Paddington 2

British actor Ben Whishaw’s voiceover remains a nimble feat of wide-eyed wonder and perplexity, while Hugh Grant is, frankly, revelatory as the camp villain responsible for Paddington’s criminalisation. Brits Paul King and Simon Farnaby’s script is drenched in wit and whimsy, the CGI is astonishing and the high stakes plot will have you clawing the sofa. A sublime sequel.
