Peter Rabbit (2018) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s a shame that Peter Rabbit takes so many missteps because, at it’s heart, it’s got all the pieces in place to have been a good film. This said Sony need some serious guidance on how to script edit – there’s no way the berry sequence (which sees a man who is allergic to berries almost killed) should have got past the first draft, if even that.   Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson are good as the lead humans but James Cordon just gets grating as the titular character, who itself i possibly the least likeable animated character in some years.  All this is kind of a mute point however as my daughter loved the film.  So one for the kids then…

Best Bit: The CGI effects are outstanding

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Paddington 2, Big Hero 6, The Box Trolls
