Simple and SolidBy vidmon (59 reviews) , 12 Oct 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]The latest film from Sony Animation Films is a simple and solid watch for the audience.
The synopsis provided is a fraction incorrect, as it's a simple backpacker who comes to the Hotel for Monsters in Transylvania.
The films animation is as expected all round well done though not particularly extraordinary, the plot is simple and has been done before think Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School meets Finding Nemo.
The characters are well done, with Sandler's Dracula a good watch, as are Samberg's backpacker and Gomez's Maven. However the latter two do not really need to stretch their acting abilities.
In the end it's nothing more than a solid 90 minutes of entertainment which will keep the kids happy. Just wait for the DVD.

Great Film!By yanbart (135 reviews) , 09 Nov 2013As rated my by son, 'Great' he said. I didn't watch it so cannot comment myself but his rating is good enough for me!
Nice Sunday afternoon filmBy Storymaker (19 reviews) , 03 Nov 2013The story is pretty simple and the structure straight forward but of course this is a kids film. Unlike other kids films i really love this story and the characters involved, great for the kids and not too bad for the adults!
Humanised monstersBy a customer , 03 Nov 2013There were some good moments in this movie, but on the whole it was rather dull. The entire monster theme was not fully woven into the love story. So at the end of the day it was typical and predictable.
Worth 4 starsBy a customer , 12 Oct 2013What a fantastic reversal of roles. For an animation it was extremely well written, the plot, characters and story line were very nearly faultless. It amazes me how much the writers of animations can get away with. I'm sure a lot of the humour goes over children's heads. It was a good laugh and an easy to watch film. If you like Monsters Inc and the like, you'll enjoy this.
