Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
An ambitious, serious but not particularly stimulating musical feature that unconvincingly attempts to graft warm and cuddly family-film motifs onto turbulent aspects of modern history and mythology.
Having something for everyone seems to be a driving force for this film.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Judging from their voices, about as close to Europe as most of these characters have ever gotten is probably Fresno.
Basically reduces the Russian Revolution to a big kaboodle of cuteness, which may give kids the wrong impression of what actually happened.
| Original Score: C-
While the movie is visually stunning, the characterizations and music are a bit weak.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Unfortunately, in the company of such cinematic royalty as "The Little Mermaid," "Pocahontas" and "The Lion King," "Anastasia," like the real-life woman who inspired it, seems like a pretender rather than a contender.
Frankly, even with the extra money, Bluth's team doesn't have the pizzazz of Disney.
A promising launch for Fox's new animation studio, which has declared war on Disney.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The whole process of watching Anastasia is a thoroughly enjoyable one, and it proves that any studio willing to put forth the time, money, and effort can match Disney.
| Original Score: 4/5
Beautiful, not factual depiction of missing Russian duchess.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's Bluth and company's skill as artists, as well as some of the better celebrity voice casting in an animated movie of the 1990s, that give Anastasia its merit.
| Original Score: 7/10
A charming little movie, nothing to write home about but a perfectly acceptable way to while away a rainy Sunday afternoon with the child, or children, in your life.
| Original Score: 3/5
I have nothing but superlatives for this, a most phenomenal film.
| Original Score: 5/5
