Average enough stuff that will distract kids
23 August 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When his expedition finds a hidden entrance to the liar of a legendary thief in the Egyptian desert, Scrooge discovers a map hidden in the (mostly worthless) possessions that are recovered. The map leads him closer to finding the treasure that he has searched for most of his life – a magical lamp containing a genie and three wishes for the holder. Unaware of what he has, it is Scrooge's nephews that uncover the genie and befriend him. But when Merlock, the genie's 'master' comes looking for the genie, Scrooge will fight to protect his newfound acquisition.

I know I used to watch Duck Tales as a child because I found myself humming along absentmindedly to the theme music but I cannot remember much more than that. This was not a problem though as I only watched it to act as a bit of a trip down memory lane for me. The plot is OK for this sort of thing and allows plenty of silly antics as well as just doing enough for the duration to actually give the film somewhere to go towards the end to create a certain amount of actual drive for the antics. This is not to say it is a great affair because it isn't, but under tens should enjoy it enough to distract them for just over an hour.

The animation is colourful and, even if it is uninspiring it still does the job and never feels cheap or rushed out. The voice work is pretty good but I, like many others I think, found the voices of Huey and crew to be rather annoying even if one must give Taylor his dues for doing several voices. Young does a simple job on Scrooge, Taylor is fun as the genie and Libertini is quite fun as the comic relief. Lloyd is a nice addition for adults and he has a great presence thanks to his distinctive voice work but he has little to do and, to be honest, the voice work doesn't really stand out that much.

Overall this is OK fare for under tens but I must admit that it is unlikely to draw any audience other than that. Those seeking childhood memories may enjoy it and be glad to find that it is quite well made even if it is unspectacular but it is not worth watching if you have not experienced it before now. Tape it off TV and you'll find it useful enough to keep young children happy but I doubt many adults find it useful in any ways other than a babysitter.
