SNOWTIME Movie Review


I love watching the new film SNOWTIME. This film is one to watch.  In this film, it is winter break and Luke (voiced by Angela Galuppo) and his friends prepare for an epic snowball fight. They divide themselves into two teams. One team builds an amazing snow fort and the other team wants to win the snowball fight to claim ownership of the fort. Watch these two teams go head to head in this snowball fight to see who gets to win and claim the snow fort. Who will win? Who will lose?

I appreciate this film because I love how it shows a beautiful, snowy village and the kids in this village trying to have fun in the snow.  I also like the fort the kids make in this movie. I love the characters. They are silly, quirky and sometimes bashful.  I also liked their appearance and how they are drawn. The jokes are also funny; this is another great film for kids. I really enjoyed the scenery too.

The moral theme in this film is an important one.  Basically, there are no winners when it comes to war.  The kids end up learning this lesson.  Their friendly snowball fight soon takes an ugly turn which leads to some serious conflicts and a surprise.  I think there are other life lessons in this film but that is the main one that stands out for me.

My favorite character is Nicky (voiced by Liz MacRae). When Nicky shares his ideas with his friends, they underestimate him and knock his ideas down.  I love that he doesn’t allow what they say to discourage him and he continues on his own and accomplishes his idea. I respect his persistence and how he collaborates so well with his friends. I enjoyed how he makes things and they turn out well. I appreciate his imagination. I can relate to him because people sometimes knock down some of my ideas too.   But I continue to go forward with my ideas and prove them wrong.

I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars because the animation is great and it has an important message. I recommend this to kids ages 3 to 18.  I think adults might like this as well. I also recommend this to people who like family, comedy, adventure and action movies. SNOWTIME! is in theaters now!
