A great animated adventure
3 April 2008 | by stian_thomassenSee all my reviews

It so sad seeing this movie getting so low rating when I know it's all because of that bad American version.

Before you vote on this movie, get a taste of the original Danish voice acting. You will understand why.

In the American version all voice acting, music and sound effects(Yes, they have redone the music, and for the worse I might add) are like keyboard from the 80's quality. While the original Danish version have a Disney quality.

So what about the movie? It's a great movie, that starts on where the first one left off. Rita miss Hugo and Hugo miss Rita, but they are world apart. Fate brings them together again, when Hugo is captured and brought back to Denmark again.

The animation is not as great as the first movie, but still good. The songs gonna be stuck in your brain for some time. The characters are lovelier ever, and you will have a good hour fun.

This is a "one to watch" movie, but I BEG you to see the original Danish version!
