I’m a huge fan of stop-motion animation and of Henry Selick, but this film has been quite disappointing. It is nothing compared to ‘Nightmare bedore Christmas’ and ‘Coraline’.
Animation is great, even though I would have preferred some more “old style” techniques, such as less green screens and computer effects, but it was very good overall.
The big problem is the plot, there’s too much in it. And you can’t get what this film is for, children or adults?
About the characters, they’re not enough developed. You can’t sympathize with anyone.
You should watch it if you like stop-motion, but don’t expect anything exceptional.

“Wendell & Wild tells a simple yet beautiful story about the grieving process and how people who have gone through it have as much or more potential to change the future.
It doesn’t reinvent the narrative wheel, being a screenplay close to the usual formulas, but as a stop-motion animation fanatic, the impressive visual quality is more than enough to grab this viewer. Despite the central theme and the characters needing to be more detailed, it’s still a viewing that I consider mandatory, especially for families.”
Really a shame…
I love Henry Selick’s work in Stop Motion, Coraline is even one of my all time favorite films, however this new effort has unfortunately left me a little cold.
On the technical side it is certainly something great but the script is really simple with an unbalanced pace.
The ending comes all of a sudden and the viewer is not given time to empathize with what’s going on.
The protagonists are nice even if some have a design that didn’t drive me crazy. However, the film is not a bad film but thinking about past works it does not even reach those levels a bit.
Such a shame as I was very confident for Wendell & Wild.
What was the point?
This should’ve been interesting…but it wasn’t in the slightest. With the celeb names that were thrown into this movie and the quirkiness it promised I had expected much more. I think some of these writers and producers need to be reminded just your name isn’t good enough to captivate viewers when the story isn’t worth spending our time on.
Are we saving a town? Raising the dead? Helping misunderstood youth? Connecting families? This whole movie was too outlandish with too many random stories all crashing into each other creating one confusing and boring movie. If any individual part of it was interesting then I could’ve recommended at least giving it a try but I wasn’t rooting for any one character or any of the random journeys that lacked depth.
