generally speaking, sequels aren't as good as the originals. but this sequel might be an exception
29 August 2013 | by nikozguriSee all my reviews

now, i really did enjoy "Niko and the Way to the Stars", i thought it was really cute, funny and endearing, and Finland really knows how to make lovable animated movies. okay, the story was a little bit predictable cause we've seen it basically over 100 times before. but overall, it was still a really cute movie.

"Niko 2: Little Brother, Big Trouble" is the sequel to the movie and it follows the story of Niko, who knows how to fly now. but he finds out his mom Oona's gonna get married with another reindeer (not Prancer, Niko's real dad). so now, he's gonna have to look after Jonni, his little stepbrother. but problem is, they hate each other like a lot. then, Jonni gets kidnapped by eagles who work for White Wolf, Black Wolf's sister. She wants revenge on Niko for her older brother's death. now, it's up to Niko, Julius, Wilma and Tobias to save Jonni, defeat White Wolf and go back home.

yeah, we all know that sequels usually aren't as good as the originals. usually sequels can really screw up and leave everybody booo-ing. but luckily "Niko 2" isn't one of em! even if the story's familiar, "Niko 2" was even cuter and more endearing than the original. i'm surprised that i liked this one a little more than the original. it had good animation and great comedy. i laughed in this movie more, it had good comedic timing. there wasn't any part in "Niko 2" where i was laughing so hard that i was like crying. that never happened, but still a really funny sequel. and a couple of times in the movie, i was like "i'm tearing up". like i said earlier, it was endearing and it did the job pretty good.

so, u might find the story a little familiar and predictable, but in the end "Niko 2" was a fun sequel with good animation, good comedic timing, lovable characters, and it was cute and endearing. if u have little kids and if you're bored, take your kids to this movie. i promise, you'll have a good time.

9/10
