Horton Hears a Who
Movie Review

SYNOPSIS:

Horton the Elephant struggles to protect a microscopic community from his neighbors who refuse to believe it exists.

REVIEW:

This is the 3rd of the Dr. Seuss film adaptations —“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “The Cat in the Hat,” were the other two -- and what separates 'Horton Hears a Who' from those who films is that it's actually a good movie and not on this reviewers worst films of all-time list like the other two.

It was refreshing to see this movie in an audience full of children 5 and younger with their parents. I've been to many animation children films packed with kids, and I have to say this is one of the first ones I've witnessed where there wasn't a restless child in the house.

In most kids films in the cinema, the kids in the audience dominate the action -- not the movie itself. But in Horton Hears a Who, every single person was stuck on their seat and entertained! Including the adults.

Whereas previous animation films that were solid movies (Ratatouille, The Bee Movie) for adults but seemed to bore children, and some films that bored adults but children loved -- 'Horton Hears a Who' balances it out and is entertaining for both demographics. And that is a sign of a very successful film.

I'm sure Dr. Seuss has turned to the right angle in his grave and is finally happy to see an adaptation of his work not getting tortured by Hollywood. This film follows Dr. Seuss' thematics and stays true with that he's trying to say in his stories.

Like many of Dr. Seuss' stories, Horton Hears a Who is about how kids and even adults need to always mix your own imaginations and feelings within the realities of the worlds they live in. And how really large we are in our world while also being very small too at the same time.

I did really enjoy this piece and I recommend it for everyone. Especially parents with kids 10 or younger. Like all great animation films, Horton Hears a Who tells us a good story with terrific thematics for kids. Sometimes in life you must stay true to what you feel no matter what, even if the entire village thinks you're nuts!

Granted this is a marvelous tale, and a hard one to ruin. And the makers of Horton Hears a Who haven’t.

The only negative thing I can say about this film was that there was a tired sub-plot involving the Mayor of Who-Ville and the disconnection with his son. This is not out of Dr. Seuss' thematics in his stories, but it seems like a tired plot in Hollywood and T.V. these days. The Father/Son issue has been done to death it seems. Watch every Steven Spielberg film!

But a solid film to watch at the cinema right before. Perhaps the only one.

3 stars out of 4!
