Playmobil: The Movie / Reviews

There's a plot in there somewhere, but most of the time it's subsumed by a frenetic attempt to showcase the whole Playmobil range in an extended kinetic eruption of primal sound and primary colour.

An hour in, barely past the halfway point, I played my once-a-year walkout card – and left. To my absolute delight, the two other people at the screening followed me out, leaving Playmobil: The Movie screaming alone in to the void of an empty cinema. Which is exactly what it deserves.

This is a film that exists because it has to exist - it has no interest in justifying itself any further.

Disappointingly, it is a borderline dopey, sentimental children's adventure mostly without the wit and spark that converted grownups and kids to the Lego films.

Lino DiSalvo's hyperactive film never transcends its blatant product-flogging purpose.

It feels like exactly what it is: an ugly, interminable, devoid-of-substance advert.

Maybe it's fitting Playmobil: The Movie is old-fashioned, stiff and only suitable for those between the ages of four and ten, but it sure isn't much fun.

Bland variations on familiar themes... leave Playmobil -The Movie in need of some of the adventurous spirit that it so relentlessly advocates.
