There are 246 reviews of the film, with an incredible 245 positive reviews. But now, there is one negative addition to the bunch.

Eddie Harrison at Film Authority gave the movie a negative review, writing that he felt it deviated from the original story.

“Considerations of race and identity, key to the Paddington character, are not addressed, and the situations that this Paddington finds himself in are contrived and ridiculous; it simply shouldn’t happen to a bear,” he wrote, adding that Ben Whishaw as Paddington “sounds like a member of some indie-pop band coming down from an agonizing ketamine high.”

“I reviewed Paddington 2 negatively for BBC radio on release in 2017, and on multiple occasions after that, and I stand by every word of my criticism,” he maintained.

“This is not my Paddington Bear, but a sinister, malevolent imposter who should be shot into space, or nuked from space at the first opportunity.”
