Abandon all hope ye who enter who will dare to look at the work of scenic art. The first film pleased by the openness and genuine gaiety, was a light, unobtrusive a real holiday, leaving behind a velvety finish and a good mood. The second is the film you can compare how is no enough, "Transformers: the Last knight," where there were a lot of interesting ideas, not have received proper implementation. But in spite of occurring after the headache, there was one to watch.

But here? Where Toastmasters? Where the contests? Where fun? Where Anthony Hopkins, who can shake this a gloomy party? It was supposed to be disco, but not a rural funeral. And, Yes, "Mamma Mia" is now drama. Not even so — the cat with bipolar disorder not can find any bed he sleep — on that harder, or that softer, so this movie is not can decide — to weep or to laugh. However, gaps happen, but they are as need how important missing character, and this fact undermines trust, because it is not it was known in advance, because the studios knew that such an unexpected plot device will most certainly affect the box office, he become available to the public. It is a positive attitude is baffling.

And the right to only this, but in the film, practically nothing. as necessary. Conventionally, the film is divided into two temporary lines — past present. At the competent use of flashbacks gracefully woven into the story, here they are the appearance is justified in two or three occasions. They inhibit the dynamics of the picture and stretch the duration. There didn't show anything new, and, in addition, they manage to misinterpret the events of the first film. All these races can timeline need for hiding the obvious truth, to which you get to the middle of view — "Mamma Mia 2" is not brings nothing, for what it was worth to remove.

And when there is no content, over all should prevail at least form. Only a familiar face — not a guarantee, because the first film took a combination of the two aforementioned variables. From previous images were only ashes, they — a pale shadow of his former self, and pretend all so there, there no desire to. Music the rooms are not represent something special, and the staging of some of them depressing.

Become a lifesaver could cher the role of the grandmother of the heroine Amanda Seifrid and mother Meryl Streep. However, first, it comes too late, and secondly, its very existence in presented in the picture creates a huge plot hole sizes. To her so many questions, starting with"true Catholic" and ending with "Where are you all time? And why do come from?". And guess what? Have it also has its own little conflict that is resolved literally in five minutes when the swing there was obviously not a penny, and on a ruble.

Yeah, that I say, if even a cameo of a woman who in the first film, seeing the crowd fleeing in an unknown direction, people throwing sticks and in the triumphant cry he raised his hands to the sky, and well... ahem... ahem... ahem... I hope you get the gist of my dance moves.

The only thing that in "Mamma Mia 2" is certainly good, so is the selection of actors for young versions of known characters. It is a pity that in the end, it has no value.

Different and be could. But could be much, much better.

If the plot of "Mamma Mia!" could to boast at least some intrigue, even if the original, consisting in the protagonist attempts to determine who is of the three beauties her real dad, it in the second part, published ten years later, there and this. Sophie rebuilt the hotel, realizing the dream of the mother, and is now going to arrange for the occasion of the feast, inviting all who can, including the trio of the fathers. In parallel, tells the story of a young Donna, who, after finishing University, decided to travel around the world in the pursuit of happiness. However, the journey was short-lived, and all the events fit in three stormy nights with three different men and arrive at a Greek island so beautiful that I want to stay there forever.

In the absence of any intelligible content, one has to form, the first glance, the problem seems to be no. Inspired by the incredible success of the film Phillida Lloyd, Ol Parker was considered for the benefit principle not to change the basic concept, diluting the old caste of young actors, and, of course, changing the soundtrack, leaving only made in the name of the song. However, if the first part looked pretty organic, even without claiming to be something more than just a nice summer movie with recognizable music, the second from the first frame is falling apart on part. Sucked from the finger is the conflict between Sophie and her mate immediately sets the movie's tone second-rate melodrama, intrigue with a torn invitation to the grandmother was despoilered in the trailer, and the story of Donna, though pleased with the performance, Lily James, but exactly the appearance of the young Harry, for those who in 2008, criticized the singing of Pierce Brosnan, is clearly not heard the vocal attempts of Hugh Skinner.

But perhaps the main mistake Ola Parker is the involvement of two timlines with so unequal compositions of actors. Yes, superalliance of the fate of Sophie and Donna looks a good find, and some of their lives copes with a task to squeeze out a tear unsophisticated audience, but the young actors are too inferior to their age "copies" to get the history of the late seventies, stated in the slogan level. A feeble attempt to sneer at this look pretty toothless, so that one can only wonder how the mother of the heroine Amanda Seyfried managed three times to step on some same rake and choose so uninteresting and charisma partners.

However, if you take "Mamma Mia! 2" not as a feature film, and as a set of clips varying degrees of success, perception of tape is changing in a good way. Without an awkward romantic lines, instantly read "twists" and the abundance of carefully hung guns cutting cute video doing and creates the right atmosphere — carefree barefoot summer, with a light breeze, the sea waves and a sense of the infinity of youth, which sometimes is missing in vain perverts of modern life.

Musical. Background and at the same time continuation of the movie "Mamma Mia" in 2008 I recently watched, and opinion you can read the below, if interested. As know I watched the first part only that would understand that occurs in the second picture that got me interested in the poster that pictured below this entry from my favorite theater. To not come from the day of the premiere, so leaving very far, but luck was on my side, and today I looked at it. And if General — good continuation, not inferior to the first part. So let's analyze this musical through.

So, the pros:

1. The mood — the picture literally their positive charges and a summer mood, we already in soon will leave, so enjoy it a little while, moving on this picture cinema room. I sincerely urge you!

2. Structure — I said that already. and the background and the sequel simultaneously, and the transition between them is pretty quick but not to worry, you don't get confused. Generally it is quite a bold decision, though nothing new. Let me explain, if the creators have only made the sequel, then the picture would just good, but nothing more, and would another sequel to the good, and forgot it would be pretty quickly. With the other hand if the painting was the background, then there would most of the whining that the creators haven't got generally — young actors like their prototypes. And eventually us history and the continuation, which will satisfy the most discerning audience. At least satisfied me.

3. Familiar songs — it same the hits of the group ABBA, which all have more than one generation of people of all countries and continents. To be honest, I feared the iconic hits not hear, but when she heard one of them, I was almost started to place directly in the room — it is expensive. I literally felt like a hero of this musical.

4. Old friends — the actors who played the main characters in the first part is back and here. And see that they did it, even despite the age, because with the release of the first part of the past ten years! Actors are literally living their characters.

5. New face — brand new coped with the task, read more about some of them, I will explain below, but can not to mention a good selection of young actors, although not always managed to achieve a perfect likeness.

6. Final credits — they perfectly replicate the style of the first part, and again it is one of favorite songs of Abba, well and surprise exists.

7. Humor — he was pleased, although he there was and a little contemptible, but it to place did not cause the effect of "Fi". To the same here he is quite casually. its the dosage amount.


1. Predictability — since this love story, all I understand perfectly what all over. "Unexpected" twists and turns so unexpected, so what it will end "Game of Thrones". It is so, nothing to do

2. Boring songs — you can throw me rotten tomatoes, but I am a fan of ABBA, and not all of the songs I came to taste. Even though I and the lover in some extent, but most of the songs sounded in this picture of me not logged in. You know, it net improvement.

A little bit about main characters:

1. Young Donna Sheridan in performed by Lily James — graduate of a prestigious University, have decided to go for my dream Paradise island, the way to which it there are three different guys, each of which affected the her did the one we know in the first part. Fun, cheerful and bold. Lily just perfectly embodied the image of this brave woman.

2. Sophie Sheridan is performed by Amanda Seifred — Donna's daughter, became the owner of the hotel. Despite the elapsed time of the first picture all the same fun and honest girl, even more like his mother. To the same now in her life had happened, why all the surrounding become doubly happy. Amanda returned to her role that very successfully with it.

3. Fernando played by Andy Garcia — hotel Manager, Sophie, helps her to realize the dream of her mother. Experienced people, which unfortunately, there's an old love trauma, from where he still not been can recover. I didn't recognize Andy from a mighty beard.

In the end, have a good continuation of a good musical, which will give you a great summer mood, and you literally will go to dance favorite songs of the group ABBA.
