Sing 2 (2021) Review

Buster Moon must attempted to persuade rockstar Clay Calloway to join his new show, or risk everything he has worked hard to put together.


I quite enjoyed the first Sing film and therefore thought the sequel would be a decent watch as well, I wasn’t expecting to actually find it better and it be emotionally invested in the story and really care about the characters in particular Meena who I was totally rooting for as she wants to experience love for the first time and that crush on the ice cream seller just totally hit me in all of the feels. This always leads me to wonder how the impact of how you currently feel has on watching a film, as it really has some hard hitting moments that you relate with.

While also wanting not only the show to be a success and Rosita to continue her amazing journey to being a star as well as a mother, we want to see Buster Moon come to something. Constantly being told that he is not good enough and having to prove himself is a very relatable yet tough storyline and its something that I personally have battled with and I am sure most people have at some point in their lives.

One of the biggest pluses for the film is the wide range of songs that is used throughout and in such good ways. The addition of Clay Calloway (voiced by Bono) was great to then add in some U2 especially given “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” which are two of my favourites. Not forgetting trying to get the ageing rockstar to sing again after pretty much being a recluse since his wife died.

While it might not be anywhere near perfect I felt it was very impressive for the amount of ways it went deep into different subject areas and pushed the emotional boundaries making so many things relatable for all different generations and the stages in your life where you go through so many different things!
