Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2: Review

Beginning soon after the events of the disastrous food storm of the first film, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 follows our hero Flint as he and friends are all forced to leave their island. Flint accepts an invitation from his inventor idol, Chester V, and joins The Live Corp. Company. Flint is sent on a special mission to retrieve his machine, still active on the island, and so the intrigue and plot twists start.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 is a lovely, feel good story, so full of homages to movies, visual puns, cute character that will district you from the main on-screen action, and a lively and colourful environment.

The story alone is well written, with more than enough to hold the attention of the adult audience, while easy enough for the younger viewer to understand. The voice cast are perfectly suited for their roles, and the visuals and sound design are outstanding.

For a fun escape for reality, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 is a fun adventure for the family. It opens 31 January 2014 on South African screens.
