The Lorax (2012)


[Ends up as an extremely kiddish movie]

The Lorax (2012)
IMDB- 6.5
Rottentomatoes- 55
RJG Rating- 35

Lorax ,the guardian of the forest ,arrives to stop a person from cutting down the forest.

Starring- Danny DeVito,Ed Helms ,Zac Efron
Director- Chris Renaud

The Lorax is a tale from a series of books by Dr.Seuss.But the movie doesnt stick to the original story but rather takes the easy route and presents a movie high on visuals but low on quality.

Animation for the movie is very colourful and beautiful.It has the certain look that can be expected from a movie based on Dr.Seuss books.

Being an environmental movie its main tale is about taking care of the nature etc.But unlike movies such as WallE ,that was interesting for all ages ,Lorax caters only to the kids.Idiocy is written all over the movie for the sensible viewers.The characters arent very likeable and even the Lorax has no real purpose in the movie.Lots of unwanted characters such as the high pitched walking fish are too commercialized and is just there to sell the movie to kids.

The movie is partially musical but none of the songs are memorable or even good.The movie fails as a comedy too.

Direction is below average.Lorax could have been a much more better movie but by commercializing the movie just for kids ,it turns up to be just another casual animated movie.Unfortunately ,this isnt the age for such movies.Lorax takes the easy route throughout the movie and fails to impart any message to its viewers.

Overall ,Lorax isnt very memorable.It appeals to kids but is a timepass for others.

Animation- 4/5
Story- 2/5
Direction- 2/5
Action- 3.5/5
Drama- 2/5
Comedy- 1/5
Musical- 2/5
