The Smurfs (2011) Movie Review

Hey guys! Do you like Smurf? Those tiny little blue creatures that live in a magical world and like to sing songs when they are working or doing something together? I'm sure those from the year 1980's would know this since it had become a cartoon phenomena back in those old days. Thanks to Tony & Nuffnang, I finally get to watch this movie a few days before it released at TGV Cinema, KLCC which is on the 1st of September, 2011.


Okay back to The Smurf movie review, let's take a look of the storyline and some of the cast and crew behind the significant tiny blue creature movie.


We didn't get to watch in 3D, I told them it's not 3D because it's not 1st of Sept yet!
Pretty much lame joke from me most of the time. ^^

Storyline

When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. Their adventure became more and more exciting when they met the Winslow couples...

Director: Raja Gosnell

Writers: Peyo (characters), J. David Stem (screenplay)

Stars: Hank Azaria, Katy Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Jonathan Winters

Everyone so hyped up for the movie but I'm really tired from work...

Mummy Bendan with the movie tickets!

 It's mummy again with Qian Qian.

Ryan with his girlfriend. 

Yeong Boon also with his 'girl-friend'! haha... 

 Mummy didn't have her dinner before the movie started (poor thing!) so she grabbed a hot dog and a bottle of Minute Maid juice!

My comments about this movie: I kinda like the concept whereby the Smurfs are being sucked into the human world. Storyline just so so and most of the time lame scene were done by the villain himself. The wizard's companion, the cat is better than him in the show but they didn't really make the CGI of the cat better. It would be better if the cat looks more realistic like the talking cats from Cats & Dogs.


What I hate most is the fact that two good comedians actually acted as a serious character, which are the Winslow couples. Somehow I think the audience is not ready yet to see them not cracking lame jokes as they did in Scary Movies or How I Met Your Mother. Plus I find that the 'Happy Song' is really annoying after a while. One of the Smurfs character has a very deep voice, Grouchy. Perhaps his voice was too deep. I think he's the person who acted as the goat-man in the Epic Movie.


My rating? Just 2 / 5 for this one. Kids and girls would like it, not for a typical guy like me.
To add on my movie experience, the cinema hall at that time was really stuffy, smelly & warm. TGV management really need to improve on that.

Anyway, my favorite Smurfs is Clumsy... he's adorable!
What's yours?

Last but not least, SMURF SMURF SMURFITY SMURFED!
