It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home.

Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.Written by
Julie Walters has starred in two films based on famous English children's books. This and Mary Poppins Returns (2018). Ben Whishaw stars with her in both films. In each film, the first scene she shared with Ben Whishaw is one where a room of a multi-storey London Town house gets flooded. See more »

You once, there was once a war in the explorer's country. People in England sent their children by train with labels around their necks, so they could be taken care of by complete strangers in the country side where it was safe. They will not have forgotten how to treat strangers.

Paddington is a good movie with a well developed plot and a great cast. It is a fun,, whimsical film as we see the classic cartoon bear recreated in a live action format to excellent results. The animation of Paddington himself is incredible, somewhat life like, and Ben Whisaw provides an excellent voice over that suits the characters demeanour perfectly.
However, I did find the plot to be far too straight forward, I understand it is a kids movie but there is very little twists and turns that I found it could be a little mundane for its target audience and the parents watching it with them. A very large majority of scenes take place inside the Brown house, which does become somewhat tedious.
I was also disappointed by Nicole Kidman's character Millicent. She could have made a terrific villain, similar to Glenn Close's Cruella De Vil, but there were two major flaws. The first is that she does not have enough screen time to make her character developed enough, and she is also never given a proper reason to want Paddington, which makes her motives unexciting. It was as if she was never meant to be a part of the film, but was thrown in at the last minute to make things more exciting.
It is a bright, colourful, feel good film that kids and kids at heart can enjoy. While it may have its flaws, it's also funny and well animated, I would recommend Paddingtom to anyone looking for a good family film.
