The first part of "The Secret Life of Pets" was released in 2016 and won a global box office of US$875 million and became one of the most profitable movies of the year. The cute-looking and tough-hearted rabbit boss has instantly become a familiar face and internet celebrity on all major social platforms, and even WeChat, the leading domestic social software software, is pushing the rabbit boss’ emoticons.
So I got the first word of mouth andFunding, the second part took advantage of the trend, intending to continue to write brilliant. The following is a comprehensive review of the differences and highlights of "The Secret Life of Pets 2" compared with the previous one.
All the additions at the character level, the overall style continues the previous work
As a cute pet animation movie, the second one is naturally not discarded. The essence of one: It's cute. The whole movie continues to stage a variety of pets' stupid and cute funny stories. The relaxed and cheerful style is no different from the first one.
Except for the cute and funny old characters The boss of the rabbit, the dumb and cute Max, the face value of Tweet, the flower of Gaoling Bingbing, etc., the film also added several new characters:
Shepherd dog voiced by Hudson Ford" "Uncle Lu", the image of an idyllic fierce man is daunting; the beautiful and kind princess dog Daisy has courage, strategy and responsibility; the large but "small, poor and helpless" "big cat" white tiger, frowns It hurts people.
These new characters have enriched the connotation of the movie as a whole and greatly improved the coverage of the characters.
The plot is still simple, the story line is Change three
As a comedy animated film featuring the "easy and happy" label, "The Secret Life of Pets 2" is still the same as "Love 1", and there is no brainstorming The plot, but in the second part, the screenwriter tried a three-line parallel narrative approach, telling the story of several pets in different scenes and plots at the same time in different spaces.story.
However, the technique is a bit sloppy and does not highlight the advantages of this model. It even feels a bit incoherent, and the three-line story does not form a connection. But because the plot is simple, it will not affect the understanding and viewing of the main story in the end.
As the protagonist, Max is always the center of contradiction. In the first one, I want to get rid of Boss Du, and in the second oneFall in love with Uncle Lu and kill each other. However, Max, who thought he would never like life in the countryside, gradually accepted this interesting place while getting along with nature day by day. Under the intentional teaching of Uncle Lu, he successfully overcome his fear and succeeded. Saved a mischievous lamb, and everyone was happy.
From dependence to releaseHands, from 1 to 2, form a perfect closed loop
In "Love 1", in addition to advancing everyone, it also earned the audience a lot of tears. The expression of "not open to humans" realizes the dependence of humans on pets.
In "The Secret Life of Pets 2", it is to teach everyone to "let go", "Life is long, everyone can only walk with you for a while", and the life span of pets is limited. , Even more so. Although the owner and pet will inevitably develop fetters and feelings during the years and months of getting along, they still have to know how to give each other space and learn to grow.
comprehensively Look, "Love 1" has received extensive praise and good box office due to its strength. After the second film was released, it is difficult to create a myth again according to the trend.
The first person to climb Mount Everest Will stay in the history, but the second one may not have so much attention. After all, "The Secret Life of Pets 2" is just a continuation of the first, and there are not too many breakthroughs. If it is just a well-matched one without much surprise A sequel, so naturally it won’t cause too much splash. Only "blue is better than blue" can catch everyone's attention.
But this can’t be counted as a shortcoming of "The Secret Life of Pets 2". This is a kind of morbid requirement for us as viewers, always thinking that the sequel is better than the previous one , If you just look at it as a comedy animation alone, it is still very qualified, with a relaxed rhythm and a cheerful style, suitable for alleviating our tight nerves this summer.
