Moonrise Kingodom is a whimsical tale of these kids that decide to escape their homes and make a new home with one another. I heard great things from this movie; I was expecting a great movie. I liked the movie, but I didn't love it. I think my expectations of the film were too high. I saw it in number four, I think, for the best movies of 2012 by one of my favorite "youtubers" by the name YMS. I think he has a good eye for movies. So that had something to do with my high expectations. But the movie isn't bad. It's actually really good. The movie is colorful, whimsical, and light hearted. I liked the tone; I have not seen this tone in a movie for a while. The performances are great; having the kids be played by unknowns was a great idea because. I see the character I don't see the actor, because I don't know any of them. Bill Murray is great as always. Bruce Willis is not phoning it in this movie, which he hasn't done in a while. Ed Norton is great as the scout captain. It was directed well, Wes Anderson really cared about this movie. The cartoon feel to the movie worked well. It is very imaginative. I was invested in the story. The music worked well, there is this scene were they have this really dramatic music and have slow motion and it is awesome, my favorite scene of the movie. My problems with the movie, the two main kids who are suppose to be in love, the chemistry was fine, but I don't know if they are the same age, but the guy looks way younger than the girl, which bugged me. There was a lot of style in the movie which I liked, but there was not much of a plot. I liked the movie; I would recommend it to anyone. Watch it and you might love it more than I did.
