Hangover 2 Movie
After ‘The Hangover’s tremendous success in both the departments of critics and box-office, director Todd Phillips along with the producers of the movie decided to make a sequel of the particular movie. But sadly Hangover 2 movie is nothing but a mere shadow of its predecessor. There is literally, nothing new in the movie which we have not seen in ‘The Hangover’. The movie starts with the introduction of the famous characters. Bradley Cooper’s charming and ‘staying cool’ act is repeated in the character Phil. The movie starts off well with the wolf pack going for another trip. The story revolves around the central characters and it is uncannily and unwittingly similar to the story of ‘The Hangover’ itself. For instance, Alan (Zach Galifianakis) is the reason behind the crisis again. Although, in this movie the missing friend is not Doug (Justin Bartha), the events which followed the disappearance of Teddy, Stu’s brother in law, is quite similar or same in comparison with the predecessor of this movie. The catastrophic events, portrayed by the director in the movie, ask for plaudits.
But still the movie like a reminiscent of the first part. The dialogues and the one-liners also lack the subtlety of the first part, though some of them are good. Performances of the lead actors are good and according to their reprising roles. Zach Galifianakis, once again as the idiotic and goofy Alan, is still lovable and he gives a nice performance. Similarly, Ed Helms as a ‘little more snobbish than he was previously’ dentist, named Stu Price, is good; Bradley Cooper plays the enigmatic and supercool Phil, the leader of the pack. He pulls the role off in a stylish manner. Overall the Hangover 2 movie is more like a tribute to its previous part than a sequel.
