Bugs battling lions? I sure didn't see that coming!
25 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am an avid Looney Tunes fan, and I love Roman Legion-Hare. It is a little slow and obvious to begin with, but once it picked up I forgot about these minor misgivings. The animation is excellent, colourful, crisp and smooth, the backgrounds especially and like it is with many Looney Tunes cartoons the music has a lot of energy. The dialogue is witty and incredibly funny, Bugs and Sam both have a lion's share of great lines, and the sight gags particularly in the lion's den(Nero playing a violin before supposedly being mauled by the lions) are clever. Sam has great lines and is a great foil, he doesn't look too bad in Roman gladiator garb either, and Nero(a caricature on Charles Laughton?) is good too, but Bugs steals the cartoon just by his wit alone. Mel Blanc as always is superb, bringing life to these characters with terrific gusto. Overall, terrific. 10/10 Bethany Cox
