The long-awaited live-action version of the villainous ‘Cruella’ hits theaters tomorrow (27), and the first reviews have already been released.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the feature film starring Emma Stone received 75% approval, based on 78 reviews.
So far, 59 are positive and 19 only negative.
Among the main comments, some journalists were surprised by the plot “dark and clever, but also fun and extravagant”.
Stone’s performance was also highly regarded and the star is so convincing that he managed to rename the character immortalized by Glenn Close in the film “101 Dalmatians” (1996).
In addition, most analyzes were also unanimous in emphasizing the costumers’ attention to every detail of the clothing worn throughout the plot.
Still, some comments were quite drastic, like the Washington Post, which says:
“‘Cruella’ achieves the dubious feat of being boring, transgressive, chaotic and inert all at the same time.”
Check out the reviews:
“With stunning looks, a thought-provoking story and stellar twists from Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, ‘Cruella’ is a spring / summer 2021 satisfaction.” – Empire.
“Cruella” has the thrilling energy of a rock concert and is the best live-action Disney adaptation to date. “- Pay or wait.
“Cruella” is a darker, smarter and more stylistic film than expected. While it may not appeal to younger people, there is a lot to enjoy here. – Flick Fan Nation.
“Emma Stone shines on ‘Cruella,’ which also works as one of the best revamped versions of her Disney animated classics.” – We’ve got it covered.
“While there is energy and delivery in the adaptation, ‘Cruella’ seems stitched together from different influences to justify a rather desperate attempt to renew interest in a decaying property.” – Screen International.
“The film almost failed without the compelling chemistry of the actors. – Pittsburgh Magazine.
“Cruella” isn’t just a designers’ paradise, it’s an extravagant and fun film that also challenges us to look at people in shades of gray. – Nightmare Summons.
“Cruella,” a new live-action film, presents the story of legendary and most iconic – and notoriously fashionable – Disney villain, Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s London in the midst of the punk rock revolution, the film features a young con artist named Estella (Emma Stone), a smart and creative girl determined to make a name for herself through her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves and together they build a life for themselves on the streets of London. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of Baroness Von Hellman (Emma Thompson), a fashion legend who is terribly chic and scary. But their relationship sets off a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her rebellious side and become evil, elegant, and revenge-oriented Cruella.
Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Emily Beecham and Kirby Howell-Baptiste complete the cast.
Craig Gillespie, of the remake of “A Hora do Espanto”, takes the direction, from a scenario signed by Tony McNamara (“A Favorita”).
