I really liked the other alvin and the chipmunks movies
16 March 2018 | by ChrisLFinchSee all my reviews

The Movie came out in 2016 for me 2015 for others and is 1hr 32 mins long This Movie has Animation, Adventure and Comedy and is rated U It's Directed by Walt Becker and created by Ross Bagdasarian Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer and Adam Sztykiel

im going to quickly cover what this movie is about before I review it. ......................................................................................

Its about Alvin, Simon and Theodore who come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in Miami and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother. .......................................................................................... I give this movie 5/10

I really liked the other alvin and the chipmunks movies. So I watch this one and I have to say I dont really like how this movie started, it didnt really feel like alvin and the chipmunks. It didnt feel like the old alvin and the chipmunks. And I think if they did this a few years eralyer it would of felt like Alvin and the Chipmunks and it had been 4 years stins they made Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and they'd lost it the feel to it.

The plot started off slow and didn't make sense why the chipmunks were no longer performing but soon everything made sense and the characters' mot-ives were clear.The animation of the three chipmunks was really good, but the visual effects that blend them with the real-world backdrops are mostly bad

The jokes and sight gags wasn't very funny, the chipmunks aren't as entertaining as they usually are and their performances lacked creativity and energy They some of the characters felt cliché and dry. I have to say I really hated Miles because he bullies and abuses the chipmunks but deep down you can see he is in pain and has issues that he needs to work on I was sad that ian didn't come back for this sequel. He was the best part of the previous installments. The guy replacing him as the 'villain' wasn't nearly as funny. But my favourite scene was with the new villain in this movie who is this guy called James

who is a mean air marshal and he is trying to be the best at his job and then the chipmunks comes in and basically ruin it I like this movie because It teaches a good lesson about family and trust and some of the sences maded me smile and I think its a good movie but I really thought there would be more laugh out loud moments, I thought there was very few even funny scenes. the comedy has changed. Now the comedy is'nt very good and before it was just regular kids stuff.

I see this movie trying to keep up with people my age as Alvin and the Chipmunks came out in 2007 and I was 8 at the time and with this movie I can see it ageing up bit. In this movie there is quite a lot of alcohol and clubbing screen time and the on-duty air marshal is offered two different drinks containing moonshine and there are Some lyrics that are suggestive and Some flirting and jokes about who's "hot." and there is couples that embraces and kisses and some dirty dancing which is not appropriate for children which is rated U which means suitable for audiences aged four years and over I did like some of the music that was used
