The UK version is cut for a U certificate, removing a use of "bloody", several scenes of characters being electrocuted, a sequence where Ferdinand and Valiente must evade blades in a meat processing plant, and Ferdinand being slashed during the climax. See more »
It may be a bit generic with a predictable plot and some cliché characters. Some of the voice acting may be a bit jarring and the animation is simply OK. Still Ferdinand delivered humor and warmth in spades. I could not stop laughing!
Even when the jokes were corny, the corniness fits right in with a soft-hearted, flower loving bull that wouldn't hurt a fly.
A pretty good, feel-good family movie for when you just want some light watching.
