ODEON says...
Find out why naughty is nice this Christmas!

‘The Grinch’ lives alone in a cave, and he likes peace and quiet. When his neighbours’ Christmas celebrations threaten to disrupt his tranquillity, there’s only one option: to steal Christmas. 

They’re going to make this Christmas three times bigger than usual, so the Grinch’s only choice is to be even more mean to teach them a lesson. And so he disguises himself as Father Christmas to carry out his scheme… 

Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice of ‘The Grinch’ in this retelling of the classic story from the creators of ‘Despicable Me’ and ‘Sing’.

It’s good for children under the age of 8, however, it doesn’t compare to the original.

Bland and empty

Reviewer: JHBDate: 2018-11-22

As always illumination produces a decent looking film, but other than that there is nothing of substance for your kids. It’s another soulless cash-grab and your better off showing kids the chuck jones version. If anything, stick with Disney or Pixar

For Kids

Great for the Kids not so much for most fans of the original,

Not for me

Reviewer: Rella xXxDate: 2018-11-16

It was ok. If you've seen the trailer you've seen all the funny bits. No where near as good as Jim Carreys version. Not even close.
