Smurfs: The Lost Village (U)

Smurfs: The Lost Village (U)

Animation, Adventure, Comedy

In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.

The critical consensus

It’s smurfing dire, but might be enough to keep the knee-highs quiet for an hour or so.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 27/03/2017

This wholly animated franchise reboot features a meagre plot, some bad puns and too much sappiness.

**(*)(*)(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 27/03/2017

The storytelling style here is far less zany and irreverent than in the typical Pixar film or Lego Movie.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 29/03/2017

A microwave meal of a kid’s film, consisting of tired tropes and bland platitudes. This particular village should have stayed lost.

**(*)(*)(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 29/03/2017

The best that can be said about Smurfs: The Lost Village is that this latest CG animated reboot for the oddball blue Belgian comic strip characters isn’t quite as mind-numbingly awful as the last two.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 30/03/2017

Colourful settings and fantastical beasts might appeal to young ones but the bland plot and awful puns make this an ordeal for grown-ups.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 31/03/2017

The smurfs, led by Julia Roberts, must defeat an evil wizard and learn about gender politics in this ho-hum adventure risking little in terms of story, script or animation.
