The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★½

What at first appears like yet another animated family film, is a hilarious and emotional tour de force that explores familial relationships in an age of technology. Each family member (yes, even the dog/pig/bread) have clearly defined personalities and character beats, with the primary story arc centred upon the father/daughter relationship during a ( realistically not far off) technological apocalypse. The Mitchells Vs the machines is an fantastic and easy watch, proving that a typical animated family film about luddite tears, Scene-Kid inspired graphics and killer furbies can be much more than the sum of its parts.
