Trolls Band Together: Movie Review

Trolls Band Together Movie Review: Fun for the Kids

Watch the first Trolls right now:

If you enjoyed the previous two "Trolls" films, "Trolls Band Together" is likely to appeal to you as well. Filled with the same vibrant scenes, well-executed song renditions, and visually stunning moments, this installment continues to deliver on the colorful spectacle fans have come to expect. However, if you're seeking more depth beyond these delightful elements, this film may not entirely meet your expectations. At its core, "Trolls Band Together" caters most to the younger audience, with occasional nods to parents through boy band references.

As Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) navigate their newfound romance, Poppy uncovers Branch's secret past — that he was once part of the boyband phenomenon, BroZone, with his four brothers. The group disbanded when Branch was a baby, and he hasn't seen his brothers since. When Branch's brother Floyd is kidnapped by nefarious pop-star villains for his musical talents, Poppy and Branch embark on a harrowing journey to reunite the brothers and rescue Floyd.

For its intended audience, "Trolls Band Together" is an entertaining experience. The adorable trolls and catchy song numbers ensure a captivating watch. There are moments of awesomeness that surprised us, such as the climactic chase scene featuring Velvet and Veneer (played by Amy Schumer and Andrew Rannells), showcasing the film's creative potential in pockets of brilliance. Unfortunately, the narrative emerges as the film's weakest link. Tailored heavily for children, it lacks the balance needed to engage a broader audience. Adults may find themselves rolling their eyes at the predictable and simplistic nature of the story, this is despite the inclusion of boy band references and jokes already. While many family-friendly films successfully cater to both kids and adults, "Trolls Band Together" falls short of creating a universally enjoyable experience.

Rating: 3 reels
