“A poorly made film telling a bad story that we’ve already seen told badly once before.” – Bob Chipman, The Escapist

“An awfully cute way to watch a menagerie of animals being adorable on screen.” – Deirdre Crimmins, HighDefDigest

“…  a fun entry for the younger set that may fall short of the original but manages to work on its own.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

CHASING THE DRAGON II: WILD WILD BUNCHCHASING DRAGON II

 

“The fact that CHASING THE DRAGON II doesn’t waste too much time on all the stuff we’ve already seen before kept me in the movie.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
