Younger kids just love it, older kids like the idea, though they may not admit it, and adults find that they enjoy the lightness of the story and some jokes put in that only the adults would understand.

Tell me what you think!
