‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’ review

A lot of Spoilers ahead!

The following review was what I had wanted these reviews to be, my free running thoughts taken down as I watched the movie.

My thoughts on the movie changed as the film progressed.

I’m hoping to write more like this.

Off the top of my head:

  • Didn’t watch Dora until Presley and Miles
  • All the callbacks to the show made me laugh
  • Isabela Moner as an older Dora was a good choice
  • Not for me and I don’t think Miles liked it
  • Goofy awkward fish out of water moments felt unnecessary 
  • Who were those meant for?
  • This got 84% on rotten tomatoes, I guess I should give it a shot
  • Eva Longoria?!
  • Ok, the kids were just kidnapped, this might get better
  • “Why didn’t I take mandarin?” (while everyone was speaking Spanish)
  • Movie gets better once kids are in jungle but there are still silly moments
  • Bet the “old friend” is a bad guy
  • Poo song made me laugh
  • Paused at 45 minutes and there is still so much more of the movie left
  • Some of this is meant for adults
  • When they breathe in the spores of the odd flower. Now this is getting amusing
  • I really want to see Indiana Jones now
  •  Called it with the bad guy
  • Boots can talk?! 
  • Wish the whole movie was treated like the last twenty minutes – taking things a bit more seriously
  • Ending was clearly inspired by Indiana Jones and the last crusade
  • Benicio Del Toro was the voice of swiped?!
  • Miles got into it more as the movie progressed (like his dad) but ultimately said he liked the cartoon better

2.5 out of 4 stars

2.5 because it got better towards the end.

Have you seen it? What did you think?
