Last year, I saw a trailer for this movie, and I remember saying to myself, "this looks stupid and made solely to entertain young children," but after watching this movie, I was utterly wrong. "The Mitchells vs. the Machines" is wildly imaginative, laugh-out-loud funny, and has a giant emotional heart in the center of its core that will hit hard to families across the globe. The film contains a fantastic ensemble cast delivering stellar performances, including Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, Olivia Colman, Fred Armisen, and Beck Bennett. The animation and visuals look incredible. Like Sony Pictures Animations' previous film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," the film's style feels like a Japanese anime. "The Mitchells vs. The Machines" is a beautiful, action-packed animated film that will connect with families on an emotional level while also providing a ton of fun within the overarching story. "The Mitchells vs. The Machines" is a family event that teaches individuals that we feel too attached when we bury ourselves in our laptops and iPhones. When it's time to shut down, it's ok to spread our wings and fly to the next chapter of our lives while never forgetting where we came from. Thanks to the incredible animation, excellent creative team led by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and fantastic performances from Jacobson, McBride, Rudolph, and Colman, this film succeeds on so many levels.
