Film Review - The Smurfs 2

We're a big fan of family movies, ones in which we can all sit and enjoy as a family, and we love going to the cinema, although it's a pricey afternoon out nowadays. HOW expensive is the cinema nowadays?? But it was Wednesday, so a cheeky Orange Wednesday code, plus enough Odeon Premiere Club points for a free ticket and we were off to the cinema to see The Smurfs 2 in 3D, for £11 for the 3 of us. Bargain! say..
'The Smurfs team up with their human friends to rescue Smurfette, who has been kidnapped by Gargamel since he knows a secret spell that can turn the evil sorcerer's newest creation - creatures called the Naughties - into real Smurfs.'

If you're looking for something to keep the children entertained during the holidays, take them to see this. It's a crowd pleaser for all ages. We were all giggling in some parts. It had humour, emotion and a silly little storyline behind it. It wasn't the most amazing film I've ever seen, but as far as family animations go, it was a perfectly pleasant and enjoyable movie. You begin to get to know the little characters behind the Smurfs, and it's hard not to get sucked into the whole drama of 'will they or wont they get to Smurfette (Katy Perry) in time?!' Although aimed at the younger generation, there was still a good ol' grown up storyline woven in too. I really enjoyed it. For a sequel, it was pretty damn good. 

My 9 year old, Bradley commented, 'It was really good, The Smurfs are funny!'
My partner James commented, 'I thought it was better than the first one..' 

Would I recommend it?
If you have children, most definitely. I've read quite mixed reviews, but we all loved it! 

The Smurfs 2 is available to watch in 2D & 3D at your local cinema now.
If you have young uns, check out the Official Sony site with them, for some fun Smurf games and videos..

Have you been to see it yet? Would love to know what YOU thought.
