Steve West: “It was ok.”
Not much laugh-out-loud material but plenty of chuckles and a few tug-at-your-heartstrings teary moments. Fairly predictable plotline even for a kiddie movie still delivers consistent charming scenes. What's the big deal over Russel Brand (yawn)?
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
It's refreshing for a movie to star a supervillain, so much so that I wanted to see more of his work in the early scenes before his inevitable conversion into something less interesting. This is watered-down Pixar, mildly ambitious and contentedly so-so.
