A delightful family movie involving Paddington, the Brown family, a thieving villain, and quite a caper.
There’s some great CGI to create a credible fictional bear refugee in London. Add Hugh Grant playing an ageing, egotistical, thespian master of disguise and while it is childish at times it is also heartwarming and entertaining.
The strange dated, yet modern, London suited to the Paddington stories comes alive in some very neatly done scenes. And there are some real moments of despair with Paddington in prison. And some of real peril in the train chase.
Well worth seeing.
