In our day animated films it is hard not to get a sequel. Anyone have not surprised. one or other cartoon gets a sequel in a few years. These sins and Pixar (and what's the point in"Cars 3"?), and Disney once worked as a conveyor. So when I heard from "Catch a wave" came a sequel, to me it was a funny picture. On the meeting of the boards of Directors of Sony Pictures someone timidly suggested: "Hey, you know what our project really need a sequel? The pseudo cartoon about penguins-surfers, which first came out 10 years ago, and, secondly, though was nominated on"Oscar" still stars in the sky is not enough." The result of the end product predictable.

Let's start with that is one kind of a sequel, which is kind of like a sequel, but has little to do with the main story. If you remember, the first part was such an important character to plot — the Big Zee. Here from the script it removed there even the mention of it. An important part of history is simply ignored without any reason. Instead, added the Brave Five of the penguins, who are voiced by well-known wrestler. Then follows the ordinary adventure: a little bit primitive, with sucked out the finger of morality.

The voice characters of the original painting took part of the first-magnitude star: Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges and Zooey Deschanel. As far as I know the original animated film was involved in motion capture with real surfers for more reliable animation. "Surf 2" screw bit different way. I believe that the main sponsor of the project was the Federation of wrestling WWE one of conditions of funding for the project was to promote their stars. So that the voice acting participated Paige, the Undertaker, John Cena and others. Of course, they profession involves acting talent, but in "Catch the wave 2," they don't show any tricks. They give voice to the characters with what I think they failed. In the Russian dubbing and for a Russian audience, especially for young, it do not sense — the names of the wrestlers not particularly well-known in Russia and their original voices replaces the stupid dubbing. Even references to the wrestler in the images of penguins (e.g., penguin in the hat of the Undertaker) can be regarded, perhaps, as "fun for their" what a child simply does not understand.

Many people criticize the animation, but actually, she went to the middle level. Not to say that she's gorgeous, but at least she non-irritating, pleasant to the eye, and characters look like a nightmare for an animator. But agree that the animation is fresh and erased from the memory after viewing.

Of course, "Catch the wave 2" bad. Bad, but not terrible. In there anything good, but if you and want amuse and "Zeropolis" and"Zveroboy" already zasmotreny to holes, I think there is nothing criminal in to show the "Catch the wave 2". Stupid, primitive, but not harmful.

The cartoon left a dual impression. It like a good representative of its genre, but it has negative characters, on which disgusted look. Just because they repel the viewer with their behavior (these two characters; those looking — you'll understand).

If to speak in General terms, what the picture is not disappoint. Plot diluted with new characters, which of course is a plus. Theme with wrestlers very much. From each character, familiar to us the first part will be a prototype of the world of WWE, with whom they will be a duet, and in the course of the cartoon "Catch the wave 2" will compete with other duos (I hope that explained as understandable). Most liked, of course, Birdman Joe. As always — the funniest character of all. It Duo the Undertaker (big surprise, not it?) — the funny thing is that is in picture.

At the end of the cartoon, as always, shows that in any situation you need to have a good nature and humanity (as you can see, the penguins anywhere without this quality), even to its most fundamental and hated rivals. The viewer will be satisfied.

PS — it is a Pity that was no hero Brock Lesnar. I think it would interesting.

I very rarely razrozhdayutsya reviews, but this time for some reason decided it to do. Probably because the cartoon I liked very much so. Here the first part was so yourself, well there such an original, in addition to ideas about the penguins, surfers nothing. The competition freshman with a perennial champion, and may not win, but not the defeat of the first — Oh, what we never seen it?

The second part gives adventure. Even The Adventure. All this story a Mysterious island where there are semi-mythical and semi-mystical Fence, and searches of these Islands, and trek across the island with all hazards to the treasured Purpose — isn't it is matched with marking place in the first part? No. Here is the dynamics of the plot, there is not very.

New characters are introduced and revealed quite clearly. Each member of the Badass Five leaves you feeling whole and developed image, with only him inherent characteristics, as the same Undertaker, for example, which cannot be confused with anyone. Yes, obviously the characters were drawn with their prototypes in the real world of wrestling even voiced these prototypes, well so is bad?

About the schedule and say nothing. Eyes pleased all — desert, jungle hot lava, stormy sea and a sandy beach Pin GU..

Well, the moral of course is, where do without — don't leave a friend in trouble, most importantly friendship and not your victory without crew no, well, and it is well it is right after all.

If you take the cons, then they are insignificant. After all, if there was a Big Z, and it would Mr. McMahon how his protégé would be a steeper more fun.

The ending was blurry. Walked, drove, flew, came, caught the wave, and then the Tank is messed up, and so it was not clear whether saddled Mr. McMahon zipper, or not because it there do not have shown, focusing on the Tank the Undertaker.

PS. Cartoon not masterpiece very hard and dynamically tailored. I'm very pleased that characters sat on one place like in the first part, and performed an outstanding and boring quest for to surf on the lightning.

PPS. Well here is the third part of probably have of course not need.
