Horton Hears a Who

7 04 2008

Horton Hears a Who is a simple kids film with a couple funny lines. By kids film I mean that. This is not a kids movie by Pixar that is enjoyable for all ages. The very simple plot is backed by simple characters some of which don’t work; namely the kangaroo. I had high hopes after the first ten minutes as there were quite a few good lines and some pretty awesome monkeys. The film then slowed down until near the end.

Dreamworks/Blue Sky Studios are definitely improving from the art side on their films. The use of color and animation is quite good at points but they still aren’t creating the magic that Pixar can. Unless you need a safe film for the kids it’s probably best to give this one a pass.

length: 1 hour and 28 minutes
score: 60% | metacritic: 71
