SOMETHING BIG WAS LEFTOVER.
Recruited by the world’s most successful inventor, Flint Lockwood and his friends return to their island where a habitat of living food animals has formed. A contrived sequel if there ever was one, but considering how crazy the first movie was – why not? The filmmakers are having a lot of fun with the food animals and the journey to the island has amusing echoes of Jurassic Park (1993) with more food jokes than there are grains of sugar on a doughnut. The motley gang of friends that Flint gathers for the expedition is also fun, the film is well-paced and the island is colorfully designed in 3D.
