Smurfs: The Lost Village is a 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy-comedy film based on The Smurfs comic book series by Peyo, produced by Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Animation and The Kerner Entertainment Company, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
Why It Rocks
- Differently than the live action movies, the Smurfs are as funny and quirky as Gargamel and Azrael instead of being rappresented as boring Mary Sues heroes like in the live action movies.
- The cute little Smurfette was the most lovable and the most dramatic protagonist of the film (especially the entire franchise).
- It did try to stay faithful to the Smurfs comic books from the 60s, the 70s and the 80s.
- Excellent plot.
- Several funny moments.
- The zany-type CGI animation looks very amazing and very cartoony.
- Smurfette's origin story was decent, and her death was very emotional.
- Gargamel's pet vulture, Monty, made his animation debut and he's a good addition.
- The film follows a lot more closely following the artwork created by the series' creator, Peyo.
- Great soundtrack.
- The most adorable scene with Columbia Pictures logo with little Smurfette.
- Good voice acting.
- Smurfette's both theme songs, are The Truest Smurf of All and I'm a Lady.
- The ending scene was so great, where Smurfette finally became the new leader of the Smurfs, and most of all, a true-blue Smurf.
- It does NOT features the series' most annoying theme song.
- Smurfwillow, Papa Smurf's former arch-rival and currently his future wife, and several female Smurfs are the series' new characters, that are introduced in this film.
- Gargamel's voice was extremely awkward. Not only the movie does not bring back Hank Azaria to voice Gargamel even though he was the fun part of the live action movies, but the new voice actor Rainn Wilson dosen't even try to make Gargamel sounds like Gargamel and instead his voice comes out as too charming and young for Gargamel.
- During her origin story, Smurfette was transformed into a real Smurf by Papa Smurf, by using his magic ...with his HANDS! WHAT!
- For this feature film, the character of Papa Smurf was suddenly flanderized, when he turned a friendly little Smurf into a "one very sad Smurf", as he became more ruler-like than he is.
- All characters from comic books and tv shows are don't appear like Baby Smurf, The Smurflings, Sassette and many more in this film.
- SmurfBlossom is a bit obnoxious.
