The Lorax

A film by Chris Renaud

Movie review

The Lorax

is perhaps the most blatantly obvious attempt to speak down to people about the perils of industrialization on the environment since An Inconvenient Truth. Yes, I understand this is a children’s film, but Dr. Seuss’ original work from 1971 was a brave warning of trouble to come, while director Chris Renaud’s follow-up to Despicable Me is just a complete farce, unlikely to inspire any young people to care about the planet. Sadly, I don’t see it encouraging a lot of laughter and enjoyment in kids either. As is unfortunately too often the case, this is another Seuss adaptation that gets the imagination in the imagery but doesn’t understand the roots of the story.
