What a fun movie! It's even better than the first one! Lots of switching back and forth from the past to the present to tell the story. It's a very sweet tribute to the unique love of a mother and daughter.
I was a little skeptical about this movie because the first Mama Mia set a pretty high standard. But, i honestly liked this one even better! They had nearly the entire original cast of the first movie and the new actors did a fantastic job. This story gives you insights into the original story and they do a beautiful job of blending the old with the new. The new actors are playing the old actors at younger ages. They not only do a good job of this, but they actually look much like the old actors, too. The music is fantastic, and of course, if you like ABBA then you can't go wrong here. The big surprise for me was when Cher sang "Fernando." She literally stole the show and did a phenomenal job of both singing and acting. If you enjoyed the original Mama Mia, then this is a "must see" movie. And, I highly recommend that you see it in 4K Ultra HD, if possible. Some of the scenery is breathtaking and 4K makes it the best it can be. Also, this is a musical and the audio of the 4K disc is definitely a cut above the norm.
Mamma Mia Here We Go Again turned out to be a charming and fun Summer movie. In some ways it was better than the the first Mamma Mia movie. It shifts between young Donna Sheridan's history (wonderfully played by Lilly James) and her daughter Sophie's current story. Most of the original cast is back as well as newcomers playing them as young adults. It all works very well. As for the picture quality, the Dolby Vision image is among the best that I've seen since 4K HDR movies began to be released. It's bright, with perfect colors and no overblown bright hightlights. The Atmos audio track is also very good. All in all, this is an excellent "jukebox" musical movie with an outstanding technical presentation. Highly recommended.
We have really enjoyed this Mama Mia sequel. Lilly James is amazing as the young Donna and Cher is made for her part as Sophie’s Grandmother. Both Mama Mia film have wonderful scenery and fun ABBA songs.
