You know it, eddie!
I completly agree with you, on All Dogs Go To Heaven 2
! Like you said, as far as sequels go, this one is actually not half bad. And honestly, its one of my favorite "non Disney" sequels.
Yes, music had a great impact on the film. Songs like the one you posted, and others such as, To Good To Be Bad
and Easy Street
to name a few, were what made me love this sequel so much!
Aside from music, the movie had a GREAT villain. -- Red --. I loved how he wore a fake desquise, than he turned into the huge devil cat! Boy, did he give me shivers when I was younger.
And of course, in my opinion, it out does the original in some
aspects. It felt more straight forward, and most notably, the ending. In the original, I hated that Charlie never actually said 'bye' to Itchy. I mean, sure it was kind of good to not bother him, but it still felt a little cheated. But in the sequel, they do say bye, and it just felt so right.
There's so much more, but you get the gist!
So... do I like it more than the original? No. Is it a great continuation? Yes.
