It's a thin premise that cues much cheery knockabout comedy, with ample scope for impressively whooshy 3D tracking shots. If the action gets somewhat repetitive, very young viewers are unlikely to mind.
"Thunder" falls into the common mistake of many children's films - it underestimates its audience.
Los Angeles Times:
"Thunder and the House of Magic" epitomizes the sort film of that's supposed to be fun for the whole family, but that no one actually enjoys.
New York Times:
Marrying American voices to Belgian animation, this candy-colored adventure has a harum-scarum energy that rarely flags.
This 3D kids' animation about a plucky kitten adopted by an elderly magician is a mixed bag of tricks.
Thunder and the House of Magic is That Touching Cat Chase Cartoon You've Been Looking For
"Thunder" doesn't boast a distinctive look or a cast of famous voices. But its characters are engaging and its action sequences exhilarating.
