One of my all time favorites.
It is a performances centric movie
This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.
May be spoilers Wow. People have no idea how to enjoy classic Disney for what it is. This has all the hallmarks of a feel good, mostly great acted, stunningly choreographed Disney film that is based on beloved characters. The costumes are based on them and supposed to look that way, and it's supposed to be charmingly cheesy. It's based on Cartoons and childhood stories.) It's also not a drama, and it was leaps and bounds above the first one. Yes, the dragon was annoyingly fake, and there were places where it was slow, but there were so many good song and dance sequences. I still can't believe they pulled off dancing on a water stage. It has the feel of a live WDW stage production.
Descendants 2 was amazing! Better then the first movie! Yes, it's a kids movie so why people are hating on it? Don't know! Sure, there isn't as much action as we'd like, but there is more action then the first movie! And, people got to remember; this is a kids movie; so it can't really bring it's full potential like people want. However; the music, the acting, and the plot line overall was really well done and with the way the movie ended, there's no doubt we'll be getting a Descendants 3 soon! Way to go Disney! Keep it up with this series; there's defiantly something magical about this tail :)
I love it was a great squeal to a great movie it was fast passed it never got boring the choreography was amazing the final scene of them dancing in the water was so beautiful and singing and rapping was amazing loved every song the cast has amazing voices and the sets and outfits were so detailed and unique the acting was great they were so good at portraying emotion and the visual effects were good except for the fireworks.
Contains mild spoilers....I wanted to say that I love this movie series and the animated shorts that partner with it. This movie was awesome, though I will say it had a couple low points for me, one of them being the final "battle" between Uma and Mal. The CGI wasn't where it should have been but the the ending number was pretty good. Another low for me was anything with Chad, out of all the characters ever done as a part of this series, Chad was the one character that no matter what I could do without. He should've been on the trip with Audrey, who wasn't in this movie. I also wanted to say that I know a lot of people have left bad reviews and I think that it's worth giving a chance. It is not like a lot of the other DCOM movies, which I have to say have gone downhill over the years, but this is one series that stands out and brings the imagination of DCOM movies of old. 😊 Two musical numbers stand out the most and have gotten stuck in my head in the past week and those are "ways to be wicked" and "what's my name?" I can't even explain how happy I was when Mal went back to all purple for her hair color. That's one thing that I love about the hair and make-up in these movies, they aren't afraid to have their characters having unnatural hair colors. I know blonde is the color that Dove Cameron has on a regular basis but the purple is much more wicked. Not to mention, Uma's hair was amazing. New character Dizzy brought a creative streak to the film that started with Evie but Dizzy is a force to be reckoned with. Lanie is awesome!!! She is so much like her mother in this movie, for those of you who don't know, her mother's Mulan. I loved her in the first movie and wished she had more screen time and in this movie that wish came true. The way she tries to make it into the team and struggles against the sexist views of a few....mainly Chad... And how she joins in the pirate fight was awesome. Her mother taught her well. I am so glad this movie came out the way it did, except for a couple things, and I hope that they continue the series. Though with the closing line of Uma there's a good chance they will, or at least plan to.
