An Unusual & Detailed Fragment
8 June 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The surviving fragment of "The Centaurs" shows it to be an unusual and detailed piece of animation by Winsor McCay. The creatures and the backgrounds are drawn with considerable care and interesting detail that would almost have made it worth looking at even if there weren't any action.

The half-human, half-horse centaur is one of the most popular of the fantastic creatures from mythology, and McCay's depiction of them works almost as well as any computer- generated image could. The two parts of the creatures fit together well, with the human part giving them personality and the horse part giving them a stylish appearance. The woods, hills, and meadows are also drawn very nicely.

What exists of the movie doesn't last very long, but it tells enough of a story to show what the whole might have been like and to make it worth seeing.
