As she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, Marla teams up with some unlikely and heroic new friends - the smooth-talking food truck driver Del (voiced by Jim Gaffigan), the dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (voiced by Daniel Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot, an extravagant fairy-godmother (voiced by Meghan Trainor) and many more.

In all honestly, I was kind of hoping Playmobil: The Movie might have been a decent Animated movie to watch, but sadly it's just a bit of a bore.

My champions are Gaffigan and Daniel Radcliffe whose characters are probably the most engaging of the supporting characters and bringing the dynamic cast to a rather one-note movie.

Our family loved it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mixed thoughts, I found a few scenes funny, and it's got well done animation and live action but it's just a dull rip off of the Lego Movie so nothing original

There is a good feeling to the storyline, and the movie is definitely enjoyable.

", he's super forgettable, Del is a annoying comic relief, he does everything a awful comic relief character do, be funny, try and help, think about other things then be serious for a moment, Emperor Maximus can be a tad bit entertaining, but is overall a annoying villain with motives that make no sense at all, the other characters like Bloodbones (Kenan Thompson), Robotitron (Lino DiSalvo), the Fairy-Godmother and other comedic characters are pretty much useless and have very little screen time, the only character that mildly enjoyable is Rex Dasher, he at least has a personality, good comedic timing, charm and in a way cool!

Why did I even waste my time watching this cash grab of a rip-off?

There are a few musician numbers that are forgettable and awful, except "Give The People What They Want" that was alright, but not enough, Heitor Pereira's score is beautiful and "Run Like the River" by Meghan Trainor is quite good, but it doesn't stand out at all really, just by the numbers, bland and very basic songs.

I asked my daughters 12, 9 and son 5 what they thought after the cinema and they really enjoyed it.

To be fair, there are some genuinely funny moments, and the animation is really well done, but the story is very predictable and the songs are so out of place, you would think they only added them, to sell a soundtrack.

Because of these two factors, alongside the linear telling, just results in a bland adventure that might not be as entertaining to the older crowd, which is a shame given what they can do in these movies.

Waste of time imo .

The film is very formulaic and essentially one big advert for playmobil.

I watched it with my 6 year old Son and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have no idea what the critics were waiting for, but this is a worth watching movie for all the family.

So there is a lot to take in, and I believe that fact alone actually makes this movie well worth watching a second time.

Sadly, the fact that the film struggles to find balance in the presentation to the audience with its predictable, G rate film is going to be the biggest obstacle to see this movie.

I gave it a good rating as my kids enjoyed it and it kept me engaged.

Such as, overuse of the tripping scene, overuse of the opinionated scene, overuse of the singing scene, especially the song introducing "Rex Dasher", super annoying and bored!

At least most of the jokes in 'Playmobil: The Movie' are enough thought through to make this enjoyable for both kids and their parents.

Definitely when it opens in the United States literally save your money.

I hate musicals in movies, they're just a waste of time and unnecessary.

Entertaining movie - don't understand the negative reviews .

They really enjoyed it.

It's plot is thin and very predictable, a linear tale with few bumps or surprises to amazing and wow as the writing continues to favor the younger generations filled with jokes and preachy speeches crammed on in.

This movie was pretty entertaining.

I would say even more entertaining than lego movie 2.

About as bland and boring as getting Playmobil toys when you really wanted Legos.

Sure, the songs don't hold up with Disney songs, but overall the movie was fun, entertaining and very well made.

It's a lot of fun and worth watching with your kids.

I actually found it entertaining.

The Playmobil universe stuff fairs a tiny bit better, but it was still very predictable and basically felt like a very watered down Lego Movie, with almost all of the jokes falling flat.

Adam Lambert is great in it and has an enjoyable song too.

Very enjoyable.

a basic bland looking animated Playmobil film, many towns and areas feel very similar to the LEGO Movie...

A brother and sister get sucked into the world of Playmobil playsets and when little brother gets kidnapped big sis teams up with a food truck dude and super secret spy Rex dasher (who was really entertaining) to save her brother.

All in all I thought this was an enjoyable kids film that well worth a watch.

Sure the humor is cute, but the movie needed better balance for this reviewer and working on making a more exciting tale that utilized the humor and lessons as a supporting role instead of the central pillar.

It's a really good movie and as usual many educate matters you can find at Playmobil, Good animation, happy entertaining, and fun story.

As a parent I have had to endure so many bad childrens movies and I must say this was quite entertaining at times.
