Paddington: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First, we would like to thank Captive Cinema for inviting us last Saturday to the special screening of Paddington at SM Megamall. The film is getting a lot of positive reviews and currently having a 98% rating at rottentomatoes website.

The film starts with a black-and-white setting where an explorer encounters a species of bears in darkest Peru. He mingles with the bears and promised that they will receive a warm welcome if ever they visited London. Years later, Paddington (voiced by Xian Lim) is happily living with his uncle Pastuzo (Michael Gambon) and aunt Lucy (Imelda Staunton) doing some of their marmalade specialties. However, when an earthquake destroyed their home, Paddington's only destination would be London where he tries to find a family and a new home.

Paddington is simply entertaining and adorable in all means. It is a fresh family-oriented film that easily captivates the hearts of its viewers' thanks to its very cuddly likable bear. We can all appreciate the CGI effects that are neatly done, making Paddington feel so alive on the screen. The story is also easy to follow where Paddington provides a comedy in a sincere fashion aiming a decent approach to its younger audience. It also managed to produce sweet moments,so the adults won't get bored and actually have some fun while watching it with the kids. 

The cast did a great job in being whimsy to add more entertainment to the already colorful feature. Nicole Kidman plays the villain in a fun way without being annoying while Xian Lim also did well lending his smart voice to Paddington.

Overall, Paddington is loving and charming in its own way. It is visually impressive, and it is impossible not to love the cute bear, especially when he is on the screen.  This film definitely needs a sequel and the sooner the better as we are just one of the newest fans of this awesome furry little creature.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 9 out of 10 stars
