It’s Good To Be Bad
This movie series isn’t the best. But the way it ended made it so good. The ending was touching, the acting was solid for my taste, Cheyenne Jackson was a great Hades, it was nice to have Audrey back, and the tribute to Cameron Boyce was the best. The songs were the best of all three movies. This will be forever in my mind
Warning do not read unless seen movie.
Like all good fairy tales, they eventually come to an end. This really was an interesting fantasy franchise which is why I’m a little sad at seeing it go, but when you think about it what else were they going to do, as the entire cast was getting older unless they put them in Auradon University next and seeing them deal with collage life. But that’s will only happen in the realm of fanfiction, personally I’m fine with this coming to an end before rust settled in, thankful this turned out to be a good if not a great end.
The music numbers are fun as usual, two of the ones that are a good listen are Hades and Mal’s number that was a lot of fun seeing both singing and dancing together. Another was seeing a solo from Sofia Carlson/Evie “One Kiss” that one was a lot of fun putting on the moves while singing, she always has good moves.
But that sequence was also funny as by its nature it’s one big suspenseful delay as she is uncertain her kiss will be true love to awaken Doug, which is understandable as love can be scary sometimes as it holds the unknown aspect. Really like the look on Mal and Uma’s faces while Evie is singing it’s the same think we’re all thinking “Just do it already!”
I like some of the new editions, like Doctor Faustus’s granddaughter, she’s fun as she’s sort of a fortune teller but also just has this slick charisma.
Another of course is Hades, despite not in the film that long he was a lot of fun. I really like the look of him, which is the Billy Idol look, which is cool as I like Billy Idol. Really like his cool but also slightly devious dynamic. It was interesting though I wouldn’t say surprising as I actually saw it a mile away and probably right now it’s no big secret anymore, on Hades being Mal’s father which makes sense as both of them have the same fashion sense, are mischavious, let alone weld fire; so I guess you can say Mal is the princess/daughter of the underworld so that’s cool.
Really like how both Mal and him play off of each other as it’s a bit of a strained dynamic but also you see hints that deep done some of that is an act as both really do want some sort of connection with one another which makes it a bit sad because you realize how much time both have lost with each other. From a little more of what we discover about Hades you can’t help but wonder if he would have been a better parent for Mal than Maleficent.
But most importantly really like seeing all the characters again well except for Lonnie whom is sadly absent which is one weak point I’ll get to latter. Each of them is themselves and I like that we see they all have some good scenes and even more well rounded but also shows how much further they’ve came.
From Carlos played well Cameron Boyce whom is sadly no longer with us, this was literally the last film from him which sucks, same can be said about a lot of other actors that were gone too soon; but here he finished well.
The highlight was seeing both Carlos and Jane interacting with each other which was sweet, I like the mature sensibility about it as we see both have been in a relationship for a while, from that Cake he and rest were going to deliver to her Birthday party, which becomes a running joke as that Cake just keeps getting smaller. But we see the gift Carlos gives her which really signified the sweetness but is also funny as it sounds almost like a name for a candy.
Really like Jane in this film also, despite also not being in the film that much you really do get a sense of depth with her as we see from that Birthday party, she’s became more social and outgoing has more friends in her life. But also, her wits are sharp as we see her jump into the enchanted water to counter Audrey’s spell.
Mal and Ben are good as usual and it was interesting seeing how their relationship is taking the next step as we see Ben proposing. Some would argue their both still too young even though both actors are in their twenties. Both have good chemistry even though once again not a lot of scenes with the two together. Really liked seeing Ben in Beast mode, which was something I’ve been wanting to happen for a long while.
I really liked seeing both Uma and Mal gang work together to save Auradon from Audrey. Really like how we see slowly but surely both factions are slowly but surely putting their differences aside, form a bond, but see the good nature in Uma and her group. Like with Gill whom despite not the brightest bulb he has this innocence to him, like how he really enjoys the small things in Auradon like eating berries which further addresses the poverty issue on the Isle, and shows how we should be grateful for what we have and take for granted.
But also seeing how he has some big dreams, mainly to sail on a ship and see the world. As well as seeing both Mal and Uma combining their magic in a situation or two which shows it’s truly better to make friends than enemies.
Of course, we have the main villain whom has been kept a mystery for a while even the trailers didn’t reveal anything on the villain which is a good thing and something I feel movies trailers need to do more of again. The main villain is of course Audrey, which really was no surprise to me, I had a feeling after what transpired from the first film this was a long time coming.
It’s true her character isn’t sympathetic or at least I didn’t feel sympathy for her but that’s that point, as we see she hasn’t changed one bit as she’s just as self-absorbed, vain, and prejudicial as before. Even a bit of a hypocrite and Primadonna when she yaks about certain things like, why she wasn’t invited to Jane’s party; well for one thing your not her friend and two you a jerk, wonder if that ever occurred in Audrey’s mind why she’s not well liked. We see that she soon is pushed to the edge and that attitude she holds is amplified from Maleficent’s wand she jacks, and we of course see her do some pretty bad things.
Now here are somethings about this sequel that really hold it back for me, which makes this my least favorite volume of the bunch. It really sucked that Lonnie wasn’t in this film as she is one of my favorite characters in the franchise, but due to the fact they couldn’t’ get the actress, it couldn’t be helped.
As I said the bromance Jay has in the film with Gill and Harry isn’t bad, but it’s just not the same, like a lot of fans I really wanted to see more back and forth between Lonnie and him which would’ve given depth as to how far things have gone between them, so, this I felt was one big lost opportunity.
Another problem is Audrey herself, don’t get me wrong she’s not a bad villainess but a little weak because most of the time she’s just fraking around instead of getting down to business. Which I always found so stupid, it’s sort of like that tired cliché that seriously needs to die where the good or bad guys sometimes have their opponent right where he or she wants them and does nothing; seriously the more they delay the more they practically hand out another opportunity to they opponent.
Or even go a little further with her character like steel some more objects in the museum which she had the grand opportunity to, like Mal’s spell book or better yet a Necronomicon which would have heighted Mal and Uma’s challenge. But also I feel Audrey character needed to be rounded out a little more she does come off a little two dimensional, we do get a little depth on her troubled mindset but not enough or maybe even show a little internal conflict to what she’s doing, but is so wrapped up in her own greed and vanity she is slowly losing her humanity.
The film isn’t really that exciting which is a weird thing to say but it’s true, because in the middle nothing really happens. Well ok, things to happen but it just feels a little too few far between. There should have been more sticky situations to intensify things more and the action in the film is a bit lame, it’s not bad but they could have been a lot better.
Like having a better final battle much like “Avengers: Endgame” and “A Better Tomorrow 2” where it all comes to a big payoff where we would see both Uma and Mal friends against some sort of demon or skeleton army Audrey summons up and we would see everyone fight. It would be a fitting send off as we see everyone is doing their part.
Like Jane and Carlos use some sort of combative technology, Evie use some spells and a sword and Doug with her also using a sword, Ben transforming into his beast form and ripping the evil army to shreds. And in the final minutes of the battle still have Mal in dragon mode but then have Audrey turn into a pink dragon and there would be an aerial battle between them. I know sounds extreme but why not, it is the final movie so have some fun while you can, but also shows why Mal and Uma and their friends are truly forces for good.
But the real problem I have is there is a serious balancing issue as most of the characters mainly all the supporting characters really didn’t have much of a hand in things, let alone in the film that much, which amounts to more lost opportunities.
Overall, despite being a mixed bag entry I did like the film, but as someone that really liked both the first and second film, I think it could’ve been better. Now it’s time for me to get real, farewell Descendants cast members Dove, Sofia, China, and all the rest of you, you really did make this fantasy world and it was an interesting journey with you guys but like all fairy tales sooner or latter they must come to an end, which is why I’ll miss you guys, so farewell.
