On the outskirts of Riverton, "The Safest City in America", a pensive Inspector Gadget sits in his Gadgetmobile, along with his canine companion, Brain. Gadget is back on the job, on stakeout, but he is concerned that everything is too quiet in Riverton. He has a very simple, rational answer to this; " it's always the most quiet just before criminals strike". Evil must be afoot. In a moment of overzealous crime fighting Gadget arrests an elderly women for wreckless driving, but not without incident. In his effort to make the arrest Gadget's many crime fighting "accessories" go wildly astray. It's time to report back to headquarters for a checkup. Baxter, the "Q" of the Police Department, delivers the prognosis - as he is a prototype things are bound to have some glitches. The remedy is close at hand. But, before Baxter can tell of his new "top secret", Gadget is confronted by a furious Chief Quimby. The little old lady arrested earlier for wreckless driving turns out to be Quimby's ... Written by
WOW, and I thought the original cartoon was good! Folks, if you haven't checked this movie out, it's about time you do. In this laugh-out-loud follow-up to the 1999 movie starring Matthew Broderick (Deck the Halls, Family Business), you get to witness the true example of an outstanding sequel.
French Stewart (The New WKRP in Cincinnati, Home Alone 4) stars as Inspector Gadget, and I must say that he pulled off the role much better than Broderick. His performance was downright wacky and entertaining - he captured the essence of the true Inspector Gadget character so well.
It's sad that you don't see much of French Stewart in the movies these days. His on-screen presence could surely liven up some of the more lackluster movies Hollywood has been churning out lately, such as Avatar. Still, I'll take what I can get, and I'm just crossing my fingers that Inspector Gadget 3 comes to fruition and he gets the starring role once more! If you're as serious about film as I am, do yourself a favor and rent Inspector Gadget 2 - you will not be disappointed. Go-go-gadget-VIDEO STORE!
