It seems that 'Ferdinand' wanted to compensate for the lack of strength of the central story with characters with a tendency to excess. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feels like a loosely collected series of cliches, celebrating those who don't fit the mold of whats around them but without bringing anything new to a tried and true theme.

Loud and raucous while staying gentle and sweet, the film has its heart in the right place and is one of the better releases from animation house Blue Sky.

The humor, especially the calming goat, was mostly good and overall it is enjoyable. The main problem is it feeling very played out and generic.

Ferdinand isn't the most sophisticated animated movie out there, but it doesn't really matter. It is loyal to its source material in the best way, filling out the narrative while still staying true to the spirit of the story.

On the surface, Ferdinand is a pleasant and easy film to watch, with colorful characters and plenty of laughs to entertain young and old. It holds tightly to the positive messages it is trying to send...

When things veer into heavy territory, comic relief quickly enters from stage left at just the right moment.

[Ferdinand] already knows who he is, so his role is more to help the other bulls work through what's essentially "Overcoming Toxic Masculinity For Kids."
October 28, 2018
A fairly flat, shallow experience for anyone over the age of 10. It's really a film you can plonk your kids in front of, while you find something else to do instead.

To hell with normative gender views! Let bulls sniff the field flowers if they want to. Accept them for who they are and not what they're expected to be.

No, it isn't the best-animated movie of the year by a long shot but for what its worth, it hits the emotion straight home by delivering a moving ending.

The laughs aren't aimed too often at the adults in the audience, making this one of those acceptable, if not enjoyable, trips to the theater.

...skip this cute-but-unnecessary feature and just watch the seven-minute Oscar-winning short from 1938 instead.

Come for the bull and stay for the goat, but be prepared to get hit in the feels.

It has plenty of energy to keep kids chuckling, although grown-ups may find it rather uneven.
April 23, 2018
The now-glossier cartoon succeeds in its very roundabout way of telling its tale. Ferdinand inspires young viewers to be comfortable in their own skin even amid societal expectations.
April 19, 2018
As a film, Ferdinand doesn't reinvent the wheel, but, like its titular character, it may be simplistic but it's also solid and very sweet.
March 22, 2018
Frequently buries the lovely tale under the hyperactive excesses required to stretch this to feature length.
February 19, 2018
Some hyper-energetic characters manage to inject some pizazz, and the action scenes are frantic enough to hold the attention of viewers of all ages.

'Ferdinand' is enjoyable - and that's no bull.
