The animals embarking two-by-two are mostly parents and kids - which doesn't bode well for the future of the species.
But it is still a solid family film, and definitely worth your time and money if you're a parent and want to do something fun with your children.
Two By Two is more fun than Russell Crowe's Noah, but if you miss this it's not the end of the world.
It might work for little kids, but that doesn't justify the lackluster and humorless script. [Full review in Spanish]
An interesting take on the classical story, and the animals that star in it are cute enough. [Full review in Spanish]
This bland animated Euro-pudding has little to offend and even less to excite as it follows its formulaic journey toward a communal group-hug.
This spectacularly ill-conceived movie is what happens when a cheap ripoff cannot even rise to the level of crass Hollywood junk.
A European animated feature that brings elements of Ice Age and Finding Nemo to the tale of Noah and the ark.
A German-made kids' movie, Two by Two is cheery, innocuous fare, sentimental but with some spirited chases and slapstick sequences.
Although derivative, Two by Two is bright, breezy, fast-paced fun that will captivate younger kids without offering much for accompanying adults.
Orange and blue creatures with furry beaks, fond of giving hugs and making cosy homes, nestrians are insufferable.
Ready the bargain bins.
For a film centered around one of the most 'memorable' events in the bible, this film is surprisingly non-religious. Which is a good thing, because I hate to imagine how this film would've been like if it decided to preach to someone who doesn't believe any of that stuff. And that's the problem with these religious films, they're sort of preaching to the choir by giving them a easy to digest story that refuses to ask any questions regarding the complexities of faith. And that's fine, there's an audience for that, but it's a niche one. So this film going the non-religious route was a positive move to me, even though the English version of the film cast a christian pop artist to voice of the characters. While there's certain elements of the film that are really kiddy, this is a surprisingly decent movie. It's just that when I watch these 'unknown' CG kids' movies, there seems to be a part of them that really talks down to kids or they use too many cutesy elements and it just makes me wanna puke sometimes. Again, this movie has some of that, I won't deny it, but it's got some solid and colorful animation and the film does, legitimately, have some fun moments. The only reason Martin Sheen is even in this movie is so they can have someone with some sort of name value to a mainstream audience. And I say this because his character comprises maybe, let's say, like 15% of the movie. That might also be a generous number to be honest, he's barely in the movie, but if you look at the poster, on Amazon at least, Martin Sheen's name is the first one you see. This was clearly just a paycheck to Sheen and you can hear it from his performance. A complete contrast to his voice acting in Wrinkles. But that's neither here nor there. The voice acting isn't really what one would call great, but at least, outside of some scenes, it doesn't really seem to speak down to kids and treat them like they're stupid. I don't mean to suggest that this film, in any way, competes with Pixar's or DreamWorks' best films, but at the very least its approach resembles that more than a stupid kids' movie. This might not actually be saying a lot, but this might be one of the better movies of this type that I've seen. Which isn't saying much, of course, when I don't even think the movie is good. I think that's more of a testament to how bad some of these other films are. The House of Magic is, probably, the only good one. That I recall at this moment at least. I say it resembles more of a Pixar or DreamWorks movie, but it in no way competes with them in terms of quality and attention to detail. At least the really great ones. This film is better than Cars 2, Shark Tale or Shrek 3, which are some of the worst the genre has to offer and all were made by Pixar and DreamWorks. There's even the hand-drawn credits, which is a cliche of these films at this point. Can't really complain much about this movie, I mean it's not good, but it's a perfectly acceptable diversion. It's a good family movie if you want something harmless. Better than I would've anticipated.
