Smurfs: The Lost Village

The little blue guys are back. No, the cast of avatar haven’t borrowed Alice’s shrinking potion, it’s just the smurfs.

Established in the 1980s, the Smurf’s are still going strong, though admittedly they’ve had a bit of animator makeover in recent years.

This new tale finds Smurf village in a little bit of a rut, as their only girl smurf is coming to terms with her lack of female company.

In Smurfette’s attempt to find purpose in an all boy village, she happens upon the location of a new smurf village, where all the smurf inhabitants are girls. However, the euphoria of this find is soon disturbed by the Smurfs greatest enemy; the wizard, Gargamel.

As with many family animations, this film fills the screen with eye popping colours and fantastical characters, with a fire-breathing dragon fly being one of the most notable inclusions.

Despite, fundamentally, being a  family-orientated adventure, the film manages to incorporate a more mature element of humour, to keep the adults from thinking they’re in an LSD induced coma. It is, therefore, a film to be enjoyed by the whole family.
