Movie Review: "Lubavinator 3: Rise of The Lubavitchers"
JEWLYWOOD, CA — [TheKnish.com] I was very impressed with the latest installment of the "Lubavinator" series. A powerful being that is part Lubavitcher Chasid and part Mitzvah Tank is sent back from the future to prevent a quart of cholov yisroel milk from spoiling.
The hero is played very convincingly by Aron Shwartzenberger. Although a bit stoic at times, he shows emotional range when he is confronted by a can of non cholov yisroel gasoline. Shwartzenberger is torn between his thirst and his teachings.
The action is fast and furious. When the Lubavinator runs after and catches a man who didn't put tefilin on, the camera pulls you into the chase. The Lubavinator finally agrees to let the man go when he convinces the Lubavinator that he is a non-Jewish Haitian immigrant.
What really set this movie apart from its predecessors was the special effects. The $2 million massive budget was put to good use. During the climactic scene, when the Lubavinator leads the Tzivos Hashem in an epic battle against the Satmar-orc hordes, the massive amounts of sights and sounds make you feel like part of the production.
The strongest and most inspiring cord is struck when the Lubavinator reassures a Lubavitch boy who is depressed about the Rebbe's passing. He listens quietly, looks off into the distance and says, "He'll be back!"
I give this movie five out of five Ahava chocolate stars.
