I thought Peter rabbit 2 was fantastic and definitely one of the rare sequels that improve on the original. The opening sequence was a lot of fun. The movie was absolutely hilarious and it made me laugh more than I thought it would. I liked the progression to the characters and the plot that was established. The CGI for the most part especially on the animals was better. I liked the added conflict and the expansion of the story world. The set designs were much larger in scope which I loved. The added conflict between all of the animals was good. The script and the humor were very self-aware. The comedic performances from Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne were great. Loved the new characters and separate storylines introduced leaving all the characters more time to develop. I also thought that there was good character development. The twist in the final act and the final act itself was great fun. I liked the two different villains which worked well. It had some great heartwarming moments. Great links between the human and animal storylines, as well as a satisfying ending.
However, it did have a few flaws. I found some of the conflict and the movie itself to be fairly predictable. There was slightly too much on-the-nose dialogue. The CGI was slightly off in a couple of scenes. And the movie had a slightly missed opportunity with not adding more depth and emotion to Peter and the human characters. But overall, Peter rabbit 2 despite having some flaws it couldn’t escape and missing the mark slightly with its lack of emotional beats it could have had. It is still a superior sequel to the first film. With a wider expansion. Introducing us to more great characters. It was just a better told and larger in scope story. That had me laughing out loud and smiling until the credits rolled.
