Leap! Reviews

March 21, 2019
Heavy-handed, hideous and humorless, the talented supporting voice cast can't do much with this tripe that even the little kids in the target audience will assuredly rip to shreds on the way home.

Leap is a European animated film that will satisfy its target demographic of little girls dreaming of being a ballerina.
December 20, 2018
It's a formulaic underdog story that, while mostly tiresome and bland, could prove to inspire some of the budding dreamers who watch it.
January 25, 2018
At least the ultimate message is a positive one, and the villains get their comeuppance, but this is rough stuff, indeed.
November 1, 2017
The Weinsteins' latest animation is a faux pas de deux.
September 2, 2017
Inconsistent, often anachronistic and barely functional animated feature, aimed at pre-teens. Wait for the DVD.
August 31, 2017
The final product just isn't strong enough to share the stage with the kind of animated heavyweights that will justify movie tickets for all the kids.

Leap! wants to be a grand jeté, but it's stuck in first position.
August 31, 2017
The well-chosen voice cast helps make this a fairly engaging tale, even though the film is riddled with a wealth of head-scratching anachronistic errors.
August 30, 2017
It's an insipid film, to the surprise of, I hope, absolutely nobody.
August 25, 2017
The result is a sort of Flashdance for the Teletubbies set, not as obnoxiously atrocious as The Nut Job 2 (let's hope that record stands for a while), but really no better.
August 25, 2017
A film that doesn't even earn the punctuation it forces upon its audience.
August 25, 2017
The French animated adventure Leap! is at turns stupendous and insufferable, the film never showing enough faith in its audience in order for the lovely little scenario of resilience and fortitude at the heart of things to ever resonate . . .
August 25, 2017
Technology has reached the point where lower-budgeted CGI films can at least look better than video games, but Leap! still suffers from stiff motion and muted facial expressions. Worse, it has terribly anonymous design.
August 25, 2017
More of a dunce movie than a dance movie.
August 25, 2017
Leap! is routine and dull.
August 24, 2017
Even the moments of grace are eventually stained by the bodily functions humor and flurry of pratfalls that are always around the corner.
August 24, 2017
So many haphazard elements to "Leap!" that it never comes together.
August 24, 2017
"Leap!" would be amiable if a bit dull if not for a crucial misjudgment about the main character's choices and completely unfounded total changes of personality.
August 24, 2017
The script is brimming with half-baked ideas, drilling far too much fluffy nonsense about achieving one's dreams into our skulls before the film crosses the 10-minute mark.
