  • Summary: I'm not sure what is the message of this movie. I appreciate the cinematic techniques (though I do not get what's all the panning for). Coming of age story that I'm not sure if it's about love or life as a whole. The kid actors are... I cannot even...

A quirky, colorful spark of Anderson's creativity.

  • Excerpt: When I think of Wes Anderson, I think of three things. Quirkiness, Colorfulness and Fascination. In his new tale of young love, Wes Anderson brings possibly his best movie to date. The direction shows us what is really missing in our world today: a true young love, like the one between our central characters Suzie and Sam. One may look at this movie and think: aww, cute. And it is.

  • Summary: two weard kids find eachother, and it seems like they were made for eachother. The movie doesn't ressemble anything thats coming out lately, and it's refreshing to watch something i haven't seen before (reminded me a little of "Flipped", but just a little ;) Loved it!

  • Summary: Rushmore and the Royal Tenenbaums will, thematically, always be Anderson's best work, in my opinion, but I would say that Moonrise Kingdom is probably his third best film. The movie crafts a bold adventure story and plays with adult themes, such as love, duty, and family, through a child's perspective. Anderson's full visual pallette is on display here, as usual, and the film is gorgeous throughout.

  • Summary: Just another great Wes Anderson film. Quite frankly, he doesn't make bad movies, but this one is one of his best. It's a quaint little love story between two "tweens," if you will, (I hate that word). They both are considered outcasts, especially on this little island of very few people in the northeast, actually filmed in Rhode Island. One of the very best films of a very good year for movies.

  • Summary: This is Wes Anderson at his finest. It immediately gives off the same vibe as the Royal Tenenbaums. But it evolves into something much cuter and deeper. Like most of Anderson's movies, an all-star cast stepped up to the plate and delivered excellent performances. Norton and Willis took on their roles perfectly and brought the movie to the next level. The relationship between the two kids is beautiful and heartwarming.

Moonrise Kingdom review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave
18 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Philosophical, colorfully gorgeous, funny, excellently casted, and dark all in one mix. Brilliant direction, splendid soundtrack, lush cinematography, spectacular performances and an enticing screenplay makes this one of the best of the year and from the director. It starts off with a missing skilled Khaki Scout named Sam Shakusky (Jared Gilman) who meets-up with temperamental Suzy Bishop (Kara Hayward).

Young love, wes anderson style.

Jacob Zembower, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: Another delicious piece of trademark Wes Anderson whimsy. Moonrise Kingdom is a sweet, funny, melancholic film about first love. Once again Anderson has rounded up a great cast, with Edward Norton delivering an against-type but hilarious performance. Tilda Swinton once again proves that she is one of, if not the best, working actress today by taking a small role and making it memorable.

  • Summary: What sets this Wes Anderson feature above his previous is the awkwardly charming romance and childhood innocence that pervades the film. The story is unique, the characters are genuine, and it's undeniably funny. This is just a pleasantly enjoyable watch. I loved it!
