MILD SPOILERS AHEAD Besides a few leaps of logic or coincidence (e.g., does technology work on the island or doesn't it?), the script for #2 is as clever, funny and exciting as the first one. However, we were lulled into a false sense of security about creepy, scary and spooky after the first film proved fine for our very sensitive 7-year-old. Still, he found the Thumb-Thumbs in #1 quite frightening, and this one goes to a higher level of creepy with skeletons that come alive, monsters of various lizardy and spidery stripes, and a bit more fisticuffs. Still, the filmmakers are careful to avoid truly shocking images or editing, so it's still OK for the young kids...just be aware they may want you in the room if they are very young or very sensitive to scariness.
