Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Sorry, this movie sucks
Am i the only one who thinks........Average?
While it is a pity that the story wasn't told with more visual finesse, this is trivial compared to our real-world problems. It takes a good movie to put that into perspective.
I really enjoyed it. Although the animation does not have the fine detail (fur, grass) of bigger budget movies, the action sequences, characters, visuals and the soundtrack are great. It is very fast moving and full of refreshing jokes and surprises. The creators of this movie must have had lots of fun making it. I disagree with some other reviewers - it is not your typical Noah's Ark story. Imho, it is definitely original, and not just in the main idea, but in many other aspects of the movie as well. I have not watched it with kids, but I believe small kids as well as many adults will love it. If you feel already tired of the Pixar, Disney, etc. style of animated movies, then see this one.
I have to admit I was surprised when I watched this, because I didn't think it would be as entertaining as it was. Obviously if you take the technical aspect of it, this seems light years away from current Pixar or other animated movies. But when it comes to the comedy and characters it's not half as bad.Still the standard is high and movies are not only audio, but also how the visual might affect your movie experience. Very small kids may not mind, but teens surely will have an issue and won't understand the problems with making a movie on a budget. Having said that, you should give this movie a chance. Try to see more than just the obvious and you'll have fun
I'm a huge fan of Disney and Pixar, so I'm usually really sceptical when I see non-Disney movies, but this was actually really good. I was really surprised by how good this was, I've never heard of it and found it by accident, so I didn't have any big expectations for it. But I was pleasantly surprised, I actually really liked it. It had a good plot, and even though it's based on a religious story it wasn't religious at all. God wasn't mentioned, and Noah was only mentioned when a lion told the other animals who built the ark. It also had a really good plot twist/surprise at the end, which was totally unexpected. And my younger brother (6 years old) didn't loose focus from it as he usually does when he watches movies, he really loves this one. It was funny, emotional and just a really nice children's movie.
Commencing the movie defense in 3... 2... 1!I, like probably many others, thought this was a generic animated motion picture "for the entire family". I was so wrong. So very wrong. Not only was it not generic; it was way better than expected. After all, it was so good, I am giving it a 9!Okay, let's start with the premise. It is very simple. A single mother and a single father are separated from their daughter and son (respectively), and need to get back together. The daughter is a hunter-type animal who works alone, and the son is a timid-type animal with a natural gift for building things, and a love for warm hugs. It is one of THOSE movies, with the moral being "we need to work together!" It is, as I said, simple, and not terribly original.Now, the reason I give this movie a 9 out of 10. Despite the simple old-as-dirt moral, the way it is HANDLED is great. Morals take a backseat, while the front seat gets firmly occupied by the action, the gags, and the dialogue. It is like the movie team were given complete creative freedom to come up with as many interesting scenes as possible, and they done all of them. The timing of the action is great, the lines are great, the voice acting is great, and not a single "funny" moment felt forced (to me anyway, some people are much more picky). Actually, this movie reminds me a lot of Penguins of Madagascar, in the way it's structured (simple moral, but runs on non-stop gags).The animation has to be mentioned somewhere, so might as well mention it here. It is really good. The only parts where I thought things looked "imperfect", was every time tree branches were used. This animated movie does not have the best looking branches out there. Wood aside, all the textures and atmospheric effects are perfectly fine. And in my books "perfectly fine" equates to "nothing being wrong". The animation itself deserves a 9 as well.You are probably asking at this point: "But what about the Ark? What about Noah? How are those elements used?" Well, I did not mark this review as containing spoilers, and I am not delivering any. Let's just say, the way the "Ark" part of the story is handled, is the most creative way I ever it seen it handled in any movie. And I'll leave it at that.I won't spoil the ending either, but I will tell you that I did not see it coming. That was some truly great cartoon writing, and I was pleasantly surprised. Now, to reassure you somewhat, I wasn't born yesterday, and seen and read hundreds of stories. I have frames of reference, and I have developed that thing called "taste". The ending of this movie was GOOD. Trust me on that.Last, but not least, the movie's title. It was changed for every country it was released in, if I am not mistaken. And it is funny, albeit in a sad way. It can instill the wrong impression upon the potential audience (aka, you), that the people who made this movie did not have any idea what they did. I assure you, the naming problem in no way reflects the actual content, because the movie is great. After all, if it wasn't, I wouldn't give it a 9 out of 10.Watch it. Now. Don't be afraid. It's really good.
