Hotel Transylvania 2 in 3D - Film Review

Took my daughter to see the sequel to 2012 film Hotel Transylvania.   The first film I watched for the first time a few days before seeing this and was very impressed and chuckled through the film.

So went to the cinema to see it in 3D as animations are usually good in 3D.  The 3D to this film was good and gave good atmosphere but not enough came out at you - nothing has topped Despicable Me 2 for this for me so far.

The story follows on from the first where Draculas daughter Mavis marries Johnny and becomes pregnant.   This is a very funny part of the film.  Soon we fast forward to see their half human/vampire son Dennis drown up and coming to his fifth birthday.   Dracula is worried he hasn't grown his fangs and shown his vampire side.
He sends Mavis and Johnny to his parents whilst he looks after Dennis and with the help of his friends including Frankenstein,  Wayne the Werewolf and the Invisible Man tries to get the Vampire side of Dennis out by taking him to a Vampire Bootcamp. 

With excellent voiceovers from the likes of Adam Sandler (Dracula), who also co-wrote the movie and Selena Gomez as Mavis and Steve Buscemi as Wayne the Werewolf among others the film was entertaining and very funny in parts.  Me and my daughter laughed at quite a few bits.
The only problem some of the jokes were similar to the first movie or done in other movies.

Overall  - great, funny film but bit too samey to the first one.   Also could have had more coming out of the screen.

Score  -   8/10
