This one is an excellent movie, right down to the real reason we had such movies, to impress upon our youth the morals and life lessons that would serve them as they grow up (and tone down their bratty-ness while we tried to raise them ;). Wholesome viewing seems to be (greedily) replaced by so much, whatever is selling, such as; reality shows, snapping bones, all sorts of violence, as well Special FX and zero-heroes to replace a well done script. This is one example of what was good - watching a story unfold and feeling the connection that all kids (and even adults) have, and the ability to relate to, and appreciate; the values of right and wrong, and of course; wisdom.
Here is what one of our youth critics have to say: The Lorax is a wonderful film based off of the beloved Dr. Seuss book. It shows the story of a greedy Once-ler who only thinks of himself and in his selfishness he destroys the Truffula trees. The Lorax, who speaks for the trees, tries his hardest to save the land and its inhabitance, but will his pleas be enough to stop the tyrant Once-ler? I enjoyed this film very much and I thought the cinematography was wonderful because it is exactly like the illustrations in the Dr. Seuss book. Being able to see the world through the creative eyes of Dr. Seuss is wonderful and now you can, better than ever, with the deluxe edition of The Lorax including an Ultra Violet copy of the movie. This movie delivers fantastic messages about caring for the environment and respecting the earth we live on. I like the Lorax character most because he stands up for the land and teaches that being greedy and self-centered leads to destruction. I loved all of the music in The Lorax and I especially liked the first scene when you see the land in all of its splendid glory. I give The Lorax 4 out of 5 stars for its strong messages and great classic entertainment. I suggest this film for ages 4 to 10. Raven D, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
The original book made a simple plea, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." It was a message to young children to care about the world around them and to stand up for things they believe in. It was a beautiful message then and it couldn't be more important of a message for children of today as well.
The movie sticks to the original story better than most Seuss adaptions, although it certainly hammed it up considerably to suit the kind of entertainment that kids of today are accustom to. It follows a kid named Ted who is motivated by something most people and young boys are motivated by at a certain point in their life, a girl. The world Ted lives in has been manufactured. Air is for sale. There are no trees. There is no grass or dirt. So when the object of his dreams, Audrey, tell him the story of the mythical living trees, he goes on a quest to impress and find a tree for her.
"The Lorax" is a lot of fun and has a great message about caring about the world around you. It is a good Dr. Seuss adaption with beautiful Seussish colors and characters. In a world driven by the almight dollar, "Lorax" is probably coming along at a pretty opportune time. I don't think "Lorax" has enough to push it to the top of the pack as far as animated movies go. It will probably fade into mediocrity after a few weeks, but for now, it's definitely something children and adults alike will enjoy at the movie theatre.
