One of the Most Surprise Animated Films of the Decade
Verified purchase
This movie was the biggest surprise of the year. The animation is beautiful, the voice acting is solid, the plot is very simple but engaging, and the humor is over-the-top funny (thanks to Pinkie Pie). All the musical songs are equally fantastic (my favorite is We Got This Together).

If you're a MLP fan or looking for a good traditional animation, then this is the movie I have to recommend.

The Ponies You Love But Fancier Looking
Verified purchase
Friendship really is magic, and this sweet little movie is magical. I love this movie, and I love these cartoons, because I love the message in them. The idea that kindness, generosity, laughter, loyalty, and honesty creates magic between friends shouldn't be a foreign concept, but cynicism is strong in people. We tend to believe the worst in people, and so we confirm it by showing them little in the way of those qualities we most desire for ourselves.

This movie shows what can happen when we believe in ourselves and in our friends, when we step up and accept that friendship is a two way street, and that everyone is worthy of love and redemption.

As for the film itself, the voice acting is spot on, the characters are the ones many of us have loved since we started watching the cartoon years ago, and the budget is clearly bigger, as the animation is gorgeous. The soundtrack is catchy, too, with my favorite songs being "Time To Be Awesome," and "Open Up Your Eyes," the latter which is brilliantly sung by Emily Blunt. I wasn't much for Capper (voiced by Taye Diggs), but he was competently played. The villain, the much vaunted Storm King, was probably the weakest element, but I didn't care about the villain, what I ultimately cared about was the sweet little ponies I've come to love getting together on an adventure, and having a great time, which they did, and I did as well.

I highly recommend the film, and the series. It's worth every penny, and then some.

That said, just remember, if you ever think you're friendless and alone, you're wrong. You have more friends than you know. :)

Even my son enjoyed the movie
Verified purchase
My daughter loves it. Watches it all the time and can sing all the songs back to me. Even my son enjoyed the movie. Me,I am slowing sinking into madness listing to my daughter sing the songs over and over and over again. But it is better than listening to Elsa sing "Let it Go" a billion times. But if your kids like the Pony's they will love it.

Not like the show
Verified purchase
The names and colors of the characters are the only thing similar to the show. The art style shortened their noses, rounded their faces, and shrunk the ears. They looked like My Little Piggies. I don't mind the ways that they tried to show more emotions through facial details, but they portrayed charactures of each of the pony's personalities. It was overly dramatic, had minimal plot other than "hero's journey", and the plot that was there was so shallow that I feel brain damaged from diving into it so enthusiastically. It was a massive disappointment for me, who really likes the series. My kids (2 and 5) thought that the songs were fun. The 5 year old was a bit scared at times of the dark and scary monsters, but not badly enough to run off. The 2 year old liked how goofy everyone was acting. It's a family friendly movie if you have no expectations going in, and don't mind the simple writing.

Mmmm... No.
Verified purchase
Sooooo...

Pros:
- Pinkie Pie
- More detailed and energetic animation (though I'd say it's not as unique)
- A brief message about the balance between friendliness and caution when meeting new people
- An actual amusing joke about Hasbro which required a few legitimate references to tie it into one gorgeous pun

Cons:
- Some new characters are a moderate cause for concern, as they seem target yiffers a few times
- Hasbro being Hasbro, you can expect a few new ideas and designs that promote toy sales (forgivable because business is business, but tacky because business is business)
- Mean girl who ends up making friends in the end (cliche for the series)
- Big, bad villain with an unknown background who hates friendship and ponies who's eventually outplayed (cliche for the series)
- A second-in-command who's a source of weak jokes and doesn't do anything useful for anyone (cliche for the series)
- Disposable, mute henchmen (cliche for the series)
- A long list of songs that each have 3-6 words they will beat into your head at least 15 times each (and no, I'm not exaggerating)
- One song is actually catchy and enjoyable (and no, it's not just because Pinkie Pie leads it. It actually has a fun sound to it whereas the others focus more on strutting, moaning, autotune, or any combination thereof)

All in all, if you've seen even a fraction of the show, you've already seen this movie. The only notable differences are the animation, designs, and sharp drop in song quality. It's a good way to kill an hour and some change if you want to just shut off your brain and look at a bunch of pretty colors that are animated nicely, but I can't suggest it for any other purpose. I would say that the brief message I mentioned earlier about meeting unfamiliar people is a good reason to watch this, but the entire length of this movie for that two-minute segment? I think Sonic Sez is plenty in its stead.

Great movie! Doesn't fit the storyline from the Tv Series.
Verified purchase
The storyline doesn't fit the current My Little Pony Tv Series, but none the less I enjoyed watching this with my daughter who was able to point out all the pony characters other than the main 6. She was thrilled to see the movie again and again! I am just glad I am able to share something I loved from my childhood that me and my daughter can both enjoy. MLP fans forever!

Awesome Movie if You Like My Little Pony!
Verified purchase
Pros:
-New animation style that looks nicer than the show
-Has several memorable musical numbers, such as Time to Be Awesome
-SEAPONIES!!!
-Edgy pony with a disability and a dark past

Cons:
-Too short and some parts feel rushed because of this
-Too many new species with no introduction for one movie
-Some of the plot and comical bits tend to go over the heads of the younger target audience
-Being viewed as some sort of weirdo or pedophile for still liking colored ponies and cartoon movies in my twenties as a male
