The Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Fantastic Mr. Fox – Movie Review
It is the story of one Mr. Fox and his wild-ways of hen heckling, turkey taking and cider sipping, nocturnal, instinctive adventures. He has to put his wild days behind him and do what fathers do best: be responsible. He is too rebellious. He is too wild. He is going to try “just one more raid” on the three nastiest, meanest farmers that are Boggis, Bunce and Bean. It is a tale of crossing the line of family responsibilities and midnight adventure and the friendships and awakenings of this country life that is inhabited by Fantastic Mr. Fox and his friends.
Pick of the Week!
The Fantastic Mr. Fox is just as good as you’ve heard it is. The animation is very un-Disney, but very interesting. It’s Les Anderson’s and who knew he could do animation? It’s George Clooney at his probably very best, Meryl Streep at her most mellifluous. I know, what a word. I really loved this. It’s interesting, it keeps you entranced, it’s got an interesting moral. You actually care about the characters even though their animals. It’s just a very good movie. Four stars.
