Very well done, kids will enjoy it. Adults can go too, and enjoy.
Fun movie with all kinds of "messages" in it that kids probably won't get. BUT, that's what makes it more fun for adults.The main message of this film was "a person's a person, no matter how small." seemed to be an afront to pro-choice, but then maybe I read too much into it. All in all, it was a fun movie even though it streched the book beyond belief..
Loud and clear! That's what I discribe the new film "Horton Hears a Who." The movie is the third and the best one of the Dr. Seuss's adaptions from book to the big screen. The last two were live movies, that went nowhere. this time the movie is a live animation and it's a good thing. It's works a whole lot better. Horton is a elephant who lives in a jungle until he four a speck of dust with people. these people come from whoville, which it might be the same place as the Grinch. But what do I know, I don't live in Whoville. the other animals are offended by what Horton's doing so they tried to get the speck away from him. The chemiostry between Horton and the mayor of whoville works very well, even if not in the same scene together. the characters are fun to watch both in whoville and in the animal kingdom. what more, this movie is loyal to the book, despite the film being hip. that did hurt the transfer from book to screen. Kids wiill really like this movie, but adults will like it even more. Even me. A wonderful movie with a message that will be true to everyone.
(review written by my 7-year-old)
This movie is a great movie for your kids to enjoy. Or get together with friends and family to watch.
It also teaches very important lessons. Let's talk about those lessons. In a part of the movie, when Horton finds the Whos at the beginning, he cared a lot about them and protected the Whos and their land. That's the first lesson, teaching about caring.
The second lesson is: never give up/perseverance. For example, when that black bird took the clover and flew over a patch clovers, then dropped it. Horton looked, and looked, and looked. Finally, since he'd not given up, he found the Whos and took them home.
Don't forget the lesson words! Perseverance and caring are very important!
