Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family Film
I was looking forward to this newest animation from Dreamworks Studios and it hasn’t disappointed. It has a pleasant and entertaining enough narrative to keep the entire family quite captivated. The main two characters Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) were likable enough though I preferred the personality of Branch better 🙂 . I liked some of the various side characters in this movie such as Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) who farted glitter and Biggie (James Cordan) who was simply amazing 😛 . The movie is very bright and colourful which is a good thing plus I loved that the majority of the world looked fuzzy or made out of felt 😀 . I loved the beginning scene and how the story of Trolls vs. Bergens began 🙂 . It was a surprisingly dark opening and loved the dramatic escape for the Trolls. I liked that this continued (the feeling the Bergens would return) and I liked that film’s subplot (with Bridget voiced by Zooey Deschanel) slotted perfectly. However, as much as I loved that sweet solution to the Trolls problem, I can’t deny the edge of Cheesiness gets stronger the closer you get to the ending. I suppose I preferred the beginning into the middle then found the tale with Bergens (near the end) to be too cheesy for me 😛 . Thought the humour is good and the music is fabulous. All the songs were good but my favourites were Can’t Stop the Feeling, True Colours and Get Back up Again 😀 . Also I wish the romance between the two lead could have been clearer or stronger. Overall, great family movie, great songs and the Trolls look fabulous. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
