A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. (imdb)

Cute, safe little film that's just some straight up solid family fun. I'm not familiar with the source material but I found the character to be endearing and authentic. Film wise, I found some of the visual effects to be pretty good and the directing as well, and I thought the story was sweet and straight to the point. If you're looking for something to watch with the whole family, it's quite adorable and enjoyable. Solid movie!

It wasn't the childish morality, nor Paddington's cuteness that moved me. With a Wes Anderson-like quirkiness, Paul King creates this wonderful universe where things are just the way they should be. Along with the splendid visuals (CGI really has come a long way) there isn't really much to hate. Kids-animation at its best with a highly cinematic way of storytelling, a rare quality in a script-driven genre. If I'll ever have any kids, this would be exactly the kind of film I wanted them to see.

Unrelentingly charming, surprisingly very funny and slight, with significant doses of unexpected peril that may need to be noted for some little ones."Paddington" is a success on every level. It's one of the best family films I've seen in an age, and no doubt it'll be overlooked by many just because of the kind of film it is. But "Paddington" is not only a dashingly sweet and compact picture, but also superbly performed by its excellent cast and beautifully shot by King.

Sensationally charming. I get dragged to every kiddie movie that comes out, so I know the formula--this movie does not subscribe to it. Completely fresh, original, self-contained and beautifully shot. Not bawdy and loud and shrill like so much kiddie fare; it's not really even very funny as much as it is extraordinarily sweet and lovable and benign. The crowd enthusiastically applauded when it was over; I can't remember the last time that happened at a kid flick. In short, see it.

An adorable, warm and loving interpretation of the marvellous childrens' character. The backstory and supporting cast add depth and weight to the classic light comedy inherited from the books and TV show, a warm-hearted blend of wit and slapstick. The blending of CGI with real life is top-notch, and Paddington himself is as funny and loveable as ever, Ben Whishaw's vocal performance perfectly suited. Hard to leave without a smile on your face.

So at a time when Britain is beset by free roaming UKIP's and neo-fascism spreads all over Europe a movie claiming that everyone has the right to be loved and to have a home seems outright radical. Thus the most charming movie of the year is also the most political. That'll do, bear.

I knew this was going to be a delight right from the opening "archival footage" when the narrating explorer mentions bringing along a "modest timepiece" and it's a grandfather clock being lugged through the jungle. This wonderful British silliness is found everywhere in the film, from the exaggerated villain to the outrageous slapstick to the quirky scene asides (see the orphanage bit). Beautifully animated and colourfully shot, with a predictable story that's heartwarming nonetheless.

Paddington is so cute, so charming, and so lovable that it's so incredibly easy to overlook its flaws. That's ultimately what matters, isn't it? While you watch it, you're sucked in, you're laughing, and you're having a good time. Outside of a couple of predictable moments, its simplicity doesn't hit you until well after it's over. Sure, Paddington is a little too basic, but it's a children's movie. It does its job and it's a lot of fun for all of its 90+ minutes.

Like if Wes Anderson directed The Muppets. and was also very British. It's visually gorgeous and genuinely funny by any standards, not just for a kid's film, and is just so gosh-darn cute and charming I want to grab it by the cheeks. Bonus points for the pro-immigration message.

When updating a beloved children's character to CGI, you run the risk of alienating audiences; luckily Paddington bears right (sorry) and dodges that bullet, instead presenting a charming, heartfelt, and whimsical film. King's direction is great, pulling you into the bizarrely implausible yet ever so lovable, albeit Wes-Anderson-esque world that he creates. Sally Hawkins is perfect in her role, and the rest of the cast fit well in theirs. My only caveat is the 1950's morality that often pops up.

This is... fuckin' great. It's not that it's safe (it is, but that's one of its many merits), it's that the humor is organic to the characters and situation and every ounce of the film comes off charming. What propels it into greatness is Paul King's visual flair. Paddington may be CGI, but everything around him, everything he interacts with is real, and the world feels lived in and homey. And the film occasionally surprises with touching visual tricks that add to its personality. A real treat.

A CGI animal children's film that rises above all of the previous dreck in the genre largely thanks to Wes Anderson-esque stylings and warm-hearted family morals. Nicole Kidman is over-the-top and forgettable as a femme fatale villain and the sight gags are hit-and-miss, but the film nails the tone and heart-on-a-sleeve story of the Paddington books, while providing some entertaining set-pieces. Way better than I expected after seeing the previews last fall.

Yes, things have been updated quite a bit. There's more falling-down-the-chimney peril in the going. A manufactured Nicole Kidman villain gets a little threatening with her tranquilizer darts and taxidermy knife. There are just enough toilet humor giggles to make grumpy neighbor Reginald Curry harrumph. And there's a modern nod to a kind of "liberating" tolerance subtly woven into the subtext (something that can be seen from both sides of the moral mountain, if you will). (pluggedin.com)

Paddington shows a positive representation of the UK and manages to be a British film that can appeal to international markets. The story is what a family film should be and will probably go down as a classic. The acting is brilliant and some of the scenes are iconic. Heyday films have looked after this bear really well and continued Paddington's famous legacy.

Charming and moving with some genuine laughs. It's not exactly Pixar but it is actually fun for everybody. For kids, but just adult enough for older people. Once the action gets heavier at the end it loses a little steam but it's still good entertainment as a whole.

A great family comedy without the extra padding that films throw in. I loved this story, a young Peruvian bear from Darkest Peru comes to London to start a new life. Paddington is probably one of the cutest animated things I've seen since Agnes from Despicable Me. The animation on him is gorgeous. I also loved the family that takes care of Paddington. They are all fun in their own unique way. Nicole Kidman plays an excellent bad guy (although maybe a little shallow)...

Surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. The humor was very enjoyable and the visuals were wonderful. Seemed to feel obligated to add this Cruella Deville type antagonist character that brings down the movie. It's like they don't think kids will like a story unless there are those same old good vs. evil plots. The best parts are him acclimating to London and the Brown family along with the humor. Could have easily been a more subtle fish out of water character piece and honestly been even better

Pretty much a remake of 101 Dalmations without so many animals; Snow, pantomime baddies, inept henchmen, and a loving family trying to rescue the little cutie from Peru from a fate worse than death. Paddington is a load of fun, absolutely beautifully made, some great references to other films, really well acted by SH and HB, but for this cynical old bugger, slightly too cloying in the way the "message" was rammed home, and a rather predictable script. That said, for kids, it'd be hard to beat it

The film does an excellent job mining its theme--the importance of compassion and love for the outsider among us--with a generally delicate touch. King's pacing is quite good, mixing in brief comedic bits while moving the plot along, but never straying far from the central theme. The side characters are colorful without being too ridiculous, and while the end gets pretty conventional, the film simply avoids becoming a too-sweet and too-syrupy marmalade.

It doesn't happen often but this is a really fun movie for all the family to enjoy. Its amazing how the adventures of a CGI bear travelling to London can be so captivating but also so enjoyable. The story has a slap stick approach but the gags really work and every scene is very well choreographed/animated. I don't know how different the film would have been with Colin Firth's voice as Paddington but Ben Whishaw seems the perfect replacement. I highly recommend this movie,its a must see!

I really disliked the immature/slapstick humour this film has, but that's not all there is to it. It's actually quite witty, with a bunch of funny lines. And it does have some heart to it, backed up by pleasant performances from Bonneville and Hawkins. It seems like a decent adaptation, too. While the film doesn't break new ground in any form, it is a nice movie that should please kids and not annoy adults too much.

Paddington is a charming and pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the Paddington books and animations as a child. And many years on this film adaption is a thoroughly enjoyable reintroduction of the character. Films that entertain and cater for all ages are a rarity nowadays. But this is a worthy exception that will please the whole family. Ben Wishaw's voice work is perfect. And It's notable that this is an attractive & well made film that remarkably brings a CGI Paddington to life in the real world.

I saw the trailer and wrote this one off as for babies, but turns out the joke is on me - as of me writing this review (mid-July 2015) it's probably my third-favorite movie of the year so far after Mad Max and Kingsman (haven't seen Ex Machina yet!). It's a genuinely sweet and charming and good-hearted movie in all the best ways. True, it IS for kids, but if I had kids then this is the recent kids movie I'd most want to show them.

After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear (Ben Whishaw) makes his way to England in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed "Paddington" for the london train station, finds shelter with the family of Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary Brown (Sally Hawkins). Although Paddington's amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: Taxidermist Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman) has designs on the rare bear and his hide.

Well, I just had to know what all the hype was about and was expecting to be disappointed since it is so hyped. But, turns out there was a reason for it. The tone is so perfect that that you just can't help but get into it and root for Paddington. Not even mentioning how good these 6 year old visual effects still are. This film knows what it is so well and plays towards it so well. What a family film should aspire to be.

Treacly family comedy is pleasant enough for the most part, but is so maddeningly twee and affected in its storytelling that you wish for just a slight edginess to the humour or some genuine suspense to the drama. At least Kidman's modern spin on Cruella de Vil brings some vibrancy and excitement to proceedings (even participating in an amusing shout-out to MISSION IMPOSSIBLE) and cameos from Capaldi and Broadbent are fun.

A movie which one can genuinely describe as 'a touching film'. Not only does this make for a powerful (and important message) about caring for others, but it's also exciting and funny (never taking itself too seriously). The cast, in particular Hawkins, Bonneville, Kidman and Capaldi, really step into their roles with verve (Simon Farnaby is always good value even in small roles). Whishaw as the voice of Paddington works really well. The CGI that constitutes Paddington is super impressive.

Film is pretty well acted, cg's adorable, message of loneliness has its place there. Though I looked forward of seeing Paddy causing more mayhem than badguy that's always added to these adaptions. They're getting as annoying as added Scrappy-Mary Sues -let's call them Baddie Sues. They lose at end but take tremendously time from original's charm. "Talking animal? To the taxidermy!" Like tired Mad Magazine jokes all over. Comedic and sliceoflife moments luckily work for kids. Sequel could be good

[2nd watch] Paddington is jam-packed (or should I say marmelade-packed? Hah.) with lovely little details that elevate it far above your average family movie about a talking animal. The story itself is simple, heartwarming and – most importantly – focused. Paddington is a near-perfect children's movie. It doesn't pander to children with stupidity, and it doesn't pander to adults with jokes that only they will get. Hence, it is a great watch for all ages.

Paddington: "Mrs Brown says that in London everyone is different, and that means anyone can fit in. I think she must be right - because although I don't look like anyone else, I really do feel at home. I'll never be like other people, but that's alright, because I'm a bear. A bear called Paddington."

Well, of all the kid movies I have recently watched, this one was one of the few that was not disappointing. They handled the weirdness of a talking bear with a hat quite well and all the "slap-stick" that ensues is pretty well also. There is an intangible likability to Paddington, that carries the movie; together with a kind of passing commentary of how "blasé" people are in big cities like London (where a talking bear is not that out of the ordinary). The weak link was Kidman's villain.
