OR mabey he said no, or didn't sign on for another Movie? Mabey I can go look a few things and do my own research... If I find anything, I'll start a thread. Okey? ^_^
- Little preacher man.
I'm on my way to do better things, to make better choices, and to make God proud! That is my constant endeavor.
"For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, And bronze walls against the whole land... They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you, For I am with you," says the Lord, "to deliver you."
I gave it 8/10. It was enjoyable, but frankly I think it would have needed a bit more. Perhaps if they had had more time in making it..?
Pros: +I like Kenai/Nita, as you probably have noticed. They are friends, they need to work together to reach their goal, they help each other, eventually their home is with one another. And I like Nita's character; another very determined and independent Disney girl.
+There's brotherly/sisterly love too; the bond of Kenai and Koda is strong and obviously they are both willing to make sacrifices for one another's happiness. And a strong bond seems to develop between Nita and Koda as well. It would have been nice to see a bit more of them, though.
+Nice animation, better than in many other sequels. It has bothered me, though, that the major characters had obviously had several animators so they look slightly different in different scenes.
+Beautiful music; not quite as thrilling as the original's, but still beautiful. The songs are enjoyable and I really love some parts of the score. In overall, the only piece of score I truly dislike is the one playing during the fight. But since no one forces me to listen to it, I guess I don't care.
+Some elements familiar from the first film. I agree that watching BB2 feels different than watching the original, but I enjoy the few familiar details. Like the wedding scene in the end; doesn't it remind you of Kenai's ceremony in the end of BB1, with the drums, dancing, the people forming two groups and a bear walking down an aisle?
Cons: -The general love-in-the-air -theme. Kenai/Nita is fine, but it's a bit too much that everyone is looking for a mate. I know it takes place in spring when animals really do pair off, but I just am not into this love-at-first-sight-everyone-has-to-find-someone-right-now -type of romance.
-The lack of some important characters from the first film. Ok, I can understand that Denahi and Sitka don't exactly have a reason to appear, but I find it a bit weird that Kenai doesn't even mention them.
-Kind of a plot hole when it comes to a certain minor character who acts quite dangerously towards the end, A.K.A Atka. Well, ok, maybe a plot hole doesn't sound the best choice of words here, but seriously, they don't tell much anything about him -- or his relationship with Nita. As what is the audience supposed to see him, to begin with?
In a nutshell (once again): I really like it but some things bother me.
I believe in God and in Lord Jesus Christ!
"Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end. But in my heart's a memory, and there you'll always be." -The Fox and the Hound
We're going to see the Arctic Ocean and the midnight sun.. and high Norwegian mountains.
This sequel... felt like a fanfic. I didn't even WANT to watch it, but my Mom bought it and so I had to see it. I was... positively suprised. I thought it would be a lot worse, but in the big picture it is still not worth to spend money on. Maybe watch it if it runs on TV one day.
The whole plot ruins what the first movie was about and most of the scenes just feel like snippits from other Disney movies (Opening: Mulan/Pocahontas, Raccons: Tarza, Finale: Lion King) But mixing up several awesome things does not make the movie itself good. No, it makes it a rip off. A rip off with a limelight Mary Sue :/
I do have to agree with the Pro's that Anya posted though. This is basically all that saves this sequel to me compared to the other sequels.

10/10 Beauty eh
This was an awesome movie that continued the amazing actions and just simple movie in the first movie.And watching the second movie was awesome as well.
A thing about me,I accidentally watched the second on tv and figured it would be cool,and here about two years before,I said Brother Bear,the first movie,would be totally stupid and here I liked the second,loved it,got the first,watched it and enjoy BOTH movies now.
