Maybe as a grown-up, I am not the best qualified to rate a film that is clearly designed for children ... but this film was not designed for children, it was designed BY children - or maybe that's an insult to children. I would like to criticise the plot, except that I couldn't find any evidence of one. At no point was there any excitement and at no point was there any humour. The only piece of creativity which deserves mention is Kilowatt - probably the most irritating character whose ridiculous body, trilling, squeeking voice and general annoying script had my grinding my teeth every time she wobbled onto the screen. This showed that at least the creators were able to excel in one thing: to drive you nuts!
So, what exactly was the point of this film? I would say that the sole point was to make money, an obvious show of "Right, let's make another film about monkeys. No need to put any money, effort or imagination into it. People will watch any rubbish these days, so let's give them some crap and buy ourselves some nice cars with the profit."
The only emotion this inspired in me was irritation at how gullible I was to waste 80 minutes of my life in this way. If you want to entertain your children, I would recommend you paint their bedroom walls and allow them to watch as they dry. This would give them more fun.
