A fun movie, more enjoyable than it has any right to be .

My daughter absolutely loved Dora as a kid, she's 15 now and we enjoyed it.

Really Enjoyed it!.

Dora is exceptional in that it almost entirely avoids all those tired formulaic approaches, replacing them instead with a very fun, upbeat, and engaging story that doesn't try to be anything more than that.

So movies that come out to potentially extend a hand back into the past and relive those moments are very intriguing and we may just find ourselves flocking to the movies to figure out what they writers could have in store for our heroes.

The film occasionally makes you cringe, with some dreadfully (and deliberately) naff songs, but I enjoyed it and for the right audience (kids 8 to 12) I think they'll have a blast.

This balancing act doesn't always work, but when it does, it makes for an enjoyable watch.

These characters were SO great and their acting was very enjoyable.

The film is more fun for children, because the story can come across as somewhat predictable or obvious thanks to the simple elaboration for adult viewers.

It was cheesy and entertaining.

' It was entertaining and fun, and my kids came out singing and dancing.

Nice & Entertaining Movie !.

It's a joke that really dragged for me.

Terrible acting but entertaining for us kids at heart.

This live action adaptation of Dora was alright and it was predictable.

I had my doubts at first, but after watching the film I was surprised to find it a relatively entertaining film.

This is an entertaining film for children who are familiar with the animation version of Dora the Explorer and for parents who have seen this animation together with their children.

A great message for kids with charm, humour and a surprisingly enjoyable adventure for all.

normally when we leave my kids ask for the dvd if they have enjoyed it ..this time it was straight to ...

On the one hand, it's an energetic and enjoyable adventure movie throughout, and is the explorer movie that Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull never was.

I found it entertaining and funny.

The movie does take a while to get going (it's surprisingly long at about an hour and 40 minutes), but once it does, it's entertaining until the end.

i enjoyed it.

Although there are a few cringe worthy scenes that only little kids would enjoy, we both thought the movie was quite funny & overall entertaining.

The movie was extremely boring and mostly cringey.

Dora's coming of age .

The live-action Dora film is entertaining for young viewers who know the character.

Everything we love from the show is in this movie while still Making it enjoyable for all ages.

I wasn't a Dora fan, but I think if you're looking for a safe, enjoyable friendly film to take your kids to this weekend go ahead and pick Dora and the Lost City of Gold.

And I liked how in the story it gave us a funny and entertaining look at what Dora's life would be like if she were a real person both as a child and as a teenager.

It was actually so entertaining, great for kids and the grandpa sitting in the same row as me in the theater clearly loved it (he laughed so much!

Left the cinema both feeling treated; made for an enjoyable fun memory to share and discuss afterwards.

With that said, the period where the story sags is bookended by an electrifyingly funny opening act, as well as an adorable and genuinely entertaining finale (not to mention a great musical number in the closing credits).

It'll do its job in entertaining the younger audience and isn't too much of a chore to watch.

Film was entertaining and funny, even though the entire third act has been lifted from Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade.

Really Enjoyable!!.

Overall an entertaining movie for Family.

It was boring .

They all totally loved it and I enjoyed it way more than I expected to.

Disney used to do this sort of live-action family film thing so well in the 70's and 80's, before they got obsessed with pointless recreations of their cartoon classics.

And throughout, while it may be difficult to get your head round such a strangely anarchic Dora The Explorer movie, the film's energy and audacity in trying something different is hugely rewarding, proving an immensely entertaining and genuinely likable watch throughout.

I'm 23 and took my college friends to see it and we all enjoyed it!!!

And after a while they start to feel the same, tired jokes, intentional and contrived "over their heads" references that parents are supposed to really appreciate, and all too often some sort of ham-handed and out of place modern morality message that invariably falls flat and comes across as entirely gratuitous and painfully forced.

Rating 9.1/10 Surprisingly entertaining.

Uneven but Entertaining .

Surprisingly enjoyable .

A fun entertaining movie .

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is an entertaining movie.

My 9 year old daughter rekey enjoyed it .

I highly recommend it.

Elsewhere, a "Pointless" answer from the cast is Benicio del Toro as the voice of "Swiper", a bizarrely talking and poorly-disguised fox!

The plot is bare minimum boring.

What does hurt it is while it tries to evolve Dora and her adventure, it still succumbs to cliché family movie parts like the annoying geek character and bathroom jokes.

It was better than i expected it to me with decent casting but the cgi was low budget and overall poor but an enjoyable movie for kids.

Next i thought some parts of the plot was very clever and intriguing.

Dora never takes itself too serious, and it's extremely enjoyable to watch.

There were some cringy part only younger kids would find funny but overall if was super funny and enjoyable!

Yes, I review:Movie:Dora the Explorer And The Lost City Of Gold (2019)Director: James Bobin Writers: Chris Gifford (based on the series created by), Matthew Robinson (screenplay by)Stars: Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael PeñaLIKES:Short Fast Paced Good for Kids Funny Feels Like A Dora Episode Nostalgic BootsDISLIKES:Predictable Simplistic Lackluster Ending Under Utilized Cast Still Too Kiddy PreachySummary:For a movie that is based on a kid's program, the Nickelodeon studies managed to keep the kid-friendly atmosphere alive and appropriate for the younger audience members.

While consistently enjoyable, this film cannot seem to decide what it is.

Dumb And Predictable .

Entertaining .

But unlike Blues Clues that had very mundane and general mysteries, Dora the Explorer at least tried to add a little more education with zoology and a main character that was Latina.

This is the worst movie I've seen.

The movie shows a lot of life lessons under the coming of age story.

I cant believe I saw this and enjoyed it .

On the other, though, it is unavoidably simplistic and generic, and when the comedy isn't working at full capacity (particularly in the second act), the film can feel a little on the dull side for viewers over the age of 5.

With so many violent and intense movies these days, this proved a refreshing change.

4-5 year old bored, 10-13 enjoyed it .

, this plot and writing still has flaws, while it is funny, it does mostly rely on toilet humour, which can get a little chuckle but it's pretty standard sort of humour, the film is also pretty predicable, confusing, odd and feels exactly like a Nickelodeon TV movie, but that's kind of the point, it's not trying to be a Pixar or a Disney, it just wants to be a fun, entertaining, safe and funny film, normally I would bash a film for being all of that since it can get frustrating, here it's kind of a breath of fresh air to see a film embrace it's flaws and just goes for it, it may not be anything special, it has humour that is what you expect in a kids film, just filler and not at all funny, along with a plot that we have seen so many times, being quite predicable too, however it's not trying to be a masterpiece, it's just trying to be a fun kids film, with a good moral, clever and funny humour, heart, engaging action sequences and fun puzzle solving, in other words, this is what the series should of been.

The adventure is predictable with lots of obvious foreshadowing laid out in the first third of the act.

I was completely wrong and the entire time I wanted to leave and regretted going.

And fortunately, she does before the joke becomes tiresome!
