Blast from the past. It was in the early 80s when we were watching Smurfs cartoon on our televisions. And the feeling is very nostalgic seeing its 3D animation movie created by Peyo. Directed by Raja Gosnell for Columbia Pictures, this is the first film CGI live action hybrid that is produced by the film outfit. I really missed Smurfs, it was one of our favorite cartoons to watch. The movie started showing the Smurfs Village and their preparations for the upcoming Blue Moon Festival.
Wherein Clumsy Smurf continued his actions of being clumsy-ness and Papa Smurf had this vision that the Smurfs will put into trouble. While Gargamel played by Hank Azaria and his famous cute cat, Azrael (not my brother lol) had been diligently working together to capture the miniatures for Garagamel's goal to destroy Smurfs and to gain more power. That was when chasing and fighting came along and the Smurfs went into Central Park wherein real people are living in the busy streets of New York. Stars Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Winters, Jayma Mays, and Sofia Vergara were put into a difficult situation when Smurfs entered the real world. Smurfs find a way to get back from the village and looked for a portal to get in through.
Parents should not worry because the movie is a family comedy and a perfect time for you to bond with your kids. I saw it on 3D and I was amazed with the CGI Job and the characters (Smurfs family) were really colorful (blue) and looked real.
