Mini Movie Review: Top Cat The Movie (2011) #badmovies

Top Cat: The Movie

Hanna Barbera -based animated films have been few and far between, as a fan of HB, I so wished I saw more movies based on the Jetsons, Johnny Bravo and even lesser fare such as Dynomutt: Dog Wonder, Hong Kong Phooey and not just Scooby-Doo, although a Jonny Quest film courtesy of Robert Rodriguez is looming, and this is in live-action form. I sort of enjoyed Top Cat the cartoon and whilst it is not my favourite Hanna-Barbera show, it was still good for what it was. The voice acting here isn't bad, but the idea not to base the plot in the alleyway where they live, is a mistake and the script is barren and too dull for words. The decision to opt for 2D animation garners a mixed reception from me: whilst it looks all right design-wise, it would have been better if the characters were given the CGI treatment. If Hanna-Barbera as an animation company still existed to this day, they would have given T.C and his crew a better-animated feature film than the one we got via Mexico. The story was too dull and killed my enthusiasm towards it. This Top Cat was far from top; rather it is too uninspired and lacks any sort of charm and wit that made the original series a winner in fans' eyes. 

Is It Worth Watching?

Not really
