I grew up on cartoons "Pixar",and love them very much, but in particular, both part of the "toy Story" and"monsters, Inc". For cartoons "Pixar" characteristic of a humane and rich in humor stories, with the socio-philosophical overtones. On I saw "Ratatouille" at the Russia great Russian dubbing. And felt a strong disappointment.
I'm not going to retell the story, it so is known to all. So I stop the reasons that leave a bad impression of the cartoon.
The first reason. Dark base.
The main character — Remy, the rat who dreams of becoming a chef. It idol — the famous chef Auguste Gusteau with its famous motto "anyone can Cook". In the first minutes of the cartoon we know Gusteau died, and because of the reviews is a criticism of the Ego. In the future, the human will communicate with the Ghost of Gusteau. Not very fun topic is for the whole plot of the cartoon and it causes negative emotions. And further — the theme of people who kill rats. Father Remy leads his see the window where exhibited in a series of several dozens of rat corpses. The scene on my opinion is terrible, especially for children.
The second reason. The characters are overplayed.
If the term "replay" is valid for animated characters, then here he is the most appropriate. Alfredo Linguini — a young boy, after his mother's death(second death for the cartoon), and the illegitimate son of Auguste Gusteau, too naive, stupid, and clumsy. Too obviously it admired the cook Colette in first for a moment his appearance in the restaurant. Replays and the way Colette — too aggressive and immediately sentimental at once. The image of a professional — chef Iwadare, made harmful dwarf with harmful, sometimes a dangerous character. Image Ego was good. But it was funny to see how after the critic ate the Ratatouille, he changed its austere style was changed to amiability and modesty.
Strange detail — all the people in the cartoon why — the slant.
The reason for the third. The senselessness.
Of course, all stories cartoons "Pixar" is fantastic. But if all the previous cartoons can be understood, then this time the plot is just incomprehensible. The rat is preparing — it still can understand. But like a rat can drive a man jerking his hair?
Why the restaurant (even a three star) restaurant cooks are not have a higher education? Instead of professionals in the restaurant are former secret service agent, previously convicted people and several people do not have cooking nothing.
In shock I plunged the scene where a whole pack of rats is not have no knowledge of cooking, suddenly quickly begin to cook on a restaurant. The scene where rats associated sanitary inspector and Iwadare, catching rats for kitchen work is not give in to any logic.
Lame scene where the grim critic Ego began to smile widely when he was fascinated by Ratatouille. Alfredo showed Mr. criticism that for his dinner a rat. Criticism of this fact is not surprised, although any normal person would doubt. And critics just not surprised, but and write a review, though not tell your readers the whole strangeness of the situation. This point is vague and unexplained as many cartoon.
This is the main reason, according to which cartoon I did not like.
Quality image, great Russian dubbing — it is certainly a plus. It should be said that mood me the view was bad, maybe it affected sensations cartoon. In the cartoon there is a lot of interesting points, such as for example, thinking about Remy the ephemeral nature of the world. I also liked the statement of Mr. Ego:
"In many ways, work critic easy. We nothing is not at risk, but put on those who brings your labor and ourselves our court. Crushing distributions are pleasant to write and to read, but we critics should admit in the overall picture of the universe any stuff is probably more important than all of our criticism in its address..." I Think this idea can be attributed to all types of art, and to any review that is written on this site.
Of course I'm very sad for your favorite movie moments, and the plot of the cartoon to still I digest very painful, but in General I respect the attempt of the filmmakers to create a humane and a good movie.
