In a city inhabited by anthropomorphic animals who have abandoned traditional predator/prey roles in favor of civilized coexistence, uptight rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) is forced to work with charismatic fox con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to crack a major case involving the mysterious disappearance of some carnivorous citizens. But when a few of the missing critters reappear, having reverted to pre-enlightenment savagery, it exposes existing anti-carnivore prejudice among the city’s herbivores that threatens to damage the fabric of their diverse metropolis.

ZOOTOPIA (2016) is an animal friendly, adventure, comedy and city-life animation movie. The city of zootopia represents the reality of the modern world. As they say, New York City never sleeps. It can also be the city of dreams. Then, there’s this Judy Hopps (bunny) who dreams of working as a police in Zootopia thinking that her life will be more fabulous than in her town. Would her life be fun in Zootopia?
The animation is fine. It’s from the creators of Frozen and Big Hero 6. The eyes of the animals are bigger. What funny here is the slow motion scene of the sloths. Haha!
Comments and Suggestions:
It’s not that amazing animated film than what I expected it to be. Most likely, it was like a satire of the real human’s society. It represents the real situation of our community today the way I see it. There’s politics, big crime syndicates, simple con artist on street and innocent dreamer who thinks the city is the best place to stay being played by the typical animals who lives in the zoo.
The title ZOOTOPIA comes from two word ZOO + UTOPIA. When you say utopia, it means a perfect place. It looks like NEW YORK city which is the center of commerce and employment. It’s everyone’s dream to work there. That’s what our heroine thinks from the start. Eventually, she will realize that it’s not true.
I like the relationship of Judy and Nick. You’ll never expect a friendship with them because they are total opposites. There’s this earnest bunny and tricky fox who met in the middle of Zootopia. They become a team when Judy needs to solve the mystery and she needs this fox as a witness. She was able to make him obey because she recorded his illegal business statement. They have become partners in crime then. The issue of predators sudden savage acts become the mystery case that needs to be solved in the entire movie. Let’s see who will be the hero in the end. The sloths made me laugh as they move very slowly in any way. It’s like the how government employees move for real. haha!
It feels like there’s something lacking still in this film for it to convince me to re-watch it. Nevertheless, children will definitely enjoy watching it anyway. If you already watched this, you may leave some comments below about your opinion about this film.
