To answer a mysterious call fro help from the Mimimoy people, he enters their world miniaturized. By the time he works out with friends it was a trick, the mastermind has already escaped, ready to strike in our world. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent Entertainment and as Good as the First.
8 March 2010 | by Apathy772See all my reviews

This is a 2 part movie. The first part was released in Dec of 09 and the second part was released in Feb 2010. If you don't like the ending watch the second part which unlike Harry Potter took only 3 months to be released. Also just so you know there are maybe 3 scenes uptight parents will not like. There are hundreds of scenes in Shrek I would not let my child see. Movie was great and WOW entertaining if you watch both parts of the movie as a whole. Cannot believe this movie was made in France did you see the A star list of cast in the Original. Madonna, Robert Dinero, Mia Farrow, Snoop Dogg, Jimmy Fallon and Freddie Highmore is amazing. This film neither looks or feels the part of any B movie or any Indie Film. The effects for the budget were Awesome. I cannot believe it's getting such horrible reviews. Some of you need to re-watch the crap Disney and Pixar are putting out and the subliminal messages they pursue. Anyways I hope this review at least makes you look at it. Watch the first movie if you haven't seen it then watch the second and third sequentially or else you will be mad at the seconds ending.
