Dumbo Review

Rotten Tomatoes
Dumbo, Disney commercialization at its most plain and forgettable. The only compelling element of this film is its cute lead elephant, all of the human characters are hardly developed and ultimately feel shallow. Looking for wondrous visuals? Don’t expect much in this drearily shot film. Outside of the introduction to Dreamland and a scene involving elephant bubbles, this is one of the blandest looking Tim Burton films. Was the lack of Johnny Depp leaving him a bit uninspired? Only interested in seeing this film for Danny Devito? Well, he goes underused, so you’re sort of out of luck there too. It’s not that Dumbo is a bad film, but more a safe, mediocre film that passes by on studio and name recognition. I’d write a longer review, but I fear it wouldn’t be worth my time or yours to read it. Very simply, do not pay premium dollars to see this movie. 6/10
