Just enough to keep restless kiddies from wandering off into the wilds.

Khumba, despite being resoundingly terrible, will probably appeal to children in the same way that a Lucky Charms commercial or an inflatable bouncy castle would.

Character movement occasionally has a stiff, disconnected quality, but the animators distinguish themselves with the weathered richness of their geographically unmistakable setting.

Real-life nature is presented as more exotic, detailed and deeply felt than any fantasy world.

When this South African animated adventure embraces its unique setting and characters, it's visually stunning and a lot of fun.

The kids' movie market is crowded with superior specimens; they'll eat Khumba alive.

A dearth of new and interesting ideas characterises this stock animated caper with furry critters a-plenty.

Khumba isn't original - it's indebted in particular to The Lion King and Madagascar - but younger kids should enjoy the colourful safari.

If it were a little worse then it might offer some mindless good fun.

Lovely animation and an abundance of comic relief should keep the tots engaged but this is not exactly The Lion King.

There's a pretty score of harmonic, Isicathamiya-influenced music, but this is a tedious time-killer for those desperate to keep kids occupied.

April 10, 2014 Full Review Source: Guardian

A sweet and engaging story about bravery with a wise 'mother knows best' caveat.

April 10, 2014 Full Review Source: HeyUGuys

This bright and frothy animated animal romp may well be rather familiar, but it still offers plenty of fun and enjoyment for the young ones.

Everything is leftovers, from the lazy casting of dependable but typecast stars (Liam Neeson, Steve Buscemi), to a quest structure Robert McKee would dismiss as formulaic.

A flavourless concoction that tries to tap into the storytelling of a Madagascar or Lion King but falls well short of the humour and pathos of either.

Fun Lion King-like zebra adventure with some name-calling.

March 13, 2014 Full Review Source: Common Sense Media

"Khumba" is essentially cut-and-paste cinema. The film's creators borrow a lot from the "Madagascar" and "Ice Age" films, and while that doesn't sound that bad, "Khumba" is disastrously uninspired.
