Love is in the air in this sequel to the underrated "Brother Bear." Joaquin Phoenix' role as Kenai has been gamely taken over by Patrick Dempsey. Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas reprise their roles of Rutt and Tuke, the moose brothers. Jeremy Suarez also returns as Koda and Michael Clarke Duncan makes a brief appearance as his character, Tug, from the original film. Joining the cast in new roles are Mandy Moore as Nita, Wendie Malick as Aunt Siqiniq and the hilarious Wanda Sykes as wise-cracking and wisdom-filled, Innoko.
Kenai and Koda have been together for a long time, and their brotherly love is strong. However, when one of Kenai's old (and human) playmates attempts to marry, she finds out that she must destroy an amulet that Kenai gave her a long time ago. The problem is that she must burn it at the Equinox AND have Kenai accompany her. Granted the ability to speak to animals in order to find Kenai, Nita sets out on her quest. Once she finds Kenai, old flames begin to fan. Along the way, Rutt and Tuke take a few notes in wooing the fairer sex (in this case, moosettes) from both Kenai and Nita. Koda begins to feel left out as Kenai and Nita become closer. In the end (and in typical Disney fashion), the tale closes with all parties being happy. I won't give away any more info than that.
As far as the production goes, "Brother Bear 2" appears to have received a lot more attention than most direct-to-dvd sequels.Read more ›
The only extras here are a documentary on the music by Melissa Etheridge. I would have like to see a behind the microphone documentary and see interviews with the voice actors instead. However, the producers and directors believe the music drove the creation of the story and the music came early in the making of the film. Often music is done last, but not here. Here music was done during the early storyboarding, so the plot was in fact directed by the music.
At any rate, a very good film, worth seeing many times, and a pity it went straight to video..
The animation is not quite as good as the original but a noble effort nonetheless, and the songs by Melissa Etheridge though not as memorable as the songs of Phil Collins from Brother Bear, are extremely powerful as is the score. The humor of our favorite moose Rut and Tuke isn't as funny as the first film, but it still wouldn't be a Brother Bear film without them. Also, Rut, Tuke and Koda are voice by the original cast but the original voice of Kenai has been replaced. Still, not a problem. The strongest point as it should be is the story itself- as equally powerful as Brother Bear so prepare for yourself for tears, and also as with the original, the big choice of the film though seeming difficult to make, is made in the only way it should have been and was always meant to be.
Special features on the DVD include a behind-the-scenes featurette for the music of Brother Bear 2. And as I said before, the Brother Bear 2 songs aren't as memorable as those of Phil Collins, but they are of an extremely high quality, and I'm glad they're celebrated it.Read more ›
