Charlie and Itchy have returned to Earth to find Gabriel's Horn, but along the way they meet up with a sweet young boy named David, who ran away from home. And a beautiful Irish setter named Sasha LaFleur set them straight.
But time is running out, and if Charlie is going to secure the valuable horn, he will have to prove himself worthy of his wings by taking on two incredible villains in a hair-raising, breathtaking race to the finish!
I had a look for some movies I haven't seen before for us to watch with the kids as a family movie, I thought that this one would be good but I found that after a few minutes I wanted the movie to just hurry up and finish. The story is weak, there is a lot that you just have to accept or maybe have watched the first one to understand and the drawings aren't that well done either. The kids watched the movie to the end but I just couldn't and even left the room.
I was thinking with some really well known names it would be a better movie but unfortunately the story and the animation left a lot to be desired. I did notice that some of the dogs looked suspiciously like the person doing the voice but I suppose that happens when you know the face behind the voice.
Only thing I can give a good score to is the age appropriateness as the kids did watch the movie without moving around and didn't want to miss any of it but I found it totally boring and the story just did not hold my attention or interest for very long.
Sometimes my father in law will drop round with a range of random items and a couple of months ago it was a couple dozen DVD's and All Dogs go to Heaven 2 was one of them. I'm not sure if the kids had watched it already but I have been letting my friend pick and this was her choice tonight for movie night.
Charlie is living in heaven, though he feels that there is something missing from his new life, he gets joined by Itchy and before they know it they are back on Earth to retrieve Gabriel's horn (which can open any door etc. up). Of course there is a big, bad, evil cat (no second guessing as to just who it is representing) and Charlie discovers just what he has been missing, love and family. The characters are pretty two dimensional and there isn't anything particularly memorable about any of them.
The musical numbers are, sub par, I mean they fit the movie suitably but the villains song does nothing to inspire fear or loathing, the song that had Charlie fall for Sasha just didn't do anything at all for me, none of the songs did. The animation was ok, everything in this was pretty much just ok. The kids were all hooked on it, so they seemed to enjoy it, but I tuned out of it quite quickly and it isn't one I would sit down with the aim of watching again.
