First off, I've been a smurfs fan/collector for over 30 years now and I'm going to be as unbiased as possible. Despite its flaws, I loved the first Smurfs live action movie from 2011 and unfortunately I have a hard time watching 'Smurfs 2' in it's entirety. Simply put, 'Lost Village' gets back to its roots and is the best of the Sony Pictures Animation offerings. It may not have the depth of most Pixar movies but the movie has heart and it stays true to what the Smurfs are. I'm planning on seeing it again in 3D (which I'm not a huge fan of) due to overall visuals in the movie which really popped even in 2D. The only concern I had originally is how Rainn Wilson would be as Gargamel since it's hard to top Paul Winchell's Gargamel from the classic Hanna- Barbera series but he brought something new & different and I wasn't disappointed with it. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen and be sure to stay during the credits for a little added bonus about halfway through. Overall A-/B+
