Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2

Animation, Comedy, Family

Dracula and his friends try to bring out the monster in his half human, half vampire grandson in order to keep Mavis from leaving the hotel.

The critical consensus

Director Genndy Tartakovsky’s second stay at Dracula’s lavish resort fails to live up to the first, with a predictable sequel unlikely to excite even the most dazzled kids.

What follows is mostly fast-paced and fun, with the occasional choice gags skewering modern parenting techniques and supplying more smiles than expected.

Sequel to the successful animation is suitably silly and a marginal improvement.

***(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 12/10/2015

Co-written by Sandler, this is staple, family-oriented cinema fare arriving just in time for Halloween.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 15/10/2015

Hotel Transylvania 2 just isn’t as much fun as the original even with a cameo from Mel Brooks as Dracula’s grumpy dad Vlad.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 16/10/2015

The animation isn’t groundbreaking and the use of 3D feels tokenistic, but vampire movies don’t come more genial and likeable.

Adam Sandler and Mel Brooks provide routine pre-Halloween spooky chuckles in this animation sequel.
