‘Playmobil: The Movie’ Review

Features the voices of: Anna Taylor-Joy, Gabriel Bateman, Dino Andrade, Ian James Corlett, Lino Disalvo, Ben Diskin, Jim Gaffigan, Kellen Goff, Wilson Gonzalez, Adam Lambert, Dan Navarro, Tito Ortiz, Daniel Radcliffe, Kenan Thompson | Written by Blaise Hemingway, Greg Erb, Jason Oremland | Directed by Lino Disalvo

Playmobil: The Movie, directed by Lino Disalvo, is the latest feature film adaption of a pre-existing toy or product that is adapted to capitalise on for monetary gain. The world has already been gifted not one but two Lego Movie features as well as a double bill of Angry Birds films, and now it is time for Playmobil to try its hand at creating a franchise and try to stand tall amid other highly successful ventures.

The end result is a mixed venture that does not quite grasp nor understand what works within a feature film of this calibre. On the surface, the whole basis

Playmobil: The Movie Review

  • HeyUGuys
If Playmobil: The Movie had a (memorable) theme song it would be Everything is Meh. Not offensive, actively unpleasant or particularly poor, just…meh. In fact, Playmobil: The Movie is exactly the sort of film which springs to mind when someone tells you that a Playmobil movie exists.

Marla and Charlie Brenner make a formidable team. When the siblings play, the world falls away and they are free to roam their imaginary Playmobil universe together. The Knight and The Viking are the tiny alter egos who unite and fight at their command, nothing is impossible for this adventurous pair.

Marla (Anya Taylor-Joy) has an appetite for adventure in the real world too. Elaborate travel plans festoon her bedroom and the first big song of the movie is peppered with excited exclamations over all the bright things the future will bring. Then tragically the bubble bursts.

Four years later childish things

Playmobil: The Movie review – borderline dopey kids' adventure

Anyone used to the turbocharged irony and comedy rocket-fuel of the Lego films will be let down by this sentimental separated-siblings story

The Lego Movie franchise has been one of the funniest, smartest things in the cinema and even the Angry Birds movies were pretty good – so hopes were counterintuitively pretty high for Playmobil: The Movie. Disappointingly, it is a borderline dopey, sentimental children’s adventure mostly without the wit and spark that converted grownups and kids to the Lego films.

Anya Taylor-Joy plays a woman who has just graduated high school, is yearning to travel, close to her kid brother and living in what appears to be a fairly Mary Poppins-esque part of Brooklyn. Fate takes a terrible turn, and she and her brother become closer in ways they hadn’t wanted to or anticipated. He runs away to some sketchily imagined toy convention in Manhattan, she follows – and through some kind of cosmic,

Daniel Radcliffe Explains Why He Won’t Be The McU’s Wolverine

With the X-Men on their way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a few years, fans have been busying themselves trying to find who the best candidate to play the next Wolverine is. One surprising favorite is Daniel Radcliffe, who’s been at the forefront of the conversation since he jokingly addressed the rumors in a video for Wired earlier this year.

However, don’t expect this fan casting to actually come to fruition. In an interview with Yahoo Movies UK to promote Playmobil: The Movie, the Harry Potter star was asked which other iconic characters he’d like to play on the big screen. The actor replied, though, that he’s not necessarily a fan of starring in a remake of a beloved movie or franchise.

“Most of the films that I love I don’t think I would want to see remade. And I certainly don’t think

Film Review: ‘Playmobil: The Movie’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Playmobil: The Movie’
Tucked in the closing credits of “Playmobil: The Movie” is a dedication to Horst Brandstätter, the German entrepreneur whose company began production of the now-iconic Playmobil toys in the 1970s — acknowledging a vast popular legacy for the dinky figurines that now extends to a whole animated feature. It’s a nice touch, if a tellingly incomplete one: Unmentioned is Hans Beck, the inventor who designed and developed the toys themselves, and by the end of this snazzy but shrilly synthetic kids’ romp, it’s hardly surprising to see business acumen honored ahead of creative input. An attempt to do for the smiling, claw-handed Playmobil collective what “The Lego Movie” did for the humble plastic brick — but without that blockbuster’s dizzy, self-aware wit and visual invention — Lino Disalvo’s hyperactive film never transcends its blatant product-flogging purpose.

The result, brightly stuffed with pirates and vikings and glitter-winged creatures at every turn,

PlayMobil the Movie Trailer #3 Brings Epic-Sized Adventure for Tiny Toys
Playmobil: The Movie plans to see summer out the door with one last blast for kids and parents alike. Sure, Playmobil might not be as popular as Lego in the States, but the iconic toys have been a worldwide phenomenon for over 40 years. And now, they are getting their first big screen adventure, with the animated adventure coming from STXFilms on August 30.

As the tagline states, 'The Size of Epic Adventure Not Shown Here!' Judging from the latest footage, this is going to be fun, excitement and thrills for all. This is STXFilms latest attempt at Animated Comedy Adventure after the bomb that was UglyDolls hit theaters earlier this year, coming as a big disappointment for the studios. Hopes are high that Playmobil doesn't suffer the same fate.

Happy 30th Birthday To Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe

Here’s to a very happy birthday to Daniel Radcliffe! The British actor known around the world as The Boy Who Lived in the Harry Potter franchise turns 30 years old today. And doesn’t that make you feel ancient?

But it’s true, the math checks out. Radcliffe was 11 when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came out in 2001, exactly the same age as the character in the story. In fact, as further proof that he was born for the part, his birthday – July 23rd – is just a week before Harry’s, which author J.K. Rowling has specified in the books as being July 31st.

Radcliffe continued to star as the Chosen One for seven more movies until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the series of adaptations to a close in 2011. Since finishing the saga, he’s become known for picking a range of roles

New Full-Length Us Trailer for Epic Adventure 'Playmobil: The Movie'

"There's no chance or danger, or anything, right?" Stx Entertainment has debuted a new full Us trailer for Playmobil: The Movie, based on the line of mini-figure toys from Europe (that aren't Lego but look a lot like Lego). We've already featured a few other international trailers before this one, but the more they show from the movie, the worse it looks. Extremely cheesy and overloaded with rip-off comedy. Here's how they pitch it: "Packed with humor and excitement the film combines endearing and hilarious characters, thrilling adventure and breathtaking scenery in this original, animated heart-warming tale." Featuring the voices of Anya Taylor-Joy, Jim Gaffigan, Gabriel Bateman, Adam Lambert, Kenan Thompson, Meghan Trainor, and Daniel Radcliffe as Rex Dasher. I don't even know how they got this voice cast, but they got them and it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. It still looks terrible. But maybe it's just not for me.
