Audience Reviews for Smallfoot

  • Aug 04, 2019
    Fun movie and one that deserves more attention in this tiresome Disney era of rebooting films. Smallfoot has a clever concept and it allows the film to develop in this universe before it switches to the more generic plot device. The cast is fun and without the typical cliché story beats, this might have been something very different. The opening song is fun and the overall style of the film is quite interesting and funny. Not without its flaws, still a very strong film that deserves more interest. 03/08/2019

    An animation for children primarily - with a surprise message (!) inside about peace, love and understanding. It's generically typical except for a song by Common mid-piece that reaches beyond the genre's limitations and the story itself. That sequence alone is worth the rest of the picture.

    Due purely to track record it's difficult to be excited for any animated movie not produced by Disney and/or Pixar and so, while there weren't exactly high expectations going into Smallfoot it more than surpassed how average I surmised it might be. The characters are charming (as is the famous voice cast, though I can't help but feel anyone could have voiced these characters whether a big name or not except for maybe Common), the animation is up to par with the new norm which is to say it's pretty fantastic, and much to my surprise there were a few genuinely catchy if not exactly memorable musical numbers thrown in for good measure. Like Warner Animation's infinitely re-watchable 2016 film, Storks, this will surely go underappreciated despite being an equally clever and creative little tale about questioning those things that define our behavior and our society despite having little to do with our present reality. Yeah, the easy target here is religion and the Bible given the story revolves around the validity of ancient texts, but the film isn't so much about challenging a system for the sake of stirring up trouble (Tatum's lead character, Migo, is genuinely conflicted about questioning anything in his comfortable existence), but more Smallfoot explores how the only way to constantly be improving upon our world and existence is to accept change and face reality rather than steering clear of a truth simply because it contradicts the firm beliefs of the hierarchy.
