Way better than expected, a bit of a surprise to me since the trailer I saw gave me the impression that this would be a disaster with terrible voice work. Not so!
(Lol at myself for hearing Seth Rogen as Frankenstein['s monster] the entire movie when it was in fact Kevin James.)
Kudos to Sony for pulling of a beautiful movie, the visuals are excellent! They are racking up some fine work now with titles like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Arthur Christmas.
Perhaps you could argue that their work is too energetic and overly hyperactive, and I wish they would take a page out of Miyazaki's playbook now and pace themselves. You don't have to cram 99% of the run time with blistering light-speed action!
If you have ever seen kids absolutely spellbound by My Neighbor Totoro, then you know what I mean.
Although not as good as a Pixar film, it has great animation, a talented voice cast, and enough jokes and sight gags to keep you entertained through it's 80 min runtime. It was better than I expected.
Gorgeous animation but the plot is really full of fluff, nothing substantial. Let's not even talk about the plot, there's nothing really funny or any memorable one-liners. To sum it up, it is a 90 mins visual feast. Nothing more.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
