Full movie (2016)
Egret Garth Jennings comes with his debut animation film Sing. It's obviously not his entire debut, he has already made The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and other movies, but this will be his first animation film. The script for Sing is also written by Garth himself. Eventually, the film is produced by Illumination Entertainment, which we, of course, know of the Minions.
The story is about Buster, a very enthusiastic and optimistic koala who owns a badly revolving theater. To solve his debts and to fill the empty halls, he decides to organize a grand singing contest. Even if his best friend, sheep Eddie, finds that no good idea. Buster still scraps $ 1000 as prize money for the match. However, due to a mistake by his assistant, an old lizard, the flyers claim that there is a 100,000 dollars to be won. Immediately the whole animal world is in a hurry. In the animation film, five characters are central, hoping they can change their lives with the contest: Mouse Mike, Gorilla Johnny, Pig Rosita, Elephant Meena and Porcupine Ash.
Below is the extended trailer of almost four minutes. This not only sums up the story but also makes you familiar with the characters. The film comes with a heavy load of celebrities, so the voices are spoken by Matthew McConaughy, Seth MacFarlane, Taron Egerton, Reese Witherspoon, Tori Kelly, Scarlett Johansson and Nick Kroll.
Most popular review
A too nasty pig in an overly yellow training suit that brings a pretty extravagant performance of Lady Gaga 'Bad Romance' to her. Or a sultry singing buffalo with a cool look in the eyes that shows a hit from Crazy Town. And then there are still three rabbits challenging with their fluffy tails, a crowned snail, a racing crocodile and a group of spiders. As with the many talent chants filling our television channels, the auditions of the animation film Sing make it the height or depending on your taste, the lowest point. With a wide range of different animals, the contrasts can be turned on well. As in the recent Zootropolis, the beasts in the world live by Garth Jennings and Christophe Lourdelet as human beings. And just as we have two feet, they are dreaming and unfulfilled, desires like saving a theater or becoming a world star.
In a plot that reminds us very much of the Muppet movie a few years ago, we are acquainted with Koala Buster Moon who is a director of a theater at the casino. In an effort to save his cultural paradise, the polar bear decides to write a talent hunt. Due to a mistake by his chaotic assistant (a hilarious elderly lizard with a glass eye), there is a lot too much to be seen in the prize money and the half-animal city storms on the auditions. At the same time, we see the various candidates who make up for the race to the top: a house pig with the original version of Reese Witherspoon's voice, a duo rocking porcupine, a giant mega mouse, and the shy girl elephant Meena, with her shelf fever alone Her voice dares to be heard when no one sees. Finally, there is a tough British-born gorilla Johnny in jeans and sneakers who do not dare to show his singing talent to her criminal father and friends.
Sing is packed with all kinds of hits, which the creators undoubtedly have to pay a good deal of money. Money that might have been better placed in a really exciting race to the final. The story has a good predictability in addition to a high compilation content. From the outset, it is clear what the issues are, which is largely influenced by the characters that have already been elaborated. Meena, despite her timid occurrence, will be the big star, Johnny's Johnny has a soft side and pig Rosita will get her husband's recognition and a huge herd of mini pigs. From this point of view, this animation film from Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets has certainly not got it, but in addition to an impressive voice cast, it has a high fun and gun factor. Each drawn figure has a clearly defined role and function, and Jennings has not dared to deviate from it with his efforts as a writer.
Sing is so pretty in the line, but this all man friend can just grow into a public favorite. There is a lot of noise on the line in the form of individual stories that need to be finished and the venue is definitely not in the tail. This is an animated musical film that targets a wide audience and, especially, the end of the day becomes exaggerated. The fact that there is nothing wrong with a little glamor is apparent from the musical thread that goes through this drawn adventure. Jennifer Dreamgirls Hudson treats a breathtaking interpretation of a part of The Beatles' renowned Abbey Road medley. Symbolically, from 'Golden Slumbers' to 'Carry That Weight', just as Sing tries to capture thematic.
