Advantages: Superb entertainment!
I normally go for 15 or 18 certificates, but I wanted something with less violence in for a change – something to give my mind a rest for playing catch-up! And so, I chose Toy Story 2. It’s proof that a movie with a U rating can be superb entertainment for all ages! Look past the name – it’s a film for everyone, and I have to say it’s one of the cleverest I’ve seen in a long time. The special effects are incredible – the whole film must be computer generated!
The picture quality is amazing – such crisp clear computer animations, brought to life with likeable characters, and as you watch you can see how the story line is going, but the movie is full of surprises! Even on my PS2, with it’s so-called ‘below par’ DVD playback, my family and I were able to sit back and enjoy the film. I was expecting it to be good, but TS2 is one of the funniest films around – brought to you in true Disney style. From the advertisements at the start for future and present Disney DVD titles, to the witty, some almost hilarious ‘retakes’ at the end, Toy Story’s sequel does not disappoint!
I found the voice acting first rate with Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and various other stars playing the roles of the miniature toys. I found myself calling out ‘ah that’s Lenny from the Simpson’s!’ and ‘Isn’t that the guy from 3rd Rock from the sun?’ You’ll no doubt notice many more people as the film progresses, but I just remember these! The way the people look real, but still obviously computer generated is brilliant! The film is great for children and adults – any age in fact, and it really tells some good morals about friendship and things.
The DVD special features, other than the obvious picture clarity difference, ar ethe bonus footage including a preview of 'Monsters Inc', a short animation from Pixar, an excellent chara
cter featurette and the funniest music video you'll ever see! Woody and Buzz are the greatest, but Mr and Mrs Potato head made me laugh ;o)
Definitely a 5 star movie that I’ll no doubt watch again and again - a gem!
