Paddington 2 is every bit as enchanting as the first, perhaps even more so, but it feels arbitrary to pick a winner. The film is a pure delight, as sweet and sharp as, well, marmalade, really.
100
An exemplary sequel, the film retains the innocence and beguiling lack of cynicism of the first film, but moves on to explore other motifs
100
It’s a family adventure that’s the right sort of heartwarming, delivering real human emotion through the medium of a small bear.
90
Every bit as perfectly tuned, cruelty-free funny and kind-hearted as its predecessor, maybe even more so.

Paddington 2 is a sure-footed, sweet-natured family comedy which isn’t set at Christmas, but which glows with so much warmth and fun that it might well be a staple of festive television for years to come.
90
Paddington 2 is another near-pawfect family entertainment, honoring the cozy, can-do spirit of Bond’s stories while bringing them smoothly into a bustling, diverse 21st-century London — with space for some light anti-Brexit subtext to boot.
80
A feel good sequel only marmalade haters could resist.

CineVue
The first Paddington was a joyful and somewhat unexpected treat, and the sequel is no different.
80
The film is pitched with insouciant ease and a lightness of touch at both children and adults without any self-conscious shifts in irony or tone: it’s humour with the citrus tang of top-quality thick-cut marmalade.
80
Paddington was uncommonly charming and Paddington 2 is very nearly as good.
