In this follow up to Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure, Mickey Matson is at it again; this time pitted against the evil Admiral Ironside's and his gang of pirates who are intent on destroying civilization. They're new invention, the Tesla Coil, is a weapon of mass destruction that will send an electromagnetic pulse throughout the world, destroying every electronic device in existence. With the help of a secret organization, Mickey and his best friend Sully embark on a mission to stop the pirates from taking over a submarine and stealing the last part needed to complete their devastating weapon. If Admiral Ironside's succeeds in his plan, civilization will be sent back to the Stone Age. It's a race against time, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
I watched the first Mickey Matson movie, Micky Matson and the Copperhead Treasure when it came out three years ago. Although it is more of a kid's movie, I liked it and was happy to see a second movie coming out.
Just like the first movie, this one is completely family and kid-friendly. I thought the acting and the plot was better on this DVD, and it had a lot more special effects in it also. Derek Brandon, who plays Mickey Matson, has matured and gotten better with his acting, and he had a great performance on the movie, along with the rest of the cast.
There is violence, but nothing too extreme: people fighting and getting hit with wrenches and other objects, and being shot with some kind of laser gun that just stuns and does not kill. There are no death scenes or anyone getting seriously injured in the movie.
This is not a Christian movie, but it is 100% clean and free of bad language. There are good morals in the movie along with a patriotism that is missing in too many movies Hollywood produces. This is a movie to watch with your kids without fearing they will see or hear something you'd rather they not.
I enjoyed the movie a lot. Maybe I am just immature, but it kept me on the edge of my seat and I found myself cheering the hero on, and I loved the ending. I highly recommend it. And although it is a sequel, I would say someone could watch it and not feel like they are in the dark about what is going on.
