Atom User Reviews for Dumbo
nice collaboration of new mixed with old. I loved it, being a fan of the original.
It was so good! The characters were great, the story was inspiring, and the visuals were stunning
Me and my mom saw this and we both loved it! Tim Burton did a fantastic job, you won't be disappointed!
The CGI elephant with no lines is better than the rest of the cast in this movie.
Nowhere near the original! Lacks heart. Terrible acting and WAY too long. Story is very choppy and characters are underdeveloped.
The critics reviews are terrible. Well worth an afternoon out at the movies to see this!!!
I really wanted to love this movie, but the acting by some was pretty bad...with the little girl being the worst. It sucked because she was supposed to he the emotional core of the movie, trying to connect the audience to Dumbo more...but it was just distracting and took me out of the movie. Dumbo hinself was the best part of watching it and that is what redeemed it for me when I would get annoyed.
Dumbo’s mom has a weird story line that could have been better, other than that it was ok
Great family entertainer
Really well done movie. Enjoyed it.
Acting was wooden, making Dumbo feel more real. It was a perfect combo of pathos for a Disney movie (Mother issues) and a Burton film (Daddy issues) but it feels like Burton really phoned this one in...or was overly contained by the mouse house.
Music didn't meet expectations for a Disney movie.
I was expecting more. I wanted to see Timothy (at least more than what they shown) and Mr. Stork and more of the other elephants. I’m a little disappointed.
It made me cry alot and all in my feels.
A bit of a tear jerker. But super cute and heart warming happy ending.
Speaks to the heart
The best part of the whole movie was Dumbo, a CGI elephant that was more interesting than the rest of the cast. There was some interesting ideas going on that by the end didn't pull through, leaving a hollow feeling. Like i said before, I cared more about Dumbo than anything. i just wish it focused mkre on how his abnormal appearance made a connection with the other circus performers, especially the dad. Not a terrible film, just wanted more from it.
When that visual leaves a more captivating impression than a baby elephant spreading its ears and getting airborne like a glider, something is definitely off in the balance. The new Dumbo holds the attention but too seldom tugs at the heartstrings.
This live-action remake of the 1941 Disney animated classic finds the eccentric, inconsistent filmmaker tapping into his career’s core emotional themes and, on occasion, Dumbo has the magic and wonder of his best work. (And that blue-eyed baby elephant is awfully cute.) But there remains a frustrating impersonality — not to mention an audience familiarity with his well-worn aesthetic — that keeps the film from soaring all that high.
Dumbo’s great skill, flying around a tent in a circle, becomes a little old after it’s repeated ad naseam over the course of two full hours. Adorable though he may be, Dumbo’s kind of a one-trick pony, in a matter of speaking.
