As you may realise and know, there are so many films being released each week now, that it’s almost impossible for me to go out into the world and review them, so occasionally I might need some help. I have got some this week, from Miss Holly Smith who has reviewed Moshi Monsters – The Movie for you, my loyal readers. I hope you enjoy it and for one so young (age 6) I can see a big future in film criticism for her.
For those who don’t know (me included) Moshi Monsters started life as a website for 6 to 14 year olds that has become an internet sensation. Users choose a character and then they nurture it, until they become big enough to enter Monstro City where they take daily challenges and puzzles. The site has spawned many spin-offs, including toys, magazines, an album? and now a feature-length movie. I will let Holly now take over…
Moshi Monsters: The Movie is a film about Moshi Monsters. It stars Katsuma and Poppet and their friends. In the movie, Dr Strangeglove stole the rare moshling egg and the Moshi Monsters go on an adventure to find Dr Strangeglove to get the egg and give it back to Buster Bumblechops.
The movie had lots of Moshi Monsters and moshlings, I recognised lots of them. The main characters were Katsuma, Poppet, Furri, Luvli, Diavlo and Zommer and they were great! The baddies were Dr. Strangeglove and the Glumps, they were horrible and funny.
This film was colourful, a little bit scary and funny. I enjoyed this movie it was good. There were some songs in the movie which were nice. This film made me feel happy.
I think people who like Moshi Monsters would like this film. Children who don’t know about Moshi Monsters might like this film. I do not think adults would like this film. It’s lots of fun but not everyone will like this film.
