Family/Animated Week: Paddington (2014) **REVIEW**

I always wanted to see this film so when it got released on DVD I just couldn’t resist.

Paddington is a little bear from Peru and one day a huge earthquake ruins his and his aunts and uncles home and his uncle didn’t survive the earthquake. So Paddingtons aunt takes him to a boat and tells him to go to London. 40 years ago an explorer came to Peru and told the bears about London and told them they are welcome at anytime. Bare in mind – these bears aren’t like any other bears. They can speak and acts very much like humans.

When Paddington arrives to London a family of four sees him, the father thinks he’s a salesman but the mother and the children take liking to him. And it’s here where the adventure starts. They help him to find the explorer while he stays and their place. And of course, the father is not liking that idea very much and thinks everything is a risk and you have to be careful.

The film is absolutely the cutest thing ever coming out of British Films. You see big starts in the film as Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville and Julie Walters. Totally recommended to watch on a rainy day and any person in your family, at any age will LOVE this film.

You see actors like Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Julie Walters, Samuel Joslin, Ben Whishaw, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon and Sally Hawkins.




My Lord, have this movie been bashed by most people I know. Been told to not waste my time to see it and seen reaction videos on youtube – they are pure entertainment btw. But I thought – screw them. I want to get my own opinion about the movie. So here it goes.

In 1999 in the Phillippines a mine collapsed and about 40 minors went down in a huge hole. What they found in that hole – something went out and into the ocean. Something big and very uncomfortable. Then we see a family living in Japan, Joe, Sandra & Ford. Joe and Sandra works in a power plant and they have been getting some reading. Soon as they get there something goes horrible wrong. Sandra dies in a chamber when the reactor went out shortly after the entire power plant goes down.. Poor Ford see’s the plant go down from his school window.

We jump 15 years in time and Ford is an adult and coming home from being in war. He got now a family of his own and lives in San Francisco. Joe is still alive and still lives in Japan. Ford have to go over there due to his father have gone into quarantine zone and got arrested. Ford goes over there to bail him out and help him. Joe is set that the power plant distruction wasn’t an accident, he believes it was something else. Ford and Joe goes back to the zone and their old house to find disc with data that Joe needs, because he found something. Also, they find the air isn’t lethal, it’s perfectly breathable.

Something is about get woken up again and the military is desperate to have this hidden from the public. But what happens when it can’t be hidden anymore? What happens when it’s about to wake up and send destruction upon everyone?

You see actors like Aaron Tyler-Johnson, CJ Adams, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Carson Bolde, Sally Hawkins, Richard. T Jones, Juliette Binoche and many more. I liked the movie and if you would like to see it, then I would recommend it for you. But if you ask me, they could have done a better job with the graphics of the monsters. I got a little disappointed there.
