Light patches of snow start to lie all around the peaceful forest after the exciting events in Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants (2013), and papa Ladybug prepares for the winter, only to see his son get trapped in a large cardboard box of canned chestnut cream destined for the sun-kissed Guadeloupe. Once more--in this thrilling new adventure a long way from home--the determined father, his old companions, and some new Caribbean friends set out on a dangerous rescue mission in the heart of the lush jungle, as mesmerising praying mantises and hungry hairy tarantulas lurk in every nook and cranny. Will the dauntless search party make it in time? Written by Nick Riganas

It was such a shame that I watched Minuscule 2 alone in a theatre. To be fair, the movie was going to get a limited release anyway and the theatre was not a convenient location. Still, one has to wonder "Why aren't there animated films as simple and effective as this?"

Being a silent French animated film with little backstory, the story would be so unfamiliar for a regular moviegoer. However, it gives the movie a unique storytelling that you just could not get in almost any non-Pixar animated movie out there.

Animation is simple yet effective. The story? Even without the dialogue, you understand the story but you would often be surprised at times. The characters? Even without names, you still feel for them because each character was well thought out.

This movie is a feast for your senses and I left the theatre a very happy young adult. If only most animated movies would follow suit and not go for tired and unoriginal plots in the first place...

(Watched the movie at Shaw Theatres Selatar Mall, 2 May 2019)
