The Emoji Movie Reviews

August 11, 2017
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.
August 11, 2017
With its relatively brief running time of 85 minutes, The Emoji Movie provides passable entertainment for the children.
August 11, 2017
From its cringey premise, there was little hope that The Emoji Movie would be anything but awful. The premonition is correct.
August 11, 2017
One of the worst films of the year. It's the poop emoji personified.
August 11, 2017
In its tv animation of the 80s and its incongruities of style, perhaps reflects the strange present that we are living better than Pixar and its first level competitors. [Full review in Spanish]

The animation is candy-colorful, the pop-music soundtrack is catchy and the dopey puns almost pass for wit. On the whole, there are worse ways to waste 86 minutes.
August 10, 2017
Not just bad, but it's offensively boring, and tedious.
August 10, 2017
The audience is paying to be subjected to all this free advertising. Shouldn't that be the other way round?
August 9, 2017
An embarrassing exercise in advertising. Insert poop emoji here. [Full review in Spanish]

Let's hope this isn't the future of animated features.
August 8, 2017
Mind-numbing cinematic malware - a total time-waster!
August 7, 2017
An one-hour and twenty-minute blatant spot on "the secret life of your smartphone". [Full review in Spanish]
August 7, 2017
A cinema release perhaps without equal this year in terms of how shockingly dreadful it is.
August 7, 2017
Yes, I'm aware I may be thinking a little too pedantically about a trivial children's cartoon. This is how your mind wanders, though, when you're a sentient adult stuck in front of a film as vapid as this one.
August 7, 2017
Occasionally it's as if The Lego Movie is reaching out a long, friendly arm to Inside Out and falling into the chasm between. But the film is inventive too.
August 7, 2017
The worst thing in this consistently dire effort to pick the pockets of young, vulnerable cretins is its determination to exploit the unworkable premise to death and beyond.
August 7, 2017
A strident palette of candy-coloured empty calories and poop jokes and a cynical message about accepting yourself had me searching for an emoji showing a dispirited film critic hanging from a noose fashioned from a phone-charger cable.
August 5, 2017
This is a charmless and ham-fisted production whose cynical attempt to connect with the young is surely destined to fail.
August 4, 2017
This new animated film only seeks to exalt an indifferent, impersonal and cynical world in which we are led to believe that the best way to communicate is by sending and receiving clumsy little faces. [Full review in Spanish]
August 4, 2017
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.
