Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (10 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's a strong cinematic quality to this pup adventure that sets it apart from the regular TV series. With Paw Patrol: Jet to the Rescue young fans who might feel like they've grown out of the series can rejoin for this standalone adventure and feel the show has grown up with them. There's exciting set pieces, a thief mystery, scheming villains, clever comedy, and fist-pumping successes. And all while never sacrificing what makes Paw Patrol a universally watchable show. There's no extra threat or violence, and where there is peril, it's handled sensitively without losing any of the dramatic impact.

For example, when the Duke of Flappington uses the magical sceptre to pluck buildings out of the ground to make his new sky kingdom, there's no panic. But kids of any age can understand quickly that visually, something's not right. Similarly, the stakes are high when a clock tower hovers over a castle, a simple shot that gives scale to the potential destruction. Don't worry, Paw Patrol are of course on hand to save the day. Only this time in their flying jets, which give a futuristic, neon-soaked pizazz to the set pieces. In terms of our heroes, it's Skye who is front and center here. She overcomes her fear of eagles to lead the gang, and the movie, to victory.
