funny and touching movie
13 January 2016 | by katavarhelyiSee all my reviews

Amongst it's genre, this movie is a very funny and well-dosed one. All the characters are perfectly written, even the animated ones. The creators found a great balance between being funny and staying touching, between the human and monster world. Made me cry, Huba is just too cute to bear. Not to mention the visual orgy of this one. I respect how the Asian filmmakers show all the impossible as possible, I mean: all the action and fun stuff in this movie is very entertaining. Definitely recommend this movie if you like it's genre. The actors are nailing it, you can relate to most of them. There is no thing such as 'too much' in Chinese movies. Emotions and fun are just as important as the action part. The reason why I gave it only an '8' is the end of the movie. I wanted something else. Left me a bit hungry.
