yuk. overly saccharine and sugary icky to the extreme. normally i loveDisney movies (mostly old school Disney), and i love the work of SirJames M. Barrie, but not enough to want to torture myself with trite,flavorless, brain rot like this.
i don't even know why i started watching this stupid series of fairymovies in the first place. i remember being somewhat suspicious ofthese movies when the series first started. but being a fan of bothBarrie and Disney, and encouraged by the mostly favorable reviews, idecided to take a chance, even though i knew it would be for babies. iwan't that impressed. i thought they pretty much sugar coated andpasteurized the character beyond recognition, but i figured theanimation was good and it was adequately diverting. i was high. by thethird installment in this series i was ready to start screaming. andthe really disturbing part was that i checked the TV listings, and thiswas the best thing to watch that morning. you know what they say, allthose channels and....
there is no real understanding of the character in these films.Tinkerbell has always been a amusingly spiteful and prankish characterlaced with a certain amount of malice. she pulls Wendy's hair, callsPeter an "ass", and at one point even tries to get the Lost Boys toambush Wendy and try to kill her. most of that was even depicted in theoriginal Disney cartoon from the 1950's. turning Tink into a goody twoshoes who wants to help everybody and make everything right is sosickening and such a brainless white washing of the character it makesyou want to hurl. as a matter of fact i did. i couldn't make it to thetoilet, so i had to thrust open the front door of my apartment andbegin vomiting buckets on the front lawn. the neighbors insisted i hadbeen drinking again, but i told them i was attending AA meetings andhad'nt had a drink in weeks. the 'Tinkerbel Fairy Rescue' was just thatnauseating.
all those overused (but in this case effective) movie review clich?scome to mind when wanting to discuss this. you know, the stuff we'veheard a million times like, "so saccharine it would give a diabeticinsulin shock" or "crass, overworked commercialism". those sayings areso overused, but when it comes to icky sugar like this, those sayingscouldn't be more true. so true the sayings almost haunt you while youwatch this.
all this really isn't fair. mainly because i'm a 49 yr old male. thebest person to ask about whether this is any good is the targetaudience. six year old girls. i'm not sure this will stimulate anybrain cells, but they might find it entertaining.
anyone over the age of six, and i don't care if you're a parent withkids either, anyone over six years old who actually LIKES this sugarpoo, should seek therapy. or at least see a doctor about a serious caseof germy cooties.
i won't be there for the 'Fairy Winter Woods Adventure'. sounds likepure sugar goo torture. i need to rescue my manhood from this whole'fairy' adventure and stop subjecting my sanity to this muck. thesemovies could even turn a six year old girl into a gay metro-sexual.yeeeeech!
I love the Tinker Bell series of movies! This is just another great TBfilm. The story is great and the visuals are beautiful. I think thismovie can be enjoyable to kids of all ages who may want to watch thisbecause i'm 14 and i love it. It has a lot of things that kids andparents alike might enjoy such as it being not as edgy as some of theCGI films by Pixar and DreamWorks and others. Parents may also enjoythe message to believe. There isn't a lot of comedy or it isn't sofunny that you'd be rolling on the floor laughing. But, it has somehumor that most people might giggle at. The characters are charming,especially the title character herself: Tinker Bell. If you enjoy afeel-good fairy-tale adventure than this film is for you!User: judecas
The third TB is like the first two - funny, clever, cute, visuallystunning. My little one (4) absolutely loved it, so did I. It kept herattention from beginning till the end, what I don't see every day. It'suseless to speak about visuals - the colors are wonderful, as we areused to, the objects are elastic and "real" in the way an animatedfairy tale can be. The story is also nice. This time there's much morespace for Vidia, which tries to show her better side. Tinker Bell'sfriends known from the first two movies are also present, we aremissing the "management" and the background crew, so the storyline ismuch more intimate. The coping-stone of the action is a little over thetop (=7/10), but what the hell, it's a fairytale...User: gaspyy
I'm not sure what makes Tinker Bell so irresistible to small children,but Disney managed to expand upon the Peter Pan mythos and flesh outTink as an independent, curious, kind yet temperamental fairy.
This is Tink's third adventure, after Tinker Bell (2008) and TinkerBell and The Lost Treasure (2009). This time, her native curiosity inhow things work and her fascination with humans gets her in trouble andher friends must organize a rescue party, also a good opportunity forVidia, the antagonist, to show her better side.
The production values are good but not incredible compared to Pixarmovies or even to Disney's own Bolt; still, I doubt that any child willnotice that Cheese's fur doesn't sway for example.
About the only thing that disappoints me is that the whole DisneyFairies franchise is more aimed at girls rather than boys, which isquite a shame, given Tink's personality.
Overall, it's a nice family movie. My 6 years old son loved it andthat's all it matters.
This British Disney Toon studios production is true pixie-dust for thehopeful family viewer. Astonishing 3D-like 2D imagery (why can't allfilms look this amazing?) is completely captivating and as an adult Ifelt myself being whisked into the genuine Disney magic of 60s filmslike MARY POPPINS and POLLYANNA......
TINKERBELL FAIRY RESCUE has the absolutely most breathtaking visuals,computer driven but timeless and earthy in beauty and fantasy. This isa simple but clever and funny animated feature. And for little girlsand their 56 year old daddies, there is a few tears and a lot ofexcitement to be shared. I really applaud the tone story and sheergorgeousness of this utterly enchanting family film. TINKERBELL herselfreminded me of 50s MGM Musical star and singing sensation Jane Powellat her most beautiful. What a success TINKERBELL FAIRY RESCUE is. Ifyou were also gob-smacked at ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES' imagery thatlooked 3D but was actually 2D, then this too is for you and yourfamily.
Out of the hundreds of films and shows my four year old daughter hasseen there are very few that I would confidently recommend as perfectfor a little girl. "Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue" is one ofthese. Totally inoffensive and absolutely stunning production qualitiesmake this on of the most pleasant films I have seen for children formany, many years. I am totally lost why this little visual masterpiecehas had such little promotion. I recently saw a mother take a group oflittle girls to see Tim Burton's Alice in Wonder land and it wasdisturbing to see so many of them upset by the film. How was the motherto know that this PG rated version of a traditional children's storywas going to be that wrong on that many levels. Maybe the title "TinkerBell and the Great Fairy Rescue" makes it sound a little trite and lamebut the actual film is totally beguiling and charming.
