Highly Suspect Reviews: Dumbo

Dumbo Movie Review


Disney has been making mad bank off these live-action-ish remakes of their classic animated properties so here comes the weird mutated baby no one wanted…oh, except for of course Tim Burton. It’s kinda his whole schtick. The tale of the little elephant with giant ears who can fly has been DRASTICALLY changed for this version (before you ask, no crows). Michael Keaton most notably joins the story as, erm, evil Walt Disney? He wants the little elephant for his own and screw everybody else. Other than that you have Colin Farrell looking disarmed as he tries to figure out what he’s supposed to be doing in this film, Eva Green as a trapeze artist who…well, pretty much the same as Farrell, and Danny DeVito as the character who actually seems alive. So yeah, not big fans. But listen to Chris, Alan, and Frank on the review to see how it all played out.
