The Smurfs 2 has the usual story that you’d expect from a Smurfs storyline. The evil bad guy Gargamel has snatched the blonde Smurfette from her home in the Smurf village. The rest of the Smurfs crew take up the challenge in finding her and returning her to the village yet again.
The presentation in The Smurfs 2 is one of it’s redeeming assets. It features a hand drawn art style which took me back to my childhood as it represents the original art style of the show rather than the movies. Story is told through the use of cartoon still-frame images with an overlay of narrative. Whilst these do well to tell the story, i would’ve much preferred actual cut scenes. I also think that this would’ve been more appealing for children who can’t really read all that well.
