Critic Reviews for Smurfs: The Lost Village
It's a candy-coated sugar rush, though its mind-numbing repetitiveness (and haphazardly-written screenplay) will likely test even the most patient parent.
The acknowledgment that it is aiming solely for the kiddie audience this time around at least makes it slightly more palatable than its predecessors.
There are plenty of ambitious set pieces boasting visual ingenuity, and the witty, perceptive script includes well-constructed subtext and lessons about breaking free from patriarchal norms and the benefits of learning about different cultures.
Asbury sticks to the basics, with obvious Saturday morning-style fare based on groaners and pratfalls about the earnest little creatures with self-defining names like Nosey, Grouchy and Jokey.
Audience Reviews for Smurfs: The Lost Village
Hey guys, don't be mad over another Smurfs movie. This film brings back the wonderful joy of the adaption that calls this film's attention and it's even better the why-do-you-think-this-was-a-great-idea-at-all live-action/animated Smurfs movies. Even if this is so, don't be completely expecting a great film from here to the movie's complete end (which is supposed to be the credits that follows the film). Smurfs: The Lost Village is possibly one of the best Smurfs films you could receive in this decade and for now even with its horrid mistakes they kept from the previous Smurfs films. I mean, at least you have someone to thank for the removal of the real world in the world of Smurfs. Watch if you completely dare, but don't expect this one to be winning an award or even being nominated for one whatsoever. I can't say all the mistakes this film has because that's spoiling it and it's not fun when you spoil the best parts of a film. To end this with a short diagram, Smurfs: The Lost Village is a huge improvement but the huge in the improvement is not present due to the many mistakes this film contains.
