Smurfs: The Lost Village: Film Review – They Are Back

Verdict: The film is bound to leave you in a blue mood.

When the Smurfs were introduced back in 2011, the adorable blue creatures impressed the audiences with their uniqueness and the novelty of what they brought to the screen. They soon became popular with their Smurf-inspired merchandise, comics and a second film in their kitty. The tiny blue Smurfs are back in Smurfs: The Lost village, the latest installment featuring them on an exciting adventure-filled journey.The four friends Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Hefty (Joe Manganiello), Brainy (Danny Pudi) and Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) embark on a journey through the forbidden forest by following a secret map. As they strive to stop Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) from using the Smurfs for his evil intentions, their venture into the forbidden forest is filled with magical creatures and the revelation of a secret village.

The film features most of the original characters like Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin) and the evil villain Gargamel. The filmmakers have made a poor attempt to keep the story going as it fails to relive the original magic the Smurfs brought to the screens and we hoped they'd stopped after the original. The dialogues are stale and poorly written and the addition of popular pop songs in the background doesn't really help. While the film lacks a compelling storyline that will keep the adults hooked, it will definitely entertain the young who are bound to be mesmerised with the adventurous smurfs and their magical and trippy journey.

The plus points are the film's CGI and animation that have managed to bring the fun and colourful smurf universe to life. The different smurfs with their unique personalities still manage to bring a smile to your face. The voiceovers are pretty on point and help bring to light every smurf's character and Julia Roberts as Smurfwillow is hard to miss. While the film on its own ticks all the right boxes, it falls short when compared with other recent animated feature films that have left us spellbound.   

Why You Should Watch This Movie:

Smurfs: The Lost Village takes the characters of the smurf universe ahead and if you're looking for an entertaining animated feature film to take your children for, this one will definitely not disappoint the kids.
