Netflix’s The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a new family movie for all to enjoy. With great voice casting and smooth animation, The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a movie that will play with all of your heartstrings as it shares a surprisingly delightful story about a dysfunctional family learning to reconnect once again.
From the creators of Gravity Falls (Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe) and Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Phil Lord and Chris Miller) The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a fantastical film that is amazingly fun to watch from start to finish. The brilliantly stylized CGI takes from Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse and builds upon it with some added medium blending to make for some amazing animation.
A family full of quirks puts together a technophobic dad and Young Katie Mitchell who recently gets accepted into film school. As accidents ensue, the family embarks on a life changing road trip as the world is suddenly taken over by robots! Filled with humour, you will enjoy the adventure of the Mitchells as they try to save all of humanity… in a more peculiar way. Learning how to work together with unfamiliar allies, The Mitchells vs. the Machines blur the lines of “good” and “bad”.
Neither human nor machine are free of fault in the movie and teaches the audience the value of meaningful connection no matter where it is from. Having the line between humanity blurred with having machines act as jilted lovers and humans cold and calculated. The movie raises the question not whether technology is good or bad for society, but how we use technology that shapes its meaning.
Filled with creative energy Netflix’s The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a movie to sit back and have a fun time. With jokes grounded in modern family life, the movie teaches the audience a lesson on what being family is all about.
