It's not that bad!!,
This review is from: Back To The Secret Garden  [DVD] (DVD)
The problem with sequels is that everyone expects it to pick up exactly where the first one ended...However this is not the case. Yes the first one was better, but as far as sequels go, I think this has had a good attempt. The original character of Mary Lennox is in it(all grown up now though of course, and played by Cherie Lunghi), and Joan plowright does very well in her leading role. The garden itself, although somewhat smaller than the original is very picturesque. There is some beautiful scenery in the film and I think it could be a very nice film to watch on a sunday afternoon with a cup of tea and your feet up!!.Quite a good film that stands alone, and you don't feel you've missed any of the story if you haven't seen the first one.
