Dolittle review

Fans are upset as Robert Downey Jr's film, Dolittle fails to entertain the audience. Check out the Dolittle review.

A Doctor/Veterinarian who can talk and communicate to animals, Dr Dolittle stars Robert Downey Jr as the new Dr Dolittle with Eddie Murphy playing the character in the previous instalments of the film. This edition of the movie has a bunch of talented actors voicing the animals; Emma Thompson (Polynesia), Rami Malek (Chee-Chee the gorilla), John Cena (Yoshi the polar bear) and Octavia Spencer (Dab-Dab the duck), Tom Holland (Jip the Dog), Ralph Fiennes (Barry the tiger) Selena Gomez (Betsy the giraffe) and Marion Cotillard (Tutu the fox). The story revolves around Dolittle leaving on a voyage to an island which has never been found in an attempt to save Queen Victoria who is sick and the craziness that follows in the whimsical adventure. Read on to find out the full Dolittle review.

The 2020 version of the movie based on Dolittle series: The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle has not been receiving the reviews as anticipated, with the test audiences hating the movie and the movie undergoing a number of rewrites and reshoots, Director Stephen Gaghan failed to hit the mark. With a bunch of CGI animals that do all the animal stuff and a little more than that (of course, talk) we enter the world of craziness and adventure. As the movie moves forward we forget about the boy who willing joined the doctor as an apprentice. The animals manage to bring a stir of laugher with their tactics.

It cannot be considered to be one of RDJ's best performances as it seems like he has a forced accent trying hard to look the part of a doctor from the 19th century. There is a restlessness in his behaviour that makes us love the previous instalments more.
