If I remember correctly, it was the Greek philosopher Socrates who said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” It may also have been Jesus, whose words were more like, “To whom much has been given, much will be expected.” Thematically, these are two quotes that may have inspired the narrative behind The Smurfs 2, the not-entirely highly anticipated sequel to the $500M behemoth released in 2011. In the follow-up, we get a new origin story for Smurfette, voiced again by Katy Perry. You see, she’s a got a dark past and it is revealed that within her Smurfness resides some pretty Smurfin’ great power. And she must choose whether to use her Smurf-powers for the purposes of good, as Papa Smurf has taught her, or fall under the dark spell of the evil wizard Gargamel. As it would in films like Spider-Man 2 or other superhero sequels full of escalating stakes, the fate of the world (of Smurfs) hangs in the balance. Then again, this is a movie populated by a bunch of weird little blue people, one of which is voiced by Shaq.
