Mr Fox truly is Fantastic

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.
