Okay this movie was probably the most hyped movie following its release, and let me just say, there was definitely good reasoning for that. I have never gotten excited about a Marvel/DC or action movie, and a motion picture comic book? No thanks. Well I am incredibly glad I listened to the reviews and went to watch it.
It was INCREDIBLE.
The animation was BEAUTIFUL! the incredible thing about it was that there were three to four different types of animations in the movie! It of course was mainly the animation seen in the previews, but it also included anime, old time hand drawn animation, and comic book animation. It was beautiful all of the way around, perfectly drawn. It more than definitely deserved to Golden Globe for Best Animation.
I really didn’t understand why everyone was saying the story was so good before I saw it. In the first five minutes of the movie, I was growing disappointed, because it seemed to be like every other superhero movie ever. But around minute six, I was on the edge of my seat and never laid back. The whole movie was upbeat, captivating, and it honestly got me emotionally invested. There were just enough plot twists and turns and it wasn’t predictable at all. It was the perfect balance of love, action, and everything in between. But fair warning, water works may be existent in this movie
I typically hate the antagonists in every movie, especially superhero movies. And I’m not talking about the type of antagonists you love to hate, no. I genuinely get annoyed when the villains are introduced. The villains in this movie were not that bad though! They had good reason to be villains, and that is usually why I get annoyed, when movies have villains that have no motives. These villains were good villains! Of course not good good villains, but they were the type of villains that I loved to hate!
This is a perfect movie for the whole family, not just the kids. It does not have any older kid content or anything like that. It is genuinely a movie that the whole family will enjoy.
I did not at all think this movie would live up to my expectations or the reviews, but it definitely did and more! It is definitely a must see for this year! Bring your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, uncle, dog, and your pig. This movie is that good! It’s definitely a feel good movie– once you get past the water works BUT NO SPOILERS DON’T WORRY! But for sure. Go see it. Right now.
