Based on the popular webcomic, this wildly clever and super-whimsical animated feature is pretty close to as good as they get. Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Nimona, a shape-shifting creature who teams up with a medieval knight (in futuristic times), after he is framed for murdering the queen. The dazzling animation is unlike anything seen recently (perhaps a little reminiscent of 2020’s ‘Wolfwalkers’) and is perfect not only for the fantastic action but also the buckets full of heart that will have you sucked in and cheering along instantly. The sharp, witty script will keep adults rolling, and their kids will have the time of their lives.

4.5/5 stars
