Inspector Gadget 2

Go Go Go Gadget....REVIEW!!!

There's a lot things I could say about this film, but I'll try to remain brief by least they make it closer to how the cartoon was. This sequel is basically about our bumbling high tech detective, Inspector Gadget (French Stewart), on another case to prevent Claw from stealing a priceless diamond. Of course, this time around his niece Penny solves this case while Gadget fraternizes with G2 (Elaine Hendrix), and makes a total fool out of himself in the process. The special effects for this movie stink as well as the plot as it lacks any kind of originality or effort. However, I will give this movie one thing, unlike it's prequel, at least they stick closer to the cartoon this time. They casted actors that actually act like the characters such as French Stewart, Penny still solves his cases for him, and Claw finally never shows his face. Unfortunately, this also makes it very campy as well. As they make it obliviously obvious that Penny solves Gadget's cases and everyone knows it in the movie. Which call me crazy, but I remember in the cartoon, that Penny did solve his cases, but Gadget and everyone never knew about it. Oh well, what do I care, as this director didn't seem to either. Overall, it's a poor effort of a film but at least they try harder than the prequel to get it right.

Yeah, I agree with you completely there. I think the problem is that hollywood thinks that ANY cartoon can be converted into a live action film easily. However, if they actually researched or at least WATCHED the show, they'd realize that's not really the case. As there are some cartoons that don't translate well onto a live action format.
