A failure!
4 February 2018 | by realart_dsSee all my reviews

A film without grace and without a well-executed script, an unfortunate montage, a flat photography, nothing innovative, nothing fun and completely a waste in something that many of us who grew up watching the cartoon would have enjoyed if the right decisions had been made, starting with-how the movie was made, and having a better direction.

A plot forced to give a half message of father son relationship, with themes of divorce and young stepmother that nothing fits into a movie where the protagonist should be woody. But mistakenly they put him as a third actor, and focus more on the plot of the poor child with separated parents, and an absent father who seeks to recover the place with his son.

I think the correct line would have been pure animation, without the need to interact with the real human world, in this way they would have brought to the plot characters that complete woody like Buzz Buzzard, Wally walrus to name a few, and maybe in its second part and to have an interaction with humans, in the human world, as it was the new series.
