Boring, Scatterbrained, Cheap Zootopia Knock-Off
noro-4610717 February 2020
It's been said before but this movie is just a Zootopia knock-off. It's boring and has horribly dry dialogue. I don't recommend this to ANYONE, not even anyone with kids.

The Cheap Chinese Knock-Off of Zootopia
cascadiarch13 February 2020
I guess it was inevitable but jeeze. I was really hoping it'd have better writing and production values than this. From the characters to the world itself, there's absolutely nothing to connect with if you've already seen better films that do everything it's trying to do.

You cannot get bored.
nieXas2 February 2020
Despite some Russian and Chinese references, this is a good and easy movie for all ages. While the start of the movie wasnt very promising, it does get better. It has some deep message about climate change, some adult jokes, great soundtrack and super realistic animation. I would give it 7/10, but giving 10 because of low other reviews.

My children were entertained and I wasnt bored most of the movie. Thats enough.

Incredible !!!
jacekstruski17 February 2020
It doesn't matter you've committed genocide, as long as you say sorry, it's all right.

No wonder there are school shootings if kids are taught that they can brush everything off with 'my bad' and no consequence.

Chinese Zootopia Rip-Off
jeremycrimsonfox15 February 2020
Spycies is another anthromorphic animal movie trying to bank off the success of Zootopia. A tale about a secret agent cat named Vladamir Willis who is set to an off-site platform security as discipline after a mission causes destruction, he meets a rat name Hector, a hacker who made the place messy. However, their future with the agency ends up on the line when the platform is broken into by henchmen of an evil genius and steal a substance from the area while they argue about a soap opera.

Yeah, so basically what we have here is a Chinese film that is basically rips off elements from Zootopia. The relationship between Vladamir and Hector is basically more uneasy than Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde's, as they basically bicker and argue about anything. Also, the story is messed up, with a third wheel, a bee girl name Mia, an actress who forces herself on the mission to help her learn about being a spy for an upcoming role, using her title of princess as an excuse to make them bring her, which is horrible, as she is only there to be annoying as she acts like a diva. The story is boring, and the film lacks the heart that Zootopia had. Also, there is some swearing in this.

A good original story
global-user15 February 2020
This movie is really good fun. It's great, safe family fare, with some interesting elements not usually found in Disney movies.

The plot involves some clever twists and turns, but continues to absorb, including some contemporary topics such as the environment.

I loved the inclusion of the rat / cat pair, and retro gaming & tech references. The voice actors did really well and helped to create some endearing characters.

People who compare this to Zootopia / Zootropolis are being quite unfair as similarities are very superficial and this story is certainly original enough to enjoy in its own right.

Go watch it, you won't be disappointed!

Surprisingly Good
jameshar_nmsu1 March 2020
Yes, it instantly it looks and feels like Zootopia. Surprisingly good graphics and story. Not for younger kids with some of the language.

Interesting storyline
gossettng31 March 2020
Warning: Spoilers
While there are elements within this movie that are controversial: interspecies relationships and accidental deaths with no sense of real retribution, the storyline is nicely paced and the voice acting is on point. What may not be issues for certain people and/or cultures may be turn offs for others. There are good elements such as personal redemption, friendship, and a higher purpose in life. It makes you stop and wonder about the choices you make and how it could possibly affect others, making you think before you take action not just vlubdly follow your own ambitions...

A copy of Zootopia, and a bad one too
0w08 March 2020
China... they do some things very good (like food, trains and building skyscrapers), but one thing they suck at, is copying things... This is one of those examples.

Where Zootopia is a 10/10 animation movie, this is only a 4/10. A poor attempt, with inferior animation, bad voice acting, bad 'jokes' and a predictable plot. Maybe they should stick to food, or just hire a better EVERYTHING next time they think about making a movie.

Arrest Everyone
nogodnomasters2 March 2020
Warning: Spoilers
Vladimir is a cat and a spy who has a lot of collateral damage. It is forced to team up with Hector, a techno-rat in order to recover a rare mineral. They take jobs at a hospital in order to find the bad guys.

There are animals in the film who don't take and are simply animals. The overall theme is stopping global warming. They don't blame anyone for it. There are some inter-species relationships that start to bloom between a cat and a rabbit and a rat and a bee. Not sure what the message is there. There is a twist that is bigger than what you might see in a film written by Steven Seagal.

You gotta be using a pram to enjoy this.
SlightlyMe3 March 2020
Dunno really what to say... animation great, as it should be 2019. Story: It's not so much as a bad story as a collection of completely pointless things, pointless characters, doing pointless things, for pointless reasons centered around a leading character.

I can only recommend this to someone not old enough to read recommendations.
