    I can’t tell if my favorite scene was when the children’s cancer ward burns down while Ave Maria is playing and slow motion pigs and chimps are running around

    Or when Babe saves the life of a dog strangling gruesomely to his death while an angelic choir sings, establishing him as a Christ the redeemer figure within the narrative and becomes the animal messiah.

    I can't tell.

    Against the expectations of an extremely low IMDB score ( anything lower than a 6 really shouldn't be devoting any time to) I was astonished at how enjoyable it was. It's expertly made, the animal performances and effects are great, and there's a real subversive wit in the script and background details of the city. It seems to me this is a film that missed its target audience and was sorely misunderstood at the time, perhaps by those just expecting a light, carbon copy of the first film. It's darker, yes, and surreal, but what else would you expect from the director of the Mad Max films? If you like the strange fantasies of Jean Pierre Jeunet this is one to catch. 6 years 11 months ago

    Definitely not shit...I would go as far as saying it's one of the best sequels ever made. 9 years 2 months ago
