Chris Renaud’s Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax (2012) Movie Review
Voice Cast: Zac Efron, Taylo Swift, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Betty White and Rob Riggle
Director: Chris Renaud
Runtime: 86 Minutes
Watched at PVR Cinemas
From the creators of Despicable Me and the imagination of Dr. Seuss comes the 3D-CG feature Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, an adaptation of the classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a 12-year-old as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
“Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax stars the voices of Zac Efron (High School Musical), Taylor Swift (Valentine’s Day), Betty White (The Proposal), Danny DeVito (Twins), Rob Riggle (The Hangover) and Ed Helms (The Hangover). The voice cast work is average, Danny DeVito gave the Lorax can be said to be the best voice amongst all. The animation is far victor, but this adaptation falls short of the original. Do not waste your money on the 3D version of the movie. The depth in the movie could barely be considered good. Kids will enjoy the wonderfully bright animation and the cutesy characters, especially a bear cub and singing fish residing in the tree-laden forest. The directors, Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda, both directed “Despicable Me”, which was just fantastic. Anytime you take a short story and try to make it a feature film, you run the risk of losing the charm of the original tale. That’s what The Lorax falls short off, misses the appeal of the Original. On the whole, The Lorax knows just what buttons to push to keep the young ones engaged and entertained.
