Movie Review: The Lorax

The Lorax, another adaptation of Dr. Seuss's tales turned into a movie.

Just in cause you don't know what is the movie all about, here is a synopsis and trailer.

From the creators of Despicable Me and the imagination of Dr. Seuss comes the 3D-CG feature The Lorax, an adaptation of the classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope.  The animated adventure follows the journey of a 12-year-old as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams.  To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.  

The movie pretty much has everything it represents in the story.

The lesson learnt in saving the trees and mother nature.

Cute little animals.

And of course wacky and quirky character and scenes.

There is also a 3D version of the movie which Jhon and I were lucky to experience and would I recommend 3D for The Lorax?
Hell YES!

As long as it's an animation movie, you can bet your movie experience will be increased tenfold in 3D. I love it that there are several parts of the scene (mostly chasing scene) where it seems that we are in a thrill ride.

We thoroughly enjoyed the movie and so will every one of every age group.

Oh yeah, throughout the movie, I found out I have a Thneed made from Truffula Tree's tufts all this while! hehe

Catch The Lorax in 3D on 8 March 2012!


  1. While the movie is funnier than the book, the drawback of this modernized version is that it loses the timeless quality of the story on the page. Still, I had a good time and it will definitely resonate well with plenty of adults and just about every kid imaginable. Great review. It's a lot better than Despicable Me though, or at least that's what I thought.

    1. I suppose they try to modernize it because they want to make it relatable to the young viewers. As in comparison to Despicable Me, it's hard to choose because Despicable Me is more inclined to emotional and cutesy stuff. Not suprised if it has a higher fan base compared to The Lorax.

      I would still recommend The Lorax to all for its storyline and wacky characters.=)

  2. The Lorax was a fun film!
