Movie Info

As co-helmed by Manuel Sicilia and Raul Garcia, this CG-animated, Spanish-language children's adventure (translated as The Missing Lynx: Paws on the Run for its release in English-speaking countries) originated via the production efforts of Antonio Banderas, though his is not one of the voices on display. The premise concerns a millionaire who becomes obsessed with the idea of constructing a new Noah's Ark - and hires a hunter to kidnap untoward numbers of animals to make this happen. The film follows the animals amid their valiant attempt to escape from the hunter's clutches, foil his nefarious plans, and free their captured friends.

It's a dispiriting picture that's content to coast on moldy formula and threadbare technical achievements to entertain. Your kids deserve better.

Action-packed endangered species story, with potty humor.

Audience Reviews for El Lince Perdido (Missing Lynx)

Looks like we got a new lynx An eccentric millionaire believes a major storm is coming and he needs to build a ship to save civilization, similar to Noah's Arc. The animals captured, including a lynx that is used to being captured and escaping, plan to escape plan from the boat. Initially, the lynx escapes to freedom; unfortunately, he falls in love with the female lynx on the boat and decides to try to break back into the boat and rescue her. "In every prison there is a bloke that can get you anything." Raul Garcia, who worked on Aladdin, Tarzan, Hercules, Pocahontas, The Lion King, The Land Before Time, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, delivers The Missing Lynx in his directorial debut. The storyline for this movie is a bit disappointing and the characters were not as easy to relate to as most cartoon movies; however, I did enjoy the quality of the animation. "Isn't that the lynx from last week?" I came across this film while flicking through movies for my daughter to watch on Netflix. It reminded me of Rango (which I still haven't seen yet ?). I never really was into this film. I didn't feel like the story gave me much to hold my interest. Overall, your children may enjoy this film, but there are plenty of animated films more worth their time. "I was born to be a father." Grade: C

A very unique little film about a "jinxed" lynx named Felix (my, weren't we creative in the naming department!) and his far-out misadventures in yet another environ-mental exercise of good animals vs. "evil" humans. Given, the story does exercise the imagination, and the mean hunter DOES end up with a bad fear of cats! (HEE HEE). Still, I must say, if you wish to keep this neat little film fresh in your hearts, see it only once. This is one that won't improve with repeated viewings

Poor animation, cliched and annoying characters, pointless story and just a totally made for young children type of film.
