A kids film worth your kids' time.
3 April 2018 | by Jesper BrunSee all my reviews

It deals with topics like adapting to new environments, being alone and sticking together to achieve your goals. It is decent stuff to make our main characters likable.

We also get some catchy songs in this feature which are actually both hummable and fitting in their respective scenes. The skateboard song is my favorite song and Wulle Wulle Wap is catchy and describes Hugo and his monkey friends Zik and Zak very well with its silly nature.

It has a couple of scenes that may be a bit frightening to younger viewers, but it is not excessive. Our main antagonist, Isabella, has a breakdown which, in my opinion, is a little disturbing and unnecessary, but adds some nice surreal imagery to address her obsession with Hugo.

Worth your kids' time if you ask me.
