The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

The Mitchell's Vs The Machines is a LSD trip through social media culture. Sony Animation does it again with exaggerated animation and colorful humor for all ages.

The Mitchell's are a dysfunctional family trapped in a world that only cares about the internet. What really grabs the audience's attention is the detailed animation and earnest storytelling. There are some parts that drag and there's scenes of family betrayal/bonding. But, that's all standard in these family films.

The message about social media addiction is all there and not completely on the nose. It has a great way of using satire with those themes.

This a great debut from Micheal Rianda and I hope he does more animation in the future. Definitely check this out!
