Featuring the voices of Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, among many others, Dreamworks' Trolls is an animated movie fit enough for the 90's kids to see their once favorite childhood toys springing into action in the big screen, although this is mainly a family movie that your kids ever wanted to see one for the weekends.
This movie is about a colorful, happy, bunch of creatures called the Trolls living in a magical tree until the larger creatures, called the Bergens, wanted those lovable creatures to be...(gulp)...their lunch. It's up to the Princess named Poppy and the only unhappy troll, Branch, to save the day by saving their friends before their becoming Bergen food.
If your kids ever managed to see this film as a whole family, chances are this will be a smorgasbord of awkward storyline that doesn't feel like an adventure movie at all as well as the awkward feeling that the colorful world of Trolls will make you feel "high" from the start of the film to the end. Yes, you may consider yawning while your kids are busy watching the film but if anyone around you called this film "cute", you'd better start asking because this film slightly packs a lot of cuteness from start to finish and they really don't care if you call it boring because, like I said it, it's "cute" from start to finish.
On the upside is, despite its lack of feel in the story, this film does pack some good vibes on it thanks to its unforgettable characters and their unforgettable moments in this film. This film is not just for family viewing, it can be a good date night movie if you tried. Trolls may not be an adventurous film when it comes to its storyline, but for a fun factor and good vibes loaded on it, it sure is a good film that you never know until you tried.
My rating: 3.2 out of 5
