SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE (2017) Movie Review
CHRIST IN CULTURE
So the smurfs suddenly realize that they are all dudes, except one! Hmm, that means that there must be more of them somewhere. Here is the classic road film. They are on a journey to unite with others. Indeed, life is always more that just us! Discovering others is a wonderful journey.
There is another theme in this film that is interesting. It is the "Paradise Lost" theme. There is a desire to regain paradise.
Excellent themes and excellent humor make this a great family film.
