” A lot of weird stuff happens in Marwen, a lot of stuff that makes no sense.” Steve Carrel’s Mark ” Hoggy” Hogancamp says this late in the film and I can’t think of any other way to sum up Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen.
Welcome to Marwen is absurd. The animated sequences are completely odd and unfortunately ruin the film.
The humor is the lowest hanging fruit and unfunny. The bright spot in the film are the actors and some of the live action scenes and the story behind Marwen.
Steve Carrel and Leslie Mann are great! Unfortunately the intercutting of animation throws off any drama or emotion the live action shots invoke.
