  • An enjoyably silly and self-aware sequel, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway should leave fans of the original feeling fairly hoppy.

    It's the human stars ... who truly shine. Domhnall Gleeson finds fun new ways to fall over. Rose Byrne delivers knowing lines.

    Can Will Gluck recapture this lightning in a bottle with Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway? No. But he sure does try.

    Uncharacteristically true to his word, Peter does less insufferable blathering this time around, but the subtitle The Runaway still threatens the audience with a better time.

    It's hard to escape the feeling that Will Gluck's follow-up to 2018's Peter Rabbit is straining to capture the fast-paced, meta whimsy of the original while also cramming in a whole bunch of new characters and themes.

    However, this could be the lovely piece of Springtime cinema you pop on every time the flowers bloom for those who are still a kid at heart.

    Cynical sequel - you know, for kids! - doubles down on the nihilistic money-grubbing of the original. Thinks that being clever and meta about its own disenchantment will win us over. It does not.
