The D2: Mighty Ducks – Filtered
D2: THE MIGHTY DUCKS is non- stop action, excitement and fun. Young, and not so young, people will love it. Attorney turned coach, Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estavez), returns to again coach the Mighty Ducks championship team. This time they are the Team USA and are bound for the international Junior Goodwill Games in Los Angeles. All of the original team members (Joshua Jackson, Matt Doherty, Brandon Adams, Marguerite Moreau, Shaun Weiss, Vincent Larusso, Garette Henson, and Elden Ratliff) join up. Other talented players are added from Cuba, Texas, Maine, Korea and inner city Los Angeles. Their winning spirit starts to fade as both Bombay and the team get caught up in the glamour of Los Angeles and the rewards of commercial sports. When the final world championship game rolls around with the large, mean team from Iceland, it appears the Team USA is in big trouble. Can Bombay, or anyone else, pull them through? The film is jam-packed with fierce hockey contests, emotional ups and downs and rollerblade skating and adventures on the streets of Los Angeles. The final game will keep everyone on the edge of his chair with heart pounding. D2 THE MIGHTY DUCKS is another big winner!
Like the original Mighty Ducks, this group of young, teenage hockey players hits the ice and becomes a near professional team. Although it is a bit on the corny side, it is a great family film that is very clean except for some hockey fighting at the rink and one scene with a couple of boys in their boxers. The best things about the movie are the values of never giving up and teamwork.
