The Smurfs 2 - Movie Review: A Fantasy Film For Smurfphiles

This season seems to be dedicated for kids. After Turbo and Zambezia, director Raja Gosnell's The Smurfs 2 is another rollicking roller-coaster hybrid-live action-cum-animated film. Based on the characters and works of Belgian comic artist Peyo, The Smurfs 2 is a sequel to the 2011 film The Smurfs. For the uninitiated, the Smurfs are blue, three apple-high friendly individuals who live in mushroom houses in Smurf Village, a fantasy land.

In this franchise, Gargamel the wizard is flourishing in Paris. But he is running out of his magical powers. So he creates a group of mischievous Smurf-replicas called the Naughties; Smurfette (voiceover by Katy Perry), Vexy (voiceover by Christina Ricci) and Hackus (voiceover by J.B. Smoove) to obtain the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. Apparently, this concoction would help Gargamel to rule the world.

Unfortunately for him, things don't work according to his plans. Smurfette, the cute blonde naughty, who he had sent to snoop and rob the Smurfs of their "Smurf-essence", is a changed individual as she "chooses to be a Smurf". So, he with the help of Vexy and Hackus kidnaps Smurfette from Smurf-land and imprisons her in Paris.

Laced with familial bonding, an adventurous flight around Paris and emotional blackmail what follows is the Smurfette-rescue operation. Papa Smurf (voiceover by Jonathan Winters) along with Smurfanity, Grouchy and Narcissi-murf (voiceover by George Lopez, Anton Yelchin and John Oliver respectively) traverse to Paris and in collaboration with their human friends - Patrick (Harris), Grace (Mays) Winslow and Victor (Brendon Gleeson), they rescue Smurfette.
