During the last 10-15 years animated movies have gone from simple kids' flicks to excellent films that can easily stand on the same level as some of the best live action films to ever hit the big screen. So, when an average animated film comes out it really stands out. Not in a good way.
SMALLFOOT is an average animated film.
The animation is okay, the story is species-flipped, but still formulaic and simplistic, the music is fun, but not great, and the characters are flat. My eight year old daughter thought it was okay, but hasn't mentioned a thing about it since we saw it several days ago. My six year old daughter told me it was boring and she didn't like it.
There are a lot of snow-bound animated flicks. On a scale from NORM OF THE NORTH to FROZEN I would have to say this is a lot closer to NORM than it needed to be and no where near as good as FROZEN is.
There are still a few more films for kids coming out this year. Save your money on this one and let's all hope that the others are better.
