Dr Seuss’ “The Lorax” is a charming and unique animated movie. Patterned after the inimitable stylings of Dr Seuss, the visual world of the Lorax is beautiful to behold. Colorful, charming, idiosyncratic… it has a fresh and appealing creative vision to offer audiences.
The story within may be a little slow for today’s children, but it’s got charisma and humor to spare. At times it comes dangerously close to being preachy with its environmentalist, anti-capitalist messages… but overall it’s an entertaining family film that feels original and unique amongst the annual onslaught of animated offerings.
