Now the first space chimps movie had just enough story in it to hold a child's attention, however, for the second movie they have dispatched with minor things such as story, style and quite clearly budget. Instead what they pinned all their hopes on is the 3D appeal, and a large helping of product placement (the main weapon that appears frequently in the film is an exact replica of a Wii controller for example). This reliance on 3D is so apparent that at times the film jumps into sequences designed to show off the 3D with all the skill of Freidberg and Seltzer, and its during these times especially that you feel that the plot has been put down and the writers have forgotten where they left it. Now some of the faults in story could have been forgiven if the film looked good but the overall look of the film is truly, epically awful. This film was obviously made for a much smaller budget and my god does it show, the animation is horrendous, Toy Story was made 15 years ago, computers and CGI have come a long way in that time, yet Space Chimps 2 doesn't come close to the detail and visual quality in Toy Story, in fact I can safely say that it is visually the worst animated film I have seen. In the same way that a film like "Up" has sequences of draw dropping beauty so this film has sections so bad that you'll find yourself staring at the screen with your mouth open in disbelief. My favourites have to be the backgrounds (or complete lack of them), and the rendered grass, which is so bad I can honestly say i've seen better in playstation 1 games. Now i appreciate that this is a child's film yet when viewing this I had a 7 year old and a 4 year old with me, neither of which bothered watching beyond 30 minutes such was the lack of quality. When a child walks out of a 3D movie about Monkeys in Space and states that they did not like it because it was not funny then you know something is wrong.
