This new version of The Grinch meets to entertain and enlighten new generations of viewers about the history of that character and promote their message of union and solidarity. [Full Review in Spanish]

... odds are you've already read the book or watched the original. And knowing that The Grinch doesn't ruin Christmas won't stop anyone from enjoying this delightful film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

The result is a meandering, low-stakes affair, punctuated by fine but forgettable visual jokes.

[It] feels about 75 minutes too long.

The whole deal with the Grinch is he is supposed to be, if you'll forgive me, a seemingly irredeemable bastard. He literally lacks the capacity for any kind of love. If he's just kind of a crabby neighbor everything is less impressive in juxtaposition.

(Nowhere) near perfect, but ... an undeniably fun film to take the family to as Christmas approaches and to remind all that love and kindness can change things for the better.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.75/10

Colourful and amusing enough, and yet, like so many Christmas movies, it's all a bit forgettable - and iffy...Bah, humbug.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

The Grinch isn't a bad movie, but neither is it a necessary one. And that's OK - he might not be the Grinch we deserve, but he's the one we need right now.

The colors hypnotize and the textures surprise, but something seems to have been lost in the translation. Something about the character and touch Seuss. [Full Review in Spanish]

Whilst The Grinch may not entirely capture the festive feels, the kids should certainly get a pre-Christmas kick out of it.

This serving from Illumination (the Despicable Me people) is a handsome, by-the-numbers kids film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The animation is top-notch and unlikely to cause half as many nightmares as Carrey and company's grotesque prosthetics.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

For viewers of a reduced age, The Grinch will soon be all the rage. For those known to be somewhat older, the reception will be slightly colder.

There are occurrences that the little ones will enjoy more than the pre-adolescents or the occasional adult companions. [Full review in Spanish]

The Grinch took out too much, without adding much of anything. It wasn't Seussian enough and didn't add enough of an original plot to hold adult interest. Its humor also fell flat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 27, 2018
The Grinch installs himself with an immense palette of vivacious colors, ingenuity and a bet on visual comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 26, 2018
[The Grinch] is excessively well-meaning and very tame. No doubt it will please those who will always love the story, no matter what shape it takes, but you have to be a fan.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

This newest Grinch lacks plenty of magic between some lazy animation and not taking any risks. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's the same. The Grinch, other than the expanded story and the upgraded effects, is exactly the same and leaves you with the same warm feelings for the holidays.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Cumberbatch... does not let us down.
