The recently released movie, Abominable, was exceptional. Staring Chloe Bennet as Yi, Tenzing Norgay Trainor as Jin, and Albert Tsai as Peng, a group of kids who are on a mission to bring a baby yeti back to its home. As seen on Google, 91% of users liked this movie and gave it a rating of 7.3/10.

The story begins with a baby yeti being held captive in an experimental laboratory. The yeti breaks out and is chased by the people in the laboratory. It then hides on a teenage girl’s roof, only to be discovered by her in the middle of the night. They were both scared of each other at first, but slowly started to get along and become more comfortable. After about 2-3 days, the yeti was found by the swarming helicopters flying around the city 24/7. The yeti was frightened and was about to flee when he kidnapped Yi, the teenage girl, and brought her along with the goal of getting home to Mount Everest.

Yi’s friend Peng and his cousin Jin tried to follow Yi and the Yeti, but little did they know that they were on their way for a long trip. As the group of four were adventuring to many different places and encountering troubling situations, they all went through hardships, learning curves, and even bonded on their journey to Mount Everest. Yi showed great perseverance throughout the whole movie, even when she was at her lowest. She kept getting back up and she kept trying. She was destined to get that yeti back home, no matter what it took.

Overall, the plot of the story was amazing and full of life lessons. There were multiple heart-warming moments and I would definitely watch this movie again. This movie is rated PG and I recommend it as a must see. I give this movie an 8/10.
