Review

Our Score
All the best family movies can be unpeeled, layer after onion layer, stripping off the mass entertainment to reveal complex and sophisticated ideas within. And Zootropolis, the latest film in a run of unusually high quality from Disney Animation, is no exception. Ostensibly a comedy set in a world of talking animals that have risen above their base instincts to coexist in harmony, this perceptive and elegantly structured film is also a commentary on cultural sensitivity and political correctness. Heavy subjects are handled with the lightest of touches, but the jokes can occasionally touch a nerve, "You can't just touch a sheep's wool!" says Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin), the city's first bunny police officer, and the film's endearing central character. Dismissed as a piece of box-ticking by the Mayor's animal inclusion program, Judy finds herself relegated to traffic patrol. But with a spate of missing animal cases, Judy is forced to team up with her natural enemy, a wily fox called Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). The animation is packed with deft sight gags; the play of light on fur is rendered in a way that brings these creatures to life. But the real vitality is in the smart and funny writing.

Summary

In a city populated by animals, a rabbit achieves her dream of becoming the first bunny to become a police officer - but faces prejudice at every turn. When the disappearance of an otter hints at a terrible conspiracy in the city, she enlists the aid of a con-artist fox in solving the mystery. Disney animated comedy, with the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman and Idris Elba.
