The movie Trolls is a 3D animation that is suitable for children. The movie did have nice songs they can jump around to and it has a theme filled with colors they will find appealing. As an adult though the movie’s style of delivery went over my head. Many irrelevant characters, nothing meaningful about some of the Trolls lifestyle and happenings that will lead you to a path you wish a movie will never take you, the path you suspended your common sense just to keep up.

The movie is fictional and you will think all you need is an imagination and a childlike heart to understand, but I tell you the writers also need you to forget to think. How they merged many of the various events into one is worth seeing that I tell you, the problem is you will not enjoy a bit of it.

I was not expecting much when I decided to see this movie and I was not blown away by the happenings or letdown by the lack there of. The movie is suitable for your children to see on a nice day when there is nothing better showing. Within all this bad stuff are cool songs, nice voice acting by Justin Timberlake and a very colorful event.

Trolls is based on the Troll Dolls and this 3D animation is produced by Dreamworks Animation, also in the upcoming Oscars, it received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for "Can't Stop the Feeling!"

The movie plot starts with the introduction of the two main creatures at play, The Bergens and The Trolls.

The Trolls are small creatures who spend their whole life in perpetual state of happiness. You will find them throwing parties, making stuff and doing everything they can to keep the music playing. They dance and hug each other to a point of nausea.

On the other side of the coin is the Bergens, large ugly things who believe they can never feel happiness.
Then they came about the Trolls and all their happy moments, then they discovered that eating a Troll will instigate a moment of extreme happiness.

So, they captured the Troll tree, locked it in a cage and hold an annual festival where each Bergen gets to eat a Troll. The Troll not wanting to be eating every year, on one faithful year escaped via a tunnel, leaving the Bergens in a state of forever sadness.

Things didn't remain like that for long for the now free and happy Trolls and the sad Bergens, what happened next is what the movie is about.
