My Take on the Movie
My family has always loved the original Grinch movie so we were excited to see what this new movie would bring. We ended up seeing this movie in the theater and we found that while it was a different interpretation to the original we all thoroughly enjoyed the plot, voice acting and new animation that was brought to this movie.
This movie, unlike the original seems to show the Grinch as knowing at least some of the Whos, if not quite a few of them. He still does not have a good liking for them as a whole but there does seem to be more connection than in the previous version.
The new style of animation allows you to really see a new world and you seem to be able to really get drawn into the world from beginning to end.
We loved Benedict Cumberbatch as the Grinch. He did a great job as a whole and truly seemed to embody the character well in my opinion. There are many other unique characters that my kids loved meeting such as Max who is an adorable character as well.
We also liked the rendition of Cindy Lou who is trying to capture Santa Claus to help her mom.
The movie itself was a very fun family movie altogether. My whole family thoroughly enjoyed the movie itself and we recommend it to all!
