PanamaTrickster Reviews: Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank (2022)

See movie reviews (with no spoilers) of the latest films from PanamaTrickster, an aspiring movie critic.


While being advertised as a pile of garbage, this movie actually surpassed my expectations for it. Still being riddled by the cop-out kids movie classic of raunchy toilet humor, Paws of Fury actually had a really fun amount of puns, gags and one-liners that landed incredibly well. It was established very early on that the film had no boundaries as far as what it will do to get a laugh, including 4th wall breaks, no laws of physics, classic Hanna-Barbera slapstick type things. A lot of the humor was also reminiscent of the type of laughs that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs introduced to me when I was younger.

The animation style was different. Not to go as far as to say spectacular by any means, but it was not bad at all. It felt like it may have been a team animating on a low-budget software program for people just starting out or learning the ropes of CGI, but the team is seasoned in animation and just operating on outdated software. Sort of like the best of the worst type of animation.

The character development happened a bit too fast, and the audience was expected to just accept the feelings of the characters before we truly got to know them and their motives. So while it was a bit too fast paced, the movie did a good job of letting us know that it was well aware of that.
