Impressive
It's so much better then the first one! I had a really nice time to watch it with my wife, so funny. WELL DONE! Thank you! I'm sure that the most of the kids will love it. The animation looks great, and it's full of high quality visual effects. I would recommend it to everyone who likes Pixar or DreamWorks movies.

As good or better than the original
The Nut Job 2 is wonderful! With some movies, the sequel is never as good as the original, but with this movie, they are both awesome films. There is never a boring part or unnecessary scene. It keeps you wanting more and gets you really attached about the characters' lives. The background music really helps keep the story going and makes the chase scenes more suspenseful since there are no silent moments.

In the film, an accident happens and all the animals who are eating at the nut shop are forced to move back to the park. Unfortunately, Mayor Muldoon (Bobby Moynihan) has some nefarious plans to destroy the park. So, Surly (Will Arnett) and his friends have to find a way to work together to save the park.

One of the things I care for in both of The Nut Job films is the animation. I love how you can see every single hair on all the animals and how each one is different. Another thing that I love about this film is the music. That, you can thank Heitor Pereira for. The music goes with the lines and scenes so well, that it truly enhances the story. My favorite character is Buddy because, even though he never talks, he is always there for Surly and it's funny to see Buddy's expressions that make it seem as if he's talking. I also really like the backstory showing Surly and Buddy's friendship. Another thing I really like is Mr. Feng's (Jackie Chan) tail because it makes him more intimidating, which adds to his character. My favorite scene is when Andie (Katherine Heigl) starts singing about how the park is their home and they make a joke about how "no one can break into a spontaneous song." Go watch it and you'll see!

The two messages in this film are to work together, which this movie is all about, and that nothing comes easy. This message comes into place when the animals have to move back to the park and scrounge for food. I rate this film 5 out of 5 stars because of the extraordinary animation, plot and music. I recommend this film for ages 5 to 14 and parents and older siblings will enjoy it too.

Excellent
How can a movie so good have such low ratings??? People must be brainwashed... They do not appreciate quality. The movie is very funny and it is full of messages hidden behind the appearances... I pity the brainwashed people... WATCH THIS MOVIE, HAVE FUN AND KEEP AN OPEN MIND!!!

I was like everyone, the first movie was awful. But I decided to give the sequel a second chance and went to see it in theaters. And this what I think about the movie:
I thought the second one was going to be worse than the first one. But when I saw it in theaters, I was shocked. I was surprisingly impressed! The second one is 100% better than the first one. The directors did a lot of improvement on the second one, the animation is great, characters are likable, story is better and it was entertaining. I think this movie is worth to watch and people should forget about the first one. This might be the first time that the sequel is better than the first movie. I did a movie review on The Nut Job 2 on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8Fdl_pi2_E) I am proud of the directors for making the second one better, the animators did a great job with the animation and I can't wait for a third one. Families should go see this movie, trust me, you will enjoy it.

Angry, Violent, Not good for Kids, Revolting Jokes about eating puke
The Nut Job 2 starts out O.K. you think you are watching a normal animated movie with your kids, but it escalated quickly to excessive violence and property destruction. Revolting Jokes about eating puke.

Summery The nut shop explodes, An evil politician destroys the park. There is no progression of force just angry violence. The animals attack people who did not knowingly do them any harm. The animals burn the place to the ground. Over time the people rebuild the park. Do not let your kids watch this.

It plays more like a Marxist propaganda movie them a kids movie.

This flick will be hated by President Putin's 100 million or so Fifth Columnists . . .
. . . currently infesting our once-great USA Homeland, as NUT JOB 2's lead villain--"Mayor Muldoon"--talks, walks, and acts exactly like the despicable Red Commie White House Tool, Don Juan Rump. The mercenary mayor (clearly based upon Putin's Chief Money Launderer) is matched by an equally mercenary daughter, Heather Muldoon, that will put most viewers in mind of Iwanna "Buy Her Stuff" Rump. Putin's always been jealous of America's Natural Treasures, which is why he recently had his Administration announce through Rump and other Red Commie mouthpieces that the USA's National Monuments, Parks, Forests, Wildlife Refuges, and "Indian" Reservations are being gradually sold off to the highest bidder for oil drilling, coal mining, gas wells, lumber clear-cutting, as well as the killing off the last of the grizzly bears, buffalo, moose, elk, bald eagles, condor, and whooping cranes, and so forth, just as Mayor Muldoon bulldozes "Liberty Park" to create his squalid "Libertyland." Nut Job 2 even has a flashback scene to one of Putin's Superstorms, which are now attacking America like cars on a freight train, thanks to Vlad's vodka binge-drinking buddy, Rex "Exxon Valdez" Tillerson, whom Al Gore singled out during the 2000 Campaign as the one man most responsible for Global Warming. (Putin, of course, appointed Tillerson as U.S. Secretary of State--a few heartbeats away from the White House in the Official Line of Succession--after Mr. T lent his name to the Unnatural MegaHurricanes, such as Harvey, Irma, Jose, and the one shown in NUT JOB 2, collectively now referred to as T-Rex Storms!).

It May Be Better Then the First Movie But It's Still Not That Good..
I know I'm a little late to this but why did the Nut Nob need a sequel?, It's just pointless unless they are thinking of continuing the plot from the first movie then It that's okay, buuuuut nope they just have to go with save their home from an evil greedy mayor...

Okay let me just start off by saying that I wasn't looking forward to this movie, because I hated the first movie so much that's It one of the worst animated films I have ever seen, so I was ready to slam the sequel!.

BUT! for some reason It wasn't as bad as the first movie, the filmmakers improved the mistakes from the first movie, like removing Grayson (Voiced by Brendan Frasier), making the characters less hateful and more likable, but It's still not that good..

First off the plot, It's just your average plot with a group of animals have to save their Park after the Nut Shop explodes from the evil Mayor Muldoon (Voiced by Bobby Moynihan) who wants to replace with a amusement park, then there's a subplot that evolves precious (Voiced by Maya Rudolph) getting captured by the Mayor's daughter and meets another dog Frankie (Voiced by Bobby Cannavale) who he falls In love with, It just goes by the numbers that It become so bland and so predicable, I never really cared all that much about what going on because I knew what was going to happen, not the mention the movie wasn't all that funny but the climax was a little interesting and fun, but that's not saying much.

The animation has improved from the last movie seeing that was one of the few things I liked about the first movie, It does has some good character animation, visually looks colorful, It has energy and It's quite smooth, so I do like the animation in this movie but at the same time It's rather average looking, there's nothing new to It, but It's good at least.

The characters are more likable then the first movie, especially Surly who I do like but he's now just a wise cracker that makes jokes which some can go on longer then It should of, Andie Is okay unlike the first movie where I liked her the most, Buddy Is still good but only one problem Is why doesn't he speak?, near the firs Movie he spoke only one line and now he says nothing?, Is that all he says?, I will never know, the other characters are basically just themselves and don't do much, the new characters are basically the same except for Mr. Feng (Voiced by Jackie Chan) and the Mayor who actually are somewhat amusing and sometimes funny, but that's 'bout.

So that's my review of the Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature, It's just meh..., predictable plot, average but good animation and just okay characters, It's better then the first movie but that's not saying much, children will like It and grown ups will think It's fine, but It's not that good.

I'll give the Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature a 4/10.

We're all going to die!
The life of ease, with all the animals getting "lazy, spoiled, and fat" comes to an end. The mayor has decided the park should be an amusement park, depriving our critters from their home. Our anarchist animals fight back. There are lessons about working together, friendship, and not spontaneously singing.

Jackie Chan voices a martial arts mouse whose hands are "weapons of mouse destruction" Yes, it was that type of humor. Fun for adults too. Chan had a line that made me think of the Niemöller quote.

Meh - At Least It's Short
It is strange that Nut Job 2's largest problems pile up so high that they inadvertently become its biggest asset? The movie is clunky, thematically dubious and stiflingly unfunny but it comes at you at such a constant pace that its hour and a half run time feels like a Band-Aid is being unceremoniously ripped off. It's a bad flick, that's for sure, but considering the taste of The Emoji Movie is still corroding in my mouth, The Nut Job 2 does feel like a bit of a palette cleanser.

The film follows our posse of park dwelling critters just after their success in the first film made them the sole owners of a corner nut shop. After a sudden explosion leaves them without a food supply, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) the abrasive leader of the group tries other get-fat-quick schemes to avoid going back to scrounging for nuts in the park. Scrounging however may not be an option either. While Surly tries and fails to gather food for the group, the city Mayor (Moynihan) hatches plans for a new development at the park, taking away what little the animals have left.

Nutty by Nature doesn't solve the myriad of problems from the first movie and instead makes them worse. Surly is still a selfish, proud, small-minded, ungrateful lead that never really learns anything substantial or gets his just desserts (aside from pratfalling on a couple of mailboxes). The way he goes about solving problems and honoring his posse's undying loyalty feels almost Angry Bird (2016) level in the way it inverts positive messaging and insults its audience.

The largest victim of Surly's machinations is fellow squirrel Andie (Heigl), whose maxims of "Hard work always pays off," and "There are no shortcuts," comes across as a nagging mother telling you to eat your vegetables. Surly proves not just dismissive but openly hostile to her concerns and she never gets an "I told you so moment" to offset his vitriol. Rather the movie sidesteps Andie and anyone with an actual worthwhile point to concentrate on zany hijinks and the dubious motives of our supposed heroes and villains.

For what it's worth the villains of this mess are objectively worse than its heroes. The Mayor is greedier and infinitely more self-serving than Surly is. He's also so broadly drawn and obnoxious, audiences liable to think the character was created by a six-year-old tasked with making a new Captain Planet (1990-1996) villain. Then there's the Mayor's petulant daughter (Moner) who is basically Darla from Finding Nemo (2003) with a fetish for animal cruelty. At one point a character says, "So this is what they mean when they say 'there were warning signs'." It's funny because it's true.

There are other small smidgens of this movie worth a chuckle, including the late addition of Jackie Chan to the cast, but there's nothing really substantial enough to warrant a watch. If you're really so inclined to watch this movie with your kids, try going out to the park instead. Your kids will probably get the same uncomfortable feeling of adrenaline and nausea from spinning in circles real fast. Just don't lap up the remains afterwards.
