Fantastic Cast & Movie

This was a awesome movie and such a great cast of actors doing the voices I have know about this movie because it was a show on The Rocky & Bullwinkle show not sure if there will be a sequel but hopeful because it was so good. 5 stars

Childish...But isn't that the point

Great flick for the kids. Some humour directed to an older audience but on the whole pretty sedate entertainment. An annoying younger brother type of 3/5.

One for the kids and that inner-child

Sometimes I wonder if these cartoon were made for adults or the kids? This one, definitely for the kids. I laughed at some of the jokes but at times felt like it was hard work. I really wanted to like this movie as I love animated movies. But I was glad when it ended. I'm sure my son would of agreed that it was a little too try-hard!

Pleasant

This movie was simply pleasant, great for another G Rated, positive film for the younger audience but it didn't stand out for me. There wasn't a particularly moving climax and predictability was at level 95. I do admire how this movie introduces history to the younger audience in a humorous way. Visually, the animation was great too. I would recommend this...

Despite top-notch visuals and versatile voice-work... it lacks the Up-style warmth to be best in show.

Not perfect, but it is fast-moving, intermittently witty and pretty good fun.

There's an awful lot of unexpected fun to be had, boasting zany adventures with various historical figures.

The prospect of the two needing each other, but being separated by uncaring bureaucrats, might be poignant, if it weren't handled so loudly and brainlessly.

The film's saving grace is its character design and use of 3D techniques to speed things up in every sense when the plot starts to flag.

There's a good-hearted father and son tale at the heart of the madness here, but the surroundings are sometimes a little too silly for true greatness.
