A TURTLE’S TALE 2: SAMMY’S ESCAPE FROM PARADISE (Theatrical Release France 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Starsììì

A Turtle’s Tale 2: Sammy’s Escape from Paradise—
a sequel film that did not need to be produced—may be good fare for the child, but not for the adult. It seems to border on a message movie, the sea horse’s voice gets a little annoying, the voicing cast does not portray the personality of the animated characters in a realistic manner. Low creativity sequences fight for competition because it seems we have seen this animation film’s story before.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a good concept to think about why someone would want to get ‘out of paradise’, but that single idea has to be backed with a plethora of other conditions before the movie becomes good. This film needs to be shelved and after some thinking, do a retry next year.
