Animated Adventure Comedy - This is an animated fantasy/adventure aimed at the entire family. There are no big names in the voice cast, with the most known names being character actors like Sarah Paulson and Eddie Izzard. There is some mild crude humor and brief instances of tame violence, but most parents will finds this safe for kids of all ages.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...lacks the personality to distinguish it from superior animated films that cover most of the same ground. ...the script is stunningly flat in terms of entertainment value. ...I just wanted to laugh or smile at one line of dialogue, and I never did.
NY PostFull Review Good ...an adorable, not at all abominable creature in a gorgeously animated story. There's plenty of physical humor here to amuse younger viewers...while Culton's use of music, the yeti's expressive face and Yi's connection to her late father should resonate with older ones.
Rolling StoneFull Review Average ...feels a little like the same old animated song-and-dance. ...good family fun as far it goes. It also could have gone further. Abominable has all the ingredients to reach the heights, but the play-it-safe script keeps it slipping and sliding at a far distance from the summit.
Slant MagazineFull Review Above Average Abominable Is Both Poignant Tale of Grief and Commodity Fetish. The second half's series of hollow visual spectacles foreground the film as a corporate product. ...a fine first act lays down a groundwork of emotional realism that elevates what might otherwise be taken as just another kid's movie.
