Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE takes audiences on an epic comedy adventure through a sprawling imaginative universe in the first-ever feature film inspired by the beloved, award-winning PLAYMOBIL® role-play toys. Packed with humour and excitement the film combines endearing and hilarious characters, thrilling adventure and breathtaking scenery in this originally animated heart-warming tale.

When her younger brother Charlie (Gabriel Bateman) unexpectedly disappears into the magical, animated universe of PLAYMOBIL®, unprepared Marla (Anya Taylor-Joy) must go on a quest of a lifetime to bring him home.

As she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, Marla teams up with some unlikely and heroic new friends - the smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Jim Gaffigan), the dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Daniel Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot, an extravagant fairy-godmother (Meghan Trainor) and many more. Through their vibrant adventure, Marla and Charlie realize that no matter how life plays out, you can achieve anything when you believe in yourself!

Featuring the voices of Anya- Taylor Joy, Jim Gaffigan, Gabriel Bateman, Adam Lambert, Kenan Thompson, Meghan Trainor and Daniel Radcliffe.”

…a manic, hit and miss affair… The plot often seems little more an excuse to visit (and heavily promote) as many Playmobil worlds as possible…
Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
…offering up a plethora of settings that help compensate for the lack of good writing…
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
…No child deserves to be subjected to this kind of blaringly witless branding bombardment; as for adults, I felt like I was being beaten around the head with the Argos catalogue. …[1/5]
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph [UK]
…a fake plastic copy… This shameless cash-in sees the German toy brand try and fail to emulate Lego’s big screen success…
Wendy Ide, The Guardian (UK) [1/5]
…hyperactive film never transcends its blatant product-flogging purpose…
Guy Lodge, Variety
…it sure isn’t much fun. …
