An average movie

I wasn’t really dying to see this flick but since my wife really loved the first installment, I thought we might as well watch it together. Well, they basically followed the same formula and if you didn’t like ‘Mamma Mia!’, you probably won’t like this flick either. For this new installment, they combined a sequel with a prequel which wasn’t really a bad idea but the end-result was not ‘The Godfather II’, that’s for sure. In fact, I really struggled to get into this flick and, for a while, I was thinking that the damned thing would turn out to be downright terrible. Eventually, as soon as Lily James was on screen, it finally started to become watchable. Indeed, it was a bold move to kill off Meryl Streep’s character since she was probably the major draw in the first movie but it actually paid off since Lily James really nailed it. Indeed, according to my wife, she was a pretty good singer but, as far as I was concerned, she really channelled the same energy displayed by Streep in the first movie and she was just really fun and charismatic. Unfortunately, she was pretty much the only thing that I enjoyed though. I mean, I have to admit that it was fun to see Cher showing up to play the grand-mother, even if she is in fact only a few years older than Meryl Streep. Anyway, to conclude, even though I didn’t care much for the damned thing, I have to admit that it was in fact a decent sequel and it is actually worth a look, at least, if you really enjoyed the first installment.
