4.0 out of 5 stars Today it's Wheaties boxes. Tomorrow it's video games and action figures. The sky's the limit!
It happens very seldom that a sequel doesn't flop and disappear in comparison to its predecessor.

D2, however is one of the few that hold strong with the original Mighty Ducks film. Most of the young stars return in this film, and those who do not are replaced by much more interesting team members, including a bash brother and a hog-tying cowboy...

3.0 out of 5 stars "Ducks 2: Duck Soup"
The hockey purist could be offended at the on ice antics of "Team USA" as it takes on opponents in an international competition. From the new character "Cowboy," rope tying opponents to figure skater Ken Wu trying to get through the defense with a "triple axle," it is as far fetched as any youth sports movie has ever gotten. Estevez was...

This review is from: D2: The Mighty Ducks (DVD)
It happens very seldom that a sequel doesn't flop and disappear in comparison to its predecessor.

D2, however is one of the few that hold strong with the original Mighty Ducks film. Most of the young stars return in this film, and those who do not are replaced by much more interesting team members, including a bash brother and a hog-tying cowboy.

Emilio Estevez returns as hockey coach Gordon Bombay who's returned to the Ducks after an injury in the minor leagues which has prevented a future in the NHL, although he is quickly back on his feet when he is asked to be the coach for the USA team in the Goodwill games. With the infusion of a few new players, some exciting new drills and a lot of hard work the ducks are back in action and ready to kick some Iceland butt!

A little more silly then the first, but still packs in a lot of fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, May 20, 2002
By 
I thought that D2 was a good movie, although some of the parts seemed to be unrealistic, and some main characters from The Mighty Ducks were missing. I missed Hans, though I did really like his "replacement". One of the bigger missing characters, I thought, was Ms. Conway, Charlie's mother. I think that if you're going to introduce a sort-of-main character in the first movie, you should stick with it in the second.
In D2, the Ducks get accepted into the Goodwill Olymipic Games. They get some new players who they aren't getting along with to well in the beginning, but who they sort their differences out with. In the Olympics, they go up against teams from all over the world, but with none are they so competetive than with the favored-to-win team, Iceland.
The coach of the Iceland team is sort of like Coach Riley in D1, but is, I think, more extreme. Coach Bombay has kind of the same "screw up" that he had in D1, but another old man, who is filling Hans' place in his hockey store when the owner is absent, helps Bombay sort things out.
In the end of the movie, Iceland and the U.S are set up in the big final game. Who wins? Well, I can't tell, but it's a great ending.
Summing up, I think that D2 was better than D3, but not as good as The Mighty Ducks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Movie Ever, August 27, 2001
By 
D. Johnson "oasisgnr" (Rockford, IL United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
D2..The Mighty Ducks are back is the best movie ever. Emilio Estevez gives a performance that is Oscar worthy. His portrayal of the determined Gordon Bombay is nothing short of breath-taking. Emilio completely becomes Gordon Bombay in his most convincing role to date. Aside from Emilio, a young Joshua Jackon (aka Pacey from Dawson's Creek) shows glimpses of superstardom in his role as the young, caring Charlie Conway. When Charlie is willing to give up his role on the Ducks for the teams good, you WILL Have goosebumps. There is a little bit of Charlie Conway in each and every one of us. This movie also has loads of comedy. First off- The opening scene when they rollerblade through the Mall of America is..in a word..hilarious. Also- A young Kenan (of Nickelodeon fame) introduces the Knuckle Puck in this movie! The action and the laughs never stop in this movie which in a nutshell defined the 1990's and set the standard for all movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST OF THE MIGHTY DUCKS!, May 14, 2001
By 
Rebecca (Massachusetts, USA) - See all my reviews
I think D2: THE MIGHTY DUCKS is definitely the best film out of the whole series. I mean, the original and D3 were great, but this one is definitely #1! Bombay and the Ducks are back and this time, they have been asked to represent the USA hockey team for the Junior Winter/Summer Olympics held in L.A.! They also get some new teammates, as well, and they are all from different states in the country. At first, the Ducks and the new players can't seem to get along. But of course, soon they become fast friends.
When they get to the Olympics, they face their biggest rival team - last year's championship team from Iceland. They are tough, bigger, faster, and much more competive, especially their coach. The USA team does very well in the beginning, but then they loose to the Iceland team bad. Soon, all Coach Bombay cares about is winning - and the USA team can't stand that! So when they take a day off, they meet up with these street hockey kids who teach them how to really play hockey and what it really takes to be a team. And their spirits suddenly start to grow, especially after Coach Bombay apologizes to them for acting like such a jerk. Finally, it is the championships and they have to face Iceland once again. Do they win? Why, of course!
D2 is much more hilarious than the first, and the kids play more practical jokes and tricks. The hockey games are excellent, even though of course probably most of the hockey players you see on the ice are stunt doubles. Still, a great movie and a must see and a must have if you own and loved the first one! The Quack Attack is back and better than ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mighty Ducks....Reducks!, January 17, 2005
By 
This review is from: D2: The Mighty Ducks (DVD)
If you can chew gum while you skate or merely

like to see Scandinavians be defeated in

pseudo-Olympic competions that no longer exist

then you will love D2: The Might Ducks.

After a year of rest and working at Mall of

America, half of the Ducks come back to join

forces with a Magic School Bus-like cross-section

of interracial of hockey players and regional

stereotypes.

But even 28 year old Dean Portman and a large-eared

cowboy may not be enough to stop Team Iceland who,

basically, is allowed to cheat.

Even after picking up a black kid from inner city

Los Angeles, can a pre-pubescent racial melange possibly

defeat a eugenically perfected gene pool of aryan

giants?

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never mock skate

sharpening again!

So grab some of Han's egg meal and D2 today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly directed heartfelt film, January 20, 1999
By A Customer
This film, brilliantly directed by Sam Weisman (Film: Bye Bye Love, George of the Jungle; TV: Family Ties, Brooklyn Bridge), is a funny, entertaining and heartwarming story about those crazy cats you love to love, The Mighty Ducks. It follows them from small town competition in Minnesota, to big time hockey in Los Angeles, California. A must see for...well, I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRUELY GREAT, January 12, 1999
By A Customer
This movie is fantasic! I love The Mighty Ducks as well as champions and Mighty Ducks III. Even though this movie runs by the same storyline as the other two, quite predictably, they are all so full of team spirit, that by the end of the movie, all is well and happy, that is of course, only after having to face some challenges along the way! I would have to give it 3 thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Addition Of New Characters Vaults This One Past The Original, December 31, 2013
This review is from: D2: The Mighty Ducks (DVD)
The first "Mighty Ducks" movie captured the essence of "hockey humor". With the addition of some new characters, "D2" manages to outshine even its quack-tacular predecessor.

For a basic plot summary, this movie sees the Ducks reunite under Coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) as Team USA for the Junior Olympics. Besides the usual team leaders such as Charlie (Joshua Jackson) and Adam Banks (Vincent Larusso), newcomers like Julie "The Cat" Gaffney (Colombe Jacobsen), "Cowboy" Dewayne Robertson (Ty O'Neal), and Russ Tyler (Kenan Thompson), to name but a few, via for spots on the team. The team to beat in the tournament is Iceland, coached by big, bad Wolf "The Dentist" Stansson (Carsten Norgaard), who completely intimidates all-comers.

"D2" is better than the original because of the crazy new characters that inject new life into the precedings. The "old gang" is still as funny as ever, but every new character in this film is better than any of the originals (save maybe for Lester Averman (Matt Doherty)).

This movie pretty much follows along with the same themes as the first one, those being the "sacred nature of hockey" and "having fun over winning". For those who like sports movies or hockey in general, this one will have you laughing even louder than the first one.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Ducks 2: Duck Soup", December 27, 1999
By 
Kelly J. Sanner (Hattiesburg, MS., USA) - See all my reviews
The hockey purist could be offended at the on ice antics of "Team USA" as it takes on opponents in an international competition. From the new character "Cowboy," rope tying opponents to figure skater Ken Wu trying to get through the defense with a "triple axle," it is as far fetched as any youth sports movie has ever gotten. Estevez was clearly in this only for the money and if you notice "Team USA," supposedly the best teen players in the country, doesn't even skate that well!
The rivalry between Estevez and the Icelandic coach is believable and Disney including some inner city kids to develop the plot is admirable. The ending is enjoyable especially when a least likely character is allowed to shine. Kids, hockey fans or not, will love it and that is who the "Duck" series was designed for. As an adult you really better suspend your belief in this one. But then again, isn't that what movies are supposed to be about anyway?

5.0 out of 5 stars D2-The Mighty Ducks review from a m/d expert!!, August 15, 2002
By 
Sara ("We are Long Island, Long Island USA"--BLI) - See all my reviews
This movie was REALLY great! Although my favorite Mighty Ducks will always be D3..this one was still good. In the begining Coach Bombay comes back from his time away fro the ducks (where we left off in the last movie) and the "Quack Attack is back Jack"-(abermen to goldberg) but, this time, we lose a few characters, although they were not main ones. Now, The Mighty Ducks are invited to be team USA in the Jr. Goodwill Games but they have to add on some new teamates:: Julie, Kenny, Dwyane, Luis, and Portman. While in LA they meet another new member of the team Russel who joins when Adam gets injured..ok i'm giving to much away but to find out exactly what happens...WATCH It!!!
