Last week, I had the pleasure of going to the Cinemark Theatre and watching The Emoji Movie. It was entertaining and very interesting. It is an animated movie focused on attracting younger ages, but I think it is appropriate for all ages.

The movie took place in Textopolis, and they traveled all through the main character Alex’s phone and the apps on the phone. Alex, the meh emoji, jailbreak, high five, smiley and the meh parents are all main characters in the movie.

The movie is about a meh emoji who can change emoji faces. The smiley emoji tries to erase the meh emoji, and they have to travel through Alex’s phone so he can be a normal meh emoji. His friends and he have a few obstacles to overcome to get to the cloud. In the end, she realizes he likes being himself, and being different is awesome.

I liked the movie overall but I think they could have done better in a few scenes of the movie like the big reveal of jailbreak. I don’t like how the movie ended. There were a few scenes that could have been more detailed and specific. They could have made a few scenes a little longer.

The moral/theme of the story is that it is perfectly okay to be different and to stand out. They wanted the viewers to understand it is okay to be yourself and everyone will eventually accept you and star being themselves to.

I would suggest the movie to all ages. It was very entertaining and had a good moral/theme behind the story. It was awesome because it was about modern problems with society today.

I would have to rate The Emoji Movie an 8 on a scale from 1 to 10.
