Genuinely funny scenes were interspersed with really dorky scenes. And some scenes were alarmingly violent. Even without any actual bloodshed, they scared the crap out of my kids. The effects and the stunts were cool and Ice particularly liked that MJ ended up soaked to the skin yet again. Worth watching, although not necessarily for the last "feature" I mentioned.
The best part was that Doc Oc was his comic book self. Other than that, the story wasn't great, the CGI was obvious but still good, and the setup for Yet Another Sequel was blatant. Still, not a bad movie. I won't be lining up for the next instalment but I'm sure I'll catch it at some point.Added 29 June 2005 at 2:25 PM
