Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Dora and the Lost City of Gold walks a very fine line between entertaining the kids that would have more than a passing knowledge of the TV show and entertaining everyone else (kids and parents alike). And surprisingly it does it really well, riffing on The Goonies, Indiana Jones and many others along the way. The cast are obviously having fun and dora herself is endearing. The fish out of water stuff is funny and the jungle scenes exactly what you would want. In short: Dora and the Lost City of Gold is a fun action film, an entertaining kids films and a something that more than passes the time. Well worth a watch.
Best Bit: The sly opening scenes
