This was a great movie for kids. It was not scary in the least but there was a vast array of monsters to tickle their imagination.
As for the adults, it dragged a bit. The last twenty or so minutes were very entertaining. There is something about watching animated monsters and animals dance that amuses me greatly.
We watched it in 3-D and weren’t terribly impressed with the effects. It just gave the characters more dimension and nothing really jumped out at you.
I recommend looking at the list of cast members before you go. It makes the movie more enjoyable when your not sitting there thinking, “Who is that?”
The cast was great. There were a lot of notable actors/actresses that did a top notch job.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
