Care Bears Movie II: New Generation Reviews

Care Bears Movie II: New Generation

The Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins save the Kingdom of Caring from evil when Dark Heart bargains with a little girl to destroy goodness.
Genre: Children’s Video
Rating: G
Release Date: 8-APR-2003
Media Type: DVDWhen you’re stuck at summer camp with no adult counselor in sight and a fiery, bellowing hurricane named Dark Heart threatens to unleash a storm of evil, it’s time to reach for the nearest teddy bear. In the case of Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation, three forlorn campers enlist a whole rainbow of singing, animated bears–and Care Bear Cousins–to learn that making friends and sharing feelings are skills that define true Camp Champs. Another visual candy dish based on that lucrative pack of American Greeting Cards characters (introduced in the 1980s), this 90-minute film extends many warm, positive messages about caring and sharing. But it suffers from a thick coating of sugary dialogue (“If you have ever cared, care now!”), gooey songs, and exhausting action.

List Price: $ 9.95

    A great movie for kids, April 26, 2000

    I just wanted to say that I think this is one of the best Care Bear movies ever made, if not the best. In this movie, people find out that when they were cubs, the Care Bears were taken care of a bear named True Heart, and a horse named Noble Heart. Unfortunately, it was never revealed who the Care Bear’s parents were, but if someone decides to make a third Care Bear movie, they might reveal it in the third movie. In the movie, a girl named Christy makes a deal with a shape-shifting creature named Dark Heart. Dark Heart gives Christy athletic skill in exchange for one thing; she has to help him capture the Care Bears and their cousins. In this movie, Dark Heart and Christy both learn a valuable lesson. Dark Heart learns that even someone as evil as he is is capable of caring for someone. Christy learns that you don’t need enhanced athletic skills to be special. With cute songs, pretty good animation, comedy, and of course, lots of caring, Care Bears Movie II is a movie everyone can enjoy.

    A Classic ’80’s Toon!, February 27, 2002

    I had been searching for this film in local stores for a long time and finally found it the other day and bought it! It’s still great after all these years! However, I still fail to understand how Dark Heart could almost drown?!!! I mean, he was a sea serpent at the beginning, and his true form seems to be a cloud of evil. But who cares, this is pure ’80’s sugar and great fun! If you loved the first one, you’ll probably love this one just as much.
    Three kids at a summer camp are tired of being last in everything. Two of the kids get a visit from the Care Bears, while the third gets a visit from Dark Heart, making a deal to be Camp Champ, but in exchange for what? Classic good vs. Evil. Could Dark Heart be the Devil? The film shows the babyhood of the Care Bears and Care Bear cousins, and seems to cancel out some of the facts from the original movie. In the original, the Bears seemed to be meeting the Cousins for the first time, but in this sequel…er…prequel, they were babies together. And in this second film we see the original Care Bear and Care Bear Cousin, True Heart and Noble Heart who are both mysteriously absent from the original film. Oh well, maybe this is the Care Bears in a parallel dimension. If you watch the films seperately it’s fine, but one after the other might confuse you.
    Care Bears Movie 2 has a strange narrator by the way. A huge star. No, not a movie star, and not the sun, just a huge star who guides the first Care Bear and Care Bear Cousin, along with the Cubs, to a Care A Lot type place (before they split the cubs up, sending half to Care A Lot and half to the Forrest of Feelings). Who knows where they came from though. The opening is much like the opening to Santa Claus, the Movie, where they are shown their new home, and are led into a new life of watching over the children of the world, making sure they all “care.” It’s all kinda New Agey now that I think about it, but very cute and great for boosting toy sales. A highlight for me was always the fact that Tenderheart’s voice was noneother than whoever it was that voiced Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. This sequel, or prequel I guess, is not quite as good as the original, but almost, and just as entertaining. The villain is not as scary, but pretty darn evil and does some really devil-like, in personality that is, not necessarily appearance. Like the first, this film teaches some great lessons and is pure sweetness and fun. It’s great for anyone like me, a 26 year old, straight, male, cartoon lover who enjoys flashbacks to his childhood, or just the average kid who needs something to watch and likes cartoons!

    Weather Freak “Mama” (Michigan United States) –

    I am 25 years old, and I’ve never stopped loving this movie! I never owned it as a kid, but my cousins loaned it to me and my sisters (we finally gave it back after a couple of years), and now that I have an 18-month old daughter of my own, I want her to get to know the magic of this awesome movie, too! The Care Bears are so cool (everything I wished I could be), and I love how their powers come from their love for everyone. The Care Bears are so contagious, even Dark Heart couldn’t resist anymore! All of the songs are so cute, and I still remember all the words (in fact, I still have my audio cassette soundtrack). The song “Forever Young” is my favorite. This movie will never get old, and either will the Care Bears (I still sleep with my Bedtime Bear!). Okay, that was probably more than you wanted to know. Anyway, you have to get this movie. For your kids, for yourself. If you’re looking for a video that is chock-full of values, love, caring, acceptance, and forgiveness (which, unfortunately, is kinda rare these days), then you need to add this one to your video library.
