This was an impressive film visually for the independent Belgian company but the story unfortunately falls flat.

It's not that The Wild Life is poorly animated or overtly irresponsible. It's just lazy and stupid.

If you're old enough to read this then you're probably too old for this bright and child-friendly animation.

This retelling of Daniel Defoe's literary classic is squarely aimed at very young children.
November 24, 2016
A film with an absolute lack of enthusiasm, rhythm and movement for adventure. [Full review in Spanish]
November 15, 2016
The Wild Life starts with a shaky idea and goes downhill from there.
November 10, 2016
An impeccable animation, but with a story that doesn't stand out, losing the opportunity to get closer to families and new generations. [Full review in Spanish]

Robinson Crusoe: The Wild Life is a handbook of mistakes -- although I can't say whether the problem was lack of budget, time, or simply judgment.
September 30, 2016
Robinson Crusoe badly and baldly retold from a talking macaw's point-of-view, French-Belgian production The Wild Life is chattering, increasingly antic animal-animation.
September 19, 2016
It doesn't have the technical resources to compete with other animated films. [Full review in Spanish]
September 19, 2016
A film that reproduces the recipe for a more commercial cinema for adults, adapted to children's profitable market. [Full review in Spanish]
September 15, 2016
This one is utterly, doggedly, defiantly undistinguished, designed only to play for a big opening weekend, cashing in on those millions of parents out there with nothing better to do with their kids on a Saturday afternoon.
September 13, 2016
Kids might be amused, but adults will find the jokes weak, the narrative bleak and little to pass the time between animal chase scenes.
September 12, 2016
In a year where animated entertainment has had an embarrassment of riches, The Wild Life is merely an embarrassment, and a pretty grand one at that.
September 9, 2016
contemporary relevance doesn't make this movie any more interesting. It just floats by on flat characters and predictable gags, a functional distraction for kids who are bound to forget it as soon as they hit the next episode of Dora The Explorer.
September 9, 2016
Taken all in all, The Wild Life is a harmless but instantly forgettable children's movie.
September 9, 2016
The best thing to be said about this pedestrian, sedentary storyline is that it contains no bathroom humour. But since it also contains practically no humour at all, this isn't much of an endorsement.
September 9, 2016
The sight gags and one-liners are much too tepid for all but the smallest and least discriminating children.
September 9, 2016
Forgettable talking-animal adventure has some scares.
September 9, 2016
The Wild Life is a harmless piece of second-tier animation that will pass silently in the night.
