If I'm not dreaming, I've just seen one of the boldest mainstream American movies in ages.

The Emoji Movie is not just a critical flop, but also a metaphor for a Hollywood that is struggling to find the line between branding that audiences love and branding that audiences resent.

This is just a boilerplate animation, zestless, pointless.

Not only does this film hate its very subject matter, it's also the most hideous example of product placement in cinematic history.

It would be hard to forgive The Emoji Movie its "meh" plotline and the fact that it is literally one giant ad for apps, but its most unforgivable sin is that it perpetuates the notion that emojis are childish.

Please, never again.

It's not good, not even acceptable, but it's neither that terrible as I was expecting. [Full Review in Spanish]

It is a bad movie and will turn your children's brains into Patrick Stewart's character.

Almost shamelessly a second-rate version of Wreck-It Ralph.
April 16, 2019
It's difficult to compete with the similar - and superior - concepts explored in Inside Out and Wreck-It Ralph, and the oft-travelled "be true to yourself" moral of the story is, well, meh.

The story is downright nonsensical.

You know you are in the middle of something cynical when the most interesting character in a cartoon is a walking digital hand whining about no longer being popular.

Despite a talented voice cast, the film can't escape its baseline mediocrity. It's little more than an 86-minute branding exercise.

In the end, there is no reason to give your money to The Emoji Movie.

This movie is, like the 'meh' emoji, kinda boring, sorta funny, and totally pointless.

"I've seen worse...but I've seen a LOT better." I'll stand by that ... (It has) decent animation and other things, but the film left me meh.

Dissing cheery children's films can feel a bit like kicking a kitten and we all know how that would go down on social media, even in animated form. But sadly this, while not as irredeemably, horribly awful as I was expecting, is still pretty rubbish.

This is more than a flop - it is an unmitigated cinematic disaster that deserves to be mercilessly beaten in a brutal, bloody fashion.
October 17, 2018
The Emoji Movie is cynical, dull, exhausting, soulless, joyless, pointless, and never, ever funny. But on the other hand, I enjoy the faces of disappointed children, so for me the whole experience was really kind of a wash.

This is a movie that should not have been made.
