Movie Info

When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him "Everest" and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.

  • For the first time in a while, DreamWorks seems to be trusting its filmmakers with a semi-original idea, rather than racing breathlessly to the finish line.

  • Jill Culton, who conceived the story and co-directed the film, was trained at Pixar and her work displays the Pixar trademark, a seamless blending of farce, wit, melancholy and the kind of reflectiveness that traverses the generational divide.

  • Abominable lacks the personality to distinguish it from superior animated films that cover most of the same ground.

  • The winning, warm nature of this China-set family film can't be denied, and for all its predictable elements, "Abominable" is still well worth the trip.

  • In the film's most moving scene, Yi plays a solo so powerful it summons rain, flowers, and the Coldplay hit "Fix You." For an aspiring blockbuster, that culture clash is the cash-grab holy trinity.
