As any sequel should, Paddington 2 not only lives up to its predecessor but takes its plot and characters to new places. Paddington and the Brown family return along with a host of new characters, notably Hugh Grant's egotistical thespian Phoenix Buchanan and the fan favourite Knuckles McGinty played by Brendan Gleeson. The film, not only being a wonderful return to the slapstick comedy of the first film, also explores London, that fabled city which young cubs only dream of. Paddington 2 seems to capture the magical aire of London, through magnificent set design and fun heartwarming adventure. It fully lives up to the first installment and leaves you wanting more. How many sequels do that nowadays?
