Small, but enjoyable.
11 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

"Ferdinand" is what it is. A small story about a bull who prefers smelling flowers over fighting. Some things lacking were the over abundance of side characters and the inclusion of pop music. If the only characters had just been Ferdinand, the other bulls, his owner that he grows up with, and the Matador, it would have been a better movie. The good things about it, however, were Ferdinand's character along with his interactions with the other bulls and his relationship with the girl that raises him. The humor even gets a few laughs as well. If you enjoy a small story with a likable protagonist and a good message, but are willing to put up with some mildly annoying side characters, then this movie is right for you.
