Home: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First, we would like to thank 20th Century Fox PH for inviting us last night to the special screening of Home at SM Megamall. Home is from the creators of The Croods and How to Train your Dragon under Dreamworks Animation. 

An alien race called the Boov led by Captain Smek (Steve Martin), relocates from planet to planet to escape their mortal enemy, the Gorg. When they reached Earth, they moved all the humans in Australia so the Boovs can start to live on their own lives. However, when a misfit Boov, Oh (Jim Parsons) accidentally sent an invite to all the Boov's and their enemy, Oh tries to run and escape his punishment. Soon, Oh crosses paths with a teenager Tip (Rihanna) who is trying to find her mom (Jennifer Lopez.) At First, they had a hard time understanding each other but an unlikely friendship form during their adventure of a lifetime.

Home is a lively and a very colorful animation. The cute boovs will make you remind about the minions, but the banana loving creatures still reign supreme. Well, the concept is full of heart that tackles more about friendship,but it's already quite familiar. It is really fun to watch. However, some of the best scenes were already spilled out on the trailer. The characters are easy to love especially Oh but it was always the pig cat stealing the show with its cute antics. Jim Parsons and Rihanna are both terrific lending their voices to the very adorable Oh and high-spirited Tip. Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez were both awesome as well, to round up its cast. 

Overall. Home didn't leave a mark unlike previous Dreamworks animated films like How to Train Your Dragon 2. However, Home had its moments and stood on its ground to be charming where it reached out to its audience easily.  It still has that Dreamworks Animation formula that can entertain its viewers of all ages and a perfect film for the whole family to enjoy.
