Remember when you brought your child to see an animated movie just to make him happy? Well now, go check out Fantastic Mr Fox and make yourself happy.
I saw this film on a Wednesday night at the 8pm show. The theater was full, but there was no children. In fact, I didn’t spot anyone who looked under 18 in there!
You can’t deny, Mr Fox is a children’s story. In fact, the movie was made out of a 1970 children’s book written by Roald Dahl. So what exaclty would attract you adults to such a film?
Well first off, Fantastic Mr. Fox might take you back to their childhood memories of bedtime stories. But it’s not only that. It’s also a wonderfull piece of stop-motion animation and the action moves along perfectly enough to keep you interested every minute. 87 minutes almost feels too short. The humour leaves you with a smile on your face at the end of every scene and the music sounds just great.
There are many reasons why I think Fantastic Mr Fox is worth it. Here are 3 of them:
– Wes Anderson. He keeps on impressing with his creativity.
– The Cast. George Clooney gives a voice to Mr Fantastic. It fits perfectly. Along with him: Meryl Streep and Bill Muray…
– The animation. Never have I enjoyed as much such a movie with talking animals.
