Reviews for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation ( 2018 ) 1080p

too hyperactive and less substance.

By: NEON POLTERGEIST
I really like the first two movies. they are charming and has a nice flow.But Transylvania 3 is more of a display of hyperactive animation.How can every character move in the most annoying ways and every clip is fast-paced that it reminds me more of a looney toon show.I had to turn off after 10 minutes so my opinion doesnt really matters that much but the first movies didnt have that effect. i was glued to the screen.I,m a cinema fanatic so I notice very fast when quality drops.and the beginning was so ridculous and bad that it problably sets the tone for whats to come. This time I judge a movie before even having watched it through. you just know this will be bad.

Not the Same

By: axgameboy
I Feel as If Hotel Transylvania 2 Was Not the Same Mostly At All. I feel Like it didn't have such Good Character development, Like it felt much Sillier than The Other 2. Worst of all, it Felt Like it was Lazily Made.

Missed the mark

Visually great, fun music, entertaining concept, talented cast and yet I don't remember laughing out loud. Not even once.

Sort Of A Downhill

Although I do recommend this movies to families who like movie series like Hotel Transylvania and are looking to have a good time, I'm gonna be real. It wasn't really the best of the series from my point of view. I mean think about it. This movie reminded me more of a YouTube Family Vlog in the day of a beach or a boat only then to lead to an ending that I saw coming all the way. The movie did overall a good job of it being oddly entertaining. But it won't get rid of the fact that the movie jokes were just cliche and somewhat just wacky. I understand it's a family movie but how about we just get to the plot already. And speaking about the plot, It was just a plot that I've seen like a million times already. The antagonist wants to kill the protagonist only then to fail at the end. And with all this romance building up between Drac and Erika made it obvious that they were gonna like each other in the end. That's your typical cliched movie. But hey I will admit it, The movie was oddly entertaining and the DJ scene was pretty cool to watch and was one of the most entertaining scenes of the movie. So I would still recommend this to a family who love movies like these. But overall I really didn't see anything surprising and just making it look like some kind of YouTube Family Vlog with a cliche plot. So I am sorry to say but I sadly give this movie a 4/10

Awful

By: sarahcarter-57143
We as a family loved the first two films but this was boring bland and not at all funny the "jokes" fell flat and seemed forced not one person in the cinema laughed all through the film don't waste your time seeing this film

Nothing special.

By: gillgarro
Sometimes films have deeper meanings to them and adult jokes throughout, but this one certainly didnt. I (20yr) went with my 8yr old sister who enjoyed it but wasn't raving about it. We went to see the Incredibles 2 earlier this month which was much better than this. However, if you're looking for a nice PG film to keep the kids entertained during the summer than this movie is what you're looking for.

Disappointed

By: Luna-tic
No where near as good as the first two movies. You've seen the ads you've seen the movie. As Drac would say other than Drac the other characters are blah. On top that saw it in 3D and there were zero 3D effects. Felt they phoned it in on this one. Also upset cuz we saw this over Ant-man. Mediocre as they come.

Why the lower rating?

By: Eric Stevenson
This website seems to think the movies got worse as they went on, while RottenTomatoes thinks the opposite. I'm going with RottenTomatoes on this one. The advertisements made it look like it took place at the beach, when the beach barely appears at all. The basic plot is that Dracula and the monsters are going on a vacation on a cruise. This film probably only works so well because of Ericka. This has got to be one of the funniest characters I've seen in awhile.

Her appearance seems to be based on Popeye. She just steals every scene she's in, especially with how she's constantly in motion, a trait rarely seen in female cartoon characters. It's admittedly a tad predictable, but still quite nice. It helps that the animation is so impressive. It seems like Adam Sandler is just pumping out movie after movie and this is one of his best. It really does feel like a feature length Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry cartoon. ***

Hotel Transylvania 3 is a delight! If you're a fan, you will love it. Humor is spot on and Adam Sandler created a movie with a fun feel. Must see!

Just a fun time

By: jwwalrath-227-85487
Though the film lacks the emotional backbone and steadier plot of the first one, I found this to be genuinely fun makes up for the lackluster and slightly mean-spirited second film.

The main plot in this is a little predictable. Not bad, just obvious. But, this film is more about the journey than the destination. The installment is more segmented, following the many, many monsters in their own storylines. This is actually to HT3's benefit. The main emphasis here is humor and they mine the heck out of it. Think of HT3 as more of a series of Saturday morning cartoon/Looney Tunes-style skits.

Director and animation veteran Gendy Tartakovsky, ups his game with his unique style of distinctive animation and fluidity of movement. (Again a very old-school cartoon-style.) The new character Ericka, the captain of the ship, is especially impressive in the sheer amount of detail given to her various facial expressions and body motions. The characters remain distinctive-looking and colorful. The cruise ship setting really pays off with the different attractions the characters visit are visually arresting.

The movie also solves the previous villain problems of the last two films. Rather than have a shoehorned in villain who appears briefly and feels more like an afterthought, we finally have villains who appear throughout and are actually vital to the plot.

There are two little weak spots to the film for me. First, there's Ericka's chin. It's just a little too pointy and oddly angled for its own good. Second, the movie gives children the misguided message that love exists immediately at first sight.

Again, this may not be a Pixar/Disney level movie but is entertaining in its own little way.

The monsters are back. This time the patriarch Count Dracula is seeking love and companionship. He is lonely. After unsuccessful attempt in seeking a partner on the inter web he discovers a love interest in the beautiful Captain of a holiday cruise ship. A love tale of hope and love, this sweet story showcases how life is too short, even if you have eternal life and to live alone in a sea of strangers. I loved it and it made me believe in happily ever after regardless if things work out as planned. Dr Wilson Trivi?o

If you loved the previous two you're going to love this one as well...

While on a vacation with his family, Count Dracula makes a romantic connection. Hotel Transylvania is probably one of the most underrated animated franchises i have ever seen in my life. And once again they nailed it with Part 3, such a total blast with lots of great humor but also great messages for both kids and their parents too. I love the chemistry between Erica and Dracula it was so adorable and romantic plus once again the animation was just brilliant. If you truly enjoyed the other 2? You're going to love this one as well if not? Watch something else or just wait for Mission Impossible 6. (A+)

Fun for whole family

I loved this film. It's funny and creative. Kept my daughter (9.5) captivated. She just had to call Grandma afterward to tell her all about it.
