Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian :: Movie Review

( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Larry’s museum friends are shipped off the Smithsonian. Can he find a way to bring them back? Find out in Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian.

It’s been a few years since Larry (Ben Stiller) left his job as the Night Guard at the Museum of Natural History. Now he’s fulfilling his dream of becoming a big-time businessman, inventing and marketing products like the glow-in-the-dark flashlights. Fortunately, he’s not too much of a big shot to visit his old friends—namely the museum’s exhibits that come to life at night.


Change Isn’t Always for the Best

But on one visit, Larry finds all of his friends boxed and ready to be shipped off to the storage archives inside the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. The Museum of Natural History is going digital, using interactive holograms of the former displays to teach kids about history. Larry is outraged. Somehow, he must stop the shipment. But come sunrise, Larry is too late.


Evil Wins the Battle, But Good Wins the War

Larry wastes no time getting to the Smithsonian and infiltrating the archives where his friends are stored away. But before he can begin his rescue mission, he runs into trouble. An evil Egyptian pharaoh named Kahmunrah has come to life and seeks the tablet—the object that brings the exhibits to life. He plans to unleash the Army of the Underworld and take over the world.


A Team Divided Cannot Stand

A fierce battle begins as Kahmunrah gathers the wickedest men in history as followers: Napoleon, Ivan the Terrible and Al Capone. But Larry isn’t alone. He has more than just the miniature cowboy Jedidiah (Owen Wilson) and the rest of his New York friends on his side. He has Amelia Earhart (the first female pilot), a band of Einstein bobbleheads and a massive statue of former president Abraham Lincoln. In battle, Larry learns that “a team divided cannot stand”—a lesson he takes to heart.


The Bottom Line

Heartwarming. Exhilarating. Straight forward. Battle of the Smithsonian is brilliant! The battle scenes are less chaotic and easier to follow than those in the first film. Although Larry has left his night guard position, he never forgets his friends.


Battle at the Smithsonian Rating: 5

I mean, you're forcing me to choose between two of my greatest loves: Harry Potter and Star Wars.  BUT... if I  had  to choose one **drum roll** I would have to say...Rogue One. *cringes away from angry mob of Potterheads* yeah, I know. Rogue One was really freaking sad and how could I not love the ever adorable Newt Scamander. I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult this choice was. But Rogue One's plot..and how well it connected with the prequels and the original trilogy-that was awesome, and thus it wins by a miniscule margin :P I will say that Fantastic Beasts is a much more light-hearted film and ergo a film I'd likely watch more, especially since Rogue One is right before A New Hope which would probably cause me to go on a Star Wars Movie binge. Not that Fantastic Beasts wouldn't cause me to go on a HP binge. I mean, given the choice between the two on TV I'd prob chose Fantastic Beasts but I still think Rogue One is the better made film, for lack of a better phrase. exactly mate.
