Movie review: Hotel Transylvania (2012)


‘Hotel Transylvania’ would be a nice animated film for kids to watch in conjunction with this upcoming Halloween. Even adults would find this movie a pleasant surprise for them (you would know why once you continue reading). I had watched the film just now, and I’m definitely entertained by it. It is by far one of the best animated films this year from my point of view. The story sets on a dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, and goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count’s teen-aged daughter.

I first get to know roughly how the story goes after watching its trailer few months ago, and that puts me into the list of movies I’m not going to miss this year. The flow of the story just went very well and interesting all the way from the beginning till the end. It’s fast-paced, with not a single scenes from this film intending to get the audiences bored. The main characters (the dracula father and daughter with the human boy) are such lovely characters that will get you attached and keen to know how their story progresses alongside with the other monster characters introduced like the mummy, bigfoot, frankenstein, werewolf, witch, etc. The story is delivered well within that one and a half hour duration of the film which is just right.

What’s making this film stands out is that the movie is really funny to watch. I do laughed at several moments eventhough I am in a very tiring situation while watching it. And what’s more to it is that those hilarious scenes aren’t lame, and some were treated as hidden humors which only adults will realize it (especially the part in plane when a supposingly Twilight film is shown and the dracula responded by saying ‘unbelievable’ on how vampires are portrayed nowadays). I couldn’t hold my laughter at that particular scene. It’s such a brilliant humor. And Adam Sandler’s voice just made the main character (dracula) the most compelling and hilarious one.

Most of the story deals with how the dracula started dealing with the boy once he entered his hotel only for monsters (human never know the existence of such thing), from rejecting him to finally accepting him and allowing the boy to get together with his daughter that felt in love with him. And then, there isn’t much love or excessive romance thingy going around dragging the appealing story which is very good and much preferable from my point of view. In conclusion, the story is great for both kids and adults, and generally the movie is very entertaining and one of the funniest animated films I have ever seen. A good one, and I will rate ‘Hotel Transylvania’ a total of 7.7. (I find it hard to spell the word ‘Transylvania’ correctly…haha) If you haven’t check this movie, you should give it a go!
