Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back
Unspeakably bad digimation sequel which comprises a total vacuum of charm, energy, surprise and coherence and only barely delivers on the promises of its title (only one chimp actually goes into space and Zartog's attempt at 'striking back' is utterly feeble). Everything about the film gives you the sense that its makers had one eye on the clock so they wouldn’t miss happy hour: the barren, blocky backdrops look like they’ve only been partially rendered; the body movements of the chimps seem to bear no physical relation to the space they inhabit; the faces (specifically the lip movements) are so poorly animated that it constantly looks like the sound is out of sync; single jokes are stretched to breaking point – one in which we realise that a crew of human technicians can’t grasp the language of the evil alien Zartog is repeated four of five times; even the story feels like it’s been mangled together from a series of test shots and stand alone sketches. And for those with itchy trigger fingers when it comes to 3D, it’s barely even noticeable here.

I was not looking for a good plot, I was looking for something funny, and some more Ham hitting on Luna. I got that. If you want a good animated movie that is balanced, well-written, and entertaining, watch DreamWorks movies. I loved this movie.

It's all you've read so far and worse, everything about this utterly calamitous film is just pure garbage! I originally went to see this film as a joke with some of my friends, but the joke soon faded within the first 5 minutes of sitting through the torture they call "Space Chimps." I actually felt myself falling asleep during this film and it took nearly everything I had to give the film the tiniest drop of respect I had left for it to watch it until the end, hoping it would get better, but alas it didn't, everything about this tragic collection of dire imagery and out of time sound was awful, the jokes were overused and widely reused from the first movie and the collection of poorly drawn characters and landscapes both dramatically destroyed any enjoyment that I never had for this film. If you have a choice between this movie and prison, I'd chose prison, at least there you won't be tortured with the disgusting and appaling dramatics that this stupid film sat us all through for the worst couple of hours of our lives!


My god.... this film is so bad. I caught my finger in the fridge door last night and thought I had taken the end off it or broken the bone. The pain was overwhelming, but that had nothing on the pain of sitting through Space Chimps 2. My wife was in shorter excruciating pain giving birth to our first child. Space Chimps 2 makes you twist in agony watching it, like Alex in a clockwork orange pinned down his eyelids pulled open as he moans at the terror. Please make the nightmare stop...


Took my son to this dire film for his birthday party and ended up apologising to him and his friend. No plot, rubbish animation, a 5 minute trailer stretched out to 85 mins. It felt like 5hrs.
