      Edward Porter Times (UK) Cute critters — with well-rendered fur and feathers — have abundant life of their own. Aug 22, 2022 Full Review Kristen Lopez Spectrum Culture Maybe Illumination and Universal should look at why Pixar succeeds instead of just ripping them off and regurgitating the leftovers. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 20, 2017 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald The film [is] loud, colourful, frantic in pace, but less than the sum of its parts. Rated: 3/5 Sep 9, 2016 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews A Forgettable experience that is only held up with cute animals Aug 7, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Squanders its enormous potential by turning out to be just one more animated effort about plucky heroes embarking on a journey/mission. Rated: 2.5/4 May 9, 2023 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an aggressively juvenile comedy that alienates the viewer virtually from the word go...

      Annette S Was absolutely adorable. I along with my four grandchildren loved it. Great way to spend a few hours. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Brandon B Best Animated Movie! I absolutely loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Tiffany I love everything about it one of me and my son favorite thing to watch Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/05/21 Full Review Jack G unlikable and annoying is the best way I can describe it Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/31/24 Full Review Idan Charles L It's an okay elimination movie Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Charles S 2 hrs of non sense, at times unfollowable action and jokes that never land despite the cast, but it's pretty inoffensive and for the most part carries on at a decent pace. Kids will probably enjoy it, but this is like in something like the uncanny valley for me as a 90s kid where my brain doesn't see 3D cartoons in the same lighthearted manner as they seem to be shooting for, but I associate it with some attempt at quality like Pixar, but this has no more behind it than any episode of a tv cartoon, if that.
