Despite the generic feel of the movie, the characters elevate the material further than it should really go.

Please, regardless of whether you have children in tow, see this beautiful movie about music and the magic it creates. What a gorgeous film.

Heart-warming and visually ravishing, new animated adventure Abominable may not boast the most original concept but it's very big on charm.
October 15, 2019
Stunning visuals and a great case combined with a well told story make Abominable one of the best animated films released so far this year.​
October 15, 2019
A fairly standard story yields surprisingly charming results in Abominable, a delightful animated outing.

Early on, it's difficult to get past the fact that, for a cartoon story set in China, all the young characters have semi-Westernised features and talk with American accents. But slowly the strange magic of this box-office hit begins to shine through...

[T]hough the plot sticks to trite contours, Jill Culton's film is a good bet for young children.

Yet the Miyazaki-style magic and gentle subversion of Jill Culton's film stops it from feeling like an extended tourist promo. The 12ft dandelions are a delight.

You will feel like you have been on a wonderful yet slightly trippy tour of China!

The humor is delightfully rude and the abominable snowman is a big cuddly charmer.

The central relationship here is not dissimilar to the one in How to Train Your Dragon, (also produced by DreamWorks Animation) but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
October 14, 2019
Nevertheless, it's intermittently very entertaining and, for once, here's a film where the fact it doesn't live up to its title is a plus point.

A stunning movie led by a stellar performance from Chloe Bennet, Abominable is an absolute blast with heaps of beautiful visuals and plenty of heart.
October 13, 2019
Lovely animation and gentle, kid-pitched life lessons can't quite overcome the familiar feel of this E.T. retread, nor the forced sense of wonder that is more convenient crutch than anything organic.
October 12, 2019
Abominable isn't a transcendent animated journey, but it effectively hits a series of sweet notes, chugging right along and coasting off the beauty of its designs and the sheer cuteness of its main fantastical creation.

A blandly-charming, occasionally-thrilling animation...but I wanted a little bit more. Perfectly fine...
October 11, 2019
an irresistible avalanche of charm, fun and excitement

A little bit ET, a little bit Spirited Away, a little bit Jurassic Park, the film offsets the familiarity of its story with some imaginative set pieces and beautifully rendered details that help bring its Asian settings to life.

Here's a defanged, declawed yeti in an animation whose every beat, character and narrative component feels as if it has been algorithmically tested for commercial safety by a computer programme.

A familiar tale, beautifully told. Who wouldn't be delighted by Everest the yeti -- the friendliest, fluffiest mythical monster you could ever hope to meet.
