furry justice league review

super paw patrol

Typical of every pooch, Krypto – who arrived on Earth in the same pod as baby Kal-El – longs to be his master Superman’s best, and only, friend. For him it’s the good life, until Lulu, a bare-ass guinea pig empowered by a piece of kryptonite kidnaps Superman and the Justice League. The craziest thing about this story is that we believe in it (with a certain suspension of credulity). The crazy pig is a real threat to the world that the film takes time to install for about thirty minutes. The fight of the canine hero thus takes on an epic dimension that we did not see coming.

In addition to this compelling superheroism, Krypto and the Super Animals is unleashed with an often very funny humor, several flashes in the dialogues and meta jokes parodying the universe of Batman and his super-pals. At times, it looks like a version of Shrek in DC fashion, which is not to displease. The majority of the best witticisms are also to be credited to the excellent Lulu, dubbed in French by a completely comfortable Muriel Robin and which erases the rest of the cast – Denis Brogniart as Lex Luthor is as forgettable as it is incomprehensible in this role.

When is Superman v Lulu: Rise of Guinea Pigs?

It is therefore very regrettable that the many strokes of genius in the screenplay are torpedoed by incredibly boring discussions. taking the form ofan over-explanatory moral on the power of super-friendshipthe lengths of dialogue from screenwriters Jared Stern and John Whittington will certainly test the patience of younger viewers.

Above all, this weak handwriting causes a total lack of interest in already very ordinary secondary roleslike the sow feeling bad about herself, or the squirrel looking like Scrat from The Ice Age. Some characters stand out all the same, like the old super-speed turtle never losing libido and this cute but sadistic little cat that we only see twice (despite his presence on the attach). It is therefore frustrating to see so many animals only existing for a key scene, before reverting to the background the rest of the time. Making all the members of a team exist is the difficulty of this kind of film, Krypto and the Super Animals crashes royal (canine) on this point.

When writing the project, however, we find two connoisseurs of DC since they wrote LEGO Batman: The Movie together. The two writers and director Sam Levine spread their love for the comic book publisher’s mythology which is felt in the many references. Starting with the music where Steve Jablonsky (composer of the five transformers) takes up the themes of Superman of John Williams and the Batman by Danny Elfman.

The imagination of Superman by Richard Donner is reused several times, as in the holograms of Krypton similar to those of the cult feature film of 1979. These elements reintroduced in Krypto and the Super Animals are aimed at a completely different audience than children, since they ask to know the previous films on the superhero to understand their logic. Finally, we obviously find nods to the comics like Kal-El’s outfit from the comics kingdom comeor a tribute to the helmet of the first Flash.

This desire to offer a generous film for superhero lovers is found especially in the fight scenes. The inventive choreographies take us, for example, in a circular tracking whose magnitude surrounds the Justice League in full confrontation. The credibility of the exchanges of overpowered strikes owes a lot to pleasurable violence in line with a man of steel with these four-legged heroes projected into buildings, before marking a pose worthy of the comics. Moments of bravery that are more impressive than some productions of the genre (like those from the studio that starts with “M” and ends with “arvel Studios”).

However, if the luminous atmospheres, the reflections of the lasers and the backgrounds in matte painting amaze, technically Krypto and the Super Animals is not perfect. The studio behind the animation of the feature film, Animal Logic (The LEGO Great Adventure), particularly shows weaknesses in the textures of its characters which appear smooth as toys. A rather annoying shortcoming when the characters are furry animals.

Only Krypto and the Super-Animals rather fulfills its role of good family entertainment in front of which a parent will not feel held hostage by his children. The film does not claim to be the superheroic slap of the summer, but is well placed to be a friendly UFO project in the line of LEGO Batman: The Moviediverting the big names of DC to better pay homage to them.
