DanTheMan123’s review published on Letterboxd:
I don't know why/how but this film just really clicked with me...sure I've been wanting to watch this for quite some time but I never really expected to love it as much as I did for some odd reason, thankfully there is a lot to love about this film. This film is directed by Wes Anderson and stars George Clooney,Bill Murray,Jason Schwartzman, Meryl Streep,Eric Chase Anderson,Willem Dafoe,Wallace Wolodarsky and Owen Wilson in this film that is impressive and overall a VERY fun watch from beginning to end. First off, the stop-motion animation is TOP-NOTCH, there is no doubt that a ton of work was put into this. The script and overall story as a whole is very well written and the addition of Wes Anderson's style of direction really made this into quite an experience as a whole. The cinematography is also something that deserves the spotlight as the whole film was a real treat to the eye. The score is also pretty good too. The voice cast did a fantastic job with these characters...especially George Clooney, he absolutely disappeared into his role as Mr. Fox. I did like it when the film took some time to have a couple of scenes with some more serious tones also. The pacing and structure to the film was very good and by the end of it I was satisfied with what the film had to offer as a whole. While I still prefer Moonrise Kingdom I still think that this is a fantastic film in not only the genre of animation but for film as a whole, if you haven't checked this out then I highly recommend you do so cause it's quite a journey.
