What made the first Paddington so special was its ability to accurately Paddington 2 2018 Full Movie adapt the basic origins of Paddington Bear in a modern context, without seeming obnoxious, condescending or phony. Paddington isn’t the first modern adaptation of children’s characters to incorporate CGI and live-action characters; franchises like Garfield, The Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks as well as the upcoming Peter Rabbit all do so, but the former three all received fairly negative reviews and were largely annoying, even if the source material had fans. Perhaps because Paddington and the sequel feel very British, the two films are bright spots among the rough offerings in the family-film market of the last few years that aren’t from Disney or Pixar.

 Paddington 2, like Paddington, doesn’t condescend to its audience, and King and his co-writer Simon Farnaby (who voices an easily distracted security guard in both films) once again balance a more adult sense of humor with kid-friendly gags. Many of the set pieces — from an early sequence in which Paddington, working at a local barbershop, is unable to cut an old man’s hair without causing destructive chaos, to a farcical bit where the Browns hide in the book thief’s house — derive their inspiration from silent comedies.

(One gag, where Paddington is pushed through a series of gears and winds up with a sooty mustache, emphasizes its Charlie Chaplinesque inspiration.) Those jokes are coupled with visual gags and puns that will only work for the eagle-eyed adult viewers, while kids Paddington 2 Full Movie Online thrill to the sight of Paddington, say, winning over a group of surly prisoners with a bevy of marmalade sandwiches.

 The other element that remains present throughout Paddington 2 is its shamelessly emotional heart. The final shot is a tearjerker, a warm moment to which the entire film is building even amidst its goofy humor. Before that, the emotional core of Paddington 2 is Paddington fearing that his relationship to the Brown family is permanently damaged now that he’s been sent to prison; in reality, they’re trying to clear his name on the outside even as they appear to be ignoring their ursine charge. Yet King and Farnaby find a way to blend humor into even the most earnest moments, as when Mr. Brown delivers an impassioned speech about Paddington’s good heart to the always grouchy Mr. Curry (Peter Capaldi), then fails to start his car to begin a thrilling rescue of his adoptive son. Eventually, Brown’s other neighbors help him get on his way, but the gag of the car’s engine failing to turn over is the right way to undercut any potential treacle.

With few exceptions, it can be very easy for critics and audiences to forget the earliest releases of a given year. Paddington 2, like its predecessor, is being released in the U.S. in January, in part to capitalize on how light this month is on new family films. While it’s absolutely a worthy film to bring the whole family to, Paddington 2 is just generally a massive delight, a remarkable and hilarious example of how good family filmmaking can be. The 2015 film Watch Paddington 2 Full Movie Paddington could have easily been a case of lightning in a bottle, where the filmmakers got all the right ingredients into place just the once; instead, Paddington 2 is a step above the original, enough so that you almost hope the franchise keeps pressing forward, just like its hero.
