The sequel to the 2017 French animation, The Jungle Bunch, is a lively but ultimately trivial adventure that takes the plucky defenders of the forest on a globe-trotting mission to face a new enemy. This time, they are up against a deranged beaver who has brainwashed an army of hench-beavers to aid in his goal of complete deforestation of the jungle.
The film is heavy on action set pieces but light on humor, with most of the jokes centered around toilet humor. This may not be the most suitable for the youngest audiences, especially given the inclusion of sappy interspecies relationship subplots. However, there are some moments that are heartwarming and give depth to the characters’ relationships.
Overall, The Jungle Bunch 2 lacks depth and substance, choosing to focus on action and slapstick humor rather than delivering a meaningful story. It is a forgettable installment in the series, with little to offer beyond its colorful animation and fast-paced action scenes. Despite this, it can still be an enjoyable viewing experience for those who enjoy mindless entertainment with plenty of visual appeal.
