Initial reviews for the live-action Tom & Jerry film are out and it looks like the animated film featuring the iconic cat and mouse has failed to impress critics.
Many of the critics were critical of the poor script and the standard performances of the actors. However, this film is a special attraction for young audiences and older audiences to just reminisce.
About Tom & Jerry Movie
Tom and Jerry is a live-action hybrid film based on the popular 1940s animation. This cartoon series focuses on the witty rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse.
The original animation managed to entertain the entire audience and this time Warner Bros. tried to reboot it into a live-action film. Tom and Jerry stars Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role as an unemployed New Yorker looking for work in a luxury hotel.
Incidentally at the Hotel where he recently worked will soon be held “the biggest wedding of this century”. Meanwhile Tom and Jerry also happened to be at the hotel looking for a new place after they were both kicked out of the house that was the setting in every animated series we’ve seen.
