Heitor Pereira is coming off the mega-success of the summer with Despicable Me 2. His second score of the year is a sequel to his other very successful work on The Smurfs with The Smurfs 2. Heitor did a very good job with the first film by creating a light whimsical score that was a pure joy to listen to. Much of that transports over here to the sequel, but we lose more of the structure and flow we had in his first score. The end result is a slightly choppy but very enjoyable 41-track - 47-minute score that has strokes of fun.

Heitor has a real talent for thematic material and breathing life into his work with an upbeat emotional touch. That is clearly evident here as we open the score with some variations on the classic Smurfs theme. The score then takes on an identity of it own while reflecting on the soundscape that Heitor built in the first film. A lot of the score is bursts of flourishing melodies that take on a bit of a cartoony feel. And when I say cartoony I don't mean it negatively. The music feels as if it hits every footstep of our little blue stars and in turn that creates a sort of "mickey-mousing" cartoonish feel. The wonderful orchestration does bring this score to life, and that's the real heart of this score. It has this fluttering life behind the music, and that makes it stand out.

The Smurfs 2 is a great showcase of the presicion of the orchestra in almost being an actor in the film. The music feels alive and has a very warm and likeable personality. You will definitely enjoy your time with Heitor Pereira's The Smurfs 2, but the short tracks do make it hard to find a natural flow to the score as a whole. The colorfully bright orchestration and Heitor's wonderful melodies shine through to make The Smurfs 2 an enjoyably light summer fare.
