Ron's Gone Wrong

Ron's Gone Wrong ★★★½

Wasn’t originally planning on seeing this in theaters, but one thing led to another, and I ended up going to see it. And I must say, I’m quite happy I did, because this was a really delightful movie. I liked it a lot. The animation here looks great, very detailed and always nice to look at. Very nice style here. It was pretty funny, got quite a few laughs out of me. The overall story, while not exactly anything too stand-out, was still done very well, and I really enjoyed all of the characters. I especially loved the titular Ron, he was great. I did get pretty invested in the story and by the end I was pretty satisfied with where it went. The writing was mostly strong, not every joke was a winner and some aspects didn’t quite work 100% for me, but it was all still good. I enjoyed myself a lot throughout this one, as I said, it is really delightful. Some very solid voice-acting all around too, Zach Galifianakis doing particularly well here. And also, if I didn’t know Olivia Colman was playing the grandma, I would’ve never recognized her. Pretty cool how easily she’s able to go between extremely intense dramatic roles and really funny animated roles, in the same year even. But anyway, I really enjoyed watching this, and it’s quite disappointing that the box office for this is what it is. It deserves a whole lot better.
