(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

acting 8

directing 7

effects 9

editing 7

writing 6


3.7 out of 5 🐙


It’s still a lot of fun. But it’s a deep drop in quality from the original. The brilliant new fight choreography isn’t new anymore but it’s still fun. It’s fun to see Jim Carrey play a different kind of weirdo. Mother Russia was an amazing character. Chloe was still the heart of the movie. And it wasn’t the tight film the first was. But it was still a really fun mess. I’m using the word fun a lot. Because that’s what the movie is. Have fun.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
