Abominable Review: Delightful, Stylish and among Dreamworks’ Best!

Dreamworks have made quite a name for themselves over the years. The animation studio has found an array of success with films such as Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon. However along with its hits the studio has had its share of misses as well; whether it was trying to start a new franchise or simply doing something different. Needless to say, it seems that Dreamworks is taking another chance with their newest film hitting theaters: Abominable. Directed by Jill Culton Abominable is a joint production by Dreamworks and Chinese studio Pearl (who have collaborated before with Kung Fu Panda 3) and centers on a Yeti in China. I would be lying if I said I was looking forward to this animated feature. Seeing the previews for the movie did not do much for my enthusiasm as it looked like a typical animated adventure with standard characters and decent animation. Regardless, I went to see the film and after going on this journey I find myself surprised as, when it pertains to standalone movies, Abominable is among Dreamwork’s best.
