The movie’s plot centers on Paddington (Ben Whishaw) who wants to buy an expensive pop up book for his Aunt Lucy’s (Imelda Staunton) birthday. However things go astray for Paddington when he is framed for stealing the book and it is up to the Browns to clear Paddington’s good name as well as find the real thief. The story to Paddington 2 played out expectedly, and whether that is a good or bad thing is the latter in my book. There were few surprises to this tale while certain plot points were too reminiscent to that of first movie. Yet despite being sticky in certain areas this plot had plenty of merits to it. The story’s adventurous aspect flourished as there was never a dull moment in this sequel. Though the movie spends a lot of time with Paddington behind bars the plot never wavered as it had good pacing and moments to keep the main concept interesting. The tale to this family adventure was one filled with character and entertainment and this did just enough to make the new chapter in Paddington’s journey a memorable one.
Paddington 2 was just as much of a delight as its predecessor was. Although the likes of story could have been stronger it did not take away from enlightening factors such as the cast, effects and presentation. Through its sense of adventure Paddington 2 managed to be an experience where I found myself entertained, charmed and having a strange urge to try a marmalade sandwich.
