This has taken far too long to review but here we are. I really liked this film and when I first heard of it I didn’t care, love a pleasant surprise. Its action packed, funny, got a great voice cast, and the story is quite touching, very much to my surprise. The visuals in this are great, I really thought the mix of Stop-motion and CGI was very impressive; I was often unable to see the difference in the film. The characters are either really funny or are great character parodies. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

I was writing a review for another trailer but this came out and obviously got pushed to the front of the queue. Now like everyone when this was announced I was excited, I loved the first film and a sequel sounded great but I had my doubts about a successful sequel so many years later, however this trailer has lowered my fears but there still there. Trailer looks good, it’s funny and the cast seem to remember their characters. Feels more like a long teaser but for now it will do and hope for a great film to equal its predecessor. Hope you enjoy the trailer and stills I managed to grab. Add your comments and likes at the end.
I had a lot of fun watching this film and am going to defend it as much as I can. The swift story, the fun fight choreography, the impressive practical effects and as much gore as possible put a smile on my face. I saw the trailer and this is what I wanted, a fun action-horror B movie. Granted the story and acting could be better and the opportunity to have some fantastic lines was wasted at times but I struggle to understand the majority of the negative reviews. I wonder if this film will ever be recognized as a cult film because I really liked it and so did a few others I have talked to, time will tell. It’s the second most enjoyable experience I have had in the cinema this year and I hope this continues into the spring season. Please leave your opinions in the comments as I am sure there will be some opposing views.
The campaign isn’t really clever but it is really funny and if you don’t laugh at something in this film there is something wrong with you. If you like Will Ferrell (Anchorman) then this won’t disappoint as he is still doing what he does best. Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) worked great with will Ferrell in this and would love to see them together again. The satire could have been smarter considering the upcoming elections but neither the less it’s still worth watching because it’s funny as hell. And Dylan McDermott’s character Tim Wattley (American Horror Story) was absolutely hysterical and I can’t believe he wasn’t in any trailer. That scene where he is in the kitchen put in tears, he plays such a good serious person.
Now just to state that originally I had a list of 38 comedy films and then had to cut it down to just 10 films, so I know people will be asking why their favourite film isn’t on here and believe me it was hard to cut 28 of my favourite comedy films off the list. But the films on the list are the best of the best and deserve your laughs.
