The knd must find a way to stop grandfather from ruling the world and turning everyone including adults into senior citizen zombies. Meanwhile numbuh one finds out his loser dad was the great numbuh zero.
In the city of Townsville, the frustrated Professor Utonium is gathering all the ingredients to make a perfect little girl (sugar, spice, and everything nice). But when his lab assitant, a monkey named Jojo, causes the accidental addition of Chemical X to the mix, the Professor ends up with not one but 3 perfect, powerful little girls. It soon becomes obvious that Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are not normal girls, they have superpowers and have not yet learned to control. The girls are treated like outcasts because they have inadvertently wrecked Townsville in a superpowered game of tag. To win the hearts of the people of Townsville, the girls are tricked into making a deal with Jojo who plans to take over Townsville. As the girls foil this threat and defeat an army of superpowered monkeys, the Powerpuff Girls learn that with great power comes great responsibility.Written by
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the principal voice actresses Cathy Cavadini, Tara Strong and Elizabeth Daily went on strike because they felt they weren't being paid enough to do a movie, so Cartoon Network threatened to replace them with more popular voice actresses for the movie as well as for the TV series. Fortunately, a deal was made and Cavadini, Strong and Daily were able to reprise their respective roles as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. See more »

The city of Townsville...
[an explosion is heard, and a red hue emanates o.c. down on Townsville streets. An alarm is heard in the distance]
...is in some serious, serious, serious trouble! Day after day, crime, lawlessness and evil are running rampant. Its citizens have lost all hope!. They are utterly helpless and in desperate need of a true hero! But who? Is there no one who can help this forsaken town and make it a better place?

This Cartoon Network theatrical feature has a special Cartoon Network logo: all the Hanna-Barbara/Cartoon Network characters are seated in a movie theater (the Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo in front). The theater gets dark, and all that is seen are the characters' eyes, which form the Cartoon Network logo. See more »
A normal Powerpuff episode ^ 2 = a tad too much? :x
Well, I can't say I was not entertained! But the endless repetitions of everything made the movie a bit tedious at times.
Genius to see all the different creatures they've created for this movie. And thankfully, the PPG's haven't been made into family friendly puppets in the movie.. they can still kick ass and even kill.. which they certainly do..!
What has been done to strengthen the PPG's as a movie:
Far too many puns and playoffs of movie classics and far too many tedious repetitions, as mentioned. Many things for some reason happen in rhythm and sequence as they would in a musical, this is also cool sometimes in the series, but only in small portions at a time. None of these elements add too much positive stuff to the movie.
In addition to special effects and an avalanche of cool characters (which are both good stuff), this is what has been done. They also seem to have changed the mayor's voice and behaviour somewhat - he's not really that funny in the movie.
If the entire movie was going to be set in Townsville (except a small scene on an asteroid), it might've been better to play off the misc. genius characters from the movie, Fuzzy Lumpkins, Him, etc..
And/or take the girls on a voyage/trial (underwater? space?) that would give us a different setting than (misc tall grey concrete buildings) in faceless Townsville (which we've seen so much from already).
Boring, unchanging setting, some annoying bad elements, annoyingly different mayor character - BUT - some phat effects, fun story, exiting graphics and interesting characters. Ah well! 7/10
