Review: Peter Rabbit 2


THE odds are stacked against Peter Rabbit (James Corden) in the hyperactive sequel to his 2018 "live-action" debut. No matter how hard the orphaned rabbit tries, he just can't seem to turn around his bad boy image. Since the label of mischief-maker is so hard to shake, the misunderstood adolescent figures he might as well prove his owners (Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson) right. Peter wanders off, alone, through the mean streets of London, where he stumbles upon a streetwise old-timer .

Tired of pilfering fruit from the local greengrocer, Barnabas (Lennie James) introduces Peter to a tried-and-true scam, in which they allow themselves to be captured by a pet store owner to raid the fridges of their adoptive families.

When Barnabas witnesses Peter's talent for tormenting human adults, he hatches an even more ambitious plan involving the local farmer's market.

Since the new operation requires significant manpower, Peter recruits not only Flopsy (Margot Robbie), Mopsy (Elizabeth Debicki), Cottontail (Aimee Horne) and cousin Benjamin, but the whole farmyard gang.

All of which remains relatively true to the spirit of Potter's books.
