      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A beautifully animated history lesson, The Inventor seems somewhat uncertain as to which audience it's trying to reach, but it remains amusing and often engaging.

      Mark Kermode Kermode and Mayo's Take (YouTube) It's a role written for Stephen Fry... it's perhaps harder to know exactly who the audience is. Mar 12, 2024 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Charming and informative as it is, the film may struggle to engage younger audiences accustomed to more overt comedy in their animated movies and less grave-robbing. Rated: 3/5 Mar 10, 2024 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian It’s a bit of a bore and a chore, and feels like the kind of “educational” film that will be foisted on kids in class during wet playtime on rainy days. Rated: 2/5 Mar 4, 2024 Full Review John Kirk Original Cin The animation, reminiscent of the '60’s Rankin/Bass Christmas specials, serves to reinforce a sense of innocence and sweetness. And it offers children a real-life super-hero who never stopped asking questions. Rated: B-plus Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Dulcie Pearce The Sun (UK) There’s little to hold the attention of younger watchers. And even a cameo from the Mona Lisa can’t raise a smile. Rated: 2/5 Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) The story doesn’t portray da Vinci as some type of intellectual anomaly... Capobianco includes all those elements, but his film is a reminder that the incredible brain was housed in a very human body. Rated: A- Feb 2, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Paul S Overall good. I think my daughter, 8, was a bit too young to know the characters. Ages 10-13 could probably enjoy it more or get more out of it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/25/23 Full Review Levi Wonderful animation, lovely music, and a nice break from typical modern animated movies. Love the return of 2d animation and all for the stop motion. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/23/23 Full Review Lea K Beautiful animation but my child had a hard time following it Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/16/23 Full Review null I took my two kids aged 6 and 7 to watch this move. It was DULL, the voices and accents were NOT clear the majority of the time. The storyline had no flow whatsoever it seemed to dart all over the place. People in the cinema with kids were all leaving half way through the movie. We only stayed as we paid a small fortune on the tickets, I feel like I have been "ripped off". This movie should be rated 15 not a PG. If you have kids under 15 don't bother watching this! If fact miss it altogether! It was 90 minutes of our lives we won't ever get back! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Megan B This was such a great movie for our family to watch together. If you want to lesson the screen time with your children then this is perfect to actually get them to learn something while enjoying the show. We loved it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Mitch S one of the cutest, funniest, and unique animated films I've ever seen. Capobianco has done it again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
