As a fan of the cartoon when I was younger, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this new movie. I really enjoyed it! It was very “smurfy,” but not too much. It might seem silly to say, but these Smurfs seemed more “real” to me and had much more personality than the cartoon – almost like they could really exist! The adventure begins when they pass through a magic portal from their world and land in New York City. Besides having to deal with everything in this unknown place, their enemy, Gargamel, has followed them and is trying to capture them! They also must figure out some way to “re-open” the portal to get back to their own world before it’s too late! Luckily, they meet some nice people that are able to help them during their stay in New York – and both sides learn important life lessons from each other while having a lot of fun along the way! If you liked the cartoons or are just looking for a fun movie, I’d give this one a try! It won’t “smurf” you down!
