April 12, 2019
You and your children will have sat through many worse films that took far easier routes to the screen - which is not to say that Wonder Park is not immediately forgettable.

It's hard to dismiss Wonder Park out of hand. It's a film for tots that's asking genuinely huge questions, mostly about the nature of play as an act of denial...And for that alone it's worthy of attention and respect.

Wonder Park feels like a tribute act from every angle, but there are worse things children's films can do than openly mimic the greats.

A few hectic chase scenes aside, children will likely find the film both boring and upsetting, a deadly combination.

To put it simply, "Wonder Park" can't keep the wonder and the park on the same page.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 15, 2019
Melancholy in all the wrong ways, this is a mostly forgettable movie that only makes a strong impression when it's disturbing or saddening in a manner the film itself seem only dimly aware of.

The wonders of Wonder Park are dampened by the pall of grief that the protagonist is experiencing, while the wacky amusement park antics prevent the story from going especially deep.

If "Wonder Park" were a carnival attraction, it would be the merry-go-round. The animated movie has animals, relentless positivity and the most predictable journey ever.

March 14, 2019
A clumsy but amiable kids movie with a streak of sincerity that stretches further than the Wonder Park itself.
March 14, 2019
But even before it gets to its conspicuously director-less end credits, Wonder Park has the unmistakable air of a promising movie no one has taken full responsibility for polishing into a good one.

Wonder Park feels like the kind of mild attraction that younger kids might enjoy when it hits secondary platforms. It's just not an adventure that's worth the price of a ticket or standing in line to see.

Wonder Park brings a welcomed depth to its base plot of a girl creating roller coasters. While the premise that reads like a generic fantasy-adventure-comedy for kids, the film manages to intelligently traverse a wide range of emotions.

Wonder Park has a great premise about a spunky kid engineer and a world she constructs taking flight, but takes a few too many dark loop-de-loops and crashes hard. If you pass this amusement park, skip it.

The problem could be that "Wonder Park," like so many of the less refined 3D animated films that Hollywood churns out, is just upsetting to look at for more than a few seconds at a time.

"Wonder Park," frankly, isn't very much fun. It becomes so enslaved with its nonsensical plot that it forgets this is supposed to be about coming to terms with the possible loss of a loved one.

It's colorful. It's predictable. And also quickly forgettable. Genuine wonderment is in short supply in "Wonder Park."

March 14, 2019
Like so many animated movies these days, it buries its ideas in a visual and aural cacophony of frenzied action sequences designed to engage the shortest of attention spans.
March 14, 2019
In the amiable animated feature "Wonder Park," a child's imagination can power an amusement park. Unfortunately, the movie falls shy of providing the same sensory thrill ride.
March 14, 2019
Colorful, but structurally unsound. Not worth the visit.

March 14, 2019
Little kids will like "Wonder Park" just fine. But there's a difference between a great escape and a winsomely crafted pacifier.
March 13, 2019
Sufficiently diverting to engage kids for about 85 minutes, it can function as an appetizer to an upcoming slate of high-profile Disney titles.
