Storyline

In Sony Pictures Animation's THE STAR, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told - the first Christmas.

Sony do bible
19 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Praying donkey? This just wow. Like an angel who talk with bunch of sheep's (they show shepherds, but... he talk to the sheep's anyway). Or two atheistic camels. I mean, with all this - its anyway not bad film for normal kids. But send this Christian message? No. Its more like insult for christians (with jokes about kiss my feathers), than do something for propaganda their ideas. When Bo say "donkey kick" its obviously was "donkey punch", because all we know how Sony animated films filled with memes. Good one but not in a kid movie AGAIN. And its really "sweet" when in 6+ talk so many about killing babes and others. I think in this rating don't really necessary use words like "dead", "death" and "kill". And its really strange when you start film for kids from such disturbing scene like impregnation of Maria. But, anyway like kids movie for Christmas its good, have funny moments, looks like promising successor for "Open Season" with better graphics. Cant wait 6 or 7 DTV releases - keep donkey and friend, but put Bible away. Maybe they can go through other fairy tales.
