We got Kevin James starring again as Paul Blart in the sequel of the 2009 Movie Mall Cop. While with Kevin James and Nick Bakay the writers are the same in both movies the director in Mall Cop 2 is Andy Fickman (You Again). Raini Rodriguez is back as Blarts daughter and as well Gary Valentine (in a different role this time). It as well stars Eduardo Verástegui, Daniela Alonso and Neal McDonough who was brilliant as Villain.
The Plot in short: After six years of keeping our malls safe, Paul Blart has earned a well-deserved vacation. He heads to Vegas with his teenage daughter before she heads off to college. But safety never takes a holiday and when duty calls, Blart answers.
I was not a huge fan of the first part of Paul Blart :Mall Cop. Luckily the second part is better in my opinion. While the story is not far away from each other the location is. This time in Las Vegas instead of a Mall in Jersey the whole Movie is a bit more on Big City level. While this is not the greatest movie Kevin James has done it does entertain and give you plenty of laughs. A little bit of Die Hard mixed with a bit of 96hours and some gags, that is basically what you get here. Straight forward easy predictable action comedy in which as well a part of serious topics like kids growing up and leaving the parents safe home, are shortly put in scene.
If you liked Mall Cop and The Grown Ups than you will as well have fun with this movie. If you are a die hard fan of The King of Queens you might walk out the theater a bit disappointed. For me it is not the greatest movie on earth, but it does what it promises, it entertains you and gives you a good time out with quite some laughs.
Verdict: We had good fun watching Paul Blart : Mall Cop 2 and think it is a nice lean back and be entertained movie.
