Smurfs The Lost Village Movie Review – No Spoilers

Posted on: April 7th, 2017 by



Smurfs The Lost Village was released today. With a rare night of no sports, we wasted no time getting to the theater to see Smurfs The Lost Village. Ordering our tickets on Fandango made it super easy. We arrived moments before the 6:30 pm showing and were able to walk right in to our seats, only stopping once to use the Fandango app to have our Smurf movie tickets scanned.


Before the Smurfs movie, there were about 15 minutes of movie trailers. No worries, they were all family friendly…. but they will certainly make your kids counting the days till summer. There are a lot of family friendly movies coming this summer. We saw trailers for Lego Ninjago, Spiderman Homecoming, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, Despicable 3, My Little Pony, The Nut Job 2, and The Emoji Movie.

Our Smurfs The Lost Village movie review

I don’t want to give too much away about the Smurfs The Lost Village and my boys are sharing their reviews below. I will tell you the Smurfs really is a cute movie for kids. There are of course some battles with Gargamel but nothing is violent or scary. I found the graphics to be really beautiful. As the Smurfs travel through the enchanted forest to arrive at the lost village the scenes are colored vibrantly. We see animated plants and animals; it’s as if the creators went into the imagination of a child and then created those images for the movie.


Moms, you may want to bring your tissues. There are some tender moments. If you’re anything like me, you may find yourself tearing up in the movie.


I appreciated there is no bad or rude humor. We do see how the Smurfs believe they may be limited by their persona or lack there of. Watching how the Smurfs end up defining themselves left an impact on each of my boys. Two of my boys said Smurfette is their new favorite Smurf.


We stayed till all the credits for Smurfs The Lost Village ended. We were waiting to see if any bonus material shows up at the end. What we can tell you is after the movie ends we see Gargamel, Azrael (the cat), Corbelius (the black crow) walking off over a hill and into the credits. Gargamel grumbles for a while about the credits and the music playing. Once he leaves the screen, it’s safe to leave the theater. There are no other special moments. It was then that I pulled my boys aside to document their first thoughts for this Smurfs The Lost Village movie review.

Smurfs The Lost Village movie review from my 12 year old son

My favorite part of the new movie, Smurfs The Lost Village, is when Smurfette, Clumsy, Hefty, and Brainy find the lost tribe of Smurfs. While I can’t give away much, I love this part because after all that work they finally found the village. This shows amazing persistence. I hope you can go see Smurfs The Lost Village, because it is awesome.


Smurfs The Lost Village movie review from my 11 year old son

My favorite part was when Stormy shot down Gargamel’s bird with a fire arrow. It was funny and awesome. The reason for it being funny and awesome is because the villain was shot down to the ground. Stomy shots the bird when she while she was riding the dragonfly, how dangerous. This is why I like this part in the movie.


Smurfs The Lost Village movie review from my 8 year old son

I think Smurfs The Lost Village is awesome. It is a great movie. My favorite part is when Clumsy flies a dragonfly because it is funny. It’s funny because a dragonfly’s baby egg kept coming back to Clumsy’s hands. Gargamel made it look like Clumsy took the egg from the dragonfly. Gargamel was trying to trick the dragonflies into believing Clumsy was a bad guy.
