Consensus: Smurfs: The Lost Village may satisfy very young viewers and hardcore Smurfaholics, but its predictable story and bland animation continue the franchise's recent mediocre streak.

Joey Nolfi
Entertainment Weekly

It's a candy-coated sugar rush, though its mind-numbing repetitiveness (and haphazardly-written screenplay) will likely test even the most patient parent.

There are plenty of ambitious set pieces boasting visual ingenuity, and the witty, perceptive script includes well-constructed subtext and lessons about breaking free from patriarchal norms and the benefits of learning about different cultures.

All I know is that I cannot complain this time about a Smurf movie being a vehicle for misogyny or a direct highway to the toy store. On the other hand, the whole franchise is product placement.

Asbury sticks to the basics, with obvious Saturday morning-style fare based on groaners and pratfalls about the earnest little creatures with self-defining names like Nosey, Grouchy and Jokey.

It's more suited to a rental than a big-screen viewing.

The acknowledgment that it is aiming solely for the kiddie audience this time around at least makes it slightly more palatable than its predecessors.

Young children will be entertained, but for the rest of the audience, pretty colors just aren't enough.

"This is a movie that kids will like more than their parents that grew up on the Smurfs. The nostalgia is there, just wrapped with a modern twist. It's still worth Smurfing your way to theaters to see all the Smurftasic fun."

The animation is great but the film is a little boring with no real plot line. The problem with the Smurf films is the studio hires uninspired filmmakers for… More

Much more of a pleasant kid-friendly palate cleanser than a cinematic torture vehicle like the live-action/animated hybrid Smurf films, Smurfs: The Lost… More
