Should appeal to precocious children... Adults may find it as derivative and simplistic as the steampunk aesthetic to which it's indebted, but for a gateway to more resonant cinema and literature, you could do worse.

Smart, clever, ceaselessly dazzling steampunk, drawn entirely from French visual sources, about a family of scientists obsessed with longevity from the pen of artist Jacques Tardi, set in an alternate Paris, where the Industrial Revolution never happened.

April and the Extraordinary World is really, really weird. It's also really, really great,

By the time the film finally brings the heroes face to face with the villains, these two hours are beginning to feel more like three.

"April" is an imaginative, gorgeously animated sci-fi steampunk adventure with an endless number of cool things to look at and to think about.

A fine animated film

"April and the Extraordinary World" is a visual delight, an animated French steampunk adventure that is smart, exciting and wonderfully weird.

It's an oddball animated picture, but often wonderfully so.

It cavalierly toys with the history of the mechanized world, making you thankful we have luxuries like cars and electricity. But it also makes an equally solid argument that it's those luxuries we depend on that are choking the life out of our planet.

In truth, the story is practically beside the point with all the spectacular visuals.

A delightfully deranged steampunk adventure.

You miss out on this and you miss out on something entirely, amazingly original and jaw-droppingly entertaining. C'est magnifique!

Fun, fast-paced French film d'animation that manages to keep its ideas from getting lost amid the steampunk aesthetics, frequent chases, and occasional explosions.

If you're a steampunk fan, by all means go. Just don't expect a classic.

It's a two-dimensional world on the screen, but the imagination at work is definitely in three dimensions.

The film, which is like Jules Verne crossed with Tintin, offers a thoughtful revisionist history within its modern science fiction....a cautionary global climate change message within a grand adventure.

April And The Extraordinary World is a heart-warming animation that's fit to burst with all the joy that it brings.
April 1, 2016
While the film tells a rollicking, sometimes barbed story about oppressive governments, secret labs, selfishness, and the point where science meets ethics, it's the world-building that really delights.

I would highly, highly recommend seeking it out if you can. It's a journey to a completely different version of Earth and a science fiction adventure that will still be timeless in a further 70 years
