    MOVIE REVIEW: MR AND MRS INCREDIBLE, YOGI BEAR

    MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLE (PG13)

    Genre: Comedy
    Release Date: 03 February 2011
    Distributor: Golden Screen Cinemas
    Director: Vincent Kok
    Starring: Louis Koo, Sandra Ng
    Plot: In ancient China, superhero Huan (Louis Koo) falls in love with a female superhero called Red (Sandra Ng). They decide to retire and move to a small village for the sake of starting a family. Five years passes and they now live a happy and quiet life until a martial arts competition is being held in the very village they live. They plan to leave the village for good but end up being tangled in a conspiracy to murder the champion. To find out the identity of the mastermind, Huan and Red must don superhero costumes one more time in the name of justice.

    Short Reviews: In general, Mr and Mrs Incredible works at the right tone. It is a movie full of comedic slapsticks with great combination of well-acted and well-versed scripts. The premise is simple, interrogating a life of superheroes who fall in love with each other and then retired from donning the costumes. Marriage life brought them into a small village and decided to live a normal live. The first hour of the movie is promisingly entertaining and limitless in non-sense, coupled with a perfect chemistry formed by Louis Koo and Sandra Ng, the movie has a great start. The plot flows out great but not until the last 15 minutes where things get a little cranky and out of control. The non-senses do not work well but once again, I am reminding myself that this is just another movie that soothes on for the festive season. Here, Mr and Mrs Incredible is a mindless but workable movie that you can enjoy.

    THE RATING:
    Story: 2.5
    Casts: 4.0
    Cinematography: 3.0
    Effects: 3.0
    GREEN-TEA-O-METER: 12.5/20.0

    YOGI BEAR (U)

    Genre: Adventure/Animation
    Release Date: 03 February 2011
    Distributor: Warner Bros.
    Director: Eric Brevig
    Starring: Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh
    Plot: Everyone's favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in "Yogi Bear". Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown (Andy Daly) decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors and, even worse, Yogi (Dan Aykroyd) and Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake) will be tossed out of the only home they've ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is "smarter than the average bear" as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.

    Short Reviews: During the 70s, Yogi Bear is a favourite animation in the past time and the tradition continues even till this day. Yogi Bear and Boo Boo are naturally hilarious character meant for kids. Yes, Yogi Bear is a movie meant to dedicate its target audience but the movie seems mediocre at best. The plot of the movie about Yogi and Boo Boo try to save their forest looks authentic and true to its original matter, but is not executed well because of its dumbness. The TV animations do not feel so much as insulted as this. Even the most ridiculous acts are all in this movie, plus the worst fact that Yogi Bear provides only little amusement and mildly entertaining. They look cute but utterly annoying. Overall, it feels too much to akin itself like Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 which I thought similarly rubbish and uninteresting. Enough said, kids. Rent a DVD instead!

    THE RATING:
    Story: 1.5
    Casts: 2.5
    Cinematography: 3.0
    Effects: 3.5
    GREEN-TEA-O-METER: 8.8/20.0
