Critic Reviews for A Monster in Paris
'A Monster in Paris' borrows some of its tics from silent cinema, but it also reaches out to films such as 'Frankenstein', 'Phantom of the Opera', 'The Fly' and 'King Kong' for inspiration.
This is almost more for adults than children, who may not appreciate the richly coloured animation, the lovely period-style music or the gentle storyline that relies on warm humour rather than out-and-out laughs.
It's quaint, a little rustic but magical in its own way.
French monster movie encourages looking past the surface.
proves there is life beyond the Hollywood hit machine and the omnipresent House of Mouse
Audience Reviews for A Monster in Paris
This is very sweet and beautifully animated, not sure why it was so under the radar...
I think I liked this movie far more than the rating implies. It's a movie that wear its influences on its sleeve, from the silent film influences to old monster movies. I think the movie pays fitting tribute to the movies that influenced it, while still creating its own entertaining little story. I do think the movie does have some inconsistencies as far as its comedy goes but I think it is a heartfelt and sweet film. I think there's also some problems with the presentation of some of the characters. I think the movie could've spent a little more time developing its characters rather than just thrusting them right into the 'story' right from the start. But still, that's a minor complaint, because I do think the movie overcomes that because it is so lively and it has an entertaining tone. And, much unlike The Hole, this film can also be entertaining to adults and not just the kids, especially the film buffs that are into silent and old monster films. Of course the animation isn't outstanding, it doesn't have that polish that most people are used to, but I still think it's very good given the budget. Especially the animation for the musical performances, the dancing and whatnot, does look excellent. The voice acting is more than solid, if not particularly outstanding. So yes, I really liked this movie a lot. It doesn't get a better rating because it does lack a little extra something, but it's a 'very good' good movie. This is a fun family film.
Loved this animation. Really recommend everyone to watch. Great movie to watch with your family.
