It's definitely not as witty as #TheLegoMovie, but #PlaymobilTheMovie is a colorful mix between a musical animation and live action, perfect for kids under double digits.
THINGS I LIKED:
I like Anya Taylor-Joy and thought she did a great job. There were, however, a few times when she said her lines so fast that I couldn't understand what she said.
The talented musical cast includes Meghan Trainor, Adam Lambert, Anya Taylor-Joy. Other non-singing highlights include Daniel Radcliffe and Kenan Thompson. This is Daniel Radcliffe's first animated film.
Comedian Jim Gaffigan! Yes! I just wrote in my recent movie review of THEM THAT FOLLOW that it always catches me off guard when I see him in a serious drama. He always does a great job in drama or comedy. Now he can add "musical" to his filmography. He has a fantastic voice for animation and has the funniest lines in the movie.
Gabriel Bateman does a good job as live action and voice talent.
It was cute to see a burly Viking with a little kid voice.
Parents will appreciate the female "Jabba the Hut" character from the original Star Wars: A New Hope.
Kids will enjoy the variety of environments and lands.
THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE:
It doesn't have the humor and zip that the Lego movies have.
The songs are enjoyable but not very memorable.
Some of the voices don't quite match what the characters look like.
More punchy humor would have helped.
TIPS FOR PARENTS:
There is a sad moment when people die, although you don't see it happen.
A boy says that something "sucks" and his sister says, "Language!"
A boy and his sister play with some Playmobil figures. Your kids are probably going to want to buy some. This movie is filled with merchandising.
A boy says tattoos are cool.
Fighting among Playmobil characters.
A character drinks alcohol.
Toys in danger.
Your kids may want a passport.
