You don't have to watch (or even be aware of) the The Squad: Home Run's 2015 predecessor to understand this sequel, because there just isn't enough to care about in the film's halfhearted action scenes and rudimentary mystery-solving. Even as it promises an interesting dynamic between ex-cop Niels Cartier (played by Alban Lenoir) and his rebellious teenage daughter Charlotte-Serge (Cassiopée Mayance), these characters fall into cliche too. Rather than have them form a relationship built on their shared grief, all of that feeling is pushed aside for jokes about obvious generational differences. The film is watchable enough (albeit more as white noise than as engaging entertainment) but by the end it all seems pointless—an adventure heading nowhere.
