Monster wrestling

I don't really know what to say about this Paramount animated movie, other than saying the trailers didn't give me any hopes for it being good.

After watching I found it at least a bit better then what I thought it was going to be. It had pretty good animation, the voice acting was good, and it can be funny at times.

I did like Will Arnett as the main monster and found him funny when given funny lines to say, there were funny scenes and I did lightly laugh at them even if some of the jokes were bad.

The monster fighting was cool seeing and how the monster fights effect the people of the town. But even the entertaining parts don't save the whole movie.

The jokes and scenes are hit and miss and I couldn't see myself liking some characters when they are shown. But That's just what I think

I'm not going to say see it immediately, but I am going to say check it out when you have the free time.

not much new ...

To learn for a wrestling fan, all the tricks has been done before( i guess ), and i do have a struggle getting familiar with the main caracters, so a really generic classic animation shower for all of you who like monsters and fake resling.

The caracter animation doesnt stand out more than usual, its colourfilled and dandy in a colour blinds eyes, what i do admire and want to highlight to all of you is the extraordinary background animation and the magic glow theyve managed to pinpoint right in the center of the bulls eye, its static and boring you might say, but go ahead and drown yourself in the depth of the abyssmal fairytale land. I just love it.

Voiceover are pretty dandy and timed very well, the score though doesnt stand out much, i do miss a signature song from this movie. But for the grumpy old monsterman its allright, i give 6 sturdy stars outta 10 with a ''should see''- recommend.

A by the numbers sports story with good animation, but little character resonance or substance.

Set in a world where mankind and giant monsters live peacefully side by side, the entire world follows the competitive sport of Monster Wrestling wherein a town's monster alongside a human coach engage in matches with monsters from other towns. The town of Stoker-on-Avon was once home to the greatest monster and coach team of Rayburn and Jimbo Coyle before they were tragically lost at sea and presumed dead. Sometime later Avon's new monster, Tentacular (Terry Crews), becomes the world champion only to announce immediately afterwards he's abandoning Avon for a lucrative deal with the town of Slitherpoole. With no monster to justify the upkeep and maintenance of the Jimbo Coyle Stadium the town reluctantly decides to sell the stadium to be demolished for a parking lot which doesn't sit well with monster wrestling fan and Jimbo Coyle's daughter, Winnie (Geraldine Viswanathan), who sets out to find an unknown she can coach in the hopes of saving her father's stadium. Following many rejections, Winnie eventually stumbles across childhood friend and Rayburn's son Rayburn Jr.(Will Arnett) who is now taking dives for low rent matches under the name Steve the Stupendous. With Rayburn Jr./Steve now in debt for a large sum of money for winning a fight he was supposed to lose, he reluctantly goes to Avon with Winnie to train as a serious monster wrestler with a massive uphill journey for the both of them.

Loosely based on the graphic novel Monster on the Hill by Rob Harrell, Rumble comes from Paramount Animation, Reel FX Animation, and WWE Entertainment who've for the past 10 years have tried to branch out to younger skewing audiences with endeavors like the short lived TV show Saturday Morning Slam, and several animated direct-to-video productions usually involving Hanna-Barbera characters like The Flintstones, Jetsons, or Scooby-Doo. Originally intended as a major film for the 2020 Summer movie season, Rumble like many other films found itself pushed around the release calendar until much like Paramount actioneer Infinite, the film's theatrical release was cancelled and instead the film was repositioned as an exclusive for Paramount+. The end result is certainly a colorful and energetic animated film and is probably Reel FX's best looking feature to date, but it also has a very banal by the numbers story and doesn't have the charm, humor, or creativity necessary to overcome its familiarity.

The movie's worldbuilding is virtually non-existent with an ESPN style info dump opening that sets up monsters appeared and then they started wrestling for sport. That's basically all the info we get in regards to this world and aside from the wrestlers being monsters, they pretty much behave and are treated like everyday people except bigger. The world more or less looks and feels like our world but there's no effort giving as to how this society of humans and monsters operates with us never seeing where the monsters live when they're outside of the ring, if the monsters are involved in activities outside of monster wrestling, or even what and how they eat. When you compare this movie to something like How to Train Your Dragon or Zootopia, the amount of thought and creativity that goes into making those worlds feel like tangible living places really puts Rumble to even greater shame because the movie doesn't have even a tenth the creativity you saw in those films. Some of the monster designs do occasionally look a little interesting, but they also often feel like leftover assets from How to Train Your Dragon or Monsters vs. Aliens not surprising given the director, Hamish Grieve here making his feature debut, is primarily known as an animator on several Dreamworks films.

The story is pretty much your standard underdog sports story, down to the fact the characters of Winnie and Steve will often call attention to tropes of the genre often providing commentary on montage workout songs or "rousing coach speeches" in what basically amounts to "this is cliché, but we're winking while doing the cliches which excuses them". As Rocky and Bullwinkle the movie proved, just because you acknowledge something is awkward or corny doesn't make it funny in the movie. Geraldine Viswanathan as Winnie is your typical "high energy, big heart" protagonist who's basically just there to serve as an audience proxy through which the audience can project themselves, and Will Arnett as Steve feels like he's trying to resonate with Steve's core of "not living up to his father's image", but the fact Steve loved his father and looked like he had a fairly happy childhood doesn't really make us understand how he got to the point where he's now a cynical lay about who's now content to lose for a living, and it feels like there's a missing transition from how Steve got from Point A to Point B.

The movie is well animated I supposed. It's a bright colorful film with smoothly rendered movement and character models and there are a few visual references and easter eggs to wrestlers like Hulk Hogan and Jerry Lawler, and I'm sure there are probably others but as I'm not as entrenched in the wrestling world as others it's highly likely I missed them.

Rumble has a nugget of a good idea being a mixture of professional wrestling and giant monsters, but a lack of creativity or interesting characters coupled with a clichéd story that is self-aware of its own cliches and uses them anyway just left me feeling like the film was rather cynical. It is well made and if you have young children who love wrestling and/or monsters they'll probably be reasonably entertained by the film, but by that measure there's really not much here that elevates the film above one of WWE's direct-to-video Hanna-Barbera crossovers aside from a bigger animation budget.

It's fine..... at best.

I'll be honest here. I was slightly hyped up when i heard of Rumble in 2020. It felt like great concept. Obviously I didn't know anything about the plot, beyond it being your basic "zero to hero" stuff.

Well, the story of Rumble is... Not what i expected. I mean it still follows the formula of loser turning into champion, but.. Eh.

About animation: You can clearly see a great divide of "proper animation" made on main characters and their closest environment. Everything else feels REALLY cheap, on a thin budget. And that wouldn't be a bad thing, if movie wasn't zooming in on bad stuff as often as it did. For example big monsters you get to see. 2 of them are obvious copy-paste to save money. I mean.. Come on..Characters are bland and average, but that's fine.

Comedic part, the jokes.. Are average and sparse at best. And that's fine.

What kind of annoyed me in the show was how movie suddenly lost its "realism" at certain point. Well "realism" is a big word here, but what i'm trying to say is that one moment you watch giant monsters beating each other, while in next a slapstick comedy of no consequence funny faces, silly grunts and poses... Just a farse. I mean kids would like it, but it was just lame to watch for me.

A 6/10 score sounds about right, maybe event tad too high. I hope Paramount will do 2 things in their future upcoming animated projects: Invest in MUCH better story/plot ans Invest in MUCH better animation.

You know the drill..

Its an underdog story about a monster whose father was greatest wrestler of all time and a coach whose father handled the greatest monster.. So, two underdogs pair up together and you know what happens next..

Shades of "Real Steel" and many other wrestling movies.. My 7 years old enjoyed the movie while I could predict what's going to happen next at least 15 mins in advance..

Watch it when you are bored..
