Storyline

The missing lynx tells us about the story of a group of animals which they plan to escape from Noe. Noe is an old eccentric billionaire's who wants to build his own Noe's arc to save the endangered animals. This old man recruits Newmann who is the best hunter in the world. This character only wants to be paid by his services but, even with his reputation, he finds some problems on his task. Félix, an Iberian lynx with so much bad luck (the main reason for whose he believes he's an endangered species) who is the leader of a strange group of animals tries to face Newmann intentions and free the captured species.

cutest (and most hilarious) animated Spanish movie out right now!
30 July 2012 | by nikozguriSee all my reviews

i been watching animated movies made in Spain for about 4 years now and i gotta say Spanish people make cute animated movies. But i think "The Missing Lynx" is cuter, funnier and it looks better.

The movie tells the story of Felix, a lazy and unlucky Iberian lynx, who's staying in a animal recovery center in Donana National Park. Then, he learns about Noah (Noe in Spanish), a eccentric millionaire who tries to create a so-called "Noah's Ark" for endangered animals. Along with a group of friends: Gus, a paranoid chameleon; Beeety (Beeea in Spanish), a "dare-devil" like goat; Astarte, a brave female falcon and Rupert, a almost-blind mole, Felix tries to ruin Noah's plans. On the way, Felix falls for a female lynx called Lynxette (Lincesa in Spanish).

Well, i gotta admit, the story seems weak and a little predictable. But overall, "The Missing Lynx" is a great Spanish movie for kids and full of entertainment. I loved all the characters in the movie, especially Gus. He made me laugh so hard with all his paranoid stuff. The movie also leaves a good message for protecting the endangered animals from destruction. Do i recommend this movie? Yep, totally. Cuz it's really gonna entertain both kids and adults of every age. Big shout-out to Raul Garcia, Manuel Sicilia and Antonio Banderas for making this movie. They did a great job.

9/10
