All your favorite characters are back, and this time, facing a new unspeakable evil as the source of the exhibits lives becomes the key to an army of the undead from the Egyptian Kamunrah; putting him in charge of them. Many new faces appear in this film, as Larry Daley comes back from his small business success to save his friends who are being shipped to storage underneath the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. Out with the old, in with the new is not going to fly for the entrepreneur who puts back on the night guard costume and arms himself with the flashlight for another battle, this time to control the tablet's power for good, not evil. Kamunrah doesn't go quietly and has the help from a few of the most sinister exhibits to achieve his goal of world domination. The new characters are a treat and as Daley walks through the Smithsonian you can just tell the life of the exhibits he passes are going to be quite entertaining. Everything from a giant Squid to Oscar the grouch to his sidekick on this journey; Amelia Earhart. There are some scenes that actually put a friend of mine to sleep during the movie, some unnecessary scenes between Daley and Earhart that drag on; but noting that it can't be a complete trip of action and special effects sank into my mind and i accepted them for what they were. Seeing the first one would help you follow the story better, but is not required to have a good time while watching this movie.
