Chinook to the Rescue Again

Chinook in Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti (2016)

Ryan Croft (John Paul Ruttan) and his sister Emma (Ella Ballentine) are heading up to the mine where their dad works by getting a lift on a small supply plane which is also transporting Chinook, the dog belonging to the CEO of the mining company. But engine trouble causes the plane to crash land and after the siblings do their best to make the injured pilot comfortable they, along with Chinook, set out to make it to the mine and get help. Meanwhile their parents with the help of a local set about trying to find their children who are braving the wilds of the Serengeti.

Writer and director Richard Boddington is like the man who made the first chair, he made a second similar to the first but changed things slightly. As such after giving us the children's adventure movie "Against the Wild" he takes the blueprint for the story, alters a few bits such as moving the story to Africa and making the children passengers with Chinook rather than its owners and gives us another movie. And as such like the second chair made was like the first so "Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti" is very similar to "Against the Wild".

What does that mean in terms of entertainment? Well again "Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti" is the sort of movie which might entertain young children who will enjoy the story of 2 kids and a dog on an adventure as they survive the Serengeti, getting the danger of dealing with big cats but the joy of feeding friendlier animals. And to be honest I am sure many will just enjoy the movie because of the good looking dog, Chinook. But for grown ups this movie is more likely to remind them of the adventure movies they saw when they were younger which they will remember as being better than this.

What this all boils down to is that "Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti" is not only very similar to the first movie but pretty much on par with it. That means that whilst it should keep young children entertained it may not do the same for adults.
