The Smurfs 2

Out Now On-Demand

In this live-action/animated family sequel, the Smurfs return to the human world in order to save Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) from the grasp of the dastardly Gargamel (Hank Azaria). 

Gargarmel has created his own Smurf-like critters - the rascaly Naughties - but lacks Smurf-essence to turn them true blue. So he kidnaps Smurfette, and brings her to Paris where he enjoys adoration as a great sorcerer. The dastardly wizard plans on using Smurfette's Smurfness and the Eiffel Tower (as an antenna) to finally return home. It's up to Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Grouchy and Vanity to get help from Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) and Grace (Jayma Mays) and save the Smurfing day.

The little ones will respond to the cuddly blue rural dwellers. Accompanying adults will be screaming blue bloody murder.

A painless holidaykiller, if not terribly worthwhile.

Hollywood Reporter

Beyond a few chuckle-worthy one-liners and some amusing visual comedy, there's not much to engage adults, although the wee ones should be distracted enough.

The Dissolve (USA)

The problem with Smurfs 2 isn't the message, it's the way the film repeats it so baldly and emphatically that even the youngest kids can get it.

Time Out London

There's a modicum of fun to be found in the blue-hued special effects, knockabout humour and decent voice cast.

Total Film (UK)

press

It's the same sappy drivel as before.

Variety (USA)

press

A sequel that changes scarcely a drop of Smurf-essence in its winning formula.

Great for Kids

There is nothing I love better than the look of enjoyment on my kids face. And that is what the Smurf 2 devlivered. There is really no need to produce an indepth analytical review. The fact is kids will love this. A steady 3/5 (because I'm an adult). The 4yr old in me screams 4/5.
