Today we’re talking about the 2022 film Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.
The concept is Roger Rabbit, but the story is a traditional buddy cop reunion. It has a good amount of humour and lots of interesting moments.
Despite being the actors behind the characters, they’re still fairly similar, which is great. The writers even comment on it in one of the last scenes. I appreciated that they didn’t try and give them a dark backstory, but overall they were okay.
The dialogue was clever and aimed at kids, regular people, and animation nerds. There was a great balance of quips and references along with exposition.
Visuals and Music
I am extremely impressed that they managed to make so many animation styles work together without it being jarring. Very well done. Combined with the camera and composition, this movie was pretty impressive.
The music was good and did its job.
The whole family loved it. I found it dragged a little in the middle, but overall it was a lot of fun with lots of laughs.
What the movie lacks in story, it more than makes up in visuals and jokes. This is an homage to the best buddy cop comedies and it does a great job.
Final Score: 4 Stars out of 5
