Christopher Robin is a movie that allows you to channel your inner-kid. The movie is about a child named Christopher Robin, who grew up playing in a forest with his stuffed animals. Eventually, as he got older, he was sent to boarding school and assimilated into modern-day human society. Leaving his past life behind him. Now as an adult, Christopher is miserable, having to work overtime every day, never spending time with his family, his life has become bleak and bland. But one day, his old pal Winnie The Pooh shows up, and together they return back to his childhood home and revisit his childhood. The movie is a true gem and has a plethora of morals that can be found throughout the film. This movie is a tribute to all of us and shows that we can never be too old to have fun. I rate this movie 4/5 stars. - @CoolReadz of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board.
This is a movie anybody can enjoy, not just children. This movie is about an adult Christopher Robin who reunites with Winnie The Pooh while he is stressed out about work. While it is a children’s movie, adults and teenagers can watch it and understand some of the deeper meanings behind the movie, like the fact that "Heffalumps" and "Woozles" are not just bad guys to Christopher’s stuffed animals, they symbolize adults and growing up. As a teenager watching this, I found a lot of the scenes very comedic and I found Winnie The Pooh in the movie incredibly hilarious. I usually do not like more childish movies that much, but I loved watching this one. I really recommend this movie to everyone. I rate Christopher Robin 4/5 stars. @Kyky18 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
Disney forgot that young children are going to watch this and they might be frightened by the storyline. Christopher Robin is an adult now and has a family. When he abandons his family, he encounters his childhood friend, Winnie the Pooh who helps him return to Hundred Acre Wood, where he discovers his old friends. Watching Winnie the Pooh wander through Hundred Acre Wood wasn’t cute; it was more like a horror movie gone wild. It is a shame the film neglects to give Christopher’s wife, Evelyn a personality or any adventure of her own. Despite, the horrors depicted in the film, there are some heart warming scenes. The overall movie was dark as in the lighting, colouring, and grey skies. Then there were moments of happiness and cheer. But the darkness overshadows the light throughout the film. Disney focuses way too much on the darkness and so the movie lacked Disney’s classic magic. 3.5 out of 5 stars. @janmorrow1225 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
