The freshness and adventure of the first film isn't as bold in this sequel, but there are still enough creative cultural references and beautiful animation to keep it interesting and entertaining. Still a definite win for Dreamworks and an above average animated entry into a soon to be classic franchise.

Myers is fantastic as the title character. He, and possibly Eddie Murphy as well, steal many of …
