Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Mckenna Grace

Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie begins with a short film – Dora and the Fantastical Creatures – which is thankfully brief at just five minutes in length, before we move on to the main feature, which takes place in Adventure City, as everything does in Paw Patrol land.

There’s a theft of a 10-ton electromagnet crane, which seemingly calls for the effervescent canines’ ship to come along and solve things. Where are the police in this town? It’s such a huge thing, and feels like rather a large waste of resources, just for this. The same is the case for one of the crew flying a plane to scoop up a mass of water from the sea, and randomly dump that on a fire, hoping for the best. Where’s the fire engines? Don’t they have 999 out there?

Apparent criminal mastermind Victoria Vance (Taraji P Henson) causes a meteor to be pulled down to Earth, smashing through Paw Tower… followed by many more. On the plus side, however, it gives them all special powers in the form of a crystal – basically turning them into the X-Men, other than for Liberty. Quite why that is, is never explained.

Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie is basically Skye’s (Mckenna GraceGhostbusters: Afterlife) movie, but at one point, as they’re about to get to work, one of them says a line which seems very out of place, “You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here” – are they big Semisonic fans? (from the song, Closing Time).

There’s an additional side story about how the dogs are supposed to be looking after some smaller creatures called the Junior Patrollers, but don’t trouble yourself worrying about them.

Overall, this was entertaining enough for about 30 minutes, but that was about it. Not one to repeat, but the videogames (linked below) are quite fun.

What wasn’t fun, however, was an annoying family in the row directly behind me. Mum, Dad and two kids, and on my return from the toilet, they appeared, with the Dad encouraging the youngest kid to pipe up every time Chase appeared onscreen… NO!

Luckly, a mum and her daughter, further down the row – and more central to the screen – left to go somewhere to the back, so I took their seats. Good call, since that moronic family were chuntering away as if they were watching it at home. You’re in a cinema! SHUSH!

Also annoyingly, most of the cast seems to be made up with the Kardashians. I do not wish to keep up with them!

Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie is in cinemas from October 13th with some weekend previews beforehand, and isn’t yet available to pre-order on Blu-ray or DVD.
