What happens if the house pets gather and chat like humans. That's what happened in the film The Secret Life of Pets. This film, which was produced by Chris Renaud with Illuminati Records, is suitable for those of you who like animated films as well as animal lovers. Because the animation presented is very entertaining and adorable.
Starting from the story of Max, a Jack Russell dog who is raised by a dog lover named Katie. Katie has cared for Max from childhood to big and the two of them have a very close relationship. But Max always wonders, where does Katie go every day? Why do humans always leave their pets behind in the morning and come back after nightfall?
Not only Max feels this, but all pets ranging from dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs, and others. Max doesn't feel too lonely because he can always hang out with his neighbors who are also pets in the apartment building where he lives.
Long story short, one day Max was surprised when Katie came home, suddenly he brought a Mongrel dog which has a very large body. His name is Duke, and Katie accidentally brings Duke from the wild dog shelter to accompany Max.
But Max and Duke don't seem to get along. Max doesn't accept that there is a new dog in his house and then Max tries to get rid of Duke. Knowing Max's intentions, Duke also looks for a plan so that he can survive with his new master.
But amid the feud between Max and Duke, the two of them finally fell into real calamity. The two, who continue to fight, lose their pet tag necklace which was taken by a group of pet-hating stray cats. The great threat Max and Duke experienced awaits before your eyes! They will be caught by wild animal control officers.
Apart from dealing with animal control officers, Max and Duke also have to face a gang of wild animals led by Snowball, a white rabbit who can fight like a mafia.
The story that is presented in the film The Secret Life of Pets is fairly simple, but the presentation is very fresh and entertaining. Where a dog is jealous because his master came home with a new dog, maybe the audience can already guess where this story will take. But this film seems to be aimed at young people, especially children so that a simple storyline will be easier to understand.
Intriguing humor is conveyed in a way that is also simple. Not only through funny dialogue, but the adorable behavior of the characters. Just like the minion character from Despicable Me who was also produced by director Chris Renaud, The Secret Life of Pets also has an absurd, a little harsh, and quite an ironic joke. Where animals that look cute, tiny, and lovable can just do crazy weird things. Like for example the Snowball, the white rabbit who speaks like a gangster leader, to Leonard the Poodley dog who likes metal music.
Also, the silliness of one scene can have multiple hits and continue to churn the audience's stomach. Like when the Duke beat up the sacred snake, hit the rubble, and built a wall, then when the snake woke up, the same thing was repeated even with excessive dramatization that caused an explosion.
Another cuteness is when these animals behave like humans. For example, when the fat cat Chloe messes up at Pops' house and is recorded with an action cam and then uploaded to YouTube. Finally, Chloe's action became the most popular video.
Animated, The Secret Life of Pets isn't too fancy either. Simple with bright cinematography. The voice actors who play each character seem to fit into their respective roles. Especially the most striking is Kevin Hart who voices Snowball. Many times the audience laughed at his speaking style that sounded like a gangster leader. Also, Jenny Slate voices Gidget, a chatty but cute female Pomeranian.
But in addition to entertaining humor, this film also has a pretty touching moral and drama message. Especially about the friendship between the animals who work hand in hand in carrying out the rescue mission. Uniquely, this film also has several action scenes that are quite tense. Like when Max is being chased by a gang of wild animals, and especially at the end, where Max and Duke are chasing cars with animal catchers on the bridge like real action movies.
You can watch The Secret Life of Pets with your family. But of course, you still have to provide supervision for children while watching this one film. Because there are still some scenes that are inappropriate for early childhood to imitate. The Secret Life of Pets started airing on bisokop New York starting August 24, 2016. Oh yes, before the film starts you will watch short movie footage from the Minions Despicable Me.
