Moshi Monsters: The Movie (2013)

Moshi Missed the Mark

The discovery of the Great Moshling Egg has become major news in the world of the Moshi Monsters with Katsuma, Poppet, Mr. Snoodle all watching in interest when this discovery is announced on TV. But these Moshi Monster friends are going to have to work together to save the day when the evil Dr. Strangeglove and his incompetent Glump sidekick Fishlips decide they want to crush the egg.

I wish I had got to watch "Moshi Monsters: The Movie" with a group of children from various ages so I could see how they took to it. As such I am just guessing then I say that if you have young children then this animated movie might entertain them. It has extremely quirky characters, lots of funny voices, vibrant colours and even a musical element. I'm not sure how those older than say eight might take to it as it is one of those sort of animations which are built on nonsense and simplicity.

So whilst I have to say that "Moshi Monsters: The Movie" is intended for a young audience I have to say that as an adult it did nothing for me, failing to work as a family entertainment. Truth be told it didn't take long for the quirky characters, quirky voices and colourful nonsense to get on my nerves. Strangely that disappointed me because I actually liked the simplicity of the animation work and found it pleasantly unfussy but not so basic that it felt weak.

What this all boils down to is that "Moshi Monsters: The Movie" is in my opinion a movie for young children and young children only with its quirky, colourful and often noisy characters. As such whilst for me it didn't work, and the reason for my lower rating, I do think it will keep young children entertained.
