Hamming it Up
Having returned back to Earth as heroes the Chimp crew are waiting around for their next mission, that includes young tech wizard Comet who believes he is going to get on the next mission to Malgor and will meet little Kilowatt. But Comet is so disappointed when his name gets scratched from the mission he sneaks on to the spaceship and unintentionally launches off to Malgor. Whilst Comet gets to meet Kilowatt and look around Malgor the evil Zartog is up to no good back on Earth and manages to take over flight control which means the Chimps are going to have to defeat him again.
When I reviewed "Space Chimps" I basically said it was colourful entertainment for the very young but it offered little for anyone who understood what was going on. In many ways the same can be said about the sequel "Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back" as again it fails to offer anything for grown ups who find themselves having to watch this with a child. But unfortunately whilst I am sure very young children will be amused by the colours and quirky voices the level of humour is not there for older children as in those who will understand what is going on and will be left waiting for the laughs to come.
I am genuinely searching for something good to say about "Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back" and whilst it isn't completely terrible I can't come up with anything. In fact what I come up with is that despite only being 76 minutes long it feels drawn out and before you are even a third of the way through it is struggling to keep your attention.
What this all boils down to is that "Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back" is really for the only very young children who will be entertained by the voices and the colours rather than for what goes on in it.
