This one I saw like a million years ago, at least it seems like it has been that long. The whole reason why I watched this was because I really like James McAvoy and he was the voice of Gnomeo while Emily Blunt was Juliet. Like the name of the movie implies, the story is about Romeo and Juliet as gnomes – I have to admit, it sounds clever. Gnomeo is the prince of the blues and Juliet is the princess of reds. This is just like in the original story, they fall in love, the families have a long history of feud going on they fight and stuff but the end is a bit different. The end is less tragic and more like happy and stuff – surprise surprise.

It is hard to say anything about this animation because it lacked those unforgettable characters and bunch lines, like for instance I still remember the Ice Age’s “Fish!” moment and Shrek’s “In the morning, I’m making waffles!” – those are some really good moments and to be fair, I don’t remember anything specific about Gnomeo and Juliet. This said, I would think that this animation is quite average and is not as entertaining for adults as for instance Ice Age and Shrek could be. So from me 2 out of 5 for this one and mostly because of James McAvoy’s and Jason Statham’s voices that were like honey to my ears.
