“Sing” Review: Explosive Performances, Tedious Storytelling

SING (2016) Review
Directed by Garth Jennings, Christophe Lourdelet

With colorful characters, explosive song and dance sequences, Sing gives the ultimate entertainment to its audience. But unfortunately, a film has to be more than that.

How it manages to pull off incredible song and dance sequences, Sing however, suffers from its multiple characters story. But the film’s main goal is to entertain and it pretty much gives all it has got from cute variety of animal characters that does not only sing and dance but really perform. Their stage presence whenever they perform lights up the movie, pushing the energy of the film higher.

But following its story is tedious. There’s a lot happening and you’ll find it hard to find your focus in any of its characters. And that’s disappointing from something that can has a lot of heart in it. While it may not mark as one of the best animated films ever, Sing definitely made sure that you’ll have a fantastic experience worth your time and money.
