“Alvin & The Chipmunks” is into its third instalment and I was expecting a much more exciting storyline. Yes, there were more adventures for the furry characters, but many parts of the movie was pretty much predictable.
Probably with the third season, we are very familiar with the characteristics of the chipmunks. Hence, I was expecting a plot that goes a bar higher… and MORE singing from the 6 talking chipmunks!
Right from the first instalment of this movie, what attracted me was the singing part. Singing chipmunks – ain’t it the main draw of the movie? The way those chipmunk tunes weaved in nicely to the plot was pretty amazing. I had expected more in this third-parter. However, it was a tad disappointing this time round. While the chipmunks and chipettes caught up with times and sang to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry hit songs, the sequence was very short, and I just hadn’t have enough of it yet!
Alright, that’s just my personal take. But overall it was still a family movie to begin with, not a musical.
But… (bias) ALVIN!!! Why you no sing more songs?! =p
Ok… if there is ever gonna be a sequel to this again – part 4, that is – please write a chipmunks and chipettes concert story. Ha!
