A disunited family must find a way to work together in the aftermath of a robot apocalypse.
This film blew my mind, defying expectations and making a bold statement on the importance of staying together to battle seemingly insurmountable odds.
The Mitchells are a family only in name; they can't seem to get along and the patriarch's relationship with his teenage daughter is the film's major conflict.
When robots created to help humanity unexpectedly stage an uprising, capturing every human (except the titular family of course) in the world, it falls on the dysfunctional heroes to brace up, put their differences aside, and save the day.
I wasn't particularly thrilled with the character designs but midway through this visually delightful movie, I forgot all about that and was lost in the plot.
The humour is rib-cracking, the action engaging, and the characters totally relatable. The actors give mesmerizing vocal performances and the director, Rianda makes one heck of a fun movie in his directorial debut.
I love the various artistic illustrations used to depict the moods at different points, and even though the villain is cheesy in a predictable way, it doesn't stop the film from being awesome.
The Mitchells vs. the Machines is one of the best animated comedies ever made and I urge all fans of the genre to see it if they haven't.
