Zoolander 2 Movie Review

Review by: dancingonrain.



This movie begins by following ex-models Derek Zoolander and Hansel’s downward spirals after the conclusion of the first movie.  They are old news to the world, but they eventually find themselves in the spotlight again.  When Zoolander’s son is kidnaped, he, Hansel, and a new character, Valentina Valencia, team up to get him back and uncover the mystery of who is killing famous popstars.

I’m not entirely sure why there was a sequel made since I didn’t think the first one was amazing, but if you enjoyed the original, you’ll probably like this one as well.

Like the first movie, this one was a little over the top and you may need to watch the first movie again in order to understand certain scenes in this movie, but the audience is shown refreshers of past events in case s/he choose not to rewatch the first movie.

Overall, I felt this movie was weird and awkward.  I know it was on purpose and a lot of the ha-ha scenes were in the movie trailer.  Like I mentioned before, if you liked the first movie, you’ll probably like this one too.  While it did have its funny moments, it was also pretty predictable.
