This is Disney at its best: Charming characters, familiar themes, and original worlds that are so brilliantly crafted, you just find yourself revisiting them in your thoughts for days. This perfect film's true brilliance, however, lies, most of all, in its creators' unique subtlety in conveying contemporary, social, and even at times, political subtexts, without losing track of its heart -- quite impressive for any movie, let alone animation. Zootopia is as sweet as it is funny, engaging as it is thoughtful, making it without a doubt one of the smartest films of the year.
The chemistry between the immensely charming and talented Gosling and Crowe is nothing short of electrifying, which more than makes up for the few outlandish moments in this film. Overall, this a very entertaining summer comedy, with one particular chase-scene that is bound to make you laugh out loud. Good to see Russell Crowe making good movies again. Early prediction: Ryan Gosling will be nominated for best actor in a musical/comedy at next year's Golden globe awards if not best-supporting actor at the Oscars.
It's a genuine relief to see actual human stories -- and not only ones that end with a bang -- still being made. This movie is a triumph from beginning to end, with it's biggest strength lying behind Mark Ruffolo's virtuoso/career-best performance, that is only emblematic of the amazing streak of roles this uniquely subtle actor has been giving us in recent years. "Infinitely polar bear" is a wonderful effort from first time director, Maya Forbes who bases the script on her own childhood experience, dealing with a Bi-Polar father. This is, without a doubt, one of the most important and underrated films of the year.
As a story, this isn't something that's 100% original and never been done before. All that being said, all you have to do is match a pro like Pacino with a criminally underrated talent like Cannavale and what you palpably get is one hell of a heartwarming, crowed-pleaser.
Veteran filmmaker Nancy Meyers, sure knows how to utilise her film's greatest asset -- the great Robert De Niro. This is a movie that is missing something but makes up for it with a lot of charm.
