Why It Rocks
- It stays incredibly faithful to its source material.
- The cast reprises their roles for the movie.
- The soundtrack was really fun to listen to especially the song "On The Road To Canada".
- Amazing voice acting from the cast, even Marc Evan Jackson did an excellent job at voicing Agent Trout.
- Agent Trout is a very dark villain, and a very interesting antagonist, probably the most dangerous villain the bears ever came across.
- It shows the time the bears first met.
- The CGI used is fantastic, especially the one used for the helicopter.
- It teaches an anti-racist message, so kids can grow up to not be racist.
- It has a lot of funny moments like the part when the bears drove off when the cop found out they were bears, then a van that looks exactly like there's and it's humans inside with the same outfits as the bears and when the bears stole Officer Murphy's bear complaint binder.
- The action scenes are fun and intense to watch and might make you shed some tears.
- It has really emotional moments
- The way Agent Trout is defeated is somewhat anticlimactic. (Because instead of having a final battle with Grizz and being quickly defeated, and when he returns to escape, HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT THE POLICE ON THE HELICOPTER WAS THERE!) That's somewhat disappointing...
- The film's first part does drag a little bit, and it is a pretty short movie.
- False advertising: Lots of posters and DVD covers show Ice Bear wearing sunglasses, yet he never actually wears them in the film.
- Pizza Rat is an unlikable character, he sold out the Bears to Agent Trout to gain more social media followers and is never seen again for the rest of the movie and gets off scot-free.
- The scene where Panda tells Grizz "we're not brothers" might not only be intense for young viewers but a bit cliched at the same time.
- Lots of pandering, such as the bears reenacting popular memes, or the bears meeting internet celebrity animals based on animal memes.
