Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)

Drac and the gang are back! This time round the hotel is open to humans and he has a grandchild to dote on. The animation directed by Genndy Tartakovsky takes the story further, but not the experience.

Part two of any film is tricky, and very few achieve a leap in the plot. The characters that we liked in the first film are present, though some of them are relegated to the background.

We have some additions to the voices, one of them being the beloved Megan Mullally (Karen from Will & Grace). Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg and Selena Gomez reprise their roles with the others. The tension in the plot is mild and culminates late, which is perhaps the weakness of the film.

Overall, a good animation with an average plot. Could have more punch. Didn’t resonate like the first.

2.5/5
