I was like everyone, the first movie was awful. But I decided to give the sequel a second chance and went to see it in theaters. And this what I think about the movie:
13 October 2017 | by natalienkSee all my reviews

I thought the second one was going to be worse than the first one. But when I saw it in theaters, I was shocked. I was surprisingly impressed! The second one is 100% better than the first one. The directors did a lot of improvement on the second one, the animation is great, characters are likable, story is better and it was entertaining. I think this movie is worth to watch and people should forget about the first one. This might be the first time that the sequel is better than the first movie. I did a movie review on The Nut Job 2 on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8Fdl_pi2_E) I am proud of the directors for making the second one better, the animators did a great job with the animation and I can't wait for a third one. Families should go see this movie, trust me, you will enjoy it.
