‘Sing’ falls a little flat
My review is about the movie: Sing, Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.
So, basically Maricar Estrella said that the movie: Sing "falls a little flat"... Falls a litte flat where? Yes, The movie wants to be the cartoon version of The Voice. Yet, audience members don’t get enough of an original story to want to turn their chairs around. The movie doesn’t come close to the humor and heart of the studio’s summer hit, The Secret Life Of Pets. Also, The film follows Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), a down-on-his-luck koala. He’s trying to save his crumbling theater so he decides to stage a singing competition to lure folks back. Buster is cute, cuddly and somewhat smarmy in his dealings. You want to like the character but you don’t fall in love with him because in a world where reality shows have hit their peak, the concept seems a bit tired. Even the fast-paced, zoom intro of the five lead contestants doesn’t keep one’s attention long enough to really care for these critters, who are, in no particular order, Mike (Seth MacFarlane), a con-artist mouse who croons; Meena (Tori Kelly), a shy elephant stricken with stage fright; Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), a singing sow with a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Taron Egerton), a gangster gorilla; and Ash (Scarlett Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine.
Honestly, in my opinion... I love this movie because I love how Buster Moon tries everything in his power to keep the theater "alive" by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Even though problems arise when the prize offered is mistakenly advertised as $100,000, which Buster doesn’t have. Buster Moon still had faith in himself, and the theater. Like Moon said "When you've reached rock bottom, there's only one way to go, and that's up!" I live by that qoute everyday, so I thank him for that.
Some people like Maricar Estrella Might disagree with me because the same reasons Maricar Estrella made, well they're wrong... GIVE THE MOVIE A CHANCE!!!!
