DUMBO (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

—completes the story of the original animated movie of Dumbo—lacks feeling and emotion. It has no soul and cannot make itself relatable on any level. Despite good coloration, the film seems dark with no human component or relatable sweetness that the original film had. The acting runs from fair to bad and even though it contains quite famous actors who are lovable and draw audiences…nothing draws an audience in this movie.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. This movie completes and rounds out the story from the original animated story of Dumbo, but it does not improve on the storyline. There is no feeling in this film.
