Dora and the Lost City of Gold has something in it for the young and the young-at-heart

Some might feel that the movie has very few redeeming qualities short of children under the age of 12. Dora and the Lost City of Gold reminded me of all the great adventure movies I enjoyed as a kid. It feels more like H. Rider Haggard than Steven Spielberg, but Dora and the Lost City of Gold has something in it for the young and the young-at-heart.

This applies equally to her encounters with the mischievous Alejandro (Eugenio Derbez) as he rescues the four intrepid teenagers when they arrive in Peru. Derbez is an absolute hoot to watch as he suffers through one pratfall after another, usually at the expense of Dora. It isn’t malicious, but it enhances Dora’s resourcefulness, and this is a credit to Isabela Moner’s performance.
