On the weekend, my grandparents took my family and me to the movie, Muppets Most Wanted. We were really looking forward to it because we love the Muppets, and we had enjoyed the 2011 movie called The Muppets. Also, we had watched the trailer for the new movie many times and we thought it looked good. But I thought this movie was terrible and I was disappointed.
The first thing I didn’t like about Muppets Most Wanted is that it wasn’t true to my idea the Muppets. When I think of the Muppets, I think of comedy that’s a little bit ridiculous and slightly bizarre, loveable little characters, storylines where everything goes wrong but in the end everything’s fine. This movie was not like that; it wasn’t very funny to me, even though it was a bit bizarre and ridiculous at times. Also it was too dark for kids; the bad guys were real master criminals, the movie was set in a nasty Siberian prison and there were too many guns and things blowing up.
Another thing I didn’t like about this movie was that it was not believable. For example, I thought that the Muppets took too long to pick up on the fact that Kermit had been replaced by the evil, master-criminal frog, Constantine. The true Muppets would never take that long because they know Kermit so well and Constantine was so different from him.
The last thing I didn’t like about this movie was that the bad guys were too mean and nasty. In other Muppet movies all the bad guys have a change of heart, but in this movie they don’t, and for that matter they don’t change at all. There wasn’t even anything funny about them.
As you can see, I did not like this movie, and I strongly suggest not going.
