Inspector Gadget 2


Get ready for more wild adventures packed with double the special effects, double the gadgets and double the fun of the original. It’s Disney’s all-new “Inspector Gadget 2.” Just when things are quieting down in Riverton, everything goes wrong. Inspector Gadget is put on probation. Claw stages a daring escape from prison and plots a new “Crime of the Century.” And the Mayor unveils a new and improved G2: an all-robot, all-tech, all-female gadget! Could it get any worse for our hero? Mishaps, miscues, stakeouts and showdowns ensue as Inspector Gadget and G2 set off to go-go save the world with a little help from their friends – niece Penny, her dog Brain and the wildly tricked-out Gadget mobile!

Dove Review

I enjoyed this movie more than the first one. French Stewart does a fine job in assuming the role of Inspector Gadget and the addition of Elaine Hendrix as G2 is a nice touch. With a romance for Gadget, it increases the electricity in his robotic life! Claw is a good villain and the movie is definitely fast-paced. There is a lot of physical humor in the film and comic-book type violence. One scene which concerned me is Gadget putting a pencil to his ear to sharpen it. This scene should be mentioned by parents to their kids as a warning not to copy the behavior.

Dove approves “Inspector Gadget 2” for all ages.
