Poorly thought-out, Anti-comedic film
3 June 2003 | by (Valparaiso, Indiana) – See all my reviews



Well, looks as if the gang is off into a new-adventure into a highly uptight high-school on an athletic scholarship. That was about my biggest turn-off right now. The fact that it was a bunch of preps just dealing it out on the ice, giving out some hard-knock schooling on the ice.

The fact is, most of the original characters apparently no longer exist, and that is probably a major downfall. The plot wasn't the greatest plot of all-although it does show actual realistic details, such as the treatment of new freshman on the campus. The pranks that these the varsity and junior varsity teams pull are completely ridiculous, and most likely, wouldn't be found in such a highly scholar school.

The coach was a complete loser, and that is completely impossible that one man can change or mature within a small time of frame.

Another turning point is that there is no-mention of Han's companion (who went back to the Old Country in D2) but, Han's dies. This is a very upsetting time, and does take the comedy effect off of the Mighty Ducks series which appeared to be the main reason for the creation of the series to begin with.

As Theodore Taylor once told Gary Paulson, Never create a prequel or following up to an excellent work, they usually end up with a foul feeling in the audience, and it can really ruin ones career. This same advice goes for the director (Robert Lieberman).
