Movie Info

When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him "Everest" and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.

Yet the Miyazaki-style magic and gentle subversion of Jill Culton's film stops it from feeling like an extended tourist promo. The 12ft dandelions are a delight.

The central relationship here is not dissimilar to the one in How to Train Your Dragon, (also produced by DreamWorks Animation) but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

A blandly-charming, occasionally-thrilling animation...but I wanted a little bit more. Perfectly fine...

Here's a defanged, declawed yeti in an animation whose every beat, character and narrative component feels as if it has been algorithmically tested for commercial safety by a computer programme.

Where Abominable may fall down is in the nuts and bolts of charming your little ones. The dialogue is flat, the slapstick flabby.

Abominable strives for originality and, often, achieves it. But it's also never quite daring enough to veer off the beaten path.
