Article Excerpt:

Tim here.2017 is shaping up to be a less-than-inspired year for movies in general,but particularly dire for animation (apologies to theCars 3superfans,I'm sure there's at least a couple of you in this world).The bar has fallen low enough that I even managed to convince myself that there might be some merit to checking outSmurfs: The Lost Village,which arrived on DVD this week.The first of three Sony Picture Animation features to come out in 2017 (the second,The Emoji Movie,is mere weeks away,and boy does it look like it will be bad),The Lost Villageis the latest attempt to keep the small blue woodland homunculi called Smurfs in English,Schtroumpfs in the original French,viable as a marketable brand.

In an astonishing twist,it is not very good.

At least we can say this in favor of the film: it's entirely animated.The last two Smurfs features made by Sony (otherwise unrelated toThe Lost Village) were live-action hybrids,in which little animated Smurfs came out to horrifyingly deal with the real New York City.Now,they're where they belong,in a busily designed magic forest,facing a proper cartoon villain and his cartoon cat.So far as that goes,honestly,The Lost Villageis even a pretty nice film to look at...
