Paddington 2, Novo Cinema – Review
The outstanding sequel is a delightful tale of generosity, kindness and nonstop adventure…
Paddington Bear returns to the screen in Dubai on 30th November 2017, with the remarkable sequel full of the same allure as before which guarantees to mesmerize the audience regardless of the age and just in time for the festive season.
Based on the nostalgic children’s books of the late Michael Bond, the follow-up to the timeless original sees the charming bear Paddington continue to spread joy and marmalade on his quest to earn money to buy a beautiful handmade pop-up book for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s birthday. However with a twist of fate and unfortunate event the endearingly sweet bear finds himself defenseless amid charges of theft. In an effort to clear his name, Paddington sets off to a journey full of adventure, laughter, and friendship.
Written and directed by Paul King and an all-star British ensemble cast including Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins and Julie Walters, Paddington 2 exudes the charm of a light-hearted movie that is seldom seen on the silver screen. A refreshingly funny Hugh Grant impresses with his rather peculiar character full of innumerable wardrobe changes and comedic vaudeville. What has been even more fascinating is the fact that the movie which targets a younger crowd quite successfully marches on towards the end without a single hint to the modern technology especially cellphones and leave a perennial message on the importance of generosity, faith and the value of good manners in times like these.
Full of funny gags, marmalade making, curious adventure, and the ultimate bond of family and friendship, Paddington 2 is an engaging movie experience for both the young and the older audience. In time for the festive season, Paddington 2 provides excellent entertainment for the whole family, especially at the newly revamped Novo Cinema- Dubai Festival City. With comfortable seats positioned for perfect viewing at the Novo cinema, the Festival City mall is also celebrating Christmas with the lovely Paddington World and a plethora of other Paddington themed shopping options throughout the mall.
