It’s more of the same, this being the third of fourth look we’ve seen from Genndy Tartakovsky’s film and there’s the same decent comic timing on show, along with some slightly generic design work, which is understandable when you consider the concept. Still, as always, the script is the key and there are a few good lines here.
See the words I’ve used in this post? Decent. Good. Generic. Clearly it doesn’t thrill me, but hey – it could be the BEST FILM EVER. So, I’m keeping an open mind.
“Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.”
