If you have younger children who have not yet been exposed to Smurfs culture, this would be an excellent jumping-in point.

The overall feel is a throwback to those days back in the 1980s when I could grab some cereal and watch tv while the rest of the house was still sleeping.

[Smurfs: The Lost Village] is a film that's family-friendly as far as that goes, but ultimately of little interest to anyone other than young children and Smurf completists.

You could definitely do worse with a rental, and unless you just adamantly hate all things Smurf, be open to having it for a movie night with the family.

While it is an improvement over the previous two films, it still feels rather bloated and pointless.

The reality is that Smurfs: The Lost Village feels like a movie intended to be watched by a toddler on an iPad while their parents go about whatever business is required of them.

Proof that no matter how pretty something looks, it's never good to revive the dead horse you've already beaten into the ground.

In the end, "Smurfs: The Lost Village," while not a great movie, isn't nearly as mediocre as it could easily have been.

In an age where infusing revived properties with progressive ideals has become a fad, The Lost Village is mostly fluff with some level of relevance underneath all the hues and hubris.

All things considered, Smurfs: The Lost Village isn't the staggeringly self-aware scrapper you might've held out for, but honestly, how many actually expected that?

This movie plays like the classic Smurfs...It feels like the true, blue Smufs. Even all the subtle things look how they were drawn in the original and the comics.

If only the filmmakers decided to be more ambitious and plant a few things for older family members to enjoy . . . or work with a familiar narrative framework so part of the fun is watching the variation unfold.

While the movie has more in common with the eighties animated television series, it disappointingly turns into more of a conventional journey than where it begins.

You may just zone out in this very ordinary story that has very little to offer adults.

It's strange as can be but slightly more fun than it sounds.

The movie made me realise how much I miss the childlike innocence of cartoon characters.

All I know is that I cannot complain this time about a Smurf movie being a vehicle for misogyny or a direct highway to the toy store. On the other hand, the whole franchise is product placement.
