Moshi Monsters – The Movie

Today H was treated to a film of her choice (last Christmas it was Tinkerbell). She opted for Moshi Monsters The Movie as I suspected she would. Here’s our thoughts…

Moshi Monsters The Movie

Moshi Monsters The Movie was witten about on here earlier this year, and we’ve been looking forward to seeing it since. For H it was everything she wanted. The film contains mild peril which wasn’t Finding-Nemo-style scary, but I’d pre-warned H in case it was. For the 80 or so minutes the film ran she had a big happy smile on her face and plenty of questions to ask at the end.

If your child likes Moshi Monsters, chances are they’ll love the film. It’s certified a U so a fairly safe bet.

The plot. There’s a Moshling Egg which Buster Bumblechops has in his possession (as he is Monstro City’s biggest Moshling collector), which goes on display at his house. However, the evil Dr Strangeglove steals it, and it’s up to Katsuma and Poppet to get it back, accompanied by some of the other Moshi Monsters.

Of course, it being a kids movie there’s a happy ending, yet another egg is discovered so there’s a chance of a sequel, maybe? Who can say, it has only been on release for a few days…

There’s plenty of songs in there, and there seemed to be several happy kids in the cinema too.

Our post-film thoughts. I got it, followed it and was able to explain to H where she was confused. The main thing she was stuck on was why the baddies were left at the end, and what happened to them. Shaun was confused by the whole plot, though may have fallen asleep at some point (most expensive sleep he’s had since Tinkerbell, I think…). H thought it was brilliant and loved that Poppet and Luvli both featured (her two favourites) and asked several times why Poppet was sad (this was Mr Snoodle related). Shaun felt there were too many characters involved, which I’d disagree with, so I think a basic knowledge of the monsters is needed.

If your child loves the Moshi Monsters, then Moshi Monsters The Movie is definitely for them – in all good cinemas now!
