Star Performance

Benedict Cumberbatch lent his voice to Grinch. He had to modulate his voice in various styles and he did it perfectly. The funny voice modulation by Cumberbatch is impressive and kids like it for. Similarly, Cameron Seely had done a good job.


The directors have executed the film well with the perfect screenplay by Michael Lesieur and Tommy Swerdlow. The conversation between three friends Max, Grinch and Fred are fantastically designed and they are very impressive too. The voice cast is superb and all the stars had done a perfect job. The subplots are also designed perfectly. The music and the editing are also good. The animation works are excellent.
