‘Coming 2 America’ Review: An Enjoyable But Overstuffed Sequel

On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Prime Video’s Coming 2 America. Joined by contributors Andrew Salazar (Discussing Film), Nguyen Le (The Houston Chronicle), and Josie Marie (Film Posers), they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.

Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Despite an extremely messy narrative that gets lost between numerous jarring sequences, an impressive production value and brilliantly comedic performances save the day to result in an enjoyable film that will be fun for the whole family!
