I got the chance to catch the first sneak peak (in Malaysia) of the movie Night At The Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian and I love it.
If you love the previous Night At The Museum (2006), you will love this sequel too. Battle of the Smithsonian is double the size and double the fun!
Security guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) revisited his old workplace only to find some of his friends are ‘moving out’ to the Smithsonian Institute. He then had to infiltrate the institution to rescue Jedediah and that’s when the fun begins.
The Cast (Spoiler Alert)
Expect to see most of the old characters back in this movie and some new ones too, especially Amelia Earhart, played by the lovely Amy Adams who was the first lady ever to cross the Atlantic by plane and Kahmunrah, played by Hank Azaria who was the evil brother of Akhmenrah.
Battle of the Smithsonian also features a lot of other CGI characters which are really funny and cute. Expect to see The Thinker, Abe Lincoln, some gigantic octopus and cuddly flying cupids. I love the bogglehead Einsteins the most!
Overall, the movie is not just but good laugh. I actually learned about some thing on history. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Amy Adams, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria and the others did a good job bringing the best out of their characters. A movie which I highly recommend to watch.
I’m giving it an overall rating of 8/10.
