Storyline

Surly and his friends, Buddy, Andie and Precious discover that the mayor of Oakton City is cracking one big hustle to build a giant yet quite-shabby amusement park, which in turn will bulldoze their home, which is the city park, and it's up to them and the rest of the park animals to stop the mayor, along with his daughter and a mad animal control officer from getting away with his scheme, and take back the park.

Weak story, great animation. Not that bad.
14 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Felt it was a lot better than it's box office gross is stating

The very weak subtitle gives you an idea of how stupid the plot was going to be. The story was very week for an animated feature. I always expect better stories when it comes to children's based animation, but somehow the story did not click. Too clunky and overstuffed making it too unclear to hit the mark.

The animation was good, however. Loved the character design, especially the lead squirrel, Surly. In fact, all the characters looked cool,and the motion of the picture was great. The movie would have done better if they turned off the sound (or just the the unfunny dialog) so we can just watched the characters move around. The good animation had a lot to do with the fact that they were adjusting everything for the 3D purchasers, which is fine. It's a perfect 3D movie.

Plus I liked the end credits with outtakes from Jackie Chan, who had a small role in the film. If you are a Chan fan it will make you smile.

Overall, bad story to great animation. I've seen the vise versa. It's usually story over animation., which would most likely make for a better picture, overall.
