Jess the cat was the best part!

I really enjoyed this and Jess the cat proved to be the best part!

The cons.

First of all though, let's get the negatives out of the way - the voice of Pat was totally and utterly wrong, not sounding even a little bit like he is in the TV series. Point in fact, most of the accents that you'd expect - Alf, PC Selby, Mrs. Goggins - was grossly under-played or virtually non-existent in some cases. This was a big disappointment because without them Postman Pat loses a bit of it's quality and identity. The story, as I've read in other reviews, was a bit naff and unfitting - robots and talent contests wrapped up in a theme of identity? No, it just didn't work.

The pros.

The guest stars did an excellent job with their roles, especially David Tennant, who's character and voices provided some of the biggest laughs for me. That said though, you'd expect more participation from personalities like Rupert Grint and Ronan Keeting - their roles were simply too small to make any sort of difference to the plot and didn't seem to add that extra level of potential that they could have done. The tongue-in-cheek and 'parent' humour of self-referencing and parody to popular culture was very good indeed and gave it that 'British' quality by occasionally taking off shows and individuals who are established in the UK. I like how they've attempted to include aspects from the modern series, including the SDS and helicopters, etc., whilst openly admitting that the brand of Postman Pat has changed since it's creation but is still going for that English countryside simplicity feel.

The best parts for me - the brief cameo appearance of the Dalek and Lost in Space Robot were hilarious and had me rolling around in stitches.

Lastly, but certainly not least.... Jess the cat in the series was a great and funny additional. But in this, he's taken to a whole other level. Not only can he do acrobatics (wow!) but he's also the source of some of the best gags in the whole movie. Probably thanks to the CGI, in this his personality is much more defined and because he can present more visually he seems to be able to generate laughter so much more.

For each bad it has, Postman Pat The Movie has two goods. If you're expecting something directly related to the TV series or something which harks back to the classics, I fear you will be disappointed. But take it as it is and try and enjoy the laughs - you'll like it a whole lot more!

What's more, it's entertaining and simple enough for the kids to follow that their interest will be captured enough not to annoy you for an hour and half!

Poor, Poor, Poor

Nice (London Olympics style) intro, passable opening theme version but then horrors of horrors.....those voices...terrible. Sounds as if all the main characters have been ingesting helium. Did the Producers really buy into the franchise at all or were they just out to make a quick buck with celebrity voices and a poor tie in to a talent show. Anyone brought up on the original t.v. series will shake their heads at this very poor film. Ever watched Shaun the Sheep? that's the way to do a feature film- true to the original with MINIMUM changes. I hope this never crosses my path again and warn anyone thinking of watching this film to expect very little of the original- for that is what you will get.

A part of me feels like I should hate this, so why don't I?

I'll admit, for the first half-hour, I really didn't see what was so bad about this film. The first little while felt like an episode of the series and even the talent show story line at least made sense as Pat was doing it for his wife and not for himself, and Pat's always been selfless so that was great. I was already a little sceptical when they revealed the whole Robot Pat thing, but when it escalated into a bigger plot, this was where the movie almost lost me. I was able to accept the existence of cellphones and a PS Vita, of all things, in the world of Postman Pat, but the evil robot thing really shouldn't be connected to this.

And before you say anything, yes, I know movies connected to cartoon shows usually try to differentiate themselves from their source material. And honestly, I think the talent show plot was good enough. You could have had the fame and attention get to Pat's head only for him to learn a lesson in the end and that would have been fine. As if that's not enough, we also get a terminator reference and, yeah, is this really Postman Pat?

However, in spite of all of this, I found this strangely enjoyable, but more as its own stand-alone sort of thing. Like Tom and Jerry the movie, I don't really like this as something connected to its respective series but rather its own entity. Every time the movie did something to make me groan, like when the villain revealed his evil plan before it was too late for Pat to stop him and, probably the most painful of all, Jess not being able to tell the difference between his beloved owner and a robot, it managed to pull me back with either a decent joke or something equally entertaining.

All-in-all, I can see why a lot of Pat fans don't like this movie. After the first half-hour, it starts to lose a lot of its charm in favour for something I'd accept in any other animated film, but I still found it strangely entertaining. I can't recommend it, really, but it's a guilty pleasure for me.
