The Care Bears live in a faraway place up in the clouds called Care-a-Lot. They travel around the world on Missions in Caring, whilst evil villains such as Professor Coldheart and Lord No Heart, try to thwart their plans.
In this second installment to the original Care Bear Movie trilogy of the 1980s, the Care Bear Family goes on their first Caring Mission--to stop the evil doings of a demon villain, named Dark Heart, from taking over a summer camp while making the Bears and Cousins vanish forever. In exchange for the Family's capture, he gives a camper named Christy the chance to succeed as the "Camp Champ" over her so-named rival. While starting the Kingdom of Caring, its founders (True Heart Bear and Noble Heart Horse) will stop at nothing to end the wrath of the Bears' first villain. Christy's friends, Dawn and John, and the rest of the Family join them in doing so. Narrating the tale is the Great Wishing Star (voiced by Chris Wiggins), who also helps True Heart and Noble Heart start the Kingdom, as both of them take care of the little orphan Cubs. Written by
For the longest time, I liked this movie better than the original Care Bears
movie. Well last summer, I watched them both together and decided I was
wrong. The first one is a better Care Bears movie (as you may have guessed
if you read my review for it). This one isn't a BAD movie, it's just...
Well first of all, as a few people have mentioned, it completely disavows
any knowledge of the first movie. I can't think of another sequel that
contradicts the original so blatantly (especially with the genders of some
characters and how they all met). When I was little and watching this, I
was quite a bit confused and distraught. I felt the same way watching it as
On to the reasons why the movie is actually pretty good (IF you disassociate
it from the first movie). I can't think of another movie for little kids
with a DEMON as it's villan! Now I am not for a minute suggesting that evil
demons who want to steal the souls of campers and Care Bears are good, I
just find it cool that there's a SUPREMELY EVIL BEING in a movie for little
kids! It's like that bizzare "Santa Clause vs. Satan" movie from Mexico you
hear about sometimes.
Anyhow, the demon's name is Darkheart and he wants this chick to help him
get the Care Bears in return for him giving her special powers. Very dark
for a kiddy flick eh? And did I mention that Darkheart appears to the girl
most often as a WHINEY VOICED 10 YEAR OLD BOY??? Freaky! Meanwhile some
other kids are in Care-a-Lot looking after BABY CARE BEARS! Oh, man!
Demons and baby Care Bears IN THE SAME MOVIE!!!!!
Needless to say, everything gets cleared up in the end (but not before we
get to see Darkheart trap the Care Bears' souls in this scary chandelere
thing in one [surprisingly] deeply disturbing scene). But I am left with
the question of wether this movie has found the cult audience it so richly
deserves. I might just watch it again myself.
