Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Ben Stiller is back with a sequel to his 2006 Box Office, “Night at the Museum“, which takes place in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. this time.

For those of you who loved the first one, this movie is as good, if not better. This is a perfect movie to take your young children if you have any, as the ones around me kept on getting all excited. Or if not, you can bring your parents. This is a great family movie with lots of fun.

Ben Stiller plays Larry Daley, a Museum night guard who lives unbelievable adventures at night at the Museum, as the statues, human pieces and animals suddenly come to life.

In this sequel, Larry finds out that some of his nocturnal friends from the American Museum of Natural History are to be moved and stored in the archives of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.  Once there, they are attacked by Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria), who is an ancient Great Pharaoh from Egypt.

They all battle for the “Tablet of Arkmenrah”, which can be used to open the gates of the underworld and unleash an army that could help Kahmunrah conquer the world.

Interesting characters abound. Kahmunrah hires Napoleon (Alain Chabat), Ivan the Terrible and Al Capone to help him open the Gate. On the other side, there is Abraham Lincoln,  Albert Einstein bobbleheads, Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila the Hun and many more.

Last but not least, there is also Amelia Earhart, the first woman pilot to cross the Atlantic, played by the beautiful Amy Adams. She rapidly falls in love with Larry.

This is a very fun comedy to watch. The dialogues are excellent, especially when the bad Pharaoh speaks. And the special effects make it look all too real. Sometimes the characters jump into a painting and the scene inside the painting becomes alive. Or in the scene in the National Air and Space Museum, Amelia flies an old double wing plane through the entire Museum. Fortunately, the capuchin monkey opens the door at the last second.

The message of the movie: it is fun to be a kid.

This is the time of Abraham, comically portrayed by Hank Azaria, who also recently played another hilarious role from Antiquity in Night at the Museum. [...]
