The Smurfs 2

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Live-ac­tion/an­i­mated fam­ily se­quel in which the Smurfs and their hu­man friends (Neil Pa­trick Har­ris and Glee’s Jayma Mays) must save Smur­fette (voiced by Katy Perry), who has been kid­napped by the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria). Also fea­tures the voices of Christina Ricci, Alan Cum­ming and Shaquille O’Neal. (Re­port, Page 10.) They say: De­spite praise for its CGI ef­fects, the film was crit­i­cised for be­ing way too long – even for fans of all things Schtroumpf (it’s French for Smurf!). Adults will have trou­ble stay­ing awake un­til the end cred­its roll. Wesay: Young kids will love it but like most se­quels, di­rec­tor Raja Gos­nell’s ( Home Alone 3 any­one?) The Smurfs 2 fails to live up to the orig­i­nal – which wasn’t much chop. Run­ning time 102 min­utes. Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta. Har­bour Town, Nerang.
