The One and Only Ivan

The One and Only Ivan ★★★

Fantastic CGI and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. 

    Very heartfelt. This is a film that the world needed rn. The messages the film sends not only to kids but to all who watch it is really inspiring. The film teaches you that anything is possible. It makes you believe in the good of others as well as the power that love and friendship possesses. It shows us that things will get better. And they do get better. 
    The voice cast was pretty good. I was surprised how many good actors were actually in it, I didn’t even realize Angelina Jolie and Sam Rockwell did the voices until the very end. Danny Devito is awesome tho, Bob the dog was my favorite character for sure. Brooklyn Prince was also a cute surprise, only film I’ve seen her in is The Florida Project so it was cool to hear her voice. She did a good job as Ruby. 
    The CGI was breathtaking. The animals looked so real it was scary. Every single hair you could see it just looked like real animals talking honestly. Better then the Lion King tbh. 
    Overall, The One and Only Ivan is a pretty good film. It’s a sweet, heartwarming, feel good film that the whole family can enjoy. It’ll make you laugh and it’ll also make you sad. I honestly really enjoyed this film. I was nonstop smiling throughout the entire run time. Ending was awesome as well but feels slightly rushed. 


Never read the book when I was younger but now I wish I had.
