Based on Aaron Blabey’s series of children’s books, the film packs the whole entertainment package with something for adults and kids alike.

There is everything to please in this animated film! The voice cast is impressive, the laughs are smart, the cinematic references are cheerful, and the animation is happy and colorful. The film opens in a restaurant in Los Angeles where humans and anthropomorphic animals coexist. Mr. Wolf (Sam Rockwell), the leader of the Bad Guys, a gang of animals with gruesome reputations, and Mr. Snake (Marc Maron), his second-in-command and security expert, discuss birthdays before embarking on the full heist mode (I love you Honey Bunny). Hacker Ms. Tarantula (Awkwafina), Master of Disguise, Mr. Shark (Craig Robinson) and Mr. Piranha (Anthony Ramos) make up the rest of the gang.

Shark is such a master of disguise that he stole the Mona Lisa by dressing up as the Mona Lisa; if you can imagine a tall white man disguised as art’s most famous smile! Tarantula is frustrated with the captcha to prove she’s a tarantula, while Piranha is a bit of a loose cannon with a flatulence problem.

The villains

Director: Pierre Perifel

Voice cast: Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson, Anthony Ramos, Richard Ayoade, Zazie Beetz, Alex Borstein, Lilly Singh

Scenario: The bad guys pretend to be good to pull off the ultimate heist

Runtime: 100 minutes

There’s an elaborate plot to steal the Golden Dolphin, which involves convincing the Governor, Diane Foxington (Zazie Beetz) and annoying guinea pig philanthropist, Professor Marmalade, (Richard Ayoade) to give them a second chance.

There’s also Misty (Alex Borstein), the police chief whose sole mission in life is to put bad guys behind bars, and Tiffany (Lilly Singh), the newsreader who leans towards hyperbole in her reporting. .

The animation style drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including Hergé and Manga, while cinematic influences include Quentin Tarantino, Luc Besson, and Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean films. In fact, when Wolf talks about launching the Charm Offensive, Shark mentions “the complete Clooney”! Incidentally Wolf, who is also the driver of the getaway, is rather charming.

Based on Aaron Blabey’s series of children’s books, The villains offers the entire entertainment program with something for adults and children.
