HORTON HEARS A WHO! (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

Horton Hears a Who!—computer animated—creates WOW! entertainment for nearly any audience. Exceptionally talented people took this simple children’s story and, unbelievably, made it into a full-length film that does not flag nor does it ‘stuff and fluff’ itself to create a movie that should have been a short film. Every minute of this full-length movie relies on the best story-telling techniques, fully developed characters, and a wonderful conclusion that completely satisfies.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie easily earns its watch. The perfect child/adult share. Don’t make a mistake and pass this one by. It is sophisticated, beautifully done entertainment that sits at the high end of the movie spectrum.
