Larry the Cable Guy,
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
When Dr. Claw uses his weapon, time freezes all over the city of Riverton, showing several actions stopping in mid-motion and remaining in position. This means that the electronic devices in the building of the federal reserve - the gate, retina scan and the vault door - should be inoperable and impossible to function. See more »
I had high expectations when I heard about IG2, but I was not disappointed.
Okay, maybe some things weren't from the original cartoon (the Gadgetmobile talks again, and Chief Quimby doesn't have a moustache), but the film did stay true to the original cartoon series (which is now on DVD in Australia), from the hiding of Claw to the classic slapstick humour. And of course, it was filmed in Australia! French Stewart (3rd Rock from the Sun) really brought Gadget to life, and Caitlin Wachs (Commander in Chief) was great as Penny. She was my favourite performance in the film. I thank Alex Zamm for creating a film that actually stays true to the cartoon, and a film that will keep me entertained when I watch it.
