Did you know that “Hotel Transylvania 3” is the first in the series where the main antagonist is not the monster? Actually, it is featuring a human who has a strong dislike for the monsters.Director Genndy Tartakovsky has done it again. It is a 10/10 movie that has the strong anti-prejudice message. It is well written and with stunning effects. “Hotel Transylvania 3:Summer Vacation” is a true “monster-piece”.
Draculas’ daughter Mavis convinces him and the rest of the family to go on a vacation. A vacation far away from their own vacation center. It is a cruise ship called “Legacy”, which is, in fact, a trap for the monsters.
The plot of the movie centers around the “love story” of the Dracula (Adam Sandler) and Ericka (Kathryn Hahn). Ericka is the captain of the cruise ship and the first human Dracula got attracted to.
The love story is not what it seems since Erica is not “into” Dracula. Head over heels in love, Dracula isn’t noticing anything strange about Ericka. Although behaving like she is in love with Dracula, Ericka has a different plan.
Ericka is the great-granddaughter of Abraham Van Helsing. He was the notorious monster slayer and Dracula’s ancient archenemy.
And that is a nice twist. We finally thought that Dracula will heal the wounds of losing Martha. The woman he loved the most, the mother of Mavis.
The main message is in the “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” finale – you can fall in love again.
The movie has a happy end, of course. And it is good because it makes it a good choice for watching with your family. It is perfect for kids. And for the dates, too.
A third sequel is great since features a new destination. And the new adventures of the loved characters.
The real importance of the movie series lies in their ability to tackle the big issues. Such as prejudices, family matters and differences between different humans and monsters. The humans are portrayed as villains in the first movie and the monster is taking refuge from them. This movie, like others from the series, has a strong message that there is a good in everyone.
Since children are the primary audience of this movie, a movie provides a lot of fun for them. Assuming the short attention span of the kids, scenes are short. Also, some scenes are made to wake up toddlers. It happens when the “serious matters” are going on.
The “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer vacation” has a lot of flashy moments and a great humor. It is something we got used to from previous parts.
It is the endless inspiration that is derived from the clash of the worlds of monsters and humans. Although humans and monsters are quite similar.
For example, they have the same idea of a date night, which is a dolphin ride. And the Dracula is not killed by the garlic like Ericka expected. He just made the “human” sound.
This very creative movie is accompanied by the stunning visual effects. Some scenes really look hard to make. But since it is a produced by Sony Pictures Animation it is obvious that they had a great team behind.
We are expecting the video game with the same title to keep us busy until the next movie.
It seems that the “Hotel Transylvania” franchise will last for a long time. Can’t wait to see the next release.
