3.5 A bit disappointed w/this sequel. The car stunt was boring the first time, and then they kept doing it, and some of the jokes were pretty stupid. I still love all of these characters and the actors who play them, tho :-)
La primera vez fue una sorpresa pero la segunda es una confirmación: Dumont es un rey de la comedia. Sin renunciar a su ascetismo visual, vuelve a entregar una distorsionada forma de ciencia ficción slapstick, en el que tan solo unos pocos grados separan a este relato de lo que bien podría ser visto como una tragedia. El final es de otro planeta, un retrato del fin de un mundo que hace tiempo ha perdido su gracia.
Many people scream of the apocalypse as the end of the world, while in fact they only think about the end of THEIR world, their way of life. But other worlds and civilizations will grow out of the remnants of past realities; life is a great, big carnival. It may not as flat-out funny as Dumont's previous comedies, but it's something else.
