Storyline

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression - except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever.

Cancer incarnate

Please, anyone reading this, do not go out and spend money on this 'film'. By doing so, you will be paving the way for the inevitable Emoji cinematic universe or 'Fidget Spinner: The Movie'. Never before have I deemed a movie to be evil, but the very act of taking the icons you use on your phone to convey some sort of emotion and converting them into the subject of an actual movie aimed at little kids is deeply sinister and shameless. A movie like this only further encourages the tech and screen obsessed children of 2017 to suck harder on the corporate teat that has consumed their entire short existence. Products like The Emoji Movie contribute heavily to the dumbing down of the culture and will only succeed in producing even more mindless and braindead drones. Just imagine for a second an entire generation of kids who grew up watching The Emoji Movie. I shudder at the thought. Cynical and shamelessly corporate crap like this 'film' only contributes further to a degenerate and dying culture. I mean we got the Angry Birds Movie last year and The Lego Ninjago Movie is still to come. How have children's movies come to this? Apps and plastic toy bricks are now greenlit into multi million dollar movies. This is child exploitation by corporations at it's finest, and the sad thing is many people don't seem to care. Watching magical and inspiring films as a child can help shape your morals, personality and even an artistic sensibility. I shudder to think of the types of people The Emoji Movie will produce.

When I was a child I loved to draw cartoons and was inspired by the many brilliant works of Disney and other classic animation. It was a lifelong dream that I would one day become an animator myself. How stupid I was, not thinking just how much the would change as I became an adult. Western 2D animation is dead, which is awful enough, but now they've come out with this brainless, mindless mess of pus-yellow-colored human waste. My dreams are dead. Everything I worked so hard at was a waste. A FAILURE. NO ONE in North America has ANY talent anymore. Last year we did have some decent stuff like Zootopia and Finding Dory, but this year it was two leaps forwards, a hundred gigantic leaps back. Now will someone kindly stop the world so I can get off?

If u spend $10 on this bs, then donate $10 to charity to have a clear conscience!!

Sony pictures are so desperate to make a franchise out of anything especially now that spider-man has gone back home to marvel that they are willing to sink this low to create this pile of dog you know what. Please fellow humans don't see this save mankind. We have seen movies on crappy minions, Lego toys now bloody Emojis', What next MEME movie? Go home Hollywood you are drunk!!

This movie was a pile of ????

The Emoji Movie is the worst movie I have ever seen in my hopefully short life. The funniest thing about this "jam packed comedy" was the fact that I was that nobody in the whole audience was laughing. The plot was predictable I felt no emotion towards a single character. The puns were

There is nothing

If I was God, and I heard this product was not only being made, not only being promoted, but actually released, then I would invite Satan over to manage the heavens so I could personally eradicate my failure below. This is the sort of product - because this is not truly a movie, as the word "movie" is too suggestive of art - that corporations fawn over. And they did. Believe it or not, three major production studios *fought* to make this happen. Of course, they wouldn't spend too much: Minions, a product almost as artless as this one, cost $74 million and runs for 91 minutes. In comparison, The Emoji Movie cost $50 mil and runs for 86 minutes. A 91-minute-long Emoji Movie would cost a mere $52.91 million; Sony cares less than the company that brought us screaming yellow screen- fever. They threw as little as they could at it. But that's just the math. In order to fully appreciate how apocalyptic this wretched insult to all things sincere is, consider the following; You, the assumed person seeking entertainment, go to the movie theater expecting to take a break or have fun. And while the blatant advertising (Dropbox™ is an important plot point, there's a pointless scene with Just Dance, apps all around etc.) and banality may be entertainingly laughable, the very same slithery gargoyles that gave you this product get the money. They count their cash, and they think "Hey, that worked." So they give you more of the same thing. And more of it. And more, until the idiocy is familiar and the ads the norm. It's already happened to music, with the same notes and lyrics repeated over and over again. Here we have the same situation staring us down, except instead of ass and cash the contents are something else they're trying to sell you. The Emoji Movie is an ad that you pay to see. Of course product placement already exists in film. The Lego Movie and Toy Story both feature products as characters, but those films had heart and personality. Here, there is nothing but product placement. Anything resembling humanity is just padding for the next app to appear. How vile for a product that constantly tells you to "express yourself." Do not watch this thing. Don't bring your kids to see it. Don't watch it ironically. Whatever your beliefs, biases, intentions, anything, do not give companies the thumbs up to feed us mediocre, heartless drivel.
