Even if you manage to get over the quirkiness inherent. In this little furry doughnut-shaped creature with a hole in the middle. Something is puzzling about this family animation that manages to be incredibly confusing and exhausting.
The doughnut creatures are called Flumels and exist in the remote Galapagos Islands:
Who rolls like a wheel and picks flowers. But destroyed entire species in the 19th century just moments before Charles Darwin arrived to find them.
All but two Flumels, brothers and sisters Op and Ed (why those names? Who knows?), are voiced by Adam Devine and Rachel Bloom. Encouraged by the other Flumels for their penchant for accidents, Op and Ed are sucked into a mysterious flower. That catapults them into modern-day Shanghai (the film was shot in China).

It turned out that a Chinese professor was examining these flowers that bloom all the time, but then they disappeared. With a bit of help from the professor’s white furry dog (Ken Jong).
Op and Ed find themselves in an abstract realm beyond space and time (but essential to the plot). Where another extinct species aids them in their quest. Go back and save their Flummel comrades from extinction and find the professor. Or so.
It’s hard to imagine who would enjoy all this. Hilarious jokes and humorous humour (many of which involve holes) can entertain younger audiences. But the intricate time-travel storylines will be too confusing for them. It’s also confusing older viewers and adds that the arbitrariness and illogicality are bolts.
Wings, for example, have never seen a dog. But they know what a cat is – how?. The lively animations are several levels below Pixar standards. Many characters look like copies of other films: dinosaurs from Toy Story, mammals from Ice Age, birds from Up, etc. In the world of Darwinian children’s entertainment, Extinct looks like an evolutionary dead end.
Lack of exciting films fantasy and reality
Flummels, the made-up word for furry creatures, are cute little creatures with large eyes and flexible ears. One hundred million years ago, they were everywhere until they disappeared.
One day Op and Ed, two playful young Flumels, discover a mysterious wormhole that they still have. Suddenly surrounded by skyscrapers and city lights, the Flumel family was confused about their location. You will go on crazy adventures through Shanghai, meet new friends and create epic memories. A unique blend of stop animation and action, Extinct is an emotional and entertaining story. About friendship, family, and the harsh realities of growing up.
The film boldly blurs the line between the two worlds with cutting-edge visual effects. That will delight audiences of all ages.
A feature film about the fun aspect – disappearing is ideal for the audience.
“Flummels” is a fun but challenging story designed to appeal to children and adults. While there is morality (be careful what you ask for). It is funny that it doesn’t teach or suppress other cultures. The film’s animations are colourful and smooth With well-drawn characters that are instantly cute (and funny), making their stories easier to follow.
The Lost Movie depicts an unlikely partnership between a hairy doughnut-shaped creature and several extinct animals that collapse before falling. The story is simple but exciting. As the film progresses, it explores what makes each species unique and shows that humans can be the same. The film is well written and has a solid behind-the-scenes cast, including Op and Ed.
Extinct 2021 is an excellent choice for families looking to have fun. With their kids on a rainy afternoon or evening. The animations are colourful and lively but not very realistic. The plots are fun for kids to follow and learn from, but adults will enjoy them.
