The Wild Life Movie Review

The Wild Life is a new re-telling of the classic Robinson Crusoe tale ideal for younger audiences.

The Wild Life Movie Review

We were invited to a screening of The Wild Life that opens today.

‘From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.” No matter their differences, castaway human and quirky animals embark on an hilarious new adventure, building the island’s first tree-house and surviving together. But when two conniving members of the animal kingdom — the savage cats Mal & May – pounce into a battle for control of the island, Crusoe and his animal posse must uncover the true power of friendship against all odds (even savage cats).’

The Wild Life Movie Review

My kids (8, 6, and 4) really enjoyed it, and although I was worried about the cats and pirates being a little scary they didn’t seem to mind at all. There were moments throughout that were very funny, but it was a little slow at times for my husband. The animal antics made the kids crack up, and I liked the little bird Kiki (my son’s nickname). The animation was beautiful and I enjoyed all the tropical elements and the addition of a lively soundtrack.


The Wild Life opens nationwide today (9/9).
