“To put it simply, Fantastic Mr. Fox is unlikely to leave you disappointed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor a start, the animation, is simply wonderful. Gorgeously designed backgrounds and scenery full of simply incredible attention to detail, the film is full of such loving care and attention. Each character feels full of personality and itu0026#39;s refreshing to see something other than a glossy 3D rendered animation film for a change most certainly. It feels like a return to a day where a little imagination was expected in films, which is nice.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eComparing Pixar releases and this film is besides the point. This film wasnu0026#39;t made to be compared or compete with others, it was made to tell a classic childrenu0026#39;s tale by one of the greatest authors at writing them. Dahlu0026#39;s wife Felicity herself has described her delight at how the film portrays the universe great author created and the modification of the story for film length is smoothly and smartly done. It is a beautifully told story, heart-warming and charming, witty and full of comedic moments.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile Pixar films play like films made for children that can be enjoyed by adults. Wes Andersonu0026#39;s film feels like one made for adults, that can be enjoyed by children. Some parents may not feel too comfortable of the less than subtle replacement of curse words with u0026quot;cussu0026quot; or u0026quot;cussingu0026quot; it has to be mentioned however.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe voice acting is excellently done, Anderson took the cast outside, underground and indoors for the varying parts of the film to give it a real feel of authenticity which pays off. The soundtrack, as with all Wes Anderson films, is stunningly good and really elevates the film. After watching you may find yourself searching out the soundtrack as soon as you get home.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe filmu0026#39;s style and direction screams Wes Anderson at the top of its lungs and so, haters of his previous work may need to be careful, but I would certainly suggest to give the film a try and see if it can convert you, if not at least not make you feel like youu0026#39;ve wasted your money.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs a self confessed Wes Anderson fan I was doomed to love this film no matter what, but am genuinely delighted with the end product and believe that more than just the blind Wes Anderson lover will find this film a charming, witty ride of enjoyment.”
