This blockbuster displays action, adventures ,fantasy and an enjoyable father-son relationship . This fantastic film starts splendidly and goes on in a real sense of wonder and magic , winds up an overlong bombastic wild ride made by means of magnificent special effects and with an exciting final pursuit . Spectacular images and computer generator set pieces action with several known personages and animals can not erase the charm of characters and ideas especially in the hands of peerless casting . Glamorous and luxurious cinematography by John Schwarzman and moving musical score by the composer of the previous film , Alan Silvestri, Robert Zemeckis's usual musician. The picture is marvelously realized with phenomenal production values and well directed by Shawn Levy . Shawn is an expert on familiar genre as he proved in ¨ Cheaper by the dozen¨,¨Pink Panther¨,¨Just married¨ and of course ¨Night at the Museum I¨.
