3.0 out of 5 stars Top Cat: The Movie review, 2 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Top Cat: The Movie [DVD] (DVD)
The results for remakes are mixed. Some work well and some are poor. Does Top Cat: The Movie work well? Having watched Top Cat, I would say it does not beat the original series of the 1960s. Top Cat holds an iconic place as one of the finest cartoons during the decade. Hanna Barbera is renowned for bringing household cartoons to our screen. I am glad it has remained faithful in retaining the original cartoon style of Top Cat in the 21st century. There is some CGI used to a certain degree. It is nice to see the original features included in the updated version of Top Cat. All the original characters are featured. I really love the dialogues and gags between Top Cat's adversary Officer Chief Dibble and the cats in the opening sequences. This is one of my favourite moments of the animation. Top Cat comes across as charming and mischievous. The animation is in line to modern times, as you are about to observe. Depsite a few positves, the storyline let the animation down. It is far too predictable and gets a very boring following a promising start for at least twenty minuites. I do not like the nonsense of the modern gimmicks. It really spoilt the storyline to some extent. Why not stick to the jokes and witty of the original series? To me, the modern version lacks the simplicity and grace as the original series. There is humour, but not on same level as the original series. Today generation of kids would enjoy Top Cat, as it is designed for kids. As a 34 years old brought up with the animation, I am critical about it similiar to other reviewers. There are plus points and flaws with Top Cat; The Movie. On fair reflection, I would reward three stars.

You know this movie does contain CGI backgrounds and props - the helicopter in the opening scene is a clear example of this.
