The Grinch

Very mild threat.

About this Film

The Grinch

ODEON says...
‘The Grinch’ lives alone in a cave, and he likes peace and quiet. When his neighbours’ Christmas celebrations threaten to disrupt his tranquillity, there’s only one option: to steal Christmas. 

They’re going to make this Christmas three times bigger than usual, so the Grinch’s only choice is to be even more mean to teach them a lesson. And so he disguises himself as Father Christmas to carry out his scheme… 

Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice of ‘The Grinch’ in this retelling of the classic story from the creators of ‘Despicable Me’ and ‘Sing’.

Not for me

Reviewer: Rella xXxDate: 2018-11-16

It was ok. If you've seen the trailer you've seen all the funny bits. No where near as good as Jim Carreys version. Not even close.

Dull, Safe Pitch

Reviewer: EdgeworthDate: 2018-11-14

Visuals may look nice, but the plot of the story is too safe and clumsy. You're supposed to see The Grinch and first think, "that's a bad guy!" But no. Illumination wants to throw a safe pitch with zero risks. I worry about their next project Mario.


Reviewer: Tell It Like It IsDate: 2018-11-13

Now Disney should look at how Illumination did this. They told a great story, made it hilarious and colourful so it appeals to kids and adults and didn't try to push any kind of agenda. Absolutely great. Well done. Loved it!
