The Emoji Movie

Synopsis: The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). They embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever. [Source: Golden Village]

Not exactly a great movie, I would rate it a normal cartoon just entertaining enough to pass your evening time. The concept of casting emoji as the main character is refreshing but the plot just cant bring the atmosphere to the next level. There isn't much twist and turn in the 90 mins while the movie grind down towards its happy ever after ending. Watch it only if you have no better choice.

Rate: 5/10
