"Abominable" doesn't live down to its title, but it doesn't scale any summits, either.

There are plenty of worse ways to pass an hour and a half of viewing time -- you're just unlikely to want to do it twice.

Abominable" ends its journey with a shrug more than a sharp rallying cry. It's fine, but it's not a journey you'd necessarily want to repeat.

Despite a hilarious running gag of goofy Whooping Snakes constantly popping up, Abominable doesn't hold the attention of its intended audience very long.

There's something about the character design chosen by director and writer Jill Culton that doesn't really serve the story. They've made the young yeti into a cross between a slobbering St. Bernard, an albino pug, and polyvinyl chew toy.

Kids may sit with rapt attention watching the adventure unfold before their eyes in beautifully colored detail, but adults will see the deep flaws that separate this story from greatness.

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.

Where Abominable may fall down is in the nuts and bolts of charming your little ones. The dialogue is flat, the slapstick flabby.

Abominable certainly has a flair for color and light...the rest of the film is so emotionally vapid, predictable and unoriginal that I had a tough time caring about any of it.

It's very stale, very familiar, and you've seen it all before.

Kids might get swept up in the colorful imagery and the occasional potty humor that lands. But in the lens of some of Dreamworks finest, it would seem "Abominable" could use a little more soul searching.

As bland as its eponymous character. Worse, it's one long déjà vu experience of pre-fab whimsy and schmaltz whose greatest virtue is its very forgetablity.

[A] movie that has rich potential that it too often squanders in favor of routine cartoon antics.
September 27, 2019
Abominable has the ingredients to break free from being designated as just another disposable family-friendly animated feature, but they are buried so far down below that all that's left are the genre's standard annoyances and clichés
September 27, 2019
The simplicity of the premise puts more pressure on the animation, which is crisp and occasionally beautiful, but not especially imaginative in its design.
September 27, 2019
... the Chinese setting of "Abominable" seems perfunctory at best, chosen only for its relative proximity to the Himalayas.
September 27, 2019
Wastes the talents of competent animators on a slow, perfunctory story that tries to push all the right emotional buttons but ends up just drawing out the obvious.

[The] chase is given occasional life by Everest's ability to control nature ... but Abominable is just a routine and shallow adventure tale.
September 26, 2019
Inoffensive and forgettable, the kind of thing that parents can nap through while their kids spend half the time watching it and half the time fidgeting in their seats.
September 26, 2019
A colorful, innocuous piece of animated fluff that delivers nice messages without being at all special-in other words, a middle-grade kidflick.
