So the Team runs the game again, but things turn out hilariously differently. With a new mission and some new Player Characters, the action ramps up as everyone tries not to run out of lives before they can finish.
This is definitely a worthy sequel to the former movie. Beautiful scenery and spot on acting by everyone, plus a compelling story about friendship (without running it into the ground) keeps everything rolling onward. The CGI was occasionally a bit scruffy at times.
Watching Awkwafina channel Danny DeVito made my day.
I highly recommend this one; it does not disappoint. Kids should be OK with this, but there are a few naughty words. There is a scene right after the credits start to roll, but nothing after that.
Flytrap rating: 8/10
