Description: In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's (Matthew McConaighey) attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same.
Review: A pig in a leotard singing a Lady Gaga song, twerking bunnies, a crooning snail, a rapping crocodile, an opera singing camel. Like many talent shows we have these days, the auditions are most often the best part of them. In “Sing” it’s animals auditioning for a new singing competition. And like many of us, they all have dreams of becoming stars.
Koala Buster Moon is the owner of a theater, that hasn’t been doing well lately. His last hope is a singing competition, but due to a mistake of his chaotic assistant (who is hilarious) the prize money is a lot higher then he wanted it to be. Lots of animals show up for the auditions.
“Sing” is filled with modern hits, but also some classics. This makes the film really easy to watch, because it somehow becomes a sing-a-long film. There are many characters in this and some of them are really funny. Kids will eat this up! The voice cast is really good and all the main characters have a purpose. But the competition element in the film was not as exciting. The story never goes out of the lines, it’s all pretty standard and solid.
“Sing” is a fun animated musical film, great for the entire family.
Rating: 3,5/ 5
