Almost every set or action or line of dialogue feels like the substandard equivalent of something you've seen or heard being done better elsewhere.

... a weak script, with poor, ugly animations... [Full review in Spanish]

Young kids and their adult parents are the only people who'll be able to find some value to The Emoji Movie. Anyone else will probably just smash their smartphone in a bout of raging frustration.

Also last but not least, our sympathies for Patrick Stewart, who lends his voice to the poop emoji. Yes, you heard that right.

The script is thin and derivative, and much of the humour falls flat.

Although this is clearly attempting to emulate The Lego Movie with its knowing tone, it's remains a nakedly hollow exercise all throughout. Less fun than a break-up text.

80-plus minutes of excruciating mental torture.

The Emoji Movie certainly ain't getting a positive review from me. But it never made me actually angry...

The design is bright and there are in-jokes for the emoji users among parents, but even with his history of great voice work (see Big Hero 6) Miller sounds like he's throwing his lines into a void.

Sad to look at and joyless to watch, there's nothing on offer here for anyone but the least-demanding child.

What a fine, funny, family-friendly film The Emoji Movie is.
September 13, 2017
Come back, The Angry Birds Movie, you 2016 cartoon calamity! Not only is all forgiven. You are a paragon of taste, restraint and higher learning when compared to this year's app-trocity leaping from phone screen to big screen.

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

There is nothing new under the sun in The Emoji Movie; unoriginal characters and a plot that only makes use of this new communication form to make something banal and superfluous. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 29, 2017
Plotless, joyless and cash-grabbing, The Emoji Movie deserves the brunt of our wrath because it showcases everything wrong with Hollywood.
August 24, 2017
This film is almost like spending the day in the phone looking at social networks: a waste of time. [Full review in Spanish]
August 18, 2017
A catalog of situations that don't conform a unified corpus and that only tries, perhaps like the ephemeral of the messages that contain emojis, its fast forgetfulness. [Full review in Spanish]
August 17, 2017
To put it in the film's own terms, The Emoji Movie is one big pile of Patrick Stewart.
August 11, 2017
A comedy that tries to tune with these times, but that will not remain precisely in the history of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]

This is ... a horrible intention hidden (badly) behind a piece of entertainment, a corporate meeting translated into a film, only it isn't a film, it's an advert, a gathering of flies feasting on the wounded corpse of art and culture.
