Finally have a chance to watch The Smurfs in the big screen on Saturday afternoon with a friend of mine. For those who thought the Smurfs was anything new, the Smurfs actually was a cartoon series that the people from my generation might have watched it during our schooldays. The cartoon series involved group of blue fictional characters called Smurfs, mostly males and these characters are very short, only three apple high. Almost all characters look essentially alike with blue skin, white trousers with a hole for their short tails, white hat in the style of a Phrygian cap, and sometimes some additional accessory that identifies a personality.
Back to the movie, the Smurfs were enjoying their happy life, as always and are preparing for the Blue Moon festival; and Papa Smurf has a vision that the Smurfs will be captured by the evil wizard named Gargamel and the whole event actually caused by Clumsy Smurf, thus when Clumsy asked Papa permission to pick up some herbs nearby Gargamel's castle, Papa Smurf rejected the idea.
Well, of course Clumsy ignore Papa's advice to stay home, and while picking up these herbs, he stumbled upon Gargamel and chase by him. In his desperation, Clumsy unintentionally revealed the location of the Smurfs' Village.
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into our world. The chase did not stop there, Gargamel follow the Smurfs out to our world and this is where Clumsy accidentally fell into a box which belongs to Patrick Winslow and the other Smurfs have no choice but to follow him to his house in order to rescue Clumsy.
And well, the Smurfs met Patrick and his wife, and his wife loves them and allows these cute blue creatures to stay at their home while they find the way back to their magical world.
Hmm....I guess I'm not going to spoil it for those who has yet to watch The Smurfs, but I reckoned that the movie is best watch in 3D although I just watch it in 2D. The movie is definitely a great one with many funny scenes and enjoyable for one big family to watch.
