Storyline

Sammy and Ray, leatherback turtles and friends forever, are enjoying an atoll's water and sand, shepherding new hatchlings Ricky and Ella out to sea. Suddenly, a poacher swoops in and ships them off to be part of a spectacular aquarium show for tourists in Dubai. The kingpin of the place, Big D the seahorse, enlists them in his plans for a great escape. But with their new friends Jimbo the bug-eyed blob fish and Lulu the snippy lobster, Annabel the sweet Octopus, and a whole family of penguins, Sammy and Ray hatch breakout plans of their own. That is when little Ricky and Ella arrive, determined to break in to rescue them. After a series of thrilling adventures and narrow escapes, our heroes head south to meet up with Shelly, Sammy's first and only love. Written by safwan

Inspirational theme in prison-breakout plot, but the animation is plain.
21 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

WITH the proliferation of animated movies, it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Sammy 2 leans towards the former. It has an inspiring story that's easy to understand but the animation is nothing new and adult viewers may start looking at their watches.

Two granddad turtles escape a bird attack but end up in a fishing trawler.

The trawler brings its prized possessions to Dubai, where an Indian runs a sea world below the sea. Here, rich visitors dine in luxury while enjoying the sight of fishes swimming outside.

The two turtles are introduced to a myriad of fish species, including Big D, a sea horse that's the gangster of the huge aquarium. His position is backed by two eels that speak in a French accent.

BTW, the movie is directed by Belgian Ben Stassen and is dubbed into English.

The turtles plot to escape, and this is where the plot emerges. It's a 'soft' copy of prison breakout movies. A hammerhead shark encourages viewers to never give up, which is the moral of this flick.

The turtles must first wait for the arrival of their two grandkids, but not before the latter escape from two menacing fishes in a chase more exciting than the one in The Bourne Legacy.

The movie picks up steam now as the whole gang of fishes get ready for their great escape.

Other than the sea horse, the only other interesting character is a lobster with split personality.
