Inspirational theme in prison-breakout plot, but the animation is plain.

Author: Jeff Lee
21 August 2012

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.

A good family film

Author: Neil Welch from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sammy is a turtle: he is captured and put in an underwater high-end aquarium, and it is up to baby turtle offspring to rescue him.

This CGI sequel to a film which I never saw didn't fill me with enthusiasm beforehand and, having seen it (not in 3D), it is absolutely clear how much of a debt it owes to Finding Nemo.

But, in its own way, it is rather good. The characters are well designed (I have some reservations about the turtles' creepily human heads and shoulders), the settings and animation are good, and the story is involving, if derivative. Plus this is aimed at family audiences, and much of the design and humour appeals strongly to the younger element of the audience (though some sequences will be scary for them).

Recommended for family viewing.

Weirdest soundtrack ever

Author: rsplace from Canada
22 July 2014

Just an "okay" plot that used strange devices in uncomfortable ways to start the story. Very strange choices for the voice-acting. Mish mash of songs that had little or no connection to the scenes you hear them in. Animation was OK but some direct copying of Finding Nemo. I had zero connection to any of the characters and they really weren't memorable. A lot of the scenes I felt uncomfortable letting my 6 year-old watch...they could have been handled/written/directed differently without hurting the weak plot. I would not recommend this unless you had nothing else to watch and you needed a video babysitter for a child 5-7. Just goes to prove you don't need a good script to get produced, just connections.

Decent kids movie.

I thought this was a good movie. Decent message, not as good music as the first one, but still, it was good. It has a positive message.

I have heard others saying that is is too scary, but my 2 yo watches it without getting upset. One chase scene she is on the edge of her seat, but she cheers at the end.

One of my only complaints is that they use the word friggin. That word, and words like it have no place in a kids movie. I was actually really surprised by it.

And the mafia type seahorse is a little odd.

But otherwise, good movie.
