In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the worlds greatest sorcerer. It`s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?

This season seems to be dedicated for kids. After `Turbo` and `Zambezia`, director Raja Gosnell`s `The Smurfs 2` is another rollicking roller-coaster hybrid-live action-cum-animated film. Based on the characters and works of Belgian comic artist Peyo, `The Smurfs 2` is a sequel to the 2011 film, `The Smurfs`. For the uninitiated, the Smurfs are blue, three apple-high friendly individuals who live in mushroom houses in Smurf Village, a fantasy land. ...Read full review
Like the earlier film in 2011, The Smurfs 2 is a harmless but far-from-delightful kiddies picture that appears to have a cash register where its heart ought to be. It`s formulaic and cutesy but never treads new ground, sticking closely to the template of the previous film that grossed $564 million dollars. The plot, once again, involves the little blue fellas venturing out into the ``real world`` to save their species from their lifelong nemesis, the evil wizard Gargamel. Hank Azaria, easily the best thing in the movie, returns to play the deliciously over-the-top cackling Gargamel, who dispatches his minions, Vexy and Hackus, to Smurf Village to kidnap Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) so he can extract her essence and rule the world. The adventure unfolds in Paris, where Gargamel is presenting his magic show at the Opera House, so Papa Smurf, accompanied by three other Smurfs, enlists the help of their human pal Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris), and together they head out to the French capital to rescue Smurfette. ...Read full review
The other day, my young neighbour dropped by and suggested I should review The Smurfs 2. `I think it will be really good,` she predicted sharing her drawing of Belgian artist Peyo`s famous blue creations for me. The little girl who turns seven next month is a huge Smurfette fan and previously accompanied me on Chhota Bheem. I guess she wanted me to take her for Smurfs as well and I probably would if it wasn`t a school day. While I can understand her enthusiasm, I don`t necessarily share it. Not for Raja Gosnell`s version anyway. The director`s insipid adaptation of the beloved comic strip and equally endearing cartoon series on TV, blends 3D animation with live action roping in a cast of reliable actors like Hank Azaria, Brendon Gleeson and Neil Patrick Harris but packs in zero imagination or novelty. ...Read full review
While the initial Smurfs flick was set in New York, this one takes a continental turn and shifts the scene to Paris, where the irrepressible Gargamel (a very eager Hank Azaria) needs something called `Smurf Essence`, which he uses as part of his magician`s act. So, he sends out one of his Naughties called Vexy ( Christina Ricci) to kidnap Smurfette ( Katy Perry, who fits the role pretty nicely) via an inter-dimensional portal he has opened. He believes that Smurfette is a key ingredient in his quest for world domination. The fact that Smurfette is herself feeling a little blue, so to speak, because the whole village has forgotten her birthday (or so she thinks) doesn`t help matters. ...Read full review
