Third time watching.... such a great movie.

Another signature Wes Anderson piece. Intense internal emotions were elicited without the audience even noticing as the hard-to-swallow topics tackled in the movie were perfectly disguised under the curious and delightful delivery. A wonderful watch whether you want a laugh or want to think for days

Wes Anderson's impeccable visual style and colorful characters win over audiences once again in Moonrise Kingdom.

Peculiar. Cute. Beguiling. Innocent. This is the first Wes Anderson movie that I have seen in full, and I feel troubled. The 12-year-old female lead Kara Hayward loves stories that take a person dying for adventure into a new world full of seemingly infinite possibilities, only to discover how finite they really are. How metaphysical of Wes. He has the style, all right, and even better, he has the wit to pull off this story of prepubescent love written for the eyes of tired adults. Had there been a better explanation as to how our two main characters met, which is important to consider in the circumstances of living on such a small, isolated island and them being "emotionally disturbed," I would deem the plot to be flawless. That ultimately matters little in the adventure, for the film's strength rides more dependently on everything else -- the strangely skewed dialogue, the true-to-its-own-world performances, the colours, the landscapes. This movie is so pretty! How it must feel to see the world as if you knew everything you wanted in life, and you could get it. Bill Murray's character knows better. Bruce Willis' character knows better. Frances McDormand's character especially knows better. Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward do not need to know though, not now anyway.

One of Wes Anderson's best. Amazing characters, wonderful story, and stunning cinematography. Watch it. You're in for a treat.

No sé cómo calificar el imaginario de Wes Anderson. Quizá como cuentos tradicionales infantiles (con lo que implica de nada políticamente correctos, y'know what I mean) que se ríe de nuestras miserias de adultos.

Artistically beautiful, Moonrise Kingdom offers a different experience for the usual moviegoer. The characters are engaging but the plot development is disappointing..

Wes Anderson created a masterpiece that loves, the way humans deserve to be loved. It juxtaposes the magic of adolescents, and the coldness of adulthood- to the point where you wish you never grew up.

Don't know what to say, but I enjoyed it very much. It's funny, touching, sad, and quirky. Good stuff.

Definitely one of my all time favourite movies. Love the cinematography, the acting (and the actors), the music and the setting.

So much fun. First of all, it's beautiful. Those opening credits were incredible. The performances were fun. The dialogue was so unnatural, and it felt in just the right place for this movie. The kids were hilarious. Music amazing. So much Wes Anderson, and in this case you can't have too much of a good thing.

This movie was adorable and appropriate for all ages. Humorous and fun.

Wes Anderson films might get tiresome someday, but today is not that day.

A bit strange and artsy. It was pretty funny at parts. It's probably not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

What can I say--I just didn't find it that entertaining. The characters were a little too quirky and the dialogue a bit too artificial for believability, thus making me not care too much about what happened to them. And the comedy just wasn't laugh-out-loud funny. If you love Wes Anderson, you'll probably love this movie. But for me, extreme quirkiness alone does not a great film make.

Largely an ignorable movie that does not capture the viewers attention. No matter of big names involved in the film can save this piece of tripe.
August 15, 2016
It's well paced, well written, and well directed. It's perfect.

Really an exceptional film!

An intriguing Slice of Life film with great talent.
