Anthropomorphic battle against extinction
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

As has been said by me many times, am a huge fan of animation. Always have been, always will be, so naturally will see any animated film regardless of age, how high budget or not it is and the studio/director it comes from.

There are far better animated films than 'The Missing Lynx', naming them however would be unfair but many are likely to put forward the best of Disney and Pixar. There are also infinitely worse, at least with 'The Missing Lynx' some effort was put into it which is more than can be said with far more amateurish efforts from Video Brinquedo and Spark Plug Entertainment. It's not a great film but there are far worse ways to waste one's time.

It does have some nice detailed backgrounds and some vibrancy in the colours. It has a peppy soundtrack that gives the film energy. While the characters hardly have depth, the protagonists have likable charm and there are a few amusing side characters.

Children and adults will find things to enjoy in 'The Missing Lynx', more so children because while adults shouldn't find it a struggle the flaws will be more apparent. Children will like the innocent humour and the lively action as well as the protagonists and side characters, while the adults may admire the good intentions of the environmental message, that thankfully isn't as preachy as one would think and that it does try to have an emotional connection.

However, not all the animation is great. Some of the colours are flat but it's the blocky character designs and their stiff movements that fare weakest. The story is too simple and too much of a patchwork of derivative elements except executed in an inferior way.

Some of the writing similarly misfires, especially in its tendency to inexplicably over-explain. There is nothing to be confused by here for younger audiences and they will have no problem keeping up, so the over-explaining really wasn't necessary. While the protagonists and side characters fare decently, the villains are too much like stock caricatures and could have been more threatening. A lot of the voice acting is wooden and some of it is also mismatched.

In summary, 'The Missing Lynx' is alright but nothing special. 5/10 Bethany Cox
