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...

[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."

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.

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.

Frequently buries the lovely tale under the hyperactive excesses required to stretch this to feature length.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

While the plot is quite basic, there are characters that are funny enough to sustain the movie. [Full review in Spanish]

While it may not be the most original animated movie ever, Ferdinand differentiates itself with an interesting message about animal cruelty.

The platonic ideal of a formulaic 2010s animated children's movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
