I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.

Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.

Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

Today, I'll be reviewing "Smurfs: The Lost Village".In the film, Smurfette (played by Demi Lovato) is once again having trouble figuring out who she is and what her place in the world can be. But then, she and her friends Brainy (played by Danny Pudi), Clumsy (played by Jack McBrayer), and Hefty (played by Joe Monganiello) discover a map leading to another Smurf village leading into a place called The Forbidden Forest! Now, they must find the lost village with other Smurfs before their archenemy Gargamel (played by Rainn Wilson) finds it first in order to drain them of the magic inside of them!I'd like to start off by saying that while the film isn't the best out of all animated films, it isn't without entertainment here and there. In short, everything was mostly a fifty/fifty for me.I thought that the animators did a great job at helping the characters and settings retain the 1980s cartoon and comic look, but, I felt that the computer animation they used for the film didn't fit and that it should've just been hand-drawn animated. Everything about the animation and what it was used on had mostly felt like wallpaper that just wouldn't stay put no matter how much glue you use. Much of the time, it gave me a headache.But there are its standouts, really. The animation moments where shadows were cast onto light were parts that got me really intrigued. I also thought the animation used with liquid, dirt, and pictures in the film were really well done.With the voice acting and cast, in some ways I felt that it was a definite improvement over the old cartoon, because they didn't sound too high-pitched. But, I also felt like many members of the cast were struggling on how to make themselves sound natural like the old cartoon.The performance of Rainn Wilson as Gargamel was great, but, I felt like I had problems with it. Much of Wilson's voice acting and lines seemed to be particularly unnatural and long in so many parts of the film, and he seemed to struggle with how to make his character funny most of the time.Examples being these:"Stop ruining things! Ruining things is my thing!""Oh, I'm okay. A little tired. Kind of water-logged. Thanks for asking, but, I'm still evil, so...""Enjoy drowning! Hope you are better swimmers than you are judges of character.""Well, I was thinking of getting a little place out here. Just a quiet place in the forest. It's a little breezy up on the hill-WHAT DO YOU THINK I'M DOING HERE?!"Overall, I felt that it wasn't the best.But the voicing does have its standouts really. The performances of Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy, and Michelle Rodriguez as Stormy (a new character) were the ones I really thought stood out when it comes to outstanding and funny performances. They had really awesome lines; made even the most unnatural of ones seem natural; and did such a great job at making their characters lovable too.With the story that the writers of the film made, I thought that the concept of another village, hidden away from outsiders in an enchanted place, was really original for a Smurfs story. Its focus on Smurfette in particular, as well as her character development and quest to find out who she is were parts of the film that particularly got me engaged. Everything about it was really relatable.In the end, Smurfs: The Lost Village will entrance kids and fans of the Smurfs, but it likely won't be something for adults, newcomers, and animation enthusiasts. It likely also won't pass as the best comedy ever despite some solid gags here and there.

My two children, one (4 years and 18 months old), absolutely LOVE this film! It's so nice to have a film which is perfectly suited to them, I really hope they do a sequel in exactly the same way, because it really is the perfect kiddies film! I can only assume most of the ratings and reviews are based on adult opinions. This film is targeted for children and it 10/10 achieves its goal! Thank you for stirring they're imagination and creativity. We hope to see a sequel in the making soon.

When I started watching this movie"Smurf", This is a nice film, that particularly targets little kids. Enjoy the movie! I watch a lot of animations and cartoons and love me a feel good film. This movie had some basic elements and the overall moral was quite nice. But this movie had been done a million times before and in a million better ways. A great homage to the classic Smurf characters, The Lost village is that and more. Great movie for everyone. That could have made for better comedy. Like it!!!

Such an amazing movie! My family and I have been on a "watching movie streak" and this was one of the few we chose to watch. Before we watched the movie I had some doubts about it, now, it has been the best movie I have watched on this "streak". For me it is the best Smurfs movie yet so if you already enjoy the first two then you would really like this one, (my opinion). I definitely recommend watching it because it is an incredible story and includes great details.
