Film review: Hotel Transylvania 3

Hotel Transylvania 3, one of the most expected sequel of 2018 not just by kids but also by parents, is a family fun movie that gets you in the holiday spirit. It’s the quirkiest film in the popular franchise and will certainly do well at the box office. The movie opens in UK cinemas on 27 July 2018.


The story 

In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation, our favorite monster family embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel.

The whole Drac pack is back next summer for a monster vacation as Griffin the invisible man (David Spade), Wanda (Molly Shannon) & Wayne (Steve Buscemi) the werewolves, Murray the mummy (Keegan-Michael Key), Dennis (Asher Blinkoff), Dracula (Adam Sandler), Mavis (Selena Gomez) & Johnny (Andy Samberg), Frank (Kevin James) & Eunice (Fran Drescher), and Blobby get ready for a family voyage on a luxury monster cruise ship.

It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

The verdict 

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is a summer treat worth watching as a family with an underlining message of tolerance and acceptance of differences. Mums and kids had all great fun at a media screening ahead of UK release on 27 July. It is a bit predicable if you have seen the first two movies but it manages to deliver a series of standalone monster slapstick gags. The film provides universally appealing light-hearted entertainment. Adults will pick up more grown-up jokes which are subtly squeezed throughout the movie. The characters are goofy and the kids laughed non stop for 90 minutes. At the end of the day, if they are happy, parents are happy too. It’s definitely worth a trip to the cinema on a rainy Summer afternoon. 

Kids’ Club rating: 9/10 

London Mums’ rating: 7/10 

Kids had a blast at the advance screening!

Look at me! I am on a Summer vacation with Drac ah ah
