The narrative completion of “ABOMINABLE” is above the passing line, and the film’s biggest highlight is that the foreigners finally read China this time, no longer repeat the “hard fuse and weird chat” of Chinese and Western culture.

“ABOMINABLE”‘s understanding of current China today is absolutely commendable, and Pearl Studio has played a key role. This understanding of China in fact provides better result to the movie than the narrative.
The actress, Xiaoyi, lives in a typical big city in China, but her family is just an ordinary family. Xiaoyi, her mother, her grandmother, a family of three generations, and neighbors AJun, Peng Peng, all live in an ordinary residential building. An undecorated corridor, small street stores, granny steamed buns … the scenes are extremely down to earth and realistic. Most notably, DreamWorks 3D technology presents a fine restoration of China’s beauty. In the film, the attractions in Xiaoyi’s private collection include Thousand Island Lake, Huangshan, Leshan Buddha and so on. These places are perfectly presented by the production team. Audiences who want to avoid crowded scenes, can well take this screen travel with Xiaoyi.
“ABOMINABLE” ‘s theme is “family”. The story combines education and fun, perfectly completed, extremely suitable for children. The movie allows children to feel family’s love through happy laughs, and also have the courage to overcome the frustration and helplessness from family loss.
In addition, the film also has large part of Xiaoyi’s playing violin. Music has become her exit releasing her inner tie with her father. Children may fall for music lessons after watching these violin clips. One shot achieves two benefit. The film also gets McDonald’s IP cooperation. Something that can be bought as McDonald’s copyright movies, sales should not be bad.
