Gnomes vs. Trolls
If you are used to American cinema then this film will probably seem a
bit off to you as it appears to be a Swedish product.
Great effort in character development which is sadly offset by the weak
plot line. The film did a poor job keeping my kids interested and,
frankly, seemed superfluous to them. Some entertaining moments for
adults willing to pay attention which is a charming trait it shares
with Disney but there is not enough of it.
I would not go out of my way to watch this movie and I would not
recommend it particularly. In the event you are torn between watching
this and another movie that is also not particularly good you won't be
I found this movie pretty entertaining, and I bet will become a
favorite among the children. The plot is simple and the characters are
fun and interesting. I especially enjoyed the trolls in this movie.
They are very funny with their charming stupidity, and I think the
animations of the trolls look better than those of the gnomes...
The overall animations do, understandably, not match the productions of
Pixar and Dreamworks, but that doesn't really bother me much. There's a
warm fuzzy feeling about this movie that just can't be ignored. It
exudes of joy and happiness! Definitely a good debut by Swedish
producers White Shark.
Go watch it with your kids, they will surely love it! 8/10.
