I think this sequel has a very rare quality- it's better than the first movie. It's faster, funnier, and has good animation. If you haven't seen this movie, you've never lived. You HAVE to see it!

This movie is a step above most Disney sequels. It actually captures the look and feel of the original, and expands greatly on the humor. Clever dialogue, cute puppies, great new characters, and a lightning fast pace make this one of the few Disney sequels that can stand up to the original. Recommended for kids and their parents!

Set immediately after the ending of the original 1961 film, Patch's London Adventure begins as Roger and his wife, Nanny and 101 dalmatians are moving out to their "dalmatian plantation". Unfortunately in all the excitement Patch has been left behind, so he begins to make his way across London when he meets his hero, Thunderbolt. At the same time, Cruella has fallen off the fur coat wagon, broken Jasper and Horace out of jail, teamed up with an abstract painter and begun looking for the puppies.The action here is more muddled than in the original. Also, a lot of favorite characters are ignored or missing; for instance, when Roger finds out Patch is not at the farm, he and Anita, Pongo and Perdita take off in a car to find him, but we don't see them again until the last scene. Neither do we see hide nor hair of the Great London Barking Chain and its charming denizens such as The Colonel and Sgt. Tibbs.DVD features include a trivia game, an interactive look inside Thunderbolt's trailer, a 7-minute making-of featurette, two music videos and 7 trailers. Audio is in English or French, and subtitles are available only in English.Because the placement of the live-action sequel starring Glenn Close takes place after these events, it might be fun and less confusing to watch the original and then this one as a double feature.

Heasks his dad, but Pongo's busy counting the kids!!When the pups are asleep, Patch creeps up to Pongo and asks, "Dad, am Ioneof a kind, or just one of 101?"

At first he misses them but thenhejumps onto the back of the Kanine Krunchies truck...At the show, the Announcer calls on Thunderbolt, who stuns the audiencewitha grand entrance, and Lil Lightning, who stuns the audience with hisclumsiness as he topples off the stage (So cyuute and hilarious!!)!Lightning gets jealous because Thunderbolt tells him that "No one caresabout the SIDEKICK!! They want a hero!!!" And the girls allswoon...Later, Lil Lightning lies to Thunderbolt to get him back.

That's where Patch comesin.Patch helps Thunderbolt because he knows what happens in everyepisode...Thunderbolt keeps attempting heroic rescues with the obviousdisastrous results!!

What is it with Disney and these stupid sequels? I tried watching it, but couldn't. Disney should focus more on original movies and less on sequels. Sequels are not the answer. The only Disney sequels that are good are Toy Story 2, Return of Jafar, The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, and Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Otherwise, they all suck. Somebody please give Roy Disney, or whoever's in charge, a good kick in the pants.

101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure is a 2002 Disney direct-to-DVD feature film and the sequel to the 1961 Disney classic. In part II, Patch, one of the 99 dalmatian puppies, feels he does not fit in, then one day, he saw his American TV idol, Thunderbolt, and now Patch wants to be like him. At first Patch and Thunderbolt did not get along but soon they became great friends, and when Cruella De Vil returns from prison to get her revenge on the puppies, it is up to Patch and Thunderbolt to save the day. The special features includes an interactive game, a music video and a behind-the-scenes look of the film, as well as sneak peeks of other Disney classics like the re-release of Sleeping Beauty, WALL-E, and The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea. 101 Dalmatians II is one of the best Disney animated favorites to watch out for.

My opinion for the movie is funny and great! Patch "felt lost in a sea ofspots". I know. That line is getting old, but SO WHAT!?Patch soon meets his hero, Thunderbolt, in a contest. But, with his badbark("Who sat on a squeaky toy?") It's obvious he's not going towin.Meanwhile, Lil. Lightning, Thunderbolts spunky (and, I must say, kindacute)sidekick has turned dark in the lead dog's shadow. Good pun, huh? Anyway,hetricks Thunderbolt into thinking he's going to be killed off the show andreplaced. And that the only way to remain on the show would be to dosomething heroic in the real world. Thunderbolt falls forit.As for Cruella de Vil? She's being kept out of every fur shop in London,aspart of her parole. She soon meets up with pop-artist, Lars, who works onpainting spots. She decides to give him an inspiration by re-stealing thepuppies and giving them to him as a gift. But Lars quickly rejects when helearns what Cruella plans to do with them.As the trailer says, this movie shows the difference between acting like ahero and being one. It also shows that you can be a one-of-a-kind if youputyour mind to it. One minor lesson is that if at first you don't succeed,try, try, and try again.Patch is a good-hearted adventurous pup, Thunderbolt is the fame-lovingcanine superstar, Lil. Lightning is his spunky and cute backstabbingsidekick mutt, Cruella is not allowed to buy furs, Jasper and Horace arescared of her, her car is still broken down from what happened in thefirstmovie, Pongo has a bad habit of loosing count of the dalmations... it'shardto write down in one review every piece I like about thismovie.

Great. I think that Patch's story tells the story of anyone in theworldwho's wanted to be special. Cruella was at her best here in "LondonAdventure", just as she was in the original One-Hundred and One Dalmatiansand the '96 remake. Lars was purely golden. When I saw this movie, itwasawesome. Thunderbolt was unique, and Little Lightning was hilarious.
(14 May 2013)
You just can't beat the original. The original flowed, this one doesn't. In the original Pongo was a dad that was looked up to and he was a hero, in this one Pongo is a dad looked down on . Thunderbolt has to "find himself", with all the emotional conflict of whether or not he wants to be a real hero or not is too much for a kid to enjoy, much less the adult having to watch this nonsense. Stick to the original.

***minor spoilers***With the exception of the fact that the puppies get caught,this film isnotthe same as the original.It is funnier and more delightful than the thefirst film.This goes just well with the first film to,I think it was saved by goingdirect to video and not in the cinema.Recommended to fans of 101 Dalmations.7\10
(12 May 2013)
I love that movie, is funny and very very cute.Commonly, the secquels of Disney sucks, but this one is not a pretencious one, and is very funny and amusing.The best character in the movie, for me, is one of the "bad guys", Lil' Lightning, a cute and adorable Pembroke Welsh Corgi. It's mean, but when you see the movie, you can understand him.Well, see it, you'll probably likes. Is very funny and cute :)
(11 May 2013)
This is one of the better Disney sequels, and Thunderbolt and Lil Lightning is stealing the show!I thought that this will be another typical animation sequel, but I got surprised, and it doesn't get overwhelmed by CGI.

Thunderbolt soon receives news thathewill be killed off in an upcoming episode. He was devastated. Hewantedto prove himself worthy in the public's eye. But how? He then thoughtofperforming heroic stunts in real life. He got Patch to help him;Roger,Anita and the Dalmatians soon arrive at their new home. It's quiteaplace. Roger sets up his music room in the basement. Theyoriginallydidn't have a basement, but Roger's piano made it when it fellthroughthe floor; Thunderbolt and Patch search around town and end upcausingmore catastrophes than they do preventing. Cruella soon discoversatrue inspiration for Lars: the Dalmatian puppies. But she finds outtheyhad moved, but soon discovers their new address and goes to thecountyjail to spring two old "friends": Jasper and Horace. They help stealaKanine Krunchies truck.

As for Patch,heand his 98 brothers and sisters got roles on the ThunderboltShow! This was actually better than I thought it would be.KnowingDisney sequels that never turn out very good, I thought this wouldbeone of them. I was wrong. It was actually quite good. It wasalmostgood enough to have been shown in theaters. My favorite characterwasLars; It's done in the same style as the 1961 original! The voicesarealmost the same but the reason they aren't is because the originalvoicecast is dead. So anyway, if you liked the original, then Irecommend101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure! It'll leave youseeingspots, as it did for Cruella De Vil but luckily she's locked up inanasylum for good! -

The first 101 Dalmatians film is a classic in my book. It was a favorite of mine when I was a little child, and I consider it to be nostalgic. There was a lot of emotion in that movie's story, and it was easily memorable. Plus, the idea of that film was very creative. It's really hard to say that a sequel for it would be impossible for it, as there were a long line of Disney sequels throughout the late 90's, early 00's. I knew about the sequel for a long time, but never watched it in its entirety like with Lady and the Tramp 2 and Bambi 2. So, I decided to give the movie a spin, and honestly, 101 Dalmatians 2: Patch's London Adventure SLIGHTLY disappointed me. Not in any way of being terrible like The Lion King 1 1/2, but, it's still far from excellent, and I wasn't expecting much.The movie starts off with the Dalmatians anticipating moving day, where they will move to a rural area far away from the grips of the infamous Cruella De Vil. Patch, voiced by unknown child actor Bobby Lockwood, feels that he is left out of the family, but longs to become a "One of a Kind Wonder-Dog", like his TV idol Thunderbolt, played by Barry Bostwick, as well as discovering that there will be auditions to appear on Thunderbolt series. When moving day arrives, Patch gets left behind at the old house, but luckily finds a Canine Crunchies truck that, predictably speaking, leads him to the Thunderbolt auditions. Oddly enough, Patch becomes intertwined with Thunderbolt after the auditions, as Thunderbolt is looking for positive publicity. Meanwhile, in the villain side-plot, Cruella De Vil seeks out an artist named Lars (Martin Short) who does Dalmatian-like art. It's not long before Cruella sends her two helpers, Jasper and Horace, to kidnap the other puppies, to inspire Lars. Patch and Thunderbolt hear about this, but end up being kidnapped by Cruella. Similar to the first film, it's a desperate attempt to escape from Cruella.Let's start out with what I liked about this film. Patch is a VERY cute character. Bobby Lockwood was the right choice for the character, as the character is given the right personality. He is not as well-executed as Scamp or Bambi, but overall I liked Patch. Also, the movie's message is very essential and relevant to life. All people are "one of a kind" and have their own personalities, and it's a message like this that more movies should have. I also liked the jazzy music, SOME of the other characters, and some of the voice acting is decent as well.Now, to get on with what went wrong with the film (not anything that hurts the film as a whole, but things that Disney fans have come to expect with most of the Disney sequels). The animation is VERY poor compared to some other Disney sequels. Granted, it's sketchy, but the characters move too abnormally, almost like as if it's a third-rate animated cartoon. Admittedly, I liked some of the animation, but overall, it should've been improved. Also, I didn't like the very cliched characters in the film, such as the female puppies who are lovestruck for Thunderbolt. Finally, I feel like the movie is missing some well-known actors. Granted, there is Jason Alexander as Lightning, and there is Barry Bostwick and Martin Short, as well as well-known voice actors such as Jeff Bennett and Jodi Benson. But, the issue is, I feel like some of the side characters, including the over-obsessive female dogs, need better voice actors. It's not a big deal like with the animation, but still.OK, so to wrap everything up, 101 Dalmatians 2: Patch's London Adventure is, I hate to say it, not the brightest cookie of the batch. It does have its moments where it is enjoyable, and it is a great movie, but overall, it's nothing like the original, or that short-lived cartoon. If you are a devoted fan of 101 Dalmatians, or if you are a child, you might find this movie to be up to the heights of the original. But, for those of you who don't praise movies based on one thing that you liked, I suggest you view this movie expecting to be disappointed.Rating: 4 spots/5 spots

This review is from: 101 Dalmatians II - Patch's London Adventure [VHS] (VHS Tape) Artwork was up to Disney's top notch quality. However, although it had its moments, I feel that it does not live up to the quality storyline telling of the original 1961 classic.
(08 May 2013)
In the past, Disney has produced some... let's say less-than-perfect sequels. They were lousy, horrid, and much disliked, until...YES!!! Even though this movie shares the same storyline as Lady and the Tramp II, this sequel actually represents the storyline correctly. It also does something that no other sequel has done, it accurately imitates the look and feel of the original. The only thing I missed was the Cruella de Vil song. They should've had it.If you hadn't already guessed it, the storyline is that Patch, one of the 99 dalmatian puppies, feels like one of many puppies, and he wants to be a one-of-a-kind wonderdog like his TV hero, Thunderbolt. (C'mon, who didn't want to be Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, or Annie Oakley when they were kids?) Anyway, it's Patch's dream to go and meet his superhero, Thunderbolt, who just so happened to be coming to London.Anyway, Roger and Anita Radcliff have wanted to move to a bigger place, because the number of dalmatians is overwhelming for the small house they live in. During the move, Patch gets left behind accidentally. Confused and alone, Patch then seeks his hero.Meanwhile, Cruella discovers an artist who's artwork consist of, yes, spots. She also bails out Jasper and Horace (who were terrified to be under Cruella's command again) to snatch the puppies away.One more thing. My favorite character is Little Lightning. In the story, you'll see that Thunderbolt is a bit, ahem, stuck on himself. He has a real ego trip. Little Lightning, who is jealous of living in Thunderbolt's shadow and is constantly ignored by Thunderbolt, plots a way to get rid of Thunderbolt and make himself the star. I feel sorry for him.Anyway, the only problem I found with this sequel was that Pongo always counted the puppies as 101, but at the end of the movie, 99 puppies were mentioned. HA HA HA HA HA!!! I guess that there will never really be a truly perfect Disney cartoon sequel, but this certainly came as close to perfection as possible.

This review is from: 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure (Special Edition) (DVD) great movie, first DVD did not work but seller sent another one immediately and it was fine, happy with sale.

This direct-to-video sequel to Disney's 1961 animated classic is fun for aboring day and can be watched more than once, but it's probably betterthatit went right to video and not the theater. The good thing is that in themovie Patch proves just how brave he can be and shows that windbagwonderdogThunderbolt what a real hero is. At the end, I wonder what will happen toCruella DeVill in the mental asylum? Also, what became of Thunderbolt'sslimeball sidekick Little Lightning? Maybe he got fired fromThunderbolt'sTV show and got reduced to doing pooper-scooper commercials!
