Review: Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil
OK By MeI've noticed a decidedly hostile tone in the reviews offered by the press. It's as if they're of the opinion that deconstructing plots and observing in-jokes and product tie ins are the only factors that go into the enjoyment value of a movie.
I too noticed that there is little that is original about this movie. And ,yes, there are references to other movies and hints of merchandising. But this didn't stop me from enjoying it.
I found this movie to be a good bit of harmless fun. Being predictable to adults and older children made it easy going and fun to try and predict exactly how it would play out. Younger children would simply enjoy the surprises. There were some unforced chuckles and many entertaining action sequences. The animation was pleasantly non-Disney Barbie and Ken style. The characters clear cut cutely expressive.
This is an undemanding movie. If you want complex, gritty, demanding drama I suggest you don't go to an animated KIDS MOVIE!
