The movie can only truely be enjoyed by those who have watched the series as it is a direct continuation of what's next for Violet. Great additional heartwarming stories, the animation, and songs are just like the series.
The movie is cute, charming and fun, also it is silly and stupid at times. The highlight is the energetic storytelling and the unique charm of the leading actress and not the detective work and mystery as one would expect from a Holmes movie.
I was surprised by the quality of excellence in all aspects for this animation movie considering it is a Chinese production and in 3D. The store is based on one of their popular mythological character Nezha, a naughty child with godly/demonic powers, reminded me a lot of Lord Krishna as a kid from India Mythology. The story is rich with emotions, character growth, struggle, adventure and laughs.
As for the animation itself, even though it is in 3D, it is really good, was refreshing to see how different it was from your standard animation offering from either Japan or Disney/Pixar.
