Storyline

The Drac pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania... Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny - and in for a major cultural shock of her own - "Vampa" Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But little do they know that Drac's grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood - and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania - things are going to get batty! Written by Sony Pictures

Another story from Hotel Transylvania
5 December 2015 | by natsuka_areiSee all my reviews

Well, i do have high hopes in this film since i pretty much like the first one. Sadly, it did not meet my expectation. You see, the the trailer was good. You can see all the fun part in the movies and it made you wonder about Dennis, the new character in the movie. It did make me couldn't wait to see this movie. However, it turned out to be a quite ordinary movie without any element of surprise ( the trailer, maybe already told us 80% of the story )

Basically, this movie told us the continuation of Hotel Transylvania where Mavies and Jonathan finally got married and had a kid, named Dennis. The kid, looks totally normal just like another mortal kid. The Drac, Dennis grandpa, want to prove ( or should i say, have a high expectation ) that his grandson is also a vampire not just a normal human.

The ending itself, was quite disappointing. I thought like " what? so, that's all? just like that? so, what's the moral of this story?". The ending doesn't give quite impact and so the story feels flat.

It was a fine movie for family, but not the kind of movie that i will highly recommended to watch. The first one is much more better ( and funnier ) than this one.
