"Paranorman" Movie Review

"Paranorman" Movie Review

Thanks to Nuffnang and ChurpChurp, I was given the chance to attend the 3D Premiere of “Paranorman”. Here’s the introduction of the movie followed by its review.

Norman is a kid who is able to speak with the dead and also ghosts such as her Grandmother who is supposedly dead. His father does not understand him, his sister dislikes him and he is the victim for the bullies in school because no one believes that he can really speak with the ghosts. Thus, he is being treated like a Freak.

Now, his town is about to face a crisis whereby the undead zombies will rise again due to the curse of the witch.

So, what will Norman do to save his town?

Find out the “AbNorman” story of Paranorman in cinema this Thursday!


“Paranorman” is a a 3D stop-motion animated film produced by Laika, the same creator for “Coraline”. Well, the movie is absolutely good-looking and well-crafted with nice colours. The Stop-motion animation is really quite unique and refreshing.

The whole story starts off at a medium pace with every scenes delivering suitable amount of progression and fun for the story from the introduction till the end. The introduction for this kid, Norman is quite well done. We can actually see and even feel the loneliness that he is going through from the mistreatment by others. However, some might find it boring as there is not much climax in this film.

Throughout the whole film, there is a lot of funny moments and also some black humours. Some human attitude is also depicted in a funny way in this movie. There is also humour in this movie which requires the intelligence of the viewers in order to understand it.

Anyway, though it is a comedy animation, it is actually quite heart-warming and thoughtful. The moral of the story is also mind-stimulating for the kids who might be having some bully issues in their life now. Other than that, the approach of the theme of death in this movie is also quite kid-friendly and also let the audience have a different view towards the dead.

Personally, I think the movie is quite entertaining not just for kids but also for adults who appreciate animation movies! Plus, it is a quite meaningful movie!

What I like about the movie:
  1. Nice storyline with well-balanced pace
  2. Amusing 3D Stop-Motion Features
  3. Suitable amount of humors
  4. Heartwarming and meaningful themes
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Some minor plot-holes
  2. Not much of climax (however, it is compensated with the well-distributed amount of fun for every scenes.)

This movie deserves a 7.5/10.0!

It is a fun, thoughtful and unique film! Highly recommended for couples who like animation movie and also for families with kids!

However, those adults who are too serious and do not like childish scenes may not like it!
