It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
The first must-see film of the year.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
Zootopia is the greatest Disney movie of all time. The characters are great. The DMV and Godfather scenes are excellent and hilarious. Story is attracting and will hold you until the end. The movie has unexpected twists. Acting is great. This movie is worthy of a 10/10, and I highly recommend it to anyone.
Five minutes into this movie, and I've already had a feeling I'm being brainwashed with a hose, and I simply wanted something easy and entertaining to watch...Okay, here we go. First of all, I really enjoy all this hypocrisy. I find it deliciously entertaining. We have a protagonist, who chose a very specific field of work, and it's not only about making the others obey the law and/ or authority. First of all things it requires a very strict obedience and subordination, AND our dumb fluffy hero thinks it works only one way. She's better than that, she shouldn't do her job because she knows better. *applauds* Cartman's 'Respect my authoritah!' line should be somewhere within this movie's logic.We have several absolutely Mary-Sue/ Deus ex Machina moments. The worst of them all is when protagonist's about to get fired, expectedly, but some random sheep saves her fluffy tail. Next time - Nick interferes with pretty much the same result. Seriously? It's between her and her superior, who's Nick? Is it a common practice out there for complete strangers to step in the job issues discussions and twist them the way they want? I dare you to moralize this. Refuse to do the assigned job, insist on special treatment right from the doorstep, think you're better than the tasks that have to be done by someone (not you, apparently), and there would certainly be a miracle saving you from ending up in a dumpster? Gimme a break! I'd certainly love a noir-esque twist Disney would probably implement for sure if it was several decades ago - ending up jobless, homeless, too stubborn to crawl back to the farm, despair deepens and forges the character. This would make this movie so better. Instead of this we are encouraged being irresponsible. Great morals out there, someone _else_ would always speak up to _your_ superior. No, kids, that's not what happens in life, it's your job, your superior, you deal with it, no tasks are below you, AND you're responsible.Next. We have the whole movie attacking our ears with cheesy lines against the prejudice based on *species*, but it turns out, it only is applicable to the protagonist (better than thou, right). All side characters are so stereotypical and one-dimensional based on their species I wonder if it's far beyond the 'racist' line.I must say, once the movie gets past the Mary-Sue part, it gets slightly better, I won't even spoil that. Too bad the better part is relatively short.Now, let me see what we got left after all this PC BS had been peeled off. Nowhere near classics, an okay-animation, nothing breathtaking, compared to some stuff released around 25 years ago, average plot and even more mediocre story development. Exaggerated grimaces, getting worse with every movie, but of course, how do people know 'emotions' if they aren't expressed in such distorted way? Painfully predictable and passing, which is certainly a waste of opportunity, since this setting could've been made a better place (ironic, huh?). If you can turn your brain PC receiver off, it's fine to watch once, without expecting much, otherwise - beware of Brainwashing Hose of Hypocrisy!
Disney's dip into detective drama genre is nicely noir inflected and appropriately allegorical, even if its central metaphor occasionally falls somewhat short considering the parallels it draws become increasingly tenuous, while the animation is lively and likely to remind you of the studio's cel-shaded past. What brings 'Zootropolis (2016)' close to being great is the compelling dynamic between its two central characters and the way in which they traverse the typically convoluted, yet satisfyingly so, narrative. 6/10
Summary: A good story that is well told. Great attention to detail and humour. The characters are well written and dare I say, 'realistically' portrayed. _____________________________________________________________________I would say the story by itself is not very groundbreaking, even if all the characters are anthropomorphic animals. However, this is very well told in an engaging manner with plenty of humour and not without some surprises. I really liked the attention to detail to the design of Zootopia and how all the different species are accommodated into the city. Pop-culture references were also funny. What I liked more was how the characters were portrayed - you can believe they are actual people(?) living their lives. I especially liked the scene where a character, after a rough day, hesitates to pick up the phone call from her parents, dreading the sheer exhaustion of putting on a happy face. That was quite relatable. Overall, for a movie intended for children, it certainly has plenty of entertainment value.
