How Fans Reacted to the Film?
The fans were overwhelmed to learn about the film. When the movie was officially released in the theater, it got huge popularity among the audience. The fans were already excited to watch it. As the film has one of the best casts, it already got into the news.
One person wrote, “I think the first movie’s charm was also captured in this sequel. While some discrepancies are lacking in the continuity department, they’re not hard to look past to enjoy a light-hearted movie. While we remain with our original cast of characters, we are also introduced to some new ones such as Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) and KahMunRah (Hank Azaria). Both of these characters were nice additions to the eccentric cast of wax figurines from the Battle of the Smithsonian’s predecessor.”
Meanwhile, another said, “I enjoyed how seemingly the people involved with creating the concept for this movie remained creative, managing to bring new aspects for the Night at the Museum franchise that we haven’t seen before. A detail I don’t quite enjoy however is the (slight SPOILER) romance between Ben Stiller’s character Larry Daley and Amelia Earhart. It feels extremely unnecessary and inconsistent, often occurring abruptly and in situations that don’t warrant anything romantic. It was a bizarre addition to the storyline and one I could do without. However , I still believe this movie ultimately possesses charm and personality. With the addition of this sequel, we are still presented with a whimsical journey that is in part historically accurate and fun, and manages to take you along for one fantastical night at the museum.”
