If you were looking forward to ‘The Emoji’ movie, you may be in for some disappointment! The movie, directed by Tony Leondis, revolves around the life of 'meh' emoji Gene, in the bustling city of Textopolis. Contrary to the expectation, the science fiction fails to impress the audience in spite of introducing the cartoon ideograms from your smartphone as the central character.
Here’s what the review says about the movie:
The most disturbing part of this toxic film is the way it infects audiences with its ugly cynicism. A viewer leaves The Emoji Movie a colder person, not only angry at the film for being unconscionably bad but resentful of it for making them feel angry.
Despite the talents and charisma of its voice cast, The 'Emoji Movie' fails to deliver on any of its intended messages or themes, with a final act that goes back on everything it had originally been trying to say.
New York Times
This movie’s “believe in yourself” message is borne out, in a perverse way, by the very fact that it even exists. And yet the whole thing remains nakedly idiotic. To add to the pain and despair of the experience, “The Emoji Movie” is preceded by a short, “Puppy,” featuring the characters from the “Hotel Transylvania” animated movies. It is also idiotic.
The bad news is that “The Emoji Movie” really is meh. There have been worse ideas, but in this case, the execution isn’t good enough to bring the notion of an emoji movie to funky, surprising life .
