Critic Reviews for El Lince Perdido (Missing Lynx)
It's a dispiriting picture that's content to coast on moldy formula and threadbare technical achievements to entertain. Your kids deserve better.
Audience Reviews for El Lince Perdido (Missing Lynx)
Poor animation, cliched and annoying characters, pointless story and just a totally made for young children type of film.
Looks like we got a new lynx
An eccentric millionaire believes a major storm is coming and he needs to build a ship to save civilization, similar to Noah's Arc. The animals captured, including a lynx that is used to being captured and escaping, plan to escape plan from the boat. Initially, the lynx escapes to freedom; unfortunately, he falls in love with the female lynx on the boat and decides to try to break back into the boat and rescue her.
"In every prison there is a bloke that can get you anything."
Raul Garcia, who worked on Aladdin, Tarzan, Hercules, Pocahontas, The Lion King, The Land Before Time, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, delivers The Missing Lynx in his directorial debut. The storyline for this movie is a bit disappointing and the characters were not as easy to relate to as most cartoon movies; however, I did enjoy the quality of the animation.
"Isn't that the lynx from last week?"
I came across this film while flicking through movies for my daughter to watch on Netflix. It reminded me of Rango (which I still haven't seen yet ?). I never really was into this film. I didn't feel like the story gave me much to hold my interest. Overall, your children may enjoy this film, but there are plenty of animated films more worth their time.
"I was born to be a father."
A very unique little film about a "jinxed" lynx named Felix (my, weren't we creative in the naming department!) and his far-out misadventures in yet another environ-mental exercise of good animals vs. "evil" humans. Given, the story does exercise the imagination, and the mean hunter DOES end up with a bad fear of cats! (HEE HEE).
Still, I must say, if you wish to keep this neat little film fresh in your hearts, see it only once. This is one that won't improve with repeated viewings
