I really enjoyed this one. It's true that the plot is quite simple and mixes all the characters, but is faithfull to the main story, and don't lost the track. References like the Great Pumpkin are in here, but don't are explored, what is great, cause brings all the nostalgia of big fans (like me) but don't cause confusion for the kids of today. Naive friendship still has a place in 2015 and that is lovely.
This is very sweet. But it's not memorable, I'll forget it within the next 30 days. I enjoy these overly young animations, like The Good Dinosaur and Peanuts - they really set an audience and go for it. My problem with animations is: why does it have to have the same climax? We all know things will eventually go wrong, but at the end it all gets better. I dream about a cartoon where it is all better, all the time.
I was a bit afraid of a tridimensional CGI Charlie Brown but it actually turned out just fine, very aesthetically pleasing and living up to Schulz's original comics. Though the plot may seem simple, there are mixed-up feelings of happiness, sadness and most of all: nostalgia.
Faithful...yes. Serviceable...yes. Bland...afraid so. One can't question the motive (cash) but why such an old fashioned take on the classic comic script? Film feels like it could have come out the year after the previous film not 35 years later. An OK time killer to babysit some kids perhaps but otherwise a pretty dated affair. And I was really looking forward to this one.
Charlie Brown ist bestimmt der beliebteste Looser der amerikanischen Filmgeschichte. Charles M. Schulz hatte ihn und seine Freunde, die Peanuts, mit wenigen Strichen skizziert. Genau darin bestand ihre Wirkung: Eierkopf, Knopfaugen, ein paar gekräuselte Haare oben drauf. Das soll nun im 3D Format funktionieren?(...) mehr auf cinegeek.de
A very sweet animation, full of nostalgia. Although it is true to the original , the plot is rather simple and the trailer sums up all the best scenes . However, if you are a fan of Snoopy and Charlie Brown you should really see it. Also, i really liked the picture and the soundtrack.
Charmingly melancholic and surprisingly sweet without betraying the tone of Schulz's original work. Its unusual animation style, mixing tridimensional digital technology with a mostly bidimensional aesthetic, is enough to make it an essential viewing for any lover of animated cinema.
