Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, although very pleasing to the eyes fails to deliver much else.
I'll start off with the positives. First off, the animation is spectacular! Very colorful and nice to look at. Filled with a lot of nice vibrant colors. Also, the 3D wasn't that bad either. And lastly, the voice acting is pretty good. All the actors in the film do a great job with the material they're given.
I understand this is a kids film. But this film fails to entertain kids and adults at the same time. I didn't laugh once in this film. Admittedly, I smiled a handful of times and let out an occasional "Aww". But for the majority of the film I was pretty bored and uninterested. Which leds me into the story, this film is incredibly predictable (which granted most kids films are). But in this film it's just so blatant. The antagonist of the film reminded me of the same on in "Up". In fact, it's almost the same film.
Overall, I didn't like this film. And I honestly can't see anyone under the age of 10 liking this movie. Hopefully you enjoyed this review, it'd mean a lot. Thanks!
