ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, first of the bat I might as well say not quite as good as the first movie. Just saying. But still not as bad as some have said. Jaime Kennedy does a great job as Tim Avery and the Mask. In fact the whole cast does a great job. The story works and it there are plenty of laughs to go around. Now I could have done with the rap version of "can't take my eyes off of you." But that is basically a minor complaint compared to the whole of the movie. 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree, but the rap did bug me more then it did ZEDD, but one rap song in a movie can be tolerated and still get a passing grade. The effects is incredible and as Zedd said the cast does a great job. A enjoyable movie for the whole family. 7 STARS
