Storyline

On the outskirts of Riverton, "The Safest City in America", a pensive Inspector Gadget sits in his Gadgetmobile, along with his canine companion, Brain. Gadget is back on the job, on stakeout, but he is concerned that everything is too quiet in Riverton. He has a very simple, rational answer to this; " it's always the most quiet just before criminals strike". Evil must be afoot. In a moment of overzealous crime fighting Gadget arrests an elderly women for wreckless driving, but not without incident. In his effort to make the arrest Gadget's many crime fighting "accessories" go wildly astray. It's time to report back to headquarters for a checkup. Baxter, the "Q" of the Police Department, delivers the prognosis - as he is a prototype things are bound to have some glitches. The remedy is close at hand. But, before Baxter can tell of his new "top secret", Gadget is confronted by a furious Chief Quimby. The little old lady arrested earlier for wreckless driving turns out to be Quimby's ...

Trivia

The special effects crew used power drills for some of their stunts. For example, when Gadget first sees G2, his hat spins when a power drill connected to a pole to the hat spins. See more »

Goofs

This movie was dedicated to partially hiding Claw's face, mainly from the eyes up. However, there are 2 instances where they accidentally fail at this. The first is when Claw is at his Bowlrite lair. As he exclaims that they will build a super weapon, the light reflecting off his claw shines on his face thus removing the shadows & exposing him right before he begins to explain his plan. This occurs again when the Gadget and G2 arrive at the Reserve. When Claw dragged Penny towards the Ice Cream Truck and calls for Brick & McKibble, the camera goes too low and accidentally shows us a good side-view glimpse of his face. See more »

Could get into it's vibe. Not a MeToo movie.
17 December 2018 | by Randy_DreammakerSee all my reviews

When I watch a movie, whether for pleasure or to review, its difficult to like a movie where I can't find a place to plug into the vibe. That is what I found in the case of Inspector Gadget 2.

What that tells me as a filmmaker, is this movie has really poor bump points, tension rise and a lackluster resolution.

I was surprised to actually stumble across a second release of Inspector Gadget, which means I either saw it in the past and it was utterly forgettable, or it simply had such a low performance I didn't hear about it.

With the first release, the vibe or groove was easy to find and enjoy it, regardless of whether I liked it or not. With this sequel, it was pretty average all the way through the movie.

One of the first things that came to mind watching Inspector gadget 2 is, "Here is another Inspector Gadget movie using an actor who for the most part is probably near the end of their career".

Given the available choices, they probably made the next best possible casting choice for Inspector Gadget, since Matthew Broderick either didn't want it or wasn't asked to do it. I did for a moment, wonder what a Jim Carey casting would have looked like. I may no like Carey as a person, but as an actor he is enormously talented for these character kinds of movies, more so than Johnny Depp who is who gets these Character casts here at the end of the 2010's.

The introduction of G2 (Gadget 2) in a gender reversal roles for the sake of inclusion that so many movies have followed was not an entire shock, but as happens with most of such movies, it didn't work out to well. In this case, I think Disney totally blew it at the end by removing the platonic nature of their working relationship. I realize this film was released in 2003, however I am watching it for the first time in 2018, a year bombarded by the MeToo movement. This movie would get a MeToo fail from the HimToo side of the current culture, since G2 broke the platonic nature of a law enforcement career and violated the unsuspecting Inspector Gadget.

Another aspect of this sequel I didn't enjoy was the presentation of "The Claw", which was handled 100% better in the original Inspector Gadget.

Overall, it was a fair attempt by Disney to once again take an animated cherished cartoon and make a life acted version of it.

What I would like to see from Disney however, is an extremely brilliant, well scripted animated cartoon version of Inspector Gadget based on the original character images, style and story - and not one of those 3D computer animated ripoff's that the Incredibles 2 is. But a real solid entertaining, authentic true to the original comic book animation along the lines of "Mars needs Moms". They could even include G2 for the sake of Inclusion as long as they maintain the clear platonic boundaries that are expected of law enforcement.

I have it a 4, because there is no 4 1/2 and its not deserving of the 5 that I've given to much better movies.
