Review: The Brown family befriends a talking bear from Peru who has traveled to London.
Director: Paul King
Actors: Hugh Bonneville, Ben Whishaw, Sally Hawkins, Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters
Year: 2014
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama and Family
Conclusion: 4/5
A film that will make you laugh and cry. The cast were fantastic but the only one I felt that didn’t feel right for the casting was Julie Walters. The script was well written. I liked Ben Whishaw’s voice and thought it suited Paddington very well. The C.G.I. of the bear is fantastic. Very faithful to the Paddington Bear books by Michael Bond. As soon as the film started you instantly knew that it was going to be a good film. It was lovely to see all the different parts of London which is so rare in a film. Colin Firth was originally cast to do the voice of Paddington. Michael Bond’s daughter Karen Jankel watched this film and after the first screening stated “For me, it was bringing to life the bear that was so real to me. And they got it absolutely right”. I have never had a marmalade sandwich but I now feel like I should have one!
