In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does.
Animated Adventure Comedy - Unlike the two recent Smurfs feature films, this is a completely
animated movie and is more squarely aimed at children. Storywise,
this is unrelated to those previous two animated films. Fans of the
voice actors should also enjoy though some cast members such as Julia
Roberts and Michelle Rodriguez have small supporting roles. There is
some mildly crude instances of bodily function humor that lends the
film its PG rating, but on the whole most families
will find this to be all ages-safe.
Roger EbertFull Review Average Considering that all a film of this type has to do to be considered a success is hold the attention of a bunch of tykes for 90 minutes, "Smurfs: The Lost Village” sort of achieves that particular goal (there were no noticeable meltdowns in the audience that I saw it with) but doesn't really try to do much of anything else.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average ...a disposable and rigorously conventional animated kiddie adventure with a standard quest narrative broken up by an action sequence or musical montage every 10 minutes or so to keep its young audience from getting too restless.
