Critic Reviews for Fantastic Mr. Fox
Visually, the movie is a wonder, with its profusion of detail and exquisitely focussed "performances" by the figurines, whom Anderson frames in images as precisely composed as those in his live-action work.
Sometimes too clever by half, the film, replete with in-jokes, may in some ways work better for adults. Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwarztman also provide adept voice work.
If Fantastic Mr Fox feels like Anderson's freshest film since Rushmore, that can only be due to the animation. Beneath those tactile textures, there's nothing you could strictly call fantastic.
Fantastic Mr. Fox is gorgeous and fanciful, with a glorious stop-motion animation style of its own.
Audience Reviews for Fantastic Mr. Fox
Cute movie and def different after all the cgi movies to come out with something new.
A visually stunning animation that dazzles us at every second especially because of the amazing attention that it pays to details, and the result is a delightful fun for all ages, with a clever, witty plot, great voicing and Wes Anderson's trademark sense of humor.
innovative and fun, wes andersons animated film is destined to become a classic. the voice acting was superb and the story was clever, anderson made great decisions on the right way to render the beloved source material to film. a wonderful film.
