When Phoenix finds the first clue, he writes the letter "D" in white ink/marker in the pop-up book. When he opens the book at the organ, the "D" is black. See more »
[brandishes a sword]
Stage combat. Level Four.
[grabs a nearby rifle]
Well where I come from - laddie... They teach you never to bring a knife to your gunfight!
[cocks the rifle]
I think you'll find that fires plastic darts.
[fires a dart into the middle of his forehead]
So it does.
[pulls off the dart]
Whereas this sword - looks very sharp!

The first Paddington film was cleverly made but just wasn't long enough. This film however lasted longer and had way more to it which made it better. Phoenix as the villain was kind of better than Millicent as he was more cunning. Knuckles was a great addition, how you couldn't like him is just wrong, if you like Knuckles The Echidna then you'll like Knuckles McGinty.
Mr Curry could have done more although they gave Mr Gruber a more dominant role like in the books. The scenes were mainly funny. Judy was attractive like in the last film but three years' film difference can emphasize how much actors can change, especially Johnathan and Judy. The prison bit was a bit like Muppets Most Wanted as Paddington befriends his cell mates and then they start to enjoy themselves and then at the end they help his escape, only difference is that some of them join him. Overall a 9/10 for this film. Can't wait for Paddington 3.
